2009 already?

Blimey. We got back from Wales and relative-visiting yesterday to find little piles of cat-vomit (fur-balls), and a large pile of cat on our bed. In our haste to leave, we (I) had left the stair gate unlocked, and the kitchen door open, and the cat had made full use of the facilities. I am guessing that all the furballs are his, and that he has not had a party and invited his mates round for a booze-up. But then who really knows what they get up to whilst our backs are turned...

And then apparently it was New Years Eve last night! I was asleep on the sofa at eleven, from sheer exhaustion of packing, unpacking, setting up the travel cot, being sociable and smiley, packing, driving, unpacking, setting up the... etc etc. Not that we were planning to do much, what with a small child upstairs asleep, but more than a glass of wine would have been good!

So... Happy New Year! I wish you all the best for 2009, and I hope it is a happy, healthy and fun one for all of us :)

I hate it when our cats leave us little gifts. What a wonderful thing to come home to.

LOL @ your cat! Our cats brought us a dead mouse today ... been a long time since that happened. I was truly appreciative that it was in one piece & not left somewhere for us to find!

I am jealous of your trip to Wales! We probably won't be able to go until 2010, but I am making it a goal this year (see Jan 1 JYC page) to learn Welsh!

Happy New Year Sarah! Glad you had fun at Bellaboo ;)

Can you imagine your cat's glee at finding
'hey, I'm not shut in the kitchen on my own'
'hey, I can get upstairs and no one is stopping me'
'oooh I can sleep on the bed'
I'm guessing it can hardly wait until you go away again!

Happy New Year Sarah, Hope 2009 is a good one!

I've got this mental image of cats having a booze-up now. "Hey, maaaan, stop bogarting the 'nip!"

Yes, I will be going to the Stitch & Craft show- would you like to meet up? It may help the claustrophobia if you have someone to chat with on the tube.

I haven't booked tickets yet, was trying to remember which day was "scrapbooking day". Sunday, is it?
