Here you will often find my thoughts of the day, with the occasional vent - but first and foremost this is where I can share my passion for stitching.

I have the power!!

Well, actually I have the "heat"! Woohoo!! My landlord has just been in - I now have the vent reinstalled in the toilet ceiling, and the ducted heating has been re-lit. He's very impressed with my tenancy, and has said it's OK to add a couple of picture hooks in the lounge ... AND it's OK for me to have a cat!! Now I have to make the decision whether to go ahead or not ... it would be so lovely to have the company - I really miss having a cat around, as I adored Rio, but I also have to weigh up the extra costs etc too. He's also asked me if I intend staying here long term, as he's thinking of getting rid of the real estate agent, and I can deal with him directly - which is fine by me, as the landlord seems really nice, and very fair and easy to deal with. I have his email addy and mobile number so it's easy to contact him, and he only lives just around the corner, so it's very handy. He's most impressed that I'm putting up curtains too haha.

So, that's all my news from this morning - not very exciting to anyone but me, but I'm rapt! Now I'm off to The Warehouse to check out cheapo glasses, if they have them - and tonight I'm off to a Hotline team dinner at The Curry Club in Richmond ... which will be fun :)

Hooray for heat and picture hooks but really hooray for the cat! I think you should get one - they don't cost too much to feed and if he or she is an indoor cat you wouldn't have to worry about flea treatment and worming tablets. That just leaves checkups, which are expensive. But I'm sure there are animals hospitals that do treatments cheaply and it's only once a year. Think of the company and benefits you'd get :)

Yay for heat and for being allowed a cat!!! :0) I agree with Nicki that cats are cheap to 'run' LOL. The vet bills can sting you a little bit, but you could always set a little money aside each payday so you have enough when the time comes for the annual vaccination or unexpected emergency so you are not stretched. But wise to think it through thoroughly since cats are for life, not just for Xmas. Tee hee.

Woohoo! It's about time you had some heat in there. :) I'm glad that you'll be more comfortable now. Let us know what you decide about acquiring a feline companion. I do so wish I wasn't allergic; I miss my cats from when I was younger.

Yay for heat! I know that must feel so much better.

Getting a pet is a big decision. I wouldn't trade our 3 for anything but we are having a hard time finding someone to watch them while we come to Australia. :( And boarding is so outrageous for 3. Weigh out your pros and cons. (I think that there are more pros:))

Oh sweetie - I know your rapture! It's just that mine is over the new central a/c system - blessed cool air. :D

I wonder what you'll decide about the kitty. I do enjoy ours, but he is quite independent and doesn't ask for lots of attention, except when he wants outside. Living alone as you do, a kitty would be nice to come home to - could be just what you need.
