Excuses!!!


 Hi! Due to excessive amounts of hard labour, peep has been away from home for many many hours too much, this week. In fact rumour has it, peep was seen encamped in a multi level car park, next to the office, to save on travelling and hotel accommodation costs. Mouses!

Now if I had known, I could have put peep up here, at the Palace, at a very reasonable rate, excluding food of course, and maid service. purrs

Anyways, after many hours slaving away I just decided to have a moments break, to review my latest work, when peep comes in and snaps this picture of little me, allegedly sleeping on the job! As though I would?

Whats that peep?

WHAT!

That sounds like blackmail to me, hmm maybe that should be TUXmail!  Anyways, you can't pin anything on me, not least because this Princess doesn't have lapels!

And if you do, I shall be forced to tell all about you and MAC!

What?

This Princess is not daft you know, you can't pull the wool duvet over my eyes, everyone knows that they don't make computers in Scotland!

Anyhow, it is confession time. Yes I must confess to a heinous crime, one perpetrated by none other than..... peep, who, trying not to disturb me, the Princess who was NOT sleeping, did wantonly pick up the keyboard, by the DELETE key no less, and deleted all my post. Mouses!

What's that peep? They've been spared a long post, you say?

Well I never, off all the...... Mouses!

Note from the Editor: At this point I can but advise that things will resume as normal next week,  it is hoped, when peep's scars are healed, and the keyboard retrieved from the moat! As Erin would say "Mouses!"

IT'S SUNDAY SELFIE TIME!

    1. Hi guys. This is what I told peep, and am still. Just as well I have a back up keyboard. I have Elastoplast on stand by for peeps, as a deterrent, just in case! purrs ERin

  2. Uh oh. We hope Peep has had some relaxing time with all that work. How dare he wrest the keyboard from your paws! Bear's last post began thus: "qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqwasdddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd." I'm still not sure EXACTLY what he was going for there ... tragedy? Comedy? Satire of my writing? We know you weren't sleeping, Erin :)

    1. Hmm, I think I have it! Eureka! Bears cracked it, this is the secret code to finding the famed and secret Tasty Chicken Ranch, next to the famed and secret Golden Cream mine of El Creamado! What it actually means I don't know, on account of it being, well, a secret.... Well I can't do everything! purrs ERin PS. Thanks for backing me up there, I do need to get a lock fitted to the office!

  6. My philosophy, like yours, is: "it is mandatory to check out each and every keyboard." So..go for it!
    I personally like to rest my head on them, use them as a pillow and take a nap. this often creates some interesting events on my human's computer, though. - Paprika, the Cat

    1. I have a new keyboard after the moat incident, and it is way too flat to be comfortable, so I bought another one and stacked them up! Peep says it was wasteful, but I can work it right, I can type twice as much, in half the time, surely? purrs ERin

  7. Well, normal is good and we're always happy when it sticks around Erin!

    1. I look normal, trouble is around the Palace, normal is chaos. I suppose I should be used to it by now but sometimes it all catches up and things just fall apart, and or end in the moat! purrs ERin

  8. Accidents happen, but humans always seem to blow it all out of proportion. All your peep needed to do was to let you have a snooze and start again from the beginning.

    1. Yup, they have a knack of doing that. I leave a mouse here and there, and the next thing there are mouse traps everywhere. Mouses! If at first you don't catch that mouse, have a nap and another will be along in a few hours! purrs ERin

  10. Oh no, we would never believe that you were sleeping on the job! You were just looking at things from a different perspective, right? ;)
    We're sorry your peep has been working so hard, we hope that things settle down soon!

    1. Now I do like that explanation, thanks, I shall add it to my list :)
      Hmm, me too as no peep about the place means I have no one to chase... maybe I should adopt an additional peep, just for part time use? purrs ERin

  12. Oh no, sorry about the post. Sometimes I like to walk across the keyboard when my peep is typing and mess up and sometimes delete what she is typing. Maybe you should give that a try as a revenge for your peep deleting your post!

    1. Don't worry, I shall endeavour to walk across peep at some point too, or possibly peeps crossword, with wet paws. That never fails to raise a cross word. purrs ERin

  14. Well we are sorry 'bout your unfurtunate keyboard incident. Sis Raena is always steppin' on some wayward key. Alas, most of our keys have no writin' on them anymore so we don't even know what she steps on. MOL We're also sorry 'bout da peep havin' to camp out. We do hope things get better soon. At least you be lookin' gawjus durin' this time of stress.

    1. Hi Dezi Hi Raena! Loved the blog this week especially the the socks. Peeps has those too but they don't really work well in proper outdoor shoes. Yes I think peeps will be OK for a few weeks, until the next meeting takes place, but I shall insist rooms are taken at the Palace rather than the parking lot! At least that way I can have my meals delivered on time. purrs and blessings to you all. ERin

  15. Erin, your highness-ness-ness - this happens to the best of us most of the time!! MOL In fact it happens a lot here as there's so many paws try to access the keyboard at once much to the P.A.'s chagrin, no wunder she 'claims' migraine meltdowns on a regular basis! Anyhoo here's too normal service being resumed at point... purrs Basil & Co xox

    1. Ooh, yours bleeps? Wow, mine just sits there silently. I do think sound effects when you type would be really fun, bird and mouse sounds would be fantastic, followed by sound of food being served... Hmm, OK maybe not, as I would never get any work done dreaming of food! purrs ERin

    1. Yes you are so right and peep just can't be trusted not to fiddle with things. In fact I'm thinking of having mine painted red, removed, and locked in a cupboard, and linked to the Palace alarm bell. just in case. purrs ERin

  19. Oh dear Erin that is an unfortunate keyboard accident. One time Angel Abby walked across the keyboard and the orientation changed and Mom was very upset because she didn't know what to do. She luckily had her iPad so she could search out what to do on Google. Easy peasy fix but it was really upsetting right at the moment for her.

    1. Just as well I don't have two peeps in this palace, I would never get a post out, and peep would have to buy lots and lots of cream to compensate me.... Hmm, now there's a thought. Mouses! ERin

  21. It's the Peep's fault, ERin. Surely it's not YOUR fault if no one saved what you had typed. Right?

    1. Hi Seville, I sure did, well just a bit then yes, I did! with peeps help, of course. Well not sure about a blog, but the Kraken is working on a novel it seems. No title yet, maybe 'Fifty Shades of Green', or 'From Ocean to Moat'. Also she is working on some environmental articles for the upcoming issues of 'Practical Moat Keeping, Quarterly'. Purrs Erin.
