Well, Miss Jigglypuff is feeling like the queen of her own domain now that the little dog has gone home.
 So here's a little picture of her feeling happy again.

Books, Crafts and not so pretty things...

Books:
This week I finished The Bride Stripped Bare by Nikki Gemmell, originally published anonymously. I don't know what to say that hasn't already been said about this book. My parents read it first and said that they felt she was just going for shock value. I wasn't really shocked, but I guess my generation has seen the best and worst of humanity thanks to television and the internet. So although sex, violence and so on are nothing new - nothing is hidden anymore. I personally think it says more about her own personal self esteem problems than it does about anything else. Some of the thoughts (which she said are an amalgam of her own thoughts as well as her friends) border on the violence of sex and self destructive behaviour of a woman who is not in touch with who she is as a person. Sometimes her husband is seen as the problem especially with some of his cutting remarks, but I always say, that you get what you are willing to accept. If you don't accept bad behaviour you won't get it, whether it's from your partner, friends or kids. If people see you as a doormat, they'll wipe their feet. Having said that, I think that anything that makes people think about women and their place in society can only be a good thing. And I always like to take the woman's side - even if she makes choices I wouldn't make myself.

Well, you might wonder what this has to do with Cat Thursday?

Coffee talk - What a week!







My favourite coffee is definitely from Muzz Buzz. They make the most awesome coffee, I really like their Frappe's as well. Unfortunately, lately the budget doesn't stretch to bought coffee's very often. We have taken to making our own in a plunger which I picked up from the opportunity shop for a couple of dollars. It certainly tastes better than instant.
