Particularly  difficult to choose for are 10 years old boys but this is where Wicked Uncle comes to your rescue with a perfect choice for gifts for 10 year old boys

My first choice of stocking filler is chocolate ! and who on earth can resist that that ?! Chocolate in the shape of a game controller is very apt for the ten year old boy age group.

The Autistic Way Is the Best Way For Me

 When I was diagnosed a few years ago it finally put pay to me feeling like an alien in my own thoughts in some sort of way , being diagnosed has come a long way but it still has a while to go for it to be uniformed and not a postcode lottery to where you live.Children are facing at least a 2 year delay if not longer in being diagnosed and adults are facing even longer , the support after you are 25 very much varies where you live.It shouldn't be this way but you have to fight for what you want or least an an advocate on your side . Life for me now is much easier but still I have to battle on getting an ADHD diagnosis which I have just had to join yet another waiting list.

Honestly choosing a coat this morning was easier but frustrating I picked out what I thought was a suitable coat at M & S and purchased this along with one onion and a packet of mushrooms. But alas I had forgot my purse and I backed up the queue with pensioners chomping on their false teeth ) probably) wanting to get their fix of egg custards of which M & S do some very nice ones. I came home got my purse and then went and bought a completely different coat from Trespass.

I see the world very differently and honestly it it a joy through my eyes and I particularly love captioning art with captions , I am like that Nun who used to be on the BBC talking about the art . Well except I am not a Nun I think I would make a Nun blush. Anyway hello and I am back !

Choose plants that are well-suited to your climate and soil type, and make sure to provide them with the right amount of care and attention.

      3 Good drainage.

      Good drainage is essential for healthy plants so make sure your soil is well draining by adding organic matter such as compost or peat moss. Additionally make sure your posts or containers have drainage holes to allow excess water to escape.

      4. Water Properly 

      Proper watering is crucial for plant growth and health . Be sure to water your plants deeply and throughly, rather than just sprinkling the surface. Avoid overwatering as this can lead to root rot and other problems.

      5. Use Organic Fertilisers 

      Chemical fertilisers can be harmful to the environment and may damage beneficial organisms in your soil. Instead use organic fertilisers such as compost or manure to provide your plants with the nutrients they need to thrive.

      Pests can be a major problem in any garden. To keep them at bay, consider using natural pest control methods such as companion planting, insecticidal soap, or neem oil. Additionally, be sure to keep your garden clean and tidy to discourage pests from taking up residence.Pests can be a major problem in any garden.

      The Science Of Love : Why We're Genetically Engineered to Love Cats

      Cats have been a source of love and companionship for humans for centuries. From ancient Egypt to modern day, cats have been a part of human life and culture. Whether it's the purring of a kitten or the cuddles from an adult cat, their presence in our lives has brought us joy and comfort. While cats may not always be the most obedient animals, there is no denying that they bring us immense amounts of love. Even if you don't own one yourself, chances are you know someone who does - or at least someone who loves cats! Whether it's their playful nature, their mysterious behaviour or simply their cute faces - cats are beloved by many.

      A cat is a commitment who will demand a lifetime of Amazon boxes to sleep in , it's as if cats know that we like to shop and their deserve to reuse cardboard boxes for the love of the planet is admiral.The Science of Love: Why We're Genetically Wired to Adore Cats

      Are you a self-proclaimed cat lover? Do you find yourself melting at the sight of those adorable whiskers and fuzzy paws? Or maybe you're not quite sure what all the fuss is about when it comes to feline affection. Either way, get ready to learn why we humans are genetically wired to adore cats! In this blog post, we'll dive into the science of love and explore how our brains react when we see these cute creatures. So grab your favorite kitty and settle in for a purrfectly informative read!

      Introduction to the Science of Love

      It’s no secret that many of us are madly in love with our cats. In fact, a recent study found that nearly 80% of Americans think their cats are cute. But what is it about these furry little creatures that we find so irresistible?

