   This week at the Palace I have been trying to do a photo shoot for Sureflap Microchip Pet Doors. I recently had one installed, due to regular incursions into the palace whilst I was off investigating reports of marauding mice in a local hedge. Frankly I think it was a malicious—rather than delicious—rumour put about by ne'er do well felines intent on savouring the delights of my nip stash and home comforts. 

     Anyways, whilst Mrs H was checking the light and sound and what-not, I tried to limber up and keep occupied. . . 



I tried a new angle. . .




I looked down and right. . . 



Then up and to the left. . . 




I even inspected the state of some crumbling brickwork. . . or was it a spider?





Finally I got bored, and had a rest. . . 



     Eventually, after many false starts—and sherry breaks, Mrs H managed to grapple with her new camera, and swung—somewhat scarily—into full David Bailey photographer mode. . . and got one useable shot!

     I hope you'll enjoy the one we did end up with, me with my little (earless) cat lost look. 

     


     Would you take me in if you found me on your doorstep? Answers, and addresses and telephone numbers should be forwarded to the Palace, MOL

Come and Go.....

And now here is my selfie for the week:-







     This week at the Palace has been all go— then all come!

     First the old washer gave up (not Mrs H, I hasten to add) and so all the 'things' were done by hand in the bathtub. Thankfully, the sherry fund stretched out to a new one, which when it arrived wouldn't quite fit—but will do. Someone really ought to get their inches sorted from their centimetres, MOL

     Then the royal car went for a service and a few days later came back nice and clean and officially safe to be on the road—which is more than I can say for Mrs H, who really needs new glasses as it took three attempts to get the right car on the garage forecourt!

     Then my favourite armchair went, and almost immediately a new sofa appeared—in blue! "I asked for pink,"I protested to the delivery man who had just hauled it across three counties and up nine and three quarter flights of stairs. "Alas being a family blog I can not repeat the rustic native tongue response, but needless to say he left pretty sharpish and with a flea in his ear— and maybe one on his cardigan too for good measure. Not that I have fleas, but I do have a stash of tame fleas for just such unruly guests, MOL

     And last but not least—oh no, definitely not least, was my royal personage who got yanked from a perfectly good stretch and yawn and dumped as I call it, or briskly placed as Mrs H calls it, and whisked off for my yearly check-up which we had forgotten about. Thankfully the extra pound (or two) I had put on in the festive—cream with everything—season has started to subside only two months after restarting my Orijen Fit and Trim kibble. 

     On the down side this princess needs to see the dental consultant in three weeks to have two of her teeth removed! And there was me thinking flossing with mouse hair was the way to go! You live and learn I guess. So in a few weeks time I will be doing a review of the new east wing to my consultants practice, and rating the food and cuddle service and awarding Golden Mice awards accordingly :)


     Have you guys been having a come and go sort of a week? If so, do tell us about the adventures, what went and what came. I'm guessing the weather will figure heavily in those too ;)
