Yesterday was actually a lucky day for me:
My creative block seems to have ended, we’ve finished some designs for Ampersand and I’m pretty proud. Heaps more work to be done though.
I won the peach dress from Jennifer’s Giveaway, WOOHOO!!
I finally found cute summer shorts (totally had a hallelujah moment in the dressing room). I might wear them tomorrow but my legs are covered in scratches, You’d think I went to war not had encounters with a fat Ryder who can’t pull himself on to my lap in one swift motion and thus claws on for dear life until I pull him up. Sheesh.
BUT The most exciting and happiest news of all:
This gorgeous angel might join our family soon. We visited her yesterday and she’s a lot smaller and skinnier in person but just as beautiful. She was rescued from the streets where she had had a life threatening car accident, apparently the doctors didn’t think she would make it. I think her foster mom’s exact words were ‘they had removed her heart and put it on the table, her ribs were crushed. It’s a miracle she survived’.
After her amazing recovery, she spent the next 5 months holed up in a tiny cage in a clinic so she’s really been through so much. Despite all of this, she is this gentle, loving bundle of joy who is new to things like elevators, stairs, people and it seems she’s fascinated with the TV lol. She makes all my problems feel trivial and I feel like she’s proof that miracles exist, y’know? If this baby can survive so much and still be happy, I can too. Nothing should break our spirit.
I fell in love with her in an instant and had to hold my tears back when they told me her story. She seemed to like us, she even followed us out the door 😀
The only thing left is for the kittens to like her and vice versa., they’re meeting tomorrow so fingers crossed that nobody dies ( I’m soooooooooooo nervous). Ryder is a fraidy cat but Lenny is quite brave- I hope he doesn’t attack her. And she’s a street dog, she probably chases cats for fun :S Oh hell…. We’ll only find out tomorrow.
I’m still wearing my glasses and thanks to you guys I feel a pretty wearing them. Plus, a whole lot more comfortable wearing them in public ( I’ve never done this before, I’ve always been too shy). The sexy librarian jokes were hilarious btw, thank you so much for commenting 🙂
And finally, Is it just me, or is this song perfection?
Just Looking by Stereophonics
there’s things i want
there’s things i think i want
there’s things i’ve had
there’s things i wanna have
do i want the dreams
the ones we’re forced to see
do i want the perfect wife
the word perfect ain’t quite right
shopping every day
take it back the next break
they say the more you fly the more you risk your life
i’m just looking i’m not buying
i’m just looking keeps me smiling
a house i seen another coulda’ been
you drenched my head and said what i said
you said that life is what you make of it
yet most of us just fake
Ok, I promise I’m done. Longest post ever- you’d think I hadn’t posted for 2 weeks not days! Love y’all ♥