      Turns out, there may be some science behind our love for cats. A new study published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology suggests that our affinity for cats is hardwired into our brains.

      The study authors say that this “feline-human bond” is similar to the bond we share with our dogs and other pets. And like those bonds, it’s rooted in evolution.

      According to the study, the bond between humans and cats dates back thousands of years to the days when we first started living together. At first, this relationship was likely one of convenience; having a cat around meant there were fewer mice or rats in the house.

      But over time, this relationship changed. As we began to domesticate cats and they became more reliant on us for food and shelter, they also became more attached to us emotionally. And we, in turn, developed strong feelings for them as well.

      Today, this evolutionary bond is still going strong. In fact, it may even be stronger than ever before thanks to social media and the internet. Nowadays, we can’t get enough of pictures and videos of cute cats doing adorable things. And it

      How Our Brains Respond to Cats

      There's no denying that cats have taken over the internet and our hearts. But why do we love them so much? Turns out, it might be because of evolution.

      Humans and cats have been living together for thousands of years, and during that time, we've developed a special bond. Studies have shown that when we interact with cats, our brains release oxytocin, the "love hormone." This bonding hormone is also released when we hug our loved ones or look into their eyes.

      So what does this mean for our relationship with cats? It means that we're genetically wired to love them! And as any cat lover knows, once you fall in love with a cat, it's hard to imagine life without them.

      The Benefits of Owning a Cat

      There are scientifically-proven benefits to owning a cat – even if you’re not a “cat person.” Studies have shown that people who own cats have lower blood pressure and longer lifespans than those who don’t. They also tend to be less stressed and more emotionally stable.

      So why are we so genetically wired to adore cats? One theory is that it all started with the Egyptians. Cats were revered in Ancient Egyptian culture and thought to be sacred animals. This led to them being domesticated, which then spread to other parts of the world.

      Another theory is that we love cats because they offer us companionship without demanding too much attention. They provide us with emotional support without being clingy or needy. And they’re low-maintenance pets that are relatively easy to take care of.

      Whatever the reason, there’s no denying that cats have a special place in our hearts – and science proves it!

      The History of Humans and Cats

      Though cats were once wild animals, they have been living alongside humans for at least 9,500 years. The first domesticated cats were likely Egyptian, and their popularity spread through the Roman Empire. Cats were revered by many cultures and seen as symbols of good luck, fertility, and protection. In medieval Europe, they were believed to be able to ward off evil spirits, and they were often kept in monasteries and churches.

      Cats continued to be popular throughout the centuries, and today they are one of the most popular pets in the world. It is estimated that there are over 500 million domestic cats in the world. Cats have often been portrayed in art and literature, and their unique personalities have captivated people for millennia.

      Different Breeds of Cats

      There are over 70 different breeds of cats, each with their own unique set of traits and behaviors. While all cats share some commonalities, such as being carnivores and having fur, there is a wide range in size, shape, and personality among different breeds.

      Siamese cats, for example, are typically very vocal and outgoing, while Russian Blue cats are more shy and reserved. Some breeds, like the Devon Rex, have very short fur that requires little grooming, while others, like the Persian, have long, luxurious coats that need daily brushing.

      No matter what your preferences are, there is sure to be a breed of cat that is perfect for you!

      Challenges of Owning a Cat

      Caring for a cat can be challenging at times, as they require a lot of attention and care. They also have specific dietary needs and can be prone to health problems. However, these challenges are well worth it when you consider the companionship and love that a cat can provide.


      From the chemistry of love to evolutionary traits, it's clear that humans have a long-standing connection with cats. Cats invoke feelings of happiness and provide us with unconditional love; they are truly worthy companions for our homes. With so much evidence backing up the science of why we adore cats, it's no wonder that they remain one of the most popular pets in homes across the world. If you're looking to add some furry fun into your home, consider adopting a cat today!
