And finally , Im delighted to report that Teenage Business is now sorted , calm and order are restored and numerous photos have been taken of the cats resting in the laundry basket , taking their morning showers etc .
I managed to get that sunflower photo on the blog , so it shouldnt be too great a leap to get some cats onto what is after all a cat site , though catcalls this week are few and far between .
More great pictures of Freddie on his site . I find myself wondering how he is .
The Times today includes an article on NLP and Paul McKenna . Happy memories from 98 when I did this course ( it was abit less expensive then ) , as I read I realise he and Richard Bandler are still teaching what sounds like exactly the same stuff they showed us almost ten years ago .

Mind you , it was one of the happiest , funniest experiences of my life and I didnt regret a minute of it .

Steve mysteriously asked me to meet him two streets from my house to deliver the car back . Transpired he had had a major falling out with my next door neighbour and as he has recently ( unknown to me ) had a mini stroke , he is trying to keep his cool and not get drawn into a further row . Until a year ago he didn't know the neighbours but now his son is going out with their daughter .......
We met as arranged , what bliss to be back behind the wheel in a high up Renault scenic albeit with a dodgy engine . I can open the door and simply step in , and , when I need to get out , just open that door and step out . No craning my neck wondering where the winch is to hoist me out of D s two seater , constant thoughts of Bone Scans and the like . Restored to my own car I feel fit and well and even young again . Miracle !
I wont go into the £371 .43 bill . Whatever I write here wont alter the fact that I have to pay it .

Oh , and the chocolate brownies went down really well .
Up at six am today to make chocolate brownies. One of my groups at the Day Job is finished today so I was inspired to take in some cakes but when ten pm arrived last night and they werent done , my energy failed .They're sorted now , resting quietly on the bench with a tribe of interested cats swarming round them .

Something of a crisis laden weekend one way or another , various labels for the posting spring to mind with Teenager Business being the most pertinent but unfair to detail on here . Difficult to decide the balance of what to include . Each day brings so many different possibilities and not all appropriate to include .

Had my first comment left on the blog , such excitement , reminds me of when I left my first comment on a blog and how I hesitated , thinking " they dont know me , they'll think its wierd me saying anything "but it seems its what its all about . We all inhabit our own worlds but its great when someone else steps inside our world even if only for a moment .

I gave my sister my blog details and am awaiting her add ons with bated breath . She s been away this weekend but I know she 'll come up with something as soon as she has a minute . What a challenge Laura ......!

Hoping to get the car back tonight . Its been off the road since the Thursday of Petula Clark and can't wait to see it again . Steve tells me its now had all its major bits ( water pump , cam belt ? and timing chain ) replaced and it will run for another 50 thousand miles now . Timing chain and cam belt were replaced just recently the recent exploding water pump has re damaged them plus some other things . Apologies to anyone who knows what these things are and for any technical inaccuracies . We shall see . He was remarkably quiet on the subject of the Bill . Usually he warns me in advance but , well I can only imagine as its been in his care now for seven days .

Seven am and time for raising the household .
