Little hamster Bo now has a new home with Gillian. Kate's taking Mischa, her sister is taking Lucifer and Tinkie and her Auntie is considering taking Noodle. Zakky will be taking up residence with our neighbour, Janet. Hooray! Kitties homed!

I'll be living between my friend Lin and Auntie Liz during June. We still have some sorting and chucking of stuff to do.

I am feeling a lot happier and stronger now. I do not doubt that this is the right thing for me to do, and I have been thinking about this a lot. There's greater clarity, and right now, Kate and I are able to talk things through very amicably and I believe that something has turned for me. This is a very good thing.

Now we need to sort through all the practical stuff. And that suits me because in a way, doing that is helping me in a big way.

I promise that soon there will be a post that's about something other than all this shit. I found a drawing I did while going through my things. It was of the Dangerdykes before they were Dangerdykes. Yes! There was a pre-Dangerdykes! And they were known as The Dyke Squad. Weirdly, this was before I even met Kate and the spooky thing is that the drawing looks a lot like Wondermole. I laughed when I uncovered it. Once I get it scanned, I'll post it.

And I am finding all kinds of weird shit that should have been chucked out ages ago. Ah well. At least all my rooting around hasn't turned up any corpses belonging to small animals. Yet.


  1. I'm glad to hear that the cat situation (and hamster!) has been worked out, and that you and Kate are managing to sort through things. My apologies to both Kate and yourself if it sounded as though we were jumping on her and blaming Kate for what was going on. Re-reading my earlier comments I realized that's pretty much how they sounded. I hope that the two of you are able to remain friends after things are settled and I'll try to be a bit more careful in the future.

    And I hope you ignore what anonymous had said in an earlier post about "enough with the buddha" stuff. This is YOUR blog. Write whatever the heck you feel like writing. You shouldn't have to censor yourself to make someone else happy.

  2. One of the best things about moving on is you find all sorts of stuff that you had forgotten about and you can just remember all the good times you had.

    It can also be very cleansing to get rid of the past and know that you are moving on with a clean slate.

    I am glad you sorted out the cats too which I know will have been a great weight off of your mind.

  3. Hey Tanya. Sorry for being so absent during all of this. I haven't been able to get around many blogs lately, nor even to blog much myself. Wow, what a difference a few days can make. I was sorry to hear about you and Kate. Red told me about it and I did pop in to read that original post at the time, although I didn't feel qualified to comment.

    It must be hard having to rehome the animals, but at least it seems as though they are all going to people you know or have some connection with. That's got to be a load off your mind.

    Onwards and upwards, eh? It's sure to be a difficult/challenging time, but it's great that you're sounding a lot more upbeat right now.

    Take it easy, girlie.

  4. Good news about the kittys.
    I must say that I appreciate the little window into your private lives, I have enjoyed yours and Kates' honesty and transparency. Makes me realise how humans are more similiar than different.
