Not really!! It’s tucked underneath him, honest!!
Well Katie’s wedding dress was just lovely, the weather behaved, I have a massive hangover and I hope y’all have a great weekend!

There’s a reason why, on some clothes, the label instructs: “Hand wash only”.
Putting said clothes in the washing machine and then setting the programme to “Delicates” does NOT constitute the same thing. Ahem.
Charlie says: I am liking the sun on my belleh.
Would you believe it but the one day this week where the weather prediction is for lots of thundery rain for London is tomorrow – the Day of The Wedding?!?! Oh dear!
But I still got my champers chilling in the fridge though! Yay!
Cheers to everyone!

I could show y’all the hot cross buns I baked and the simnel cake too but I’ve eaten them, so here’s Charlie to show you his new cat collar instead!
I’m still on holiday – but I have submitted some writing to two competitions that I just know I won’t win so to avoid me the embarrassment, I ain’t telling you which ones! LOL!
See y’all before The Wedding!

Charlie says: I roll around under the Easter sun!
The new series of the amazing Dr. Who started yesterday! Filmed in Utah, "The Impossible Astronaut" was mind bogglingly brilliant!! Me and Charlie highly recommend y'all watch it!

About a month back, I bought a pack of very sad and uncared for miniplug plants from a hardware shop.
The label only said “plants for hanging baskets”.
So here they are after a month of growing! What they will grow into, nobody knows - but what is life without a little mystery?!?!?!
Charlie says: I zap the giant indoor triffid plant with my laser eyes!
It's a four-day Easter weekend!! See y'all real soon! Have a good 'un!!!

It’s happening again!
Last year my course tutor kept referring to me as “Benita”.
This year, my lovely, elderly and very chatty neighbour keeps calling me “Belinda”.
Which begs the question: What is it about me and this near cloned B name?!?! Answers on a postcard please!
Charlie says: I dream of a world without flashy things and pawparazzi.
As for being called Belinda, I don't mind really. She's such a lovely woman and maybe I remind her of a Belinda she used to know. I'm sure there's a story in all this that I can tweak out and create!
Happy Thursday, everyone!!!!

For the first time in SIX MONTHS,
I was able to wear a SKIRT and SANDALS to work!
AND show off my pedicured feet!
The heatwave is BACK in the UK!! Yay!
Charlie says: I think deep and meaningful thoughts.
Here's hoping the sun's rays reach y'all real soon!!

Mine came at 11pm yesterday.
And here it is all ready to eat at 5 minutes past midnight!
Charlie says: I had the urge to sleep in my box with my toys.

I hope you had a great London Marathon yesterday!
It was a work day for me but I had the privilege of sharing the train commute with excitable spectators and participants!
In the meantime, Charlie did some gardening.
He says: I sweep the patio with my tail.
To all our bloggie friends in America – we hope you are safe and ok after all that mad weather!
Peace and love as always!

Here is the proof!
Charlie says: Must run to next door quick before they leave!
Thank you all for your get well wishes!! You are all beautiful colours of the rainbow! I'm so back on my feet like nothing's happened!!
Woo-hoo! Have great weekend!!!!

I got my innoculation against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR ) last week as we’ve had an outbreak of measles where I work.
My doctor warned that 1 in 6 people may get a high fever after 7 -10 days.
Guess what’s happening to me now? LOL! I have never been one to beat the odds!
So while I sleep and sweat through this fever, here’s Charlie to entertain y’all!
Oh ok, maybe not! LOL!
I’ve written off catching up with y’all yesterday – but I hope to catch up today, if not tomorrow!!!!

Not with words though – but with an egg, some flour, a little butter, a bit of sugar and lots of blueberries!
Blueberry Diggles!! LOL! (From Phil Vickery’s Favourite Foods cookbook)
I over-baked them just a tad though - but they were still moist and soft and yummy!
Yes they were!
Charlie says: I’m in the cat house.
The heatwave is over!! Here comes April Showers!

I’m so sorry I was too late
To save you from your fate
As he grabbed you with his claws
And put you in his jaws!
Charlie says: I stare out of the window innocently

Yay!! Finally!! 100Stories for Queensland will be out as an ebook on the 3rd May 2011! More details here as and when things happen!
If you look very closely, my name is 7th line down, 3 names in with my surname just covered up!! Yay!! LOL!
Charlie says: I too busy sunning myself to look.
Tis official!!! The UK is having a "heatwave" i.e. temperatures up to 20 degrees centigrade. Sizzling!!
Have a great weekend!!

Thar be a heatwave ‘pon the southeast of ye olde England!!! Oooh-aaar!
Yep! Worst pirate accent EVER!
True anecdote: There I was thinking I captured the London slang of my youth in one of my very early stories only for my tutor to comment “what region of North England is this person from?” LOL!
Charlie says: I bask in the glow of the sun too.
Spring has sprung, bloggie friends!! Hallelujah!

This is an honest to goodness competition question – the prize is £700 worth of shoes.
When was Valentine’s Day this year?
I kind of like the way the question adds ".. this year"! LOL!
I won’t say which mag this competition is being run cos I seriously *wink* want to increase my chances of winning this. Ahem.
Charlie says: I don't need more shoes just more snacks
Half-way to the weekend!!!
p.s. It's in Woman's Weekly!

And Thorntons are donating some of the proceeds of the sale of this chocolate to Save the Children. Yay!
Charlie says: This does not smell like tasty snack.
Happy spring everyone!

Not only do I have a fetish for shoes but I also have one for calendars!! The more unusual the better!
Here is a snap of one of my more exotic calendars from Israel:
The theme of April is “Typewriter” and I quote “In 1794 Henry Mill in England filed the first patent for the typewriter. Its development went through many labor pains, and industrial production started in 1874 in the US”.
Who knew such revolutionary equipment could have “labor pains”?!?!
Charlie says: Me and mousie guard the shopping.
We hope y'all well and happy!
