I'm back from the cattery. Again I got a good report card from them, but boy am I glad to be home. Me and mum missed you all - we have had a good internet break. I wasn't allowed down the stairs at the cattery, to log on and see what you had all been up to. Mum will tell you about her trip later on. This picture is of me doing my Full Monty - I am in the Monty Q competition. Unlike some of the boys who had entered, I have preserved my modesty by the careful positioning of one teddy bear. You may think it looks easy to do, but it is pretty tricky. Then your bean has to run real fast and get the camera, and keep you in the same position. Boy I am sure having a tough time deciding who to vote for!! There are some pretty funny ones and the competion is tough. (vote for me!). Great competion Monty Q http://doingtheq.blogspot.com/ .
So here we are at the 99th post - wow, I am pleased I have had something to say most days. I hope we have managed to make some cats and beans smile over that time. You sometimes wonder if anyone wants to hear about me. Thanks for all coming to visit me and for entering into my competition. Now mum has a big assignment due this week, and should be working on it now! So - she says I can leave this post up for a couple of days more, just to make sure you have all entered in.
100th POST COMPETITON
- You must be a cat blogger to enter (or if you can borrow one from a cat friend - you can enter too)
- Just leave me your name in my cat/chatbox or in the comments ie: My name is DARLING MILLIE - Please enter me in. (don't worry Millie - of course you are entered in).
-You can win prizes for you and your bean - I will draw the lucky name at the beginning of next week!!
So thanks for entering - I have almost 80 names now!! That is still a higher chance than winning the lottery.
My mum went to Melbourne (Australia) - just for a weekend of shopping, eating out and looking around the markets. She said it was fun and lots of people watching. It is only a four hour flight from home but she had to be up very early as check-in at the airport was at 4am!!!
Although she bought a few things, she thinks the shops are all geared up for the 15-25 year olds and have so much of the same stuff. She saw an awful lot of mutton dressed as ham (sounds yummy mum!!) ,and she thinks if you ever wanted to make a lot of money, you could start a shop for more mature ladies who aren't quite ready for angora cardigans. Melbourne is full of shoe shops too, that either have 8 inch heels or super flat sloppy shoes. Funny that you actually didn't see many people wearing either of those types. Lots of the clothes look like stuff her mum and dad had on their wallpaper in the 1970s, and although Micha Barton may look ok in maternity type tops, they are not really that flattering on anybody else. Is this a worldwide trend? Do 18 year olds dictate fashion now? Lots of Paris Hilton wannabes in Australia.
Glad I don't have that trouble mum - a collar is all I need to look fashionable.
It will be fun reading all your blogs and we will let you know as the draw is about to happen.
