The rebellion has been squashed…

…and some semblance of order restored. I returned from Boston this morning to find that my home and my blog had been taken over by The Cooper Cat himself. What a naughty little boy. He had Allen and Zoe doing his bidding at all hours of the day and night. He was constantly intoxicated on cat grass and doing whatever he pleased. I would like to say that I have set him straight, but Cooper’s little “coup” did little to change his day to day existance. Now that I have come home and “restored order”, Cooper still gets his way, does what he wants, chases Zoe, drools on Allen and gets high on cat grass. The main difference is that he no longer has unrestricted access to this blog, although he is sitting over my shoulder providing “quality control”.

I must say that I am quite glad to be home. Although Boston was pleasant in and of itself, it was cold and the conference was not particularly stimulating. I did have plenty of time to read, though and was able to reread the first two Harry Potter books and made a good start on Eragon on the flight home. Now to get some good stitching in. I did bring a Mira holiday fairy kit with me, but found it hard to stitch with my hotel room’s set up.

Now off to bed before i fall asleep on the computer!
