The cats moved well, but Mr Billy has gone awol. He has now been missing three weeks. I have not seen any sign of him anywhere and while I have been back to the old place - it is literally around the corner - he is no where to be seen. He has his collar and name and phone number on him, and he is microchipped. He is one very high maintenance cat that is for sure even when he is here. i do miss him though as he was a real sweetie when he wanted to be. So for the moment there is just Zeus and I. Zeusy is happy and has found a new sleeping spot where he can survey all that is going on around him. So that is that.
This was a big move, and I did mostly by myself. My lovely brother and SIL came and helped move my boxes and everything, in the rain (they were real troopers) and I had movers to bring in the big things. Lauren also visited for a few days too and it was lovely to have her here too as she cooked our evening meal, something less for me to worry about. It took me almost two weeks to get things all done and how I would like it, and there are still a couple of little things to be done (tomorrow hopefully) and then I should be right. Still have to have pictures up, but want to make sure I get them in the right place and I need an extra pair of hands for that. (Gee, where's a good bloke when you need one lol!!!)
I am just getting back into stitching and crafting, so there really is not anything to show right now. I am looking forward to the end of the month when Alison arrives for a few days from Australia. I do hope by then that the section is leveled off, it is a real mess right now and there is no grass or anything. Fingers crossed.
As most of you will know, Christchurch was hit by an earthquake a little of a week ago. The city is still in a state of shock, but things are returning to 'normal' for them, whatever that might be. I feel for these people and the emotional toll it must be taking on everyone with constant aftershocks. Always wondering. And we here in Hawke's Bay have not been exempt either, there have been a couple of good jolts over the last week which certianly gives you a fright. Earthquakes are just so out of the blue, nothing can prepare you for them. It is a constant concern for me now that I live alone.
I also have a new computer, so if you are reading this and I email with you, could you please email me as my old address book has not been transferred over and I have no contacts list to reply to emails that have come in over the past few weeks. It has been a bit of a mission with the new computer, but all is up and running now.
Thank you for visiting, I will be back looking at your blog soon too.
