@evince - thats nice news evince! My old landlord flatly refused, I offered to layby a sizeable deposit, and be liable for any damage, but they said no. I guess it worked out in the end though, since when I bought my house, I ended up with Abigail and couldnt be happier about it.

Still no snow here - its falling in the north of the country, but here its just cold. Maybe later in the day!

(Ooh I didn't know you could tag people now here)

@Adelea I am up north, Scotland. We had snow last night but now it's just a bit frosty.

Where'd you find/adopt Abigail btw?

I didnt know that either - thats quite a nice feature!

I knew I wanted a Norwegian Forest Cat, so I started looking at breeders on the NFCC site. I must have visited 8 or so, before Abigail decided on me.

11983 @evince That's so exciting to be able to get a cat. Have you any idea what type of cat you'll get? Will you go for a specific breed or just a wonderful every day Moggie? Oh so exciting.

11984. Hi evince! Just another thing to love about your new place! I didn't realize you were in Scotland; I thought you were in England. You must be so excited!

So in my second attempt at bread, I totally forgot to add the seeds and nuts until after the second rise. I figured what the heck. The dough was really soft, so I kneaded them in. One loaf looks good; the other is a little flat though. Well, even if they don't taste very good, at least it smells great in my kitchen now.

I am so excited indeed! Going to the cat protection league tomorrow and I can't wait. I am not set on any breed, though I'd like the cat to be indoors. I would be very happy to adopt a senior or cat with special needs, I know those babies are less likely to find homes.

Ooh spirite do you have a bread machine or just do it with your oven?

Well Sprite has inspired me, so I am going to try making some cinnamon rolls tomorrow!

I dont think i've tried making a yeast based product in the last 20 years, so am curious how it will go.

Oh, we had a light dusting of snow last night - about 3 snowflakes thick. Abigail ran about outside a bit, then jumped up on me and put her cold paws on my neck. Lovely.
