moggy my friend

i think my poor old cat may be on his last legs :(
admittedly he is 18.
i got him when i was 12, and i still remember it perfectly!
he was the runt of the litter at rspca, and i figured that no-one else would want him, so i took pity.
we used to play hide and seek, id take him for walks with a little harness and lead, ah they were the days!
when i moved out of home for uni ect he stayed with mum, which i dont think he was too stoked about.
he's never been a fan of homebrand dry cat food ;)
i finally took him back many years later, after mum told me he was on his last legs and if i didnt take him he was being put down.
that was 5 years ago!
he has always acted like a silly little kitten, up untill a couple of weeks ago.
he will only eat beef mince now, wont come inside when its hot (even with the aircon on)
and has started over the weekend to look like he's struggling a bit.
so off to the vet it is,
ill keep you posted as to the verdict.
wish me, and moggy luck!

guantanamo, renovating, and hatching dinosaurs.

well its been a long time between drinks hey?
i have been super busy despite having ALL my crafty goodness packed up! eeeek!
you see we were off on a well earned and appreciated beach holiday straight after christmas, macguyver sailed his boat like there was no tomorrow, while the mini man and i did a whole lot of sandcastle building, swimming, crab hunting, and dinosaur hatching (we bought this awesome 'egg' that you submerse in water and slowly a a little baby dinosaur 'hatches' out. days of fun!).
i took 'guantanamo' by david hicks to read while we were away, its taken me a bit longer than i had thought to get through mainly because its so very thorough, and really emotionally draining.
has anyone else read it? id love to hear your thoughts!
well we are back home and have just finished renovating our old study to become the mini mans new big boys room, and now its full steam ahead at transforming his old room into a nursery/ study, for the pending baby brother.
so while the crafting is on the back burner at the moment peeps, im far from quiet.
i donated some goods to the handmade kids and rudy and the dodo flood relief auction with great success! overall the austion raised in excess of $14,000 and my owls and purse raised $120, yay!
i hope you are all well and had a fab christmas break!
