Life right now...

A short summary of my life right now:
  • My house stinks of cat pee, or more accurately, peromone filled cat spray. My cat keeps spraying into the gas heater, despite my efforts to keep it covered with a plastic tablecloth. I turn it on and the house quickly fills with a vomit inducing odour. This has happened about 5 times now, and it's putrid. I have invested in a Sureflap cat door which I am getting installed soon - it reads microchips and will only let my cat inside. I'm hoping that this will reduce his stress levels as I have seen other neighbourhood cats come into the laundry through his cat flap...
  • The boy drought continues. I have not met a single prospect. I know that the reason is probably because I'm desperate and that if I stop looking and trying so hard, it will just happen... I have always had difficulty just living in the present and not stressing about the future, and this is no different. It is very depressing.
  • Work is boring. I'm over it.
  • I spent an idyllic week relaxing at an amazing hotel in Lombok recently. I really need to plan another trip so I have something to look forward to.

What's hot (aka the list of stuff I'm enjoying):
  • Shopping. As always.
  • Kids. They brighten the darkest days, I love their outlook. 
  • Adventure. I'm yearning for it.
  • Snuggling with my kitty cat on cold nights.
  • 'I Didn't Know I was Pregnant' - the most hilarious TV show. 
  • Chocolate. Food in general.
  • Warm bubble baths.
  • 5 star island paradise hotels and daily massages.
  • Instagram. 12 months on and still lovin' it.
  • Stumbling across a random garage sale on my street and buying unique and cheap items.
  • Succulents. I haven't killled mine yet, in fact, they're spreading.
What's not:
  • Smelling cat pee on everything. Getting down on hands and knees to clean up cat pee.
  • Discovering suspect looking stains all over my housemate's carpet with the help of my UV light which I bought to show up cat pee. Disturbing.
  • My housemate's inability to assist with any household chores, and inability to turn lights off or keep his bathroom window open so that he doesn't cause water damage (which has already happened).
  • My waist line, and not being able to eat unlimited chocolate.
  • Work. Going there every day. Getting through every day. Everything about it. 
  • Spending too much money on meaningless crap to make myself feel better.
  • Spending too much money on my cat in the form of expensive urine cleaner, an expensive cat flap and installation which involves having a whole glass sliding door replaced.
  • Clutter, and accumulating more meaningless crap.
  • Worrying about the future.
  • Meaninglessness. 
  • Loneliness.

Quote of the moment:

Current Wishlist - July 2014

 My current wishlist is very summery. It's not that I don't like winter, I do definitely prefer summer fashion though.

Let it be said that I also have my eye on this Caroline Morgan 'ribbon' dress....
