We want to say "thank you"

.... for all the lovely cards we received this year. It is actually the first year The Staff and I have participated in exchanging Christmas cards with our blogging friends (we didn't actually do Secret Santa as we weren't sure what was expected!) and we were amazed that folk went to so much trouble to send cards to us by email and also many by snail mail! In fact "she" is a bit narked about the fact that I appear to've received more cards than she did :))) I even got some moving picture cards with music and stuff from the interwebs!

I don't think it's bad luck or anything to put our cards up here after Christmas. After all it isn't New Year yet so we are still in the season. Here is a (hopefully) complete slideshow of the cards we received and also a photo of my snail mail cards.



You can see I used a body double to pose instead of me as I was otherwise engaged at the time of shooting. Well, actually I was ready and "poseuring", but the Staff took so long getting her camera the right way round and finding the correct knob, I wandered off to ...... guess what?

Yep! And ..... . then I was away with the nip, no good to anyone and therefore sacked!!!!!
I am thinking of taking her to a tribunal or something. 
After all, it's MY blog!!

Thank you so much my friends. 
I am right chuffed :)

  2. You have lots of lovely cards.Using the Scratch Lounge is better than posing in front of them. The Beans beat me with the snail mail cards, but with my ecards I had nearly three times as many as them. Mum is going to take a photo of them for me, hopefully before next Christmas. She says as long as it is before Twelfth Night it won't be too late.

  11. Austin my friend you really raked in the cards this year didn't you! I'd say your Mom is probably most impressed that you have SOOOO many fans and buddies! I think having your mini-me stand in was a grand idea - more time for you and that fabulous new scratcher!!

  28. We have no idea what chuffed is, but we think it is probably something good! So it appears as if we didn't send you a Christmas Card. We are so embarrassed. We are going to send you one now. You can save it for next year if you want. Just use your claws to scratch out the date. We did nothing official with cards but did try to send some through e-mail. Mom plans to get it together better for next year. Happy New Year! Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
