Every time I happen to glance at this has a different cat in it. Tankie and Nicademus seem to be taking it in turn.
Goodness me, sometimes I'm a I've been sat here for half an hour thinking just how much pain I have today and I've realised that I haven't took my I'm off to take them now....I've just taken's now going to take another half an hour for them to work. I can't believe I did I did think that I was turning into a moaning minnie.
And now to the kittens...the black and white one is now called the fiesty one. 3 of the kittens now have their eyes open and are all getting bigger every day. Flossie is being so's so sweet to hear her talking to them.
