time to tighten that money belt.

I’ve gone and listed a couple of things on ebay. Its the first time I’ve done this so here’s hoping it all works. please visit my items and bid furiously: nintendo DS lite white and sqeezebox

Let me know if those links do not work. I’m sure at some point the session ID will time out and the link will break.

We’re still up to our eyeballs in cat doo, mainly runny and splattered all over the place. All from one cat, Otis is fine. We’re not happy at all and Scotty in a mood is not to be sniffed at by any cat. Poor Jasper really got the raw end of Scotty’s anger this morning. To the point that Jasper ran upstairs and peed on the kitchen floor. At this point I know he’s not happy and telling him off and rubbing Jaspers nose in it is not resolving the situation. I really need some more time at home to sort him out. I do worry about our boys. I don’t want them to be ill. I have booked vets and got all the care instructions I can from the rescue place we got them from. At least now I know what I need to do. Its all a matter of applying it.

In good news, the new car is coming home tomorrow. I’m looking forward to it. I’ve been bouncing about at home dancing and singing “new toy! new toy!”

I’m still worried about mum too. This week is going to be tough for her and I think I may just take a drive out to see her anyway. I saw mum yesterday after her chemo and she looked happy if a little tired. She gave me the silk for my wedding dress which means I now have to book another appointment with my dress maker to get it to her.

Then back on to the wedding we’ve near as dammit got numbers for the event. It looks like around 80. Now we have to do invites and catering. These are daunting me a little but I’m sure at some point I’ll bite the bullet and dig in and get it done.

Finally I’ve found myself too tired to knit of an evening so I’ve been adding to the games I like on-line links section on the bottom right of this page. Go and play some. Them’s good for passing an evening when I’m tired.

about which I blather.

August 29, 2007

there are several small items to cover today.

1, knitting scouts! I’m not going to put the badges up for myself but for those out there who knit, they are funny and cool. I’ve been meaning to link them for a while and have just not got around to it. As you can see this blog is badge and button free. I try and keep things clean and tidy. Which reminds me, i’ve got loads of people to add as links in the friends and knitting blogs sections. I just don’t get round to it again!

I’ve given up playing kingdom of loathing. It was great fun for a while but at the point I had to repeat the same actions just to get anywhere every day I got bored. I gave Scotty all my collections of bits and bobs. I removed my Mr Accessory and therefore over time the account will be removed. I don’t regret playing and now at least I understand when others wibble on about it. I just don’t have time to play and do other things that are more important.

Now normally I put up small linking pictures to flickr but in this case you need a larger image.

Now how cute is that! he’s an absolute darling and always wanting a hug. This time he went to the router for a hug. We are seriously considering getting another indoor cat that can be his friend. He is way too lonely in the day. I wish we could both be home more but we cant. He seems happy enough but there are tell tale signs that he needs just a little extra company.

I took some photos of the chutney and chutney jars and plums and tamarind. Its easier just to give you short links on those. Last night I chopped all the apples given to us from mum and dads garden (old garden as they move TODAY!) cooked them up and added back all the plum and tamarind chutney. It was very vinegary, we cooked it down and added over a kilo extra sugar. Now its more like it should be, deep and fruity and sweet. We have 4 of the big square jars full and two smallerish jars full. I measured against the pan before putting in the jar and there was around 7 leters. So who wants chutney? I cant post it but you can come and collect.

damn I forgot about erasmus in pants. Maybe I’ll surprise you one day with it.

we will go to the wedding

May 31, 2007

Scotty’s brother is getting married soon. All the holiday is booked, my brother is “cat sitting” as he lives round the corner, and we have a hotel booked too.

Now I don’t get to go to many weddings, I thinks its because I’m an insular sort, I don’t let that many people very close to me. Although there are many I would call close friends and good colleagues and great Internet mates. These last two are the sorts where making a wedding list is going to get complicated. Where do the friendships start after chatting on line? I should know these answers as I am going to marry someone I met on the Internet. Also which colleagues to invite without offending others. Its all so confusing, although the other night I did ask again when are you going to marry me? Scotty replied “next year isn’t it? I’m sure we decided on that” which put me at ease. Now if only I had a magic wand to make it all organised.

oh and for Kingdom of Loathing fans I’m in ronin and have been since Monday. I have managed to get it so today I will blossom out of ronin like a swan. I managed to prepare really quite well, most camp ground equipment has been placed. Never ascend without a meat maid in your locker! I wonder if that sounds as mad to non Kol’ers as I think it does.

I’ve just found where all our old computers go…

May 22, 2007

I work for a large company, they lease computers for us to use and then return them back to be refurbished and sold on.

Shock of all shocks they sell them on ebay. Not that I want one mind. I know what they’ve been through.

I’m still toying with getting a mac to replace my home laptop. Something small because my old Compaq laptop at home is a huge wide screen beast which sounds like it needs a good hoover out because the fan is a bit blocked. Also the wireless card broke the other day. Dragging cables around the lounge is no fun. It is over 2 years old and struggling with any games. It used to play guild wars fine. I don’t play guild wars any more but I do play kingdom of loathing which is highly addictive. Just think how silly a text adventure can be and make it all point and click and you have the idea.

I know its not green to throw out and buy new, but there is still that I WANT A NEW TOY aspect to it all.  Saying that though I’ve got a list of new toys I want, as always! I’m even trying to think of items that we need to put on a wedding list. That is if I ever get around to arranging my own wedding. People that know me may think it will never happen. I’m still not sure until I can get someone to organize the whole thing for me for free. Not that I want the moon on a stick or anything.
