Come and Go.....

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:-







     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 ;)

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


                                                     And Finally, but not least................

  5. Wow, Erin. You and Mrs. H sure have had a lot to deal with. We're most sorry that you have to have some teeth removed. That's never fun, but we purr that it will go smoothly and without incident.

    1. I won't tell your staff if you wont tell mine;)
      Taxes are one thing we don't have to deal with now the staff are retired. Just keeping tabs on the pension spending is our main issue.
      Purrs and hopefully you guys won't need any dental work when you go to the appointment we are not talking about ;)

  7. Princess, I think you need a vacation to O-R-E Gon after all that! I hear things happen in threes, so that means nothing else should need fixin' or replaced for the rest of the year at your palace. Mom and Dad thought they would have to replace the wash machine last year when it started squealing like a mousie. But with my supervision, Dad did some needed maintenance and low and behold the machine is still working. If it starts squealing again, I think that will be the time to switch to purrchase a new model. Tee hee hee.

    You stand so proud and bea-u-ti-ful there for your selfie. Kiss Kiss Kiss to you, my damask rose. -Your Prince, V (& Kerry) of Noir Kitty Mews

    1. A holiday sounds lovely—even better if it was with you, my sweet ;) Maybe we could check out that squeak, just in case there was a stray mousie caught in that there machine?
      Purrs and pawkisses and clean smooches from me and our new washer.

    1. Yes, sure is. But naps solve a lot of problems, especially if you can sleep through the problems; which I do as often as possible ;)
