Simply The Best!

Bloggie friends!

Are y’all enjoying the Olympics – both human and feline/canine (see side bar!) of course? Me and Charlie definitely are!

I have two favourite Olympian sporting people and moments so far:

First is Niger rower Hammadou Djibo Issaka who as a wild card entry came in last in his heat in the sculls competition but he tried, really tried to cross that finishing line.

Then there’s Nur Suryani Mohamad Taibi of Malaysia, eight months pregnant, who came 34th out of 56 competitors in the women’s air rifle shooting final asking her as yet unborn daughter “to be quiet, mummy’s shooting” while she competed.

I kind of feel I’m this sort of people. I do try and give things my best. I may not win accolades or fame and fortune but I’d like to say that hey, I tried, really tried my best.

Charlie says: I try to sleep on messy bed.

Pic taken last night! Charlie is doing ok – more vet’s visits to come I’m afraid but for now, he’s doing ok.

p.s. Lovely Madeleine of Scribble and Edit is having a book launch for her debut romance novel Ultimate Sacrifice on 1 August! Go Madeleine (a short extract of her book may be found here)!!!

p.p.s. Amazing Ellen Whyte of Katz and Other Tales now has her Katz Tales series of books available at Smashwords and Barnes and Noble too! Extracts of her fab series may be found here.!!

Have a great week! I’ll be offline on 1 and 2 August, but will catch up with everyone asap!

A list of changes over the weekend:

After the wettest May, June and July, the UK finally has a few days of a heatwave!

My lovely next door neighbours - who loved loved loved Charlie - have upped and moved out. We are so sorry to see them go and are very nervous as to whom we'll get living next door!

Charlie no longer has any teeth!

Charlie says: I check my carrier for any stray molars!

Pic taken after his surgery last Friday evening.

He was very disorientated and a little worse for wear! But he perked up over the weekend and I cleaned him up and now he is getting used to his mushy food. We'll be seeing the vet's today (Monday) and I hope it's going to be a good prognosis!

Thank you all so much for your purrs and healing hugs for Charlie! Let's hope this virus is put to rest for now.

Enjoy the Olympics!

Number Crunching

Bloggie friends!

I’d like to think that maybe the reason why I’m a teensy weensy little tiny itty bitty kitty committee ok with using words to create silly stories and bad poetry is because I’m completely pants at maths!

Last week, I didn’t turn 44, I turned 43! My mum was most relieved. LOL!

Oh but there’s no denying that on the 20th July, poor Charlie will have all his teeth removed. :-( And hopefully beat this calici virus.

Thanks to beautiful Kim of Fuzzy tales and amazing Ann of Zoolatry and to all of CB for the above badge and purrs.

I’ll be offline today (Monday) but hopefully will catch up with all of you asap but given Charlie’s surgery too, please forgive me if I’m a little sporadic in my commenting as well.

p.s. Lovely Helena of Becoming Layla! I can’t get into your blog – hope you are ok!

Peace and love!

Torch song

An Ode to the Torch of Olympus by Old Kitty

Last Saturday, the Olympic Torch did come
Through my home town with some aplomb!
Was I ready to cheer in the rain with the crowds?
NO I was not, as by heck I had my head stuck in the clouds!


Yes bloggie friends! By the time I raced through the streets to get a glimpse of the torch being carried through on its way to London, it was all over! LOL!

But here is a nice gallery of the torch passing through my little corner of Hertfordshire.

Charlie says: I have nice view of plant from here.

And so to make up for my lack of Olympian spirit, here is the view of the Olympic Stadium taken from the train window yesterday. It was raining Olympiad rain!

Have a fabulous week everyone!! I turn 44 on the 11 July!! Hooorah!

Better late than never...

Bloggie friends!

Now as my hayfever kicks in big time, I’m spending my waking moments less in front of the PC and more doing this:

Charlie says: At least I do not snore.

Have a great pollen free week everyone!

Happy Canada Day, Happy 4th of July, Happy July!

p.s. Charlie turns 10 years old this week too!
