After weeks of no laptop ( lost somwhere between the repairers & the transport folk - don't ask ) I have, as from today received a brand new replacement. Super. Microsoft 7 - hmm. 3GB and all bells & whistles...BUT I've lost quite a bit not the least of which were lots of stories :(. Ah me.
What I would like to ask is if anyone has been reading The Cat Whisperer? Can you remember who wrote it as I would dearly like to find it?

My thanks



Is anyone else having trouble accessing Peja's site - WOMB? All I get is that IE is not able to display the webpage.

I am in withdrawal.

My thanks



Blimey - when will it end? Woke up to snow and still snow now 12 hours later. Enough be enough! Plus I have a hospital appointment tomorrow but I figure that the elements have decided that if I can trudge through this lot then my replacement knee is wunderbar. Personally I would prefer to drive there and meet the physio's criteria that way- not Mother Natures. Hey ho..

Okay, here's the thing. The usual teen programmes have never clicked with me. Buffy, Merlin, SPN, the 9102million thingy? No interest, Zip. Nada.

So how come I am so enamoured with 'Glee'?

Answers on a postcard please - & any contributions for therapy gratefully received.

I was thinking about rain barrels. Seems to me that is what LJs &  the Twitter phenomena are. Shout in one & all you get are empty echoes.

Insomniac ravings.

Just ignore if you don't want to read the ramblings of an wrinkly who is sleep deprived and nauseated from her chemo - I can't do cuts etc.

So, instead of tossing & turning in bed   I decided to get up & watch TV. THe Golden Globes were on ( & good luck to 'A Single Man') and was waiting for the ceremony when I realised it would be hours yet. What we, the viewers, were gifted with was the view of the celebrity cake walk. Okay. but after 10 minutes I was seething.

There is the horror which is Haiti, eat or heat in the UK, war in Afghanistan, Iraq and starvation in 3rd world countries, almost world wide recession, grasping, greedy bankers /politicians and if I heard "And who are you wearing?" one more time, I would throw up, (Mind you, that may happen anyway. Hmm.)

What I would give for someone, anyone, to say "Oh this? It's Marks & Spencer or  J.C. Penney."

Between the 1000s of dollars spent on an outfit - for a single wearing - & the goodie bags given out, well, I despair & could scream.

Right. Rant over. I shall just take a cup of ginger tea to bed & seethe, but quietly. And, yes, I know life isn't fair, but good grief - where is sensitivity and compassion?

Okay, it's been snowing now for nearly 9 hours and finally may be stopping. I have had to cancel 2 appointments, persuade the moggies the weather is the same both out the back as well as the front door and,no, I can't change it, checked on an elderly neighbour. slogged to the shops, dismembered Christmas and vacuumed. Now? Now I have a cat on my knee, a cup of lemon tea, some shortbread, am under a fleece blanket and about to snuggle up with Xanthe - well, not with Xanthe, but her fiction. Bliss!!

Erm, so how was your day?


Rats. All settled down in front of the fire with one cat in my lap and snow outside. Poirot with Mr Shaw - bliss. Then it clicked and now all I can see is the US version with Tony Curtis overacting madly as Sir Charles. The bloom is gone! :(
