An Ouchie and a Tumbly

Bloggie friends!!

I may not be a fan of the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, but he did come out with the bestest insult I've ever heard in a long time! 

He called his fellow councillors:

"Great supine protoplasmic invertebrate jellies"


Now here is a snapshot of our routine taken at 6 am this Monday morning!

Charlie busy eating, Gumtree busy watching Bird TV and me busy playing referee! 

p.s. HUGE congratulations to penandpaints of The Write Idea blog and the publication of her utterly adorable children's story Tumbly Mouse Sneaks out of the House! It was 8 pages of utter enchantment! Thank you, Cate!

Have a great week y'all!

Waiter, there's a cat in my coffee!

Bloggie friends!

Best news of the past week? London MAY be getting a Cat Cafe!! 

I mean cats + aspiring writers = inspiration and a great cup of catpuccino! Yay! 

Maybe even Charlie and The Gumster may apply for jobs there! I think they'll look super cute in waiter outfits! 

The Gumster says: I blend into the background.

Charlie says: No you don't.

But seriously - this particular Cafe has a serious message and will give shelter cats a place to stay and roam as free as possible! A win win situation! But maybe not for woofies. Ahem.

I promise to catch up with all your gorgeous wonderful lovely blogs asap but do forgive me if I slacken a little! Work is super busy! Have a great week!

Pancakes, Passion and Performance!

Bloggie friends!

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! It's the Year of the Snake!! Apparently the snake  is "associated with wisdom, beauty and intelligence but also pride and anger" (BBC News).  Sounds like me!  LOL!  

Oh you all so know I am only pulling your leg!

Now bloggie friends? How are y'all at reading bedtime stories to the kiddies!?

I remember reading Thomas the Tank Engine to my nephews when they were little. Their verdict? "Don't give up the day job, auntie Old Kitty".

Anyways! Here is a competition for you storytellers out there in honour of the upcoming World Book Day! All you have to do is upload a video of yourself bringing a children's story to life!  Easy! But hurry! Entries end at midnight today, 11 Feb.

Charlie says: I ignore the show off behind me.

And of course tomorrow is Pancake Day too! So get flipping! :-)

And  now as I prepare to wade through my expected deluge of Valentine's cards (ahem!) I shall love you and leave you  and wish you all a great week!  :-)

But before we go off into the sunset - here is a sweet  song to all little creatures looking for a forever home!

Bloggie friends!

Is it possible to cry solidly for over two hours because of a film? Yes it is!

I totally blubbed for that time while watching Les Miserables last week! And not just me, my friend and this lady next to me - we were passing each other tissues, we were that traumatised!

I hope this film bags some Oscars cos it was truly sensational - it ripped my heart out and squeezed it dry!

Charlie says: The Gumster smells!

As for my blood donation - erm... well after six tries (3 in each arm) the blood woman gave up trying to find a vein and I passed out! LOL!! Seriously. My name has now been struck off the blood list! Oh dear. Well at least I tried!

Have a great week everyone!
