And it’s 2009….

Wow, it’s already five days into the new year and I don’t know where the past few days have gone…

Loads of things going on, but nothing seems to happen fast enough to make any real difference, talk about frustration.
Even so, things are at least progressing forward, which is a nice thing. Hopefully something good will come out of it all in the end.
It’s less than two weeks until we go on holiday now and I’m so looking forward to spending 10 days in Boracay, although we have to spend one night in Manila as well, but at least it gives us a chance to do some cheap shopping.

Yesterday Brenda caught up with me in age, although it won’t be long until I’m older again…
We didn’t do anything special, went out for a meal and chilled out. It’s fairly cold here in Taiwan now, a warm day is 20 degrees in the day, the not so warm ones are about five degrees cooler and at night it’s dropped down to 11 degrees already at times. I guess it doesn’t help living close to the mountains as it makes it even chillier. The big downside here is that heating isn’t standard, despite the fairly cool winters, although our new AC units have built in heating, but it’s not exactly fantastic, but it’s better than the little portable radiator we had to make do with last winter.

I’m going to try to get some more restaurants added to the list, I just haven’t focused a lot on the blog recently, but I really ought to, right?

A week until the move

So, we’re finally about to move, a few things still need to be sorted out like AC, Internet and so on, but at least the moving company and most other things are set. I’ve been quite busy over the past couple of weeks, hence the lack of updates, but I’m going to try to add some more posts and some pictures of the new place as soon as we’ve moved in.

Poor little Rainbow was neutered this week, but she’s been a good girl and not licked the stitches so she just had to wear the collar for a day or so. She really hated wearing it and when we took her home she was a bit drugged as well and kept bumping into things. The only problem was that I left the collar on the front room table and it had a rolled up bandage which was used to tie it around her neck attached to it. For some reason she decided it was a good thing to eat this bandage when we were out, something that can’t have been too healthy for her.

We only realised what had happen later that night when she was sitting on the bed and I noticed a poop in her ass. Brenda got some tissue to try to wipe it off, but it turned out it wasn’t just poop as it was the bandage that was coming out, so she had to pull the whole thing out was was about 15-20cm long… Poor Rainbow, but it’s hard to control what she chews on and eats. She’s eaten a few bits of string before and seems to like to pull bits of string out of towels. From what the vet said it can be lethal for a cat to eat strings, but I don’t know how to stop her from eating them when we’re not around.

At least she seems to be just fine, although she left little bits of poo all over the place, yuck…
