Today needs to be over, now.  
Ever have one of those meh days when you can't seem to muster up any enthusiasm for anything? I had one today, from the minute the alarm went off until...well, until now, with no end in sight. Knowing that half the city had the day off work for the Ekka didn't help; knowing that my half of the city had last Monday off for the same reason didn't make it any better. I just couldn't get into anything today. Approved one loan, started working on another and then could not be arsed to finish the processing. It will still be there tomorrow. And it was all I could do to restrain myself from snapping at stupid questions, which really isn't a wise thing to do. (but honestly, who in their right mind would think that having superannuation - which they can't access for another 20 years or so - improves their affordability?) I'm really over people at the moment I think.

One bright spot, when I stopped in at the kitten rescue on my way home. A dose of fluffy and a good news story can lift my mood for a bit at least. Today's was a kitten that came in yesterday with a suspected broken leg and in the early stages of tick poisoning. Turns out the leg isn't broken, although the kneecap is dislocated (as though someone had picked him up by his back leg, and possibly swung him around :-( ) and he has responded well to the anti-tick stuff and was eating and purring today. I wanted to smuggle him home in my handbag, just to remind myself that sometimes good things can come out of bad.

I gave him a cuddle and he didn't stop purring.

...He is so CUTE. I want. <3 Kittens are so cute when they haven't quite grown into their feet yet.

They are, aren't they. And to see him hobbling about - it could be heartbreaking, but he doesn't let it slow him down and doesn't appear to hurt him at all. Dear little boy.

Aww, I'm so glad the kitten is doing well, he's a real sweetie.

He is at that. It amazes me that he has any trust in human beings left.

Why yes, yes I have, one of those days that appears to be conspiring to just get on your last nerve. Ack!

I hope tomorrow will be a big improvement and thanks, it was lovely to hear about how surprisingly well the kitten is doing. ♥

Week's nearly over thank god; another two days then I can be as meh as I want. Those days aren't pretty, are they? *g*

He deserves to. He'll stay at Little Paws for a while yet; they don't rehome kits until they're at least ten weeks old and desexed, but this guy will stay until his leg is treated as well. It can't be done until he's a bit older, though.

I did, thanks. Didn't get much done but enjoyed what I did do.

Oh god! I hate those days. All you want to do is hide away and talk to no one.

Such a gorgeous little kitty. Fancy doing that to any animal. There are such cruel buggers out there.

Hope you are feeling a bit better today. *HUGS*

It saddens me to see the condition of some of the cats and kittens that come into Little Paws. Some people should be shot.
Am feeling better today too, thanks. Still a bit meh but at least I got motivated enough to care about stuff, that's a start! *g*
