An award and a shout out!

First of all, thanks to everyone who organised the Queen of Hearts Ball. It was great fun to participate in, even if the most fun was had by a certain Monsieur A. Photoshop ;)

Today, I am recovering!
Thank you to my sweetheart, Sassy Silvervine, who accompanied me and made sure my glass was always spiked full!


Second of all I would like to give a shout out to (fairly) new best friends Loupi and Zorro and their mum Claire over at the Swiss Cat Blog.  Now I don't know about your humans, but mine just loves Switzerland ever since she was sent there as a kid of eight years old for several weeks.  Ok, so she caught German measles (not Swiss measles) and nits, but that was nothing to do with the country. That was the English kid in the next bed!! Anyways, please go over to their blog and say hi, and if you go now, you will find they are holding a giveaway, so you might even win a prize :) They are a multi-lingual blog, which is very impressive!!


Third of all, we (well, I) have received another award. This time from my good friend Nellie, The Cat from Hell who has awarded the Sunshine Picnic award to ten of her bestest friends. We each of us were instructed to bring something to the picnic. I was asked to bring some pysgod a sglodion which I was happy to do. It makes my day when I can go into a shop and say "May I have some pysgod a sglodion please!"  :)

Doesn't it look jolly! Now I am not sure whether I am supposed to pass this on, but I think that many others have already been invited to a sunshine picnic. Now let's face it, sunshine is in short supply in a large part of the northern hemisphere at the moment! Some of us are snowed in and some of us are under water and many of the rest have been buffeted around in hurricane force winds. So a buffet al fresco in the sunshine is an exciting prospect. Thank you Nellie! You can come and buffet my buffet anytime :)


pysgod a sglodion - (Welsh) fish and chips which can be taken to a buffet or eaten at a buffet or bought in a buffet on a train whilst being buffeted

  27. Austin! It looks as though you danced your socks off!

    We'll have some of that pysgod a sglodion not only because it is fun to say but also because it sounds like a fishy fish dish and we love suspicious fishy things!
