Moving away, briefly, from cat related news, today has been a busy one.
Four new tyres on the car (thank you blackcircles.com for screwing up the original order), and… yeah ok, I think everything else is cat related.
Booked Ollie into the vet to get jagged, snipped and chipped. Bought some “cat grass” and a fab new toy, a little laser pointer which kept him amused for about 30 minutes until, eventually, I got bored. Then headed to IKEA to buy a HOL unit in which he’ll have a nice secluded place for his litter tray (see the second part of this post for my inspiration).
A quick visit to Aldi scored me a nice cheap thin ski jacket, just in time for all the snow outside, and I’ve finally, after playing several different games over the past few nights at different houses, succumbed and ordered a Wii. Should arrive tomorrow, fingers crossed. Will need an extra controller and I already have Mario Strikers, still to get Mario Olympics and then some others before I splurge for Guitar Hero. I played that for the first time on Hogamany and got 93% in my first go (helps when you know the tune, Sunshine of your Love by Eric Clapton).
Also managed to get a little work done, and have started picking photos to put up on the wall once the Christmas decorations have come down (on Sunday). I’ll pull together a longlist which Louise will narrow down to the final 12 (9? How many frames did we buy?).
That aside, the past few days have been largely focussed on the new addition to our home. It’s been a learning experience, which is still continuing, but we are loving every second. Ollie is settling in well, and aside from the odd scratch on a wall here and there, he’s been good as gold. We’ve just started worming treatment though, as he’s “dragging” across the carpet. Still, it’ll take a little time but we’ll get him in tip-top condition soon.
I am NOT looking forward to work on Monday, but I’ll worry about that, on Monday!
