Last week Deidre and I celebrated our 3rd year together, after having met each other mid-January 2005. It’s not just amazing, but it’s a wonderful thing that we’re still together after this long. We’re both stubborn and pig-headed, so we’ve had quite a few challenging times. But we both value communication and commitment, which has really helped. And now, 3 years later, we look back with amazement, knowing that we’ve been through some of the most difficult years while getting to know each other, and here we are!
I know, don’t worry! There’s plenty more difficult years ahead. We know that. But we’ve had a good start at working together with love.
Anyway, it was a relatively low-key celebration, involving dinner at a place we’ve never been before. It turned out to be a really nice place. It was very ‘trendy’, with 120 different types of beer, good food, and lots of yuppies. It was well worth another visit again, and we’ll be taking our good friend Ken there to get some eye candy!
Speaking of Ken – he’s arriving here to live on the 16th February, all the way from New Zealand. That’s only about 3 weeks away now! Very exciting. As of about 2 weeks ago, we made sure to keep the cats out of the spare bedroom where he’ll be staying. Better to keep it nice and fresh than full of cat fur and germs! And believe me, they love the bed. They miss it now. Miss it so much, we’re gonna have to buy them their own special bed….
The cats are crazy. Awesome, but crazy. They’re both 5 months old now, and Spike (the boy) is such a talker, and full-on mischievous. He used to be the scaredy cat, but not any more. Now he’s aggressive with his sister, doesn’t stop talking, and more mischievous than you could believe!
His sister Angel is much better, which is weird, ’cause she used to be the mischievous one. Their roles are reversed now.
The way Spike talks is really funny. It’s like he grumbles and complains, what with the sounds he makes. When you tell him off, he backchats, and then grumbles as he runs away to sulk. Angel doesn’t talk at all, which is nice when you’re trying to watch tv or something, but then Spike wanders in and you have to turn the volume up!
Do you have cats? Do they talk all the time? Are they little devils disguised as cats? I’d love to hear your stories.
