Oh, people. I've turned into such a mess. Reading these messages though, has been like finding a safe warm place in a storm :) Thank you so much for your condolences and kind thoughts, and the hugs and prayers too :) They make such a difference. I've been struggling for nearly two days to find the words to say that, and still they don't convey how much I appreciate them, and all of you too.

Thank you :)

i am soo sorry for your pain Anniet, we all love you very much,
Big group hug from as all ...
byron,

Annie, we love you and care for you. If we lived next door warm goodies would be waiting.

As we don't, XOXOXO

Awwww... I do like group hugs :) and love you all too, very much but it's just as well you're not next door though. You'd get completely sogged by my eyes, saying lovely things like that at me :)

xooxooooxoooooooox

I suppose I should try to get this thread back on topic really :/

I've not put much effort into that though.

I could tell you about a gravely endangered mouse if you like? It would tide us over in the meantime.

It's in my house.

I've no idea what route it took to come in, but what it's done is cause my other half to declare all our cats "completely and utterly useless". He had just watched them leap as one, up onto the dining room table to avoid it scurrying across the floor so I can't fault him on that, but I'm rather pleased they did. It's only teeny and utterly terrified. And there's plenty of room outside for it if I can persuade it to re-relocate there. The last time I saw it though, it was entering my son's bedroom. He was a bit put out when I opened his door to inform him of it, because he immediately assumed that it was in there because I'd just opened the door to let it in there. I think I've convinced him that wasn't the order of events though

Just in case anyone's interested, this year's Earth hour is this Saturday, March 30th. It starts 8.30pm your local time if you are :)

What it is

I will again this year, attempt to persuade my other half to forego an hour of whatever sporting delicacy he might be watching, so that we can sit in the dark... but when I mentioned it to him just now, he kind of developed a bit of a sort of... far-far, faraway look in his eyes.

So I'm not confident I've convinced him. Well not yet anyway, but as they've seen fit to steal an hour from mother's day on Sunday to re-enact the pretence of British summertime starting - I'm going to offer to trade him the whole day, for an hour of absolutely nothing except my voice in the dark... *beam* :)
