Anyway, I fell asleep on the couch in front of the TV again last night (I really should stop doing that... but it's a really comfy couch).

Long about 3:30 in the morning I was awakened by a wee tiny "mew". Seems little miss kitty decided that on the couch snuggled up with me was the right place to have her kittens. So I played kitty midwife for about an hour (to the limited extent that a cat needs a midwife, that is) and now there are 4 teensy kittens and one tired mama cat at my house.
Congrats on being a Grandpa Goat! {big smile!}. Maybe we can see a photo?

Man flu... How to explain! It's basically a cold, but whenever a man has a cold he acts like he's dying whereas women just get on with it... So we coined the term 'man flu' to describe whining men with colds! (I am a woman by the way, just put that down to make fun of my husband )

Manflu has been researched and documented to be a serious medical condition. Just ask anyone whose had it!

That front-and-center baby is the feisty one of the bunch. And mama is a really small cat, so the babies are wee tiny.

Hi'ya SoberLeigh. Woo hoo Whopper, Pedro's on the train and Tomato is cooking. I just start crying when I see all of the milestones being made, I am a sook. And I made 2 months! Yay, me. Welcome back Altoids your experience was a lot different to mine after a friend put the thumbscrews on me to go on a cruise and when I had some money. Long story short I nearly ended up in the brig. I'm really glad that you had such a good time. Clocking on for another 24 please 8:52am AEST and my love and best wishes to all of this not so motley crew. We rock.
