Happy belated Easter wishes to all of you. Hope you had a wonderful time with friends & family. I have previously completed an introduce myself many months ago but I haven't really been on here for some time. Life has been extremely challenging over the last few months & I'm still currently seeking new employment due to bullying in the workplace but hopefully I'll be moving onto bigger & better things in the next month or so. As a result of lack of career progression due to my current employment situation & losing most of my close friends outwith my control it really battered my confidence & I've been feeling extremely saddened by it all. Thankfully things have improved a lot but I'm still taking each day as it comes. I still have the best of friends in my lovely 2 cats Bella & Pebble, plus my fiancé, parents & a couple of best friends down south. My fiance proposed to me in September of last year & we have finally set a date for the wedding - under a year to go!!! Anyway enough of me rambling on. I'll definitely try to make more of an effort to come on here as I'd love to start talking to people again as I always remember you all being lovely, friendly people. I'm also on social networking websites too if any of you wish to add me & chat - details on my profile.
Thanks in advance to whoever reads this & have a wonderful evening!
Hi Laura its always nice to see members come back on ,shows we are not forgotten @lozzah2o and yes we are a friendly bunch, maybe not the most vibrant and active of forums but the regular members are all stayers and we come on and chat not only about our fur babies but also about personal and silly issues I'm the worst offender on here ( I think ) as I do not have many issues with Beau but I post OFF Topic a lot don't I guys, sometimes wonder if maybe I'm a bit overboard BUT... better a post than nothing at all and on that note ....
Hi scallywag! Lovely to hear from you! I'm so glad that I haven't been forgotten about hehe Sometimes that's the better type of forums, more of a community than just a lot of people coming & going as they please I'm always more than happy to talk about the fur babies, personal issues & silly issues... There's always a few of them going on Och I'm sure you're not overboard off topics... I bet everyone loves them! I don't have a problem with my gruesome twosome either so it's generally me chatting away about them in general or me rambling on about other matters... I'm even happy talking about bunnies!!! Bella & Pebble are good thanks for asking. They've been sleeping all day... I'm rather jealous of their life sometimes How's Beau?
Beau is a terror and an attention seeker, but he is what he is and we love him to bits as for the chit chat as times goes by you do form cyber friends and sometimes even more than ( cyber ) that. I have been a member now for 3 years and I so much appreciate that I can come on here and PM people ( whom you have gotten to know ) I know friends is used too lightly as a term but... there are definitely people on here who will support you thru times when needed
scallywag Beau sounds like my Pebble most of the time & Bella when she had the odd mad moment I should've actually called Pebble 'Shadow' as he follows me about wherever I go - sleep & snores behind my head on my pillow at night, watches me while I cook & do the dishes, follows me when I go to the loo & sits in the sink until I finish haha But he's my beautiful cuddly pal & I love them both to bits - I think I've got the best pets ever Awww that'd be lovely to form that sort of connection with people on here! Yeah it must be nice to know that there's a listening ear on here whenever you need it, and hopefully you can feel that you can chat to me anytime eventually It's always good to know that there's a place you can chat to people when needed away from reality a little if you get what I mean... I haven't had the best time of it with friends, even today with a chosen bridesmaid, so this is my escape from reality right now
Welcome back. Awful to hear that you have been bullied in the workplace as I know how horrible that can be as I was in the same position about 24 years ago and it was my brother-in-law who was doing the bullying! It certainly does batter your confidence. Think positive, you are better than the bully! I wish you luck in finding new employment soon.
How are your lovely cats, Bella and Pebble?. Congratulations on the engagement and good luck with the wedding planning, which I expect is keeping you busy.
tonib: Sounds like it was a good job we didn't have Roman as a kitten then. He's never misbehaved like that, only his first Xmas with us when he half-inched the stuffing! - I hope that's not famous last words!

tonib: Lexie is another matter but usually not breakables - except potentially of herself when she fell behind the large display cabinet/sideboard on being left alone for the 1st time in our dining room aged 2.5 years!!!

tonib: She jumped on top (via the table I believe) & managed to fall between it & the wall & appeared to be suspended by her head part way down (the gap narrowed!) I had to get a burly neighbour in to help move it, quickly moving weight/breakables as pos. 1st

tonib: She was fine but got checked by vet just in case! That was a heart stopping time, especially her cries!

lotsofcats: I can remember when that happened with Lexi.

lotsofcats: It won't be for long. When I had kittens I just used to sit and watch them for ages - are you doing that yet?

Gillykat: Oh yes......just drinking their adorable cuteness Been picking up and cuddling new boys too and they're starting to realise I'm a harmless idiot who gives them a treat every time I do so.
