I booked our flights for our annual holiday today!!! Double the price of last year mind you but at least they are booked now. I also sent off mine and Eddie's passports for renewal. Mine was sent back because my picture had changed so dramatically I needed a countersignature!!! Good times!

It's been work, work, work recently. I am working all the hours that I can and it still seems not enough. Oh well, at least I am working.

My ipod died yesterday. I was poised today to march into HMV and demand a replacement when Jase (technical genius that he is) got it working. Well, he pushed the on button after it had rebooted itself but he still claims credit.

I am taking pics of Milo this weekend so you can all see how he has grown! He is so sweet and loving, he really is a lovely cat. Buffy is 3 now. Not much time left for her :( Eddie watches the cage daily but she is still holding on to life much to Milo's disgust!

Well, off to have a cup of tea now. Thank God I have kept the weight off so I don't have to buy a new summer wardrobe!!

Out With The Old

I can honestly say I couldn't be more proud to be around today. I am not American but as I watch the live feed here in the UK I feel priviliged to be able to watch history take place and for once for the right reasons.

I have a feeling that President Obama's term/s will be great. I hope the small minority of "doubters" will be silenced. I hope Obama displays actions as well as words. Time will tell, but I have a good feeling...

So, from across the pond, congrats to all Americans today as your new President is sworn in. May he be great, true and just...

America has her voice.. Now lets hear her roar!!!

Just when you think everything is fine your boss your friend shafts you by taking away 8 of your hours. I now have to find another job to make the money up... *sigh*

Saturday, Saturday

As I sit listening to Eddie playing on Club Penguin giggling away I think back to when he was just a smiling little baby... Would I do it again? Hell, NO! HAHA! Bet you thought I was broody...No chance!

We had to take Ed to the docs today. He has been complaining about his ears for a while now. Being a fan of tough love I have been giving him Ibrobrufen and letting him get on with it. After all, the ear wasn't hanging off or anything. Imagine my mortification when he cries. Eddie never cries. He has an ear infection, love him. Antibiotics ahoy and no swimming for a week. That said, he has done all his homework and now is rewarded with computer time.

I am shortly going to buy another digital camera. MY camera has been hijacked by Jase for work. I never got it back and now cannot take pictures. Moral of the story? If you don't want your wife to buy another camera LEAVE HERS ALONE!!!!!!

Don't You Just Love It?

I bid you welcome to my first entry of 2009. Things have calmed down now so I finally had time to revisit my Journal.

Milo was neutered yesterday. Now I hear the men out there sigh in sympathy but it needed to be done the cat was BONKERS! Bless him, he was very brave and got many, many cuddles. However, today I got home and was greeted by 3 fluffy faces on my stairs. The older 2 legged it as if to say: "It wasn't us" leaving Milo looking like a rabbit in the headlights. A quick sniff confirmed something nasty in my bath. Ewwww...... A quick spray of bleach and several Flash wipes later punctuated with "Dear Lord" and "Milo really" it was all cleaned up. I was a bit concerned though and Milo was taken to the vet. Turns out poor little thing had reacted to the anesthetic. As I said to the vet, Poop in the bath I can handle. Poop on my carpet I can't. Milo is now starved until tomorrow then on a bland diet. He has had a bad 2 days.

I am now a year older. My birthday was last Friday. Had a lovely day and saw my many friends. Saw Mum and Dad on Sat for a yummy chinese. Had Sunday lunch. Much eating was done. the vets today I ran into a girl who I went to school with. She was always skinnier than me, more popular etc. Imagine my delight when I saw she was about 3 times the size of me. I sat very smugly as she exclaimed through gritted teeth that I had lost loads of weight. Now, I know it sounds really petty but made my fricking year!!!!!!!!!It's only 15th Jan.

2009 bodes well..........
RIP Ricardo Montalban.

Dammit he was good. Happy hunting around the moons of Jupitar!
