Short Sunday Selfie & Party Time!


It's Sunday Selfie time.... 



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.


Download the linky link from their site, and join the fun!






This is my selfie for the week:-

CALL THOSE HOSPITAL CORNERS!?

This week I have mainly been inspecting the bedrooms, and the high level walkways I had thoughtfully installed along the bed heads, so that human guests could be checked on overnight.

Here I can be seen casting a shocked eye over the state of the maids handiwork...... Call those Hospital Corners, I said, a kitten could do better!

I can see I shall have to take this maid in paw!

Do you have problems with your staff? Mail your issues to me, here at the Palace, and I shall enter them into my new book, called :- Hospital Corners, the feline guide to making beds and biscuits.

To see what all our pals have been up to, click the links below.




............... and now it's Sunday Story Blogoversary Time!


Well it has been three years and this blog has gone from strength to strength and all thanks to you, the readers, you who take the time out of each week to spend a couple of minutes to read my journal.

February also happens to be the Blogoversary of our great pals, the delightful Dezi and Reana Belle, of Deziz World, and also my beloved and floofi prince and adventure companion, Valentine, of Noir Kitty Mews.

© NoirKittyMews.com Dezizworld.comTo celebrate, we have all chipped in and throwing a Party. Valentine has arranged the music, and Dezi and Raena Belle are hosting the games. It was just left for yours truly to hire the caterers. I was however under strict instructions NOT to just furnish mice and cream and pizza! MOL

Fear not if you have left your invites at home, there is one here for you to use. Being family blogs, everyone is welcome, kittens too. 

So welcome one, and all please nip by to Valentine and Dezi and Raena Belle's place and say hello.

So it just remains for me to say a BIG Thank You to everyone that comes by to share the (long) adventures on our blogs, and leave such wonderful comments....

Enjoy the PARTY!!!

Please grab a plate (and cutlery for the polydactyls amongst us) and help yourself!

There is a lovely selection of seafood, starters and main courses.....

And for the red meat obligate carnivore, why not have a slice or two of our cooked and sliced meats, hams, and roast beef.....

If you not too worried about your carbs, I can totally recommend the sushi, and the international cheese selection is fantastic!

Want something light and refreshing? Well, we have loads of healthy fruit, and lashings of low fat (not) and low calorie (ish) cream.

If you're left your pet stroller at home, or given the staff the night off, why not try a nip wine or two from the Palace cellars. All are vintage (bought last week), and come in not one, but TWO colours! I did try to get a Tuxedo wine but apparently they haven't mastered that one.... yet!


Copyright: <a href='https://www.123rf.com/profile_evgenyb'>evgenyb / 123RF Stock Photo</a>

Of course, for the youngsters, and those that have to do the driving, we have a range of soft drinks (I guess that means not in glass bottles) and fruit juices. The latter will be great for athletes amongst us too, though I would go easy on the prune and Brussels juice! MOL

To round the evening off, after all the fun and games and dancing, please
feel free to pop back and have a cup of herbal coffee, or tea, which will be served with some special cream and nip topped cookies!

We hope that there will be something in the buffet for everyone. The caterers have asked us to advise that all food has been prepared to the highest of standards, using only the best of ingredients that have been responsibly sourced via Mrs Hudsons credit card.

However, whilst every effort is made to ensure your food is organic and thus will be free from additives, they accept no responsibility for any floof, whiskers, or claws, you might find in your tea!

      Hmm well Mrs H really didn't do too much, bar the setting up., though she had her hands full keeping some of the unruly or nipped up cats from falling into the moat and upsetting the Kraken. Great party and still plenty of fresh food should you wish. There is even some diet food for those in need, like me.
