Quarantine Day 3...



The pox are certainly in full swing now,Sully who hasn't been immunised is COVERED! in them,Linky who has been immunised has maybe 20?...so case in point,get your littlies,who missed out on the Scheduled Chicken Pox Vaccine, done!!!I have been meaning to get Sully done before he started School, and never got around to it..I mean he's ok,and I had chicken pox as a kid,having not being immunised, but it does seem
to be much milder if you immunise them...

On another very sad note,My beautiful Cat Jai died yesterday sometime.My neighbour across the road came to tell me late yesterday,that there was a black cat dead under a lavender bush in their back yard,I was sooo hoping it wasn't him...It was,he was nearly 17 years old,and until quite recently had been pretty healthy.I saw him last alive on Monday afternoon,and he looked hot and tired,I gave him a bit of a pat,and then he went outside...Looks like he just lay down under the shady bush,and fell asleep and passed away peacefully,can't ask for a much better way to go...He was the funniest cat,so many people from my life have great "Jai" stories...I've had lots of condolences already...I have another cat Pumpkin.that is also very old,and my heart is just broken thinking of losing them both....

RIP Jai,1993?-2009

The Pox!!




Ah we have come across our first childhood disease...The chicken Pox!!! BOTH my boys have come down with it,at the same time...I'ts going to be a loonngg week!!

So far Sully seems to be a little worse off,than Linky.But they are both surprisingly chipper....

In other exciting news...My Kindle arrived in less than 4 days from the USA,and its fantastic!!! I love it!My only gripe would be that the screen needs to be just a bit bigger, it has a keyboard on the body , to search for titles,and that takes up a bit of room..But if the next version has a touch screen,with a pop up keyboard like the iphone has,it would be perfect!!!

I also am nursing a wicked case of Sunburn at the moment,yes totally my own fault...I had the very lovely pleasure of going to the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday,organised by one of my friends Steph,(that's me and her in the pic)and seeing as I was all dressed up,and a bit inebrieated(just a bit) I didn't put any SPF on and am paying for that now!!! And I NEVER expose my skin to the sun without SPF 30,or clothing,or a hat...bit of a Vampire in general in that regards...

I have also started my christmas cards for the year,not really enjoying it,but you know soldiering on..I have two pages to share,the Kitty one is a "blind Scrap" I did on the Scrap therapy website,hosted by Ali, I will certainly have another go at the next one,it's not my usual style,but I kinda like how it turned out..The other is a page about my Parent's in Law's house,they lived in it for over 40 years,and raised my Hubby,and his 2 brothers in it,and my boys have spent many an hour hanging out in the Yard with their much loved Grandpa and Gigi.

Cheers B
