Good grief!

I had no idea how long it has been since I last called in here!!

Have been busy with poor Ernie the Handsomest Tabby ever - he is not only diabetic but has glaucoma and a misplaced lense in his eye...still handsome but bung-eyed. Doesn't need a Guide Dog yet tho'. Suffice to say the Vets is his second home recently but he is doing pretty well (both Ernie and the Vet's wallet).

Have been working crazy hours and places, love my new job very much but it does take me away from home a lot.

BIG NEWS - we finally settled with the insurance company last week (only took 4 years) and we are about to start rebuilding our home. Currently it is still standing/leaning and we are to have it demolished sometime in the next few week with The Rebuild contracted to start on 1 March if not before...can't explain how relived we all feel!! As happy as a bee with a bum full of honey!

To quote Peters and Lee "Welcome Home". We missed you.

I'm disgusted that it's taken 4 years just to get the insurers to settle. You must have been going insane.

But it is so nice to see you back. You've been missed.

Barry - thanks for that!! (And now I can't get that tune outta my head....)

Steve - I have been crazy quite a lot lately so you may be right!! And thank you, it's nice to be back. :-)

well, look who crawled back into blogland.
wait - does this mean you hadn't missed US in the last 5 months??

really, it's about bloody time that housing situation got sorted. I hope the new one gets built in a timely fashion.

sorry to hear about Ernie.

Hi Violet - Oh dear, yes I have missed the US (altho' a visit from my cousin who lives in Washington State helped!!) Poor Ernie is doing pretty good but isn't that keen on having eye drops twice a day along with his insulin needle! Am soooo looking forward to moving home again, hopefully around late October. :-)
