Rollercoaster Ride

Well, this morning has been a roller coaster ride already. I woke early to find that one of my cats had gifted me not only a mouse this morning, but also a bird, and both were lying dead and gutted on the mat downstairs, and the other one had puked a pile of cat sick bigger than both cats put together all over my craft chair (*fumes* which is textile...). I really enjoy cleaning cat puke and corpses up first thing in the morning. Needless to say, both cats are now conspicuous by their absence! The chair I cleaned up with a solution of very hot water, tea-tree oil and lavender oil, which hopefully will rid the material of any lingering traces of particles and odour. (V. bad)

Then I opened a letter from my mortgage company telling me that the mortgage is going up £30 per month. (V. bad)

Then I received a pair of lovely earrings through the post from Devilninny which kind of made up for that. (V.v.good) She also sent a lovely card, bless her!

The BF is still away. I get hourly texts telling me how much he misses me and what the score was last night in the football (I know...I don't even like football!) and all sorts of stuff like that. I'm missing him very much, but I'm enjoying having the bed to myself!

I'm in the process of listing a few new bits of glass into my eBay shop. I love this round star shaped design oil lamp and the Celtic vase too. There's quite a bit going on, so I'm doing it in stages. I get a bored otherwise *lol* I've sold a couple of bits too, so I need to get those in the post.

I'm making some beads for ZaftigMomma at the moment and another squid waterbottle cozy, this time for Atsuko, both for the OWS 23 swap. I also need to get on with a couple of pages for the altered book page-a-long - I haven't even done May's yet! *Eeek* I sort of have an idea of what I'm going to do, and I've collected some of the images n stuff, but I just have to put it together.

ah, the glass is so pretty!
*shudders* I hate cat puke and "presents" - remind me, why do I have a cat??

Oh gah! I'm sorry you had to wake up to cat sick and a double murder scene.

Love love love the glasswork as always!
