Due to an unexpected and prolonged hiatus in this blog, management has decided to implement the reusable blog post.

It reads as follows (please select options as appropriate) :

Everyone welcomed the [small child/cat/dinner guest] into our home. [She/he] was so [fluffy/affable/well-mannered]; a delight to have about. That is, until the incident. Its difficult to keep smiling when a [small child/cat/dinner guest] starts [talking politics/vomiting on the hall runner/putting their dinner bowl on their head].

Regular programming will resume shortly.


  1. Oh so funny!! I hope your regular programming gets to you soon. A rather long week in store for you - eek.

  2. Sounds a little too much like our house! : )

  3. I was wondering where you'd been.
    You not interested in adopting another feline friend by any chance? Mine likes to vomit on the carpet too.

  4. Fluffy dinner guests putting the bowls on their heads...

    you have the Most Fun Parties!!

  5. Used to have dinner guests who threw up on my hall runner now it's just small child putting dinner bowl on head - you need to secure spot in comedy festival

  6. ahhh ohhhhhh

    So did we get Thomas the cake 'mistake' right?

  7. One of my furry babies loves to vomit too! It's like he saves it specially for those days when the last thing you feel like doing is cleaning up cat sick. But bless him, at least he always chooses the polished floor ..... I'm grateful for small mercies, believe me ....

  8. Yes, I want to come to one of your dinner parties. They sound like great fun.

  9. Glad you're back. I've been absent from blogland a lot too, as if you couldn't guess by the large number of comments I've left for you today!


Thanks for dropping by! I love hearing what people have to say. Leave a comment if you like.
