I'm Anita :) I'm into books, nature, road trips to anywhere and all things animal-related. I am occasionally a creator of interesting things, always an avid thinker, some kind of sporadic wordsmith, and forever a photographer.

Enjoy your time here and don't forget to feed the animals.

Oh look, hungry fish!

This was only a small section of the library at the magnificent Longleat House - by far my favourite room of the whole house. It is such a dream to have a room lined with books, nevermind such beautiful ones! More than worth a visit.

A kitty cat we met on our many travels this week. 


cute little thing i found at this lovely vintage shop downtown

This is a lion making a kill in the wild. I know it’s very graphic but I think it’s important to show just how brutal nature can be.

Partly to counteract that last post, here is the beautiful giraffe we fed yesterday at Longleat Safari Park. It was one of the best parts to the day! We were given leafy branches to feed to them and this little madam was the first there. The way they eat is quite amazing - they just strip all the leaves from the branches in one go. Such a wonderful experience :)

Your arse is horrendous && you only like marvel to please your trollish partner. Silly munt.


Despite the subject not being up for discussion, it’s pretty weird that you even have an opinion on my arse. I’m quite fine with it (my arse, I mean) anyway so I guess you’re entitled to your opinion, however creepy. And, along with millions of other people, I enjoy certain marvel films (amazingly, I was aware of them before I met my bf) but he and I have different opinions on them. Even if we didn’t, so what? You couldn’t have found anything more inane to try and insult me with. Trolling really isn’t your strong suit. So why are you trying?

Have you got nothing better to do with your life? Maybe read a book, go outside, talk to real people, decide to be a nice person. I’m sure that when you’re not sending so many unnecessary anonymous messages laden with ignorance, egocentricity and your own obvious insecurities, you can be a lovely person with everything to give; but, if this is really who you want to be right now then it’s time to crawl back under your bridge where you belong. I don’t have time for your immaturity any more. If you honestly have a legitimate problem with me, you are welcome to send me a message without cowering behind anonymous, and we’ll talk. Otherwise, move along now.

The beams in this room are lovely :)

Considering we were going to be camping in this weather, this is a nice improvement :)

This Day In History: The film adaptation of Mary Poppins was released by Disney on August 27, 1964

The author of the original book, P.L. Travers, was not thrilled with the film to say the least, but she did go on to write several sequels to the successful story. Did you know one was a cookbook?
