6 months in ...

So today marks the date of our six months anniversary of married life [I know times flown right?!]. Now we wouldn't be normally soppy enough to mark this if it wasn't a marriage anniversary so fear not we're not loosing the plot. But your six month anniversary doesn't come around every day and weirdly enough my green card popped in the post box yesterday, so we'll probably use them both as an excuse to order sushi! December the 8th was a crazy day with snow showers, really hurting my knee walking into the coffee table just before leaving but sharing it with my best friend was amazing. I thought I'd use today as an excuse to show you some more photographs of our little family - well our kitties.


After adopting Smokey in the February of this year she's truly at home with us now and has many, many nicknames from Tiny, Smokes, Princess to Ickle Bickle. She is just truly adorable yet still very skitty. Home for Smokey is sleeping on any of the dinning room chairs to watching the birds on the windowsill. True to her Russian Blue lineage she's playful [man she'll play for hours with the laser pen if you'd let her] chases herself around the apartment in circles and apparently loves a cupcake. When she's feeling brave enough she can be super affectionate and at the hint of a treat, this timid little kitty has one mighty meow.

Ed is still Ed - still on her diet and possibly has less nicknames then Smokes [although we do call her Edmund, Edward, Edwina - you get the idea]. Although the last image of her above is in a lol catz kind of notion that is the voice we give to Ed is some what Cartman like in pitch [yes we impersonate our cats]. Ed is actually very much of the former Soviet Union notion and loves nothing more then to rant about anything being socialist propaganda [all views expressed are her own]. 

She also probably wouldn't want me sharing these images of her and Smokes curled up sleeping next to each other - that would suggest she had a soft side!

Adorable much?!
