     It has been rather warm this week, well it was to start with, and so I headed over to the gardeners cottage to check up on things. Sadly the nip plants have all died and so I was left with sunbathing instead. That said the little garden is rather nice and promises to be quite good once the beds are finished and the new patio installed.


     As Mrs H was with me, I thought it would be nice to share some of the early blooms........






      The top image is of a Welsh Poppy, (though may go by other names) and is naturalising itself rather well, in fact given its own way, it would cover the place.

     The second picture is of a particular favourite of mine, and is a yellow primrose that was one of Nerissa's favourites. In fact these came from Canada direct from peep #1, and have pride of place in the gardens. As to the actual variety you will need to ask Seville that as I do not recall.



   And now here is this weeks selfie. . . .                 

   

   

     Being a multi talented cat, I thought this week I would combine my selfie with doing some Quantity Surveying. Yup I am pleased to announce that after a fairly length correspondence course I passed my QS exam with flying colours, and am now entitled to QS any and all things. 

     So, after much consideration and calculation— and after a reasonable nap, I was able to advise my clients that I had in deed been surveying stones, and yes, there was a sizeable quantity of them. 

     Sadly the stones were too hot to lay on for too long, so I decided to take my new found skills indoors to QS some sun puddles. Thing is, who do I charge for doing them?

     Have you guys been having some good weather? I do hope so and that you get to do some QS work of your own.....

Hold on to your Teeth!

Hold on to your Teeth!


Hello and welcome to The Sunday Selfies!    



     We are joining The Kitties Blue, from The Cat on My Head blog, for the weekly celebration of blogs and bloggers from across the world and across the species.

     Now here is this weeks selfie. . . .




     Many folks have asked how I got on during my operation, 11 days ago, to remove some teeth. Well I didn't want to say anything until I had had the follow up visit last Thursday, just in case I jinxed things.  So now it's all over, let me first say that my treatment was excellent, and the consultant and staff made me feel quite at home. Noisy neighbours were not an issue either, as I was given the whole wing all to myself, thus ensuring a good and peaceful nights sleep, as well as a quiet morning before the operation.

     What we had suspected was tooth decay, or more specifically tooth absorption, as indicated by my gums growing up over the base of two of my teeth, turned out on close examination to be 'gingivitis' caused by a build up of plaque. 

     For those of you unfamiliar with this particular complaint, please rest easy that it has noting to do with turning into a ginger cat—or indeed any other colour cat, and happens to be just a small infection of the gums that was, in my case at least, caused by a build up of plaque. Alas what this does mean is that the The Tooth Fairy (who moonlights as Aunty Ellen from 15 and Meowing) will not need to visiting me this time. 

     What this all does show, is that you can not be too careful about dental hygiene or in deed check ups, which get to pick up these things before they get too nasty. So, after a small scale and polish, I was sent back to my post-op recovery suite with nice shiny fangs and a mild case of wobbly legs. I had asked for fluids during surgery, so maybe there was not enough water with my Niptini? 

Anyways, after a day at home resting, I was raring to get back to my usual high-speed—full-on routine. . . .  as can be seen with this weeks selfie. OK, say maybe it will take a bit longer to achieve maximum velocity, but I did nearly have some teeth out, so best never to rush these things ;)

Have you guys had a close shave with your consultants recently? I sure did and have two nice bald bits to prove it, MOL
