Duvet Expert for Hire . . .

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.

To join in, get the Linky-Link code from their website– add it to your page– and enjoy the hop!





And now here is my selfie for the week:-





     
     With storm 'Erik' rumbling and battering the UK this week, I rather thought it was time to lay back and let the world blow by–excuse the pun.  So without further encouragement from Mrs H, I took to my bed and enjoyed a good roll on my current pink duvet, purchased from Tesco (in two tone pink) just to make sure I got my monies worth before this one hit the laundry tub.

     As some quick thinking folk may have noticed, I do love checking out duvets. So with that in mind I have come up with this great idea to legitimately earn some extra and much needed funds for the palace, AND get to nap on the job: Duvet testing; specifically duvet covers.

     So, if there are any purveyors of fine duvet and duvet covers out there, be they  HarrodsSelfridgesWalmart,  or any other fine retail outlets, that wish to be featured on the blog with yours truly, please email me ASAP to book a slot on my bed.

OR

Call my toll free number at the palace. PLEASE NOTE: A small connection fee applies as I have to pay the gardener. If you wondering what the gardener has to do with duvets– well, as Mrs H will have to answer the millions of calls that I am anticipating for this service, I have to get the dairy-maid to cover for Mrs H. The dairy-maid's job will be covered by the scullery-maid who will be covered in turn by the girl from the village that cleans my brass mousetraps. And her work will be covered by the paper delivery girl, whose round will be covered by the gardener. As he gets paid least of all them, it does seem like a good deal . . .  unless I can get Mrs H to cover him?  What do you think?

     Anyway, next week I will be sporting a nice matching pillow and duvet combo in pale pink and white, brought to you by IKEA bedding. You can find the link to my duvet set clicking HERE.

     What will you guys be testing next week? 


     To see what our pals are up to this week, please go to the Kitties Blue site, or if available, click the links below, and Enjoy the Hop!

    1. Yes, sometimes I think they just run out of names. Or maybe it makes them seem more friendly?
      Who knows LOL

  5. Princess Erin! We love your adorable selfie this week!

  6. Oh Green eyed beauty, I luv that your papa buys you comfy pink linens to rest your sweet self on. Pink is always so YOU. I should think that Harrods and Selfridges would send you free purr-duct to test, 'cause the stamp of approval from Erin the Cat Princess would make there sales go up. Maybe you could be the face of their fashion and linens department in addition to the pet luxuries department. You could have your own exclusive line of purr-oducts, too! I can see it all now!

  7. We laughed when we heard the storm that was approaching was called Erik. Sometimes our Eric would play THoE and he sounded just like a storm raging outside.
    That is a lovely selfie and pink is definitely your colour. That is a very tempting tum you have there. Do you permit snorgles?

    1. Snorgles permitted on a limited basis only, subject to mealtimes and snack quotas being reached . . . if you know what I mean ;)

    1. Oooh now being in print would be a great idea, thanks. Making the glossy magazines and on everyones coffee table has been a long held ambition of mine. Being on everyones bed is another, though not as easily achieved when you just have a bicycle as transport, MOL

    1. I am on a diet for the belly fluff, but will be back to normal in a month or so I hope. Then I will be able to test two duvets at once!

    1. Yes, all duvets considered, just so long as they meet my high standards, of a) being free, b) being a nice shade, and c) being extra comfy. Not necessarily in that order.

  17. Erin, your adorable belly would have me using my grabby hands to touch it! Manny has a large white spot of fur, that is a magnet for me. It's irresistible!
