Still under the weather.

That’s right. All three of us now are feeling terrible.
We spent a very quiet weekend, pottering, playing cards, playing with Aesop’s trainset and with a nice bit of a stroll to town yesterday afternoon for some fresh air.
Today has been mostly spent in the position you see above: watching dvd’s. I’ve opted out on a few screenings, in order to tidy and to internet-look, but I dare say Abraham and Aesop have watched the hungry caterpillar, the berenstein bears and maybe bert and ernie at least twice each. If any of us were feeling any better, we’d be smart to go down to the shop and get more of a selection, but alas. Perhaps tomorrow we’ll be better enough for Abraham to go to work and for Aesop and I to venture out into the world again.
Did any of you spy the little ears poking up next to Aesop? That’s right! We’ve got a cat! Not particularly by choice mind you..
My mum and dad have gone overseas for 10 weeks, and much to the disgust of my Mother she discovered the cattery place wanted about $7 a day for them to look after Porridge. So while mum loves Porridge very much, there was no chance they were forking out nearly $500 for her to stay somewhere she’d hate anyway. So poor porridge (who might I add has never a very social cat at the best of times..) was uprooted after what I calculate to be at least 8 years of living in one place, and plonked at my house, where feeding is slightly erratic, and a noisy toddler brings her toys to look at, and tries to convince her to ride his bike!
Luckily for us, after a few days of hiding in one of my fabric shelves, she emerged and has joined the family. She’s the friendliest she’s ever been! Cuddling up to me, allowing Aesop to pat her, and pull her tail once in awhile, and snuggling up on the bed to watch dvd’s with him. It’s quite nice actually (despite the coating of fur the house now has), and Aesop loves the company.

So there you go. I’ll certainly not be filling my blog/flickr with pictures of her (or giving her a blog of her own?! Seriously?), but perhaps I’m more of a cat person than I thought!

Hi sweet, ahh it’s like a pick me up just reading it, real life, it has an amazing way of putting things in perspective (something of which I’ve had little to none of over the last two weeks)(poor poor Tony). Anyway hope the duvet time has made you feel better, even if its just in a warming of the heart way : )
ps i finally ‘got around’ to trying to find some of my coats on Saturday, got around to meaning a last minute panicking & random clothes going in every direction when only the one & only big blue wool coat with a collar that reaches the top of your head when you do it up tight will do. of course I never found it, but will photo you when I do.
You’re the friendliest person, and an inspiration, in case you didn’t know ~Lou
pps I’ve gotta go to town now for a friends birthday sushi/sake dinner – will take notes, it might be a new sushi restaurant for your next welly visit.

Comment by melissa

I’m so pleased that despite being under the weather, you can still have mini orgasms over my fabric stash!!!

Be assured that you are not the only messy messy lady, in fact, I’m rather fond of the method in madness approach myself…..All you need to do is remember that we all pretty much always shove the mess out of the way, then take pictures of the pretty bits!
I’m sure that in some of the photos I admire there’s kitty litter or unfinished dishes, or dirty laundry just outside the frame of the shot…..hee hee!!

Hope you feel better soon, pretty lady…
