24 Months and counting....  
My sister bought a house today - three doors up from me! Sadly she won't be moving in straight away, she's planning on staying in Sydney for another two years but I know that will go so quickly. I just wish it was now! *excite*

Yesterday was the Birman show, and while I didn't enter anyone (Ziggy still having a shaved patch on his neck) I still went along to work. I was stewarding on the shorthaired cats which was a lot of fun as there's so much variety in that section. And working with one of the US judges was enjoyable too. Very tired last night, though, after spending all day on my feet. I was falling asleep at the pc by 9.30 and eventually gave up and went to bed, knowing that my sister was flying in early this morning and I had to be up and functioning by then.

Meanwhile it would be remiss of me to let another weekend go by without a cat photo. So here is Ziggy, curled up in his basket on the floor next to my desk. He was asleep until he heard the whirring of the camera.

Ziggy 13/05/12

ETA: and my sister brought with her my six-months-early birthday present - AN AUTOGRAPHED PHOTO OF BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH AND MARTIN FREEMAN. Does my squee know bounds? No sir, it does not.

I was wondering what that noise was this morning and now you mention it, it did sound like a very loud squee! *bg* Where on earth did she find that photo?

That's great that Dee will only be a few doors away, when she finally moves. I know she has been looking for a house up here, but it is so lucky how close it is to you. Of course you didn't have anything to do with letting her know about it. :P

Aww. How comfortable is little Ziggy. I want to give him a tummy rub.

I'm not surprised you heard me. *g* She wouldn't say where she got the photo but it's a studio publicity still (the exact same one I had as wallpaper on my phone) so I'm thinking it's come from the production company.

The for sale sign went up last Saturday and I was straight on the phone, letting her know. Yay!

Fantastic news!

Also good to see little Ziggy looking so comfy and major score on the picture. *\o/*

Isn't it just the best news. Wish it was 2014 already. Well, not that I want to be two years older all of a sudden, but I seriously can't wait.

You are not alone with a cat awakening by the sound of the camera being turned on ... few choice words sometimes said if said subject moves too much ... not their fault of course. Ziggy has settled in nicely.

Well done to your sister ... Mother's Day was Sister's Day ;)

I was so glad that Ziggy was too tired to do more than open a lazy eye at the sound of the camera. Was worried in fact that he'd follow me out to the kitchen when I went to fetch it.

He was certainly nice and comfy.

I want to get a faceful of adorable kitten fur now. He's so sweet! <3

And that adorable kitten fur is so plush and soft and snuggly. I just wish he grasped the concept of weekends; all that soft fur in your face at 5.30 on a Sunday morning is not fun.
