The time has come to put together
a list of all the good and positive
things from the week that's just passed.
Following another trip to the vets
we agreed to take her off her
medication and see how she does.
The tablets were making her sluggish
and she was lacking the va-va-voom
that made her Rosie Mae. She hasn't
had any more fainting spells, but then
neither has she had the joie-de-vivre
that previously inspired her mad
five minutes racing round the garden.
Grant and I took her out for a run
yesterday and she was like a puppy!
She looked so happy, running in

who moved recently.
It was lovely to see them and listen
to their plans for their new house
(a really interesting building, converted

I love you girls.
Small Cat deigned to come and sit
on our bed last night, while we were reading -
the first time since we collected her
8 months ago. She was only there for
10 minutes or so, but at least she tried.
I have counted the number of days I have

Apparently I'm not being replaced.
I've decided to not take that as an indication
that I don't do any work, but more of

I'll leave the link to this post with
Virginia, and later I'll catch up with the

I hope you have a great week next week!
