Just letting you know I'm back. Had a good time in Cairns - will show pics, etc, soon. The talk was fine - I have to get all the negative stuff out beforehand and then I rev up a bit and yap away happily. I got home to find:
a) cheshire has a sore leg after getting out two nights ago and getting in a massive fight (did DH do anything about it? No, they have to sort it out themselves).
b)DH is having another thesis tizz (one reason why he didn't go stop the cat fight and get Cheshire in)
Now I have to go to the vets at the end of the road behind the greyhound track and see if they deal with cats as well as greyhounds.... sigh.
