This, that, and everything in-between…

I’m just gonna throw everything into one post!  😀

The above is the birthday gift for the eldest grandkid… isn’t is simply the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen?

Other half got roped in to do extra work this weekened, and yesterday I felt ok, so decided to go with him (it was only 5 hours), with the plan to hopefully get an eyetest done on the day, and also to find a gift for the grankid… to be honest, I wasn’t certain I would accomplish either of the tasks in the 5 hours.

However, third optician I tired could test my eyes on the day!  Yay!  (More about that further down), and whilst I waited I popped into Primark… and spotted the dress.  Not just any dress.  The dress.  Oh how I wish they’d had it in my size!!!  But alas, I had to make do with one age 3-4 years.  😀

And then I spotted the sandals.  Oh how I wish they had them in my size!  Hahahaha!   And a big thank you to the lady who happened to be there with her three year old kid, and help me out getting the right size sandals.

Of course I couldn’t help myself, and added some stretchy bracelets, a hairband and some uber-cute sun glasses too.  All in all, the whole bunch, came out to only £17.50!


I was so lucky with the optician… not only that I could get an appointment on the day, but they were absolutely brilliant.  From the friendly and happy ladies in the shop, to the fab gent that tested my eyes.  I was well impressed.  And well chuffed hearing that my eyes are in perfect health (now nearly 2 months with massive eye floaters… it’s like living in a 1950s sci-fi film with UFO invasion coming at me)… which means there’s some tablets that I will be trying to score with the docs this week!  😀

Not gonna go into the whole doc saga at the moment, lets just say my doc has turned around completely (to the point he apologised for giving the impression he was a shitty doctor) – and I’m being referred to a specialist.  Yay!  But with eyes having been given the go-a-head, there’s some pills I could try until I see the specialist (it is however pills they won’t be too willing to hand out, nor pills I’m too happy about taking… but they might work… and at the moment, even a “might” is like a gift from the gods).

Anyway, if you ever need to have your eyes tested in Aberdeen, go see Jenson & Ledingham – they’re brilliant.


3 of the gorgeous little kittens are now with their new families…. and I’m not certain whether to make a smiley or sad face.  I’m overjoyed that they have gotten loving forever homes, but am missing them.  Little Claudia has gotten a whole big family that loves her to bits, and the two boys went with their new mummy today, and she was completely smitten with them.

The other two are still with us.  Loads of people interested… but none that I’ve been willing to let my little babies live with.  It’s very hard, but I’d rather they stay, than me not being 100% certain that they would get the perfect home.

Ms Monkey-pie’s boobies are dissappearing nicely – and if everything goes to plan she will be spayed this week!  😀


And on the subject of kitties – the kitties all tried the catfood Encore this week!  Oh my goodness was this a big hit!!!  Absolutely loved it, and no wonder – this stuff looks amazing – and doesn’t stink of goodness knows what, like all other catfood does… it smelt like fish.  It looked like fish.  Actually it looked a heck of a lot nicer than the cans of tuna I get for myself (myself, and myself… if a can of tuna is opened both cats and dogs get their share).  I know what to stock up on when the zombies comes… me and the kitties can share some Encore.  Hahahahaha.


And Boo’s gotten a tick.  Aaaaaaaaargh!  I fucking hate ticks… horrible creatures.  *shudders*  Spotted it this morning, and was hoping the other half could deal with it when he comes home tonight… but in the end I simply couldn’t stomach the thought of it, and had to remove the bastard.  First (and hopefully only) tick of the year, which means tick treatment from now until Autumn.


Otherwise I’ve caught up on The Walking Dead (I had seen season 1 and 2, but lost interest… and now tried season 3 again – and it was awesome (I you lost interest end of season 2, like I did – give it a go again – it’s get better!  So caught up on both season 3 and 4, and now cursing as there’s no more episodes.  Grrrrr), and now at a little loss of what to see.  I’m following Game of Thrones and Orphan Black, but I need something for the other nights of the week.

  1. Sounds like it’s been busy! And mostly in a good way, which is always a positive 🙂 So glad the little ones are finding happy homes – it’s so great you’re taking the time to find them proper forever homes.

    • The thing is, it’s clearly not ideal them living here, but if I for a second think that it they would be better off here, then they’re not going anywhere. 😀

      It;s important to me that they would be part of a family… not just “a pet”. But most that get in contact seem to think of them as a “cute kitten”, not a living, loving (and oh so destructive!) little being that will be a big part of their family for 15 years or thereabouts.

      I’m still in two minds about trying to re-advertise them… on one hand I would love for them to stay, on the other hand my tomcat would not be impressed with two more cats staying permanently. I will probably just leave it be until the mummy gets spayed (calling vets tomorrow, hopefully get it done this week)… and see how it goes… maybe the right family will get in touch meanwhile, maybe by then we’ll be too attached. 🙂

    • Aaaaaaaand… we’re too attached. 😀 Alya is now Demora, mummy’s little norty-girl, and Adele is now Mona, daddy’s little tummy-rub-girl. 😀

      Introduction to the dogs starting the weekend (I can feel my stress-levels rising just with the thought of it). 🙂

      • Lol – From the pictures I’ve seen, I can completely understand why! It’s hard to resist so much cuteness 🙂 Congratulations on your (officially) new additions! And good luck with the introductions! Looking forward to seeing much more kitty cuteness in the future 🙂

  2. Wow, what’s the secret to find homes for kittens. I have three adorable kittens in my garage and I can’t find anyone interested in taking on a kitten. sigh……
    What an absolutely adorable outfit! 🙂

    • Post online at places available for it. 😀 I don’t know what you got in the US – Craigslist? Also, if you’re on Facebook there might be groups for selling and rehoming pets in your area. 😀 Posters in local shops might do the trick – a nice picture so people can see how adorable they around should tempt a few. 🙂

      Price them high!!! Honestly, I have mine at a higher price than any other kittens available in the area. Loads of interest, but I’m picky. The price is there to make sure it filters out those that do not have the kittens best interest at heart (dog fights, and various other abuse). Sadly there’s still those who have the dosh and don’t mind paying, but I still feel would easily get fed up with a naughty kitten that ruins all furniture, and then ends up costing a bomb in various vet bills as they grow up into an adult cat.
