Am now just over half way. Have reached the point in the pattern where I start down the 'home stretch'

Where have I been for the last year? Life caught up with me.

Knitting, however, is still going on. I've started a Doctor Who scarf for my brother who is 55 in June. He's a high school teacher. This little widget shows my progress which I will be updating from time to time.



With thanks to doctorwhoscarf.com for the pattern and to the guys at Stitches in Time for the inspiration and encouragement.

Got my new Samsung Galaxy SII yesterday. Still in the process of learning how to use it and transferring all the stuff off the iPhone 3GS. Hopefully I'll have got everything down pat by the time I get my new tablet - also a Samsung Galaxy, the Tab 7.7

Not to belabour the point but now that I'm here and I check my Circle I see that those of you with LJ accounts are listed there also, both DW and LJ. So do I untick the duplicates and also unfriend you on LJ?

Back in February we rescued two female Rex cats, a 5yo Cornish named Tango and a 5.5yo Devon named Jini. They were raised together and had been part of a house of 11 cats. Divorce and loss of house ensued and they were thrown on the mercy of the public. After 3 months a (relatively) local organisation called Rex Rescue advertised them on their fb page. As we were looking for Rexes in particular we adopted them and they have settled in quite well.

As I mentioned in my previous pos, our problem has just arrived at the house. She is a 10yo Cornish Rex named Sheba who we got from Rex Rescue on Tuesday. She is a little toey with other cats and I was wondering if any of you had any tips for integrating another cat into a household. Our previous boys (passed from old age two years ago) were acquired as kittens so we've never really done the 'adult cats don't like each other' thing before.

Do you, my flist, have any words of wisdom ('cause your words tend to have that quality) to help the blended household? I'd really appreciate any insights anyone might have.

Cats  
Today we brought home another rescued Rex to join our two. This one is a 10yo female Cornish Rex that currently goes by the name Sheba. A state of armed detente exists in the household while the three of them get to know each other. I'll, uh, keep you posted.......

I'm in the process of importing my journal entries to my DW account and adding as many of you as I can find to my circle. If you're on DW and cross-posting here I will probably be de-friending you here on LJ to avoid double-ups. If you're on DW and I haven't added you to my circle yet, drop me a line so we can connect.
