Sunday Slumber Selfies.....

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!


     This week I have been really busy doing the corrects resultant from the first round edits of my book – with Mrs H's help to supply tea and nip wafers on an as need basis AKA non-stop, MOL

     After a solid seven whole days and nights, I emerged from the other side a better feline. Gone were all the pesky spare and erroneous commas. Banished were my (read as Mrs H's) miss placed EM Dashes, and in came more EN Dashes and a few other things beside.

     All good stuff at the end of the day the book is going to be better for it.

     Work over, I granted Mrs H a little spare time to herself, and so she ran a little errand for me to Bionic Basil's place in Mewton Clawson. Well she had a right old time chatting and judging by the weaving of the bicycle when she returned and the straggly hair, she'd been at the sherry too. Either that or she managed to get into the fast lane on the motorway/freeway again!

     Anyways I did rather let her off when she  presented me with a gift from Basil and his PA. I got my very own fancy, purple trimmed with purple pompom, snuggle mat. If you would like to see a link to her  mat being used by members of the B Team, please click HERE. 

    The picture above is of yours truly testing out the official snuggle mat...... Mrs didn't think I noticed that Melvyn had been given it a once over as the Teams quality controller, but I did, and soon made sure MY scent was all over it. I can't have Val thinking I have been seeing someone behind his back, now can I!


     Having tested my new mat, and given it a four paws up, I decided to hit the sack. So I leave you with another black and white shot. This one Mrs H thinks is like me playing the piano . . . . What do you think?

     PS I'm open to testing all and any snuggle mats and the like. Preferably they should come with packs of Felix treats in salmon or mixed flavours.

     PPS Mrs H also wants to say that she is open to taste testing sherry, though she can't guarantee you'll get any back, as she does take it all very seriously, MOL

  13. Have no worries, Princess, I know that you have given your heart only to one pussycat - me, your Valentine.

    I imagine you're quite the virtuoso and are the envy of any a human piano player. And that sure is a pretty mat that you rest your sweet self on. Anything that comes from Basil and Co. and they're mum is special. Kisses fair lady.

  14. Erin you are most definitely the bestest snuggle tester in All England purrhaps the world. Indeed your skills are quite known. I am sure that Val knows you have no love but him. As to the book - concats on more editing and the piano playing exercise technique is extraodinary... have you considered taking up piano playing as a hobby?
