    1. Hi Ste, thank you so much. Daisy is the most boisterous/naughty, probably of all three of my pigs. Snow the quietest, but she has had a ton of hits too, with her nose twitches in the right place on her birthday video, and Chestnut is learning how to be naughty from Daisy.

  1. Great message Sandra and I agree totally 🙂 Lovely to see you and Daisy, she made a wonderful debut appearance I might add, always good to see a hint of mischief 😉 I’ve been out of the loop, sorry for not coming by as often as I would normally. It’s been one thing after the other, lately technical issues, but hopefully getting back on track again. Have a great week, take care and be in touch again soon 🙂 xx

    1. Hi Sherri; thank you. I have had time to comment much lately. Besides my two jobs (I work teaching now, for the NHS), I have been immensely busy with building my websites to formulate my World Of Quirky organisation for my self-employment. 4 more to go, then I can finally finish my Break through the barriers of redundancy book. I am also trying to upload a video once a week to my http://www.youtube.com/user/quirkybooksTV channel and publish more inspirational messages. Glad you agree and I will pass the compliment on to Daisy. Sorry to hear about all of the problems you have been having, I hope they there are no more. It’s always great to hear from you. Huge hugs xx

  2. Love Daisy but I have to say that I am a person who tells my son to stop crying, and that is because my son has two different cries, he has the real genuine cry which he lets forth when he is upset or hurt and he is never reprimanded for but he also has his I want cry, to anyone who does not know him they would not know the difference and I am sorry if it upsets anyone else but I will tell him to stop that and that it won’t work on me and he is not going to get his own way. Every parent knows there one child best and while there are some terrible parents out there it is not fair to judge when you are not in full command of all the facts

    1. Hi Paula, thank you for your valid point of view and telling me the way you feel. I can understand where you are coming from, and you did right to express your opinion and give us another view point. Thank you so much for leaving your comment.

      I know it’s different, but it just reminded me that my dad use to say my Grandma “put on tears” to get her own way, whether she did or didn’t, I still hugged her and said I loved her. Guess I am a big softy.

      1. My grandma just passed away but she actually did that too, sadly that seems to very much be a symptom of dementia and health professionals told my mum however hard she found it not to give in. With my son it is different he is really bright but he can also be a little terror with it another of his favourite ways of playing up is in the supermarket he hates having to stand in the queue so if you have to wait he will start saying he needs the toilet (he doesn’t I make a point of checking before I unload the trolley) but once your shopping is all on the belt he starts asking to go and if you say no he shouts at the top of his voice that he needs a poo and he needs to go now! I never shout or scream at him to be quiet I remain calm and simply state it is not going to work with me, though sadly it does work with certain other relatives despite them even knowing what he is doing

      2. I am sorry to hear about your Grandma, that must be difficult for you. Every family is different and I don’t always agree with health professionals. Sometimes situations aren’t how they appear to be, which is I guess what you are saying about kids shedding tears. My Grandma died on Friday, June the 13th, last year and she was one of my best friends. My dad said that about my Grandma, throughout her life. Whether it was true or not, even if my Grandma had of been putting it on, it wasn’t important to me. In fact, because I hugged her and told her I loved her regardless, she loved me all the more, because I accepted her just the way she was. Warts and all, if you like.
        That must be embarrassing for you with your son and good for you for not raising your voice, that takes some self control.

      3. Sorry to hear of your loss as as well as you say every family is different, I guess part of the reason it is easy to remain patient with my son is I know how luck I am to have him, he survived meningitis at 7 months and that is the same reason other family members still spoil him 6 years later, he has overcome speech problems and although there are still issues around language and socialisation he has come so far already, I am very proud of him but I will still give him tough love when it is required

      4. Hi Paula, thank you. That is amazing, you must be immensely proud of him for getting over that and overcoming speech problems. As you know, I have furry kids and I often say I live with them, they rule my home, bless them. Daisy has survived two major operations and has genetic problems so has to get checked and kept an eye on a lot. Tough love is hard and I guess maybe that’s just not in my nature. Daisy can’t have carrots, because of being told that carrots contributed to her mum’s (Snuggles) liver damage, and therefore to her death last year. I still get upset about her death. It also cause her tummy lumps to increase in size. Thankfully she doesn’t really miss carrots and neither does Chestnut who lives with her. I still find it hard to not give her a little bit, but I can’t. When she had her X-ray recently, no lumps could be seen. That means here lumps are tiny, it’s so good.

      5. My two giggle pigs as my son calls them are not fans of carrot and one of them Buddy will not touch apple, they both prefer anything green celery and courgettes are the big favourites but the real treat is once a week when they get their spinach and they love parsley as a treat occasionally as well, tough love is never easy just sometimes it has to be done, tough love with piggies is impossible mine live in my bedroom (long story to do with how we ended up with the second one) but the minute I turn the lights off and get into bed one starts rattling the water bottle and the other starts talking to me lol

      6. Hi Paula, my piggies live in my bedroom with me, at the foot of my bed, in two indoor cages. I love them being near. I love noise and the noises they make. They tend to be too quiet for me sometimes – Snuggles use to be nice and loud. Sometimes, you can’t hear a pin drop, because all 3 of them are so quiet – Not the case around my mum’s apparently. My guineapigs are spinach addicts. They need to go to the spinach addiction clinic. They are very fussy to and will only eat, for example, green beans from Sainsbury’s, rather than Tesco. I ended up finishing the ones off from Tesco’s last time. They like parsley too, that I get as a treat sometimes.

    1. Hi Marilyn, thank you. I am glad you agree. It really makes me feel upset when I hear that. I just think of the message that sends to the child as they grow up. That they cannot be themselves. That they have to hide themselves away if they are sad, for fear of being condemned or told off for it. I think to myself, what is wrong with some people – Or at that moment in time, I feel like saying what is wrong with the world, why are people like this. Just let people be their quirky, natural self, however they feel. I realise it is not the world, but to that child it must feel like it. Even as adults, we can be frown upon if we cry. It’s natural, so why?
