Posh puss cats

I love cats! I really love cats! There is hardly a time in my life when I have not had a cat in my home since I was about 4 years old (with the exception of my 3 years in Uni, and even then mum had cats I fussed when I went home and the local cats found me for a free fed and warm lap).

These are my three fav posh breeds of cats:

Choc point siemeses (prob spelt wrong). I have ALWAYS loved these cats! When I was tiny girl, pre-school age, a lady down the road looked after me while mum was at work and she had some of these. I can't really remember that far back, but they seems to have left a lasting impression.

Russian Blues have always come a close second too. I only found out about these when I was at Uni (I think it's because I had a copy of Cats and Dogs on PC which I used to allivate my lack of real pets).

And isn't this a cute photo!!!! I like the British Blues too, but they are chuncky cats and I prefer the sleeker breeds as a general rule.

In the last few days I have "discovered" a new breed - well, they're new to me anyway. Marble Bengals.... Just look at that amazing orange fur!!!

I love tigers you see, infact my first cat was a strippy tabby type and he was called Tiger (aren't they all), and that black and orange strippy fur is SOOOOOO lovely!

I have only ever had one posh cat, and he was a "hand-me-down" cat; a smokey blue persian whose official name was "Succky", but who we named "Greebo" on account of him being smelly, grumpy, and having a bad eye when we first got him!

All that said though, there will always be the biggest part of my cat loving heart set aside for the avarage domestic moggy, like those I have had and loved for many years. Along with Tiger and the regal Greebo, there have also been Calvin (the killing machine), Amber (who turned out to be a boy and very camp), Brunny (a time share cat from the other side of the village), and finally our beloved Muppet who is right now under my desk keeping my feet warm!


Muppet, you might not be a posh cat, but you are my Princess!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Bath night with these two horrors!
