The Quantity Surveyor!

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!

     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.....

     To see what our pals got up to this week: hugs, rubs and scritches and treats in pursuit of the perfect selfie, please click the links below, and Enjoy the Hop!



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

  4. Nice flowers! They're ALMOST as pretty as you, Princess Erin. Your selfie is purrfect. :)

    We had some nice sunpuddles yesterday, but today it's supposed to turn cloudy. So we'll do our QS-ing in the morning.

  5. Maybe you could get Mrs.H. to give you a hot stone massage. It is very relaxing, and if she is good at it you could set up a business with her giving the massages and you collecting the money.

  14. That QR adds to your already most impurressive resume, Princess! CONCATS. Mom may be calling on you to survey the number of snails that are still roaming (foraging) on her irises. She's thinned down their population, but they seem to multiply in great supply. Tee hee hee. Maybe Mrs. H. can adjust the stones so they are temperature appropriate allowing for you to have more spa days. Kiss kiss kiss. Your Prince, V (Noir Kitty Mews)
