I was getting bored of my blog's colours, never too crazy about green anyway, so I decided to change it. Plus, I spent some time last night playing with this picture for my profile, so that it coordinates with the whole new style of the blog. I love those pastel colours. Tell me what you think....

I didn't blog for almost a week, I 've been working a lot, it was
c-r-a-z-y and I was feeling very tired. But I've been visiting other people's blogs, leaving comments here and there, whenever I wasn't too tired to type, LOL!
Rachel's blog is a must for me, it always cheers me up and it's fantastic what she shares with us. All those free downloads, she and Pete are always too generous. I can't stop listening to Jigsaw, I absolutely love it! In The Mix makes me want to drop everything and start dancing and How About No War is just magic. Without Your Love speaks to my heart so much, I wish I could send it to someone, but I 'm a good girl I am. I love what Tausha's done with Rachel's MySpace, such a good job (kisses baby!)
Also, I've been obsessing with Simon's Flying, if you haven't heard that song you don't know what you're missing. Complete lift-off! And...have you been to his blog lately? Vgdrshkl blrsshekkj ksjfklsj kdsjfoias...!

I watched Celebrity Big Brother the other day. It's Lips-o-rama in there with Pete Burns, Jodie Marsh and another chick from Baywatch, whose name I don't care to remember. Their lips are one straight line from all the surgery, there is no curve at the top. I think they look disgusting. And if I were Pete Burns I would kill my plastic surgeon and never come out of the house. Hideous!

I will chat with most of you on Sunday. I will be working until 6pm, but then I'll come home flying. I'll have to, there is going to be a tube strike and all the buses will be packed, so I'll probably have to grow wings...

Speaking of growing wings, here's something I knew for a few days, but now I feel I can share it with you. My cat in Greece died on New Year's Eve. I only heard about it on Wednesday, my mother didn't want to upset me. This is very sad for me, I was missing her a lot here in London, but now when I go to Greece in the summer I will feel very empty. This picture was taken in Spetses last summer.
My mother couldn't go home for a few days, she was staying with my sister, because the house was so empty and quite.
She was nearly 16 years old, died of old age. She had a full and happy life, and that takes the pain away a little.
Please pray for my cat's little soul and for my mother who's feeling very lonely now.

Goodnight, my sweet Koukou.

I am sorry about your beautiful kitty. I hope all is going well. I missed you this week. I will try to make it on Sunday. It is a crazy day for me with all the kids home. If not we'll have to set up another one soon. I'll talk to you later.

My word verification is eggleg. so silly!

I'm sorry about your sweet kitty. 16 is a good, long, happy life, but it doesn't feel any less painful for you and your mum.
I like your new pic- it's rather impressionist. Looking forward to chatting with you tomorrow.

Take care, hon,

Hello sweet Marietta,

First I want to say that I am so sorry to hear about your cat, my prayers are with all of you. I cannot imagine life without my cat Jack, I know most don't understand (but he's my baby)! Though it sounds like your cat had a wonderful life, & very long! It will get better in time *smooch* ..Also, thank you for the compliment on the myspace site. I am really glad that you and others (especially Rachel) are enjoying it. You all are so sweet, & I am better to have found you all! Talk to you Sunday

Love Taushaxx

Hi sweetie,

I manage right now because I've been on holidays for two weeks and have been doing a lot of writing and playing at the computer at various intervals throughout the day. We'll see how it goes when I return to the real world on Monday!

Take care,

OMG, I'm so sorry to hear that Marietta! :(
I have a 12 yr old girl cat that I know I'm going to have to say goodbye to. I can't even talk about this. :..(
I'm just so sorry. xxoxooLisa

Nabonidus said...

Ooops, I had to change that - my girl is 13! It's hard for me to accept the fact that she's getting that old. She's still healthy, it's just that I know it's coming for me, too. :(

PTfan said...

Oh, I'm so sorry about your cat and how lonely your mother is feeling. I'm real sorry.

Your new picture is (to quote a love of ours) "Arty Farty!" : D

I hope to be on teh chat but I don't know now. Ugh! Some stupid stuff that has to be dealt with. Now all of a sudden I have a mtg. at 1pm (in my time that is 3 hours before the chat) I hope I get to make some of it but I do not know. We have a LOT to deal with. it's a tremendous headache, let me tell you!

I LOVE In The Mix!! It is a very dancy tune. I totally dig it!

I'm sorry about your cat :/ At least the fact that she lived a good and long life makes it a bit easier.

I rather like your new blog style. Kind of minimalist and stylish.

Elaine said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your cat. She looks like she was a real beauty and must have brought alot of joy to you and your mother.
I wish I could take part in the chat tomorrow but I'm working all day.

How sweet your kitty there. SO sorry she died! I missed you this week but thank you for commenting on my blog. I have been super crazy as well. Blogging as you know lets me escape for a few min. or however long I can stay!

Love the colors here. Looks great. See you in the chat later! Will wait for you if you are over an hour...promise ;)

I'm so sorry to hear about your poor cat Marietta.

I love your new color scheme, very very nice (I'm a web guy and I love well matched colors).

It's still processing the uploaded songs, but he'll have 4 in rotation:

Oh I am so sorry to hear about your kitty. She was beautiful.
It's so hard losing loved ones - pets are truly family.
I will have to leave my kitty when we move to Taiwan next month...we are getting a "house sitter" which is code for "cat sitter!" I understand what you are going through, believe me.
I am trying to be positive, but if anything happens to her while I'm gone I'll be truly devastated. I know I know I shouldn't be negative.
She's our baby.
I love what you did to your blog and pic. You are very creative and adventurous!
So are you going to come visit me in Taiwan? You're welcome to! C'mon over on your way to Japan!
Talk to you later!
