I took Leila to my Mum's this morning, and she settled in fine almost immediately. I swear I got to see more of my cat in half an hour at my Mum's place than I have in 5 weeks at my own. It was hard leaving her there, but I know Mum'll take good care of her; and right now, it is for the best that she stay somewhere she can gain in strength, and relax.

After dropping her off, and promising to pick her up again in a fortnight, I felt the uncontrolable urge to go to Amsterdam and get myself a pair of those green Miss Sixty DJs. Well, after admitting defeat on the snapping my cat out of her depression-front, I needed something to snap me out of mine. They're murder on the ankle, but surely I can't stay an invalid all my life, whatever opinion my doctor and physiotherapists may hold on the matter...and with the CoRo shows coming up in little over 4 months, I've got added incentive to put this injury behind me once and for all.

The business I'd come to the capital for successfully concluded within 10 minutes of my arrival, I decided to continue on my shopping spree, but apart from a few books and DVDs (Enemy At The Gates with Jude Law, and From Hell with Johnny Depp), I couldn't find anything else that sent out that 'Buy Me! Buy Me Now!'-vibe -except for an ice cream on the way to the station-, and came home, tired but satisfied.

And...I remembered to switch on the telly in time for Dr. Who (I missed the first 20 minutes last week, and have been kicking myself all week), so all things considered, today's been a very good day.

Fingers crossed for Lilah.

And for your poor ankle.

And your bank balance ;)

And please, don't mention Dr. Who.

I set the video to start at 7 pm.

I'm slightly miffed.

Well, of course you are. I'm trying despeerately to remember where people have mentioned getting their Dr. Who eps downloaded from, but my mind's a blank.

BitTorrent will have it, but I hear it's slow.

You could try finding it via newzbin, but I just looked and today's episode isn't up there yet...

lol .. wicked icon!!

I must say since last week's episode.. and by the look of this week's (I kind of had it on in the background recording) - I am really warming to the series (instead of just the characters) now - I much prefer the going back in time to earth stories than the going forward to alien world ones...always did - right back in the day ;) And now it kind of reminds me of the Sapphire and Steel feel too - which I also adored.

Yay for the shoes!! - Good girl! And yay for From Hell - there's some cool easter eggs on that dvd too - but fiddly to unlock.

And sounds like Leila is going to be pampered on her little holiday - I hope it does her the world of good.

I agree -- doesn't it just capture the Ninth totally? Big grin, an inability to sit or stand still, unbridled enthusiasm; all the qualities that make him so uniquely him.

I much prefer the going back in time to earth stories than the going forward to alien world ones...always did

I have to say, I do love the fact that this Doctor's adventures seem to be concentrated on (a relatively small geographical part of) our world and its history; it seems somehow more appropriate for a Time Lord...

And yay for From Hell - there's some cool easter eggs on that dvd too - but fiddly to unlock.

Really? Well, I'll know where to come if I have any trouble. I think I'll watch this one first this afternoon.

I suppose now you have to get an outfit to go with them?

No, I'm fine for now -- that is to say, of course, being a woman, I'll always need new outfits, but I don't particularly need one to go with these shoes specifically. Though I wouldn't say no to a green top...

Yay to the shoes!

Yay, indeed -- and to the brown/bronze high-heeled T-straps I rediscovered while storing away my new purchase. The ones I bought in London last January, and totally forgot about. They're mighty fine, too. ;-)

You're a bad, bad girl. I totally envy you the high heels!

Not at the moment, you don't! They hurt!

Gotta love a good shopping trip. I'm hoping to have one with my mom today. :)

It went well. We had a good time in the mountains. I found a few things, including a pair of black leather boots for *way* cheap. :)

Those are always the best finds! Enjoy them!

I will! Amazingly enough, I don't have a pair of black boots, so I'm happy to have found them.
