Return of the cat lady

Welcome to my world

Hello, thank you for dropping by, I hope you enjoy your stay.
This is my adventure journal, charting my path to one of those big, milestone birthdays... Yes, in October 2018 I'm 50, so I thought it would be fun to open the book on what life throws at me.
So if you want cats, gardening, cats, cooking, cats, clothes, cats, family, cats, self care and cats, then this is the place for you.
