Apart from the kitties as you know I have 4 of the buggers (and love them) and I went to school with a murder victim rather than a murderer and of course I haven’t given birth to any kids we are remarkably similar! I’ve been looking after my mum since I was about 18 & helping my mum look after my dad my whole life I only have 1 real brother & one foster brother but we adopted people into the family all the time I don’t have any everyday girl friends but I still have friends that I catch up on it just takes a lot of prep! LoL we don’t have a car at all now! I might have to nick this idea to use for a blog post! Seeya hugya *G*
