Hanging out with Holly

We moved house recently. I guess it’s part of the reason I’ve not posted in a while.

Holly & I love our new pad. And best of all there are no cats in the hood to bully the furchild. Huzzah!



I thought I would share these pics of Holly Fishcake Snowshoes having a nice time in the sunny garden.

Are you enjoying the sun?


Lipstick & cake…oh and a puddle

I just had to show you two of my new best things today.

I’ve always wanted to be a lipstick wearer, and guess what? Now I am.

This gorgeous colour is Flirt Alert by Benefit. Isn’t it sumptuous. I’ve tried on a few red but this so far is the best. Do you like lipstick?

I think it really MAKES an outfit.


Before I went away I made @pedromadd a delicious cake. He loves a good Lemon Drizzle and as he was kindly taking care of my beloved fur child @HollySpeaks I thought I would. He said he thought it was most delish (I think he was telling the truth) but with all such things, I thought, I can do better!

So this morning I decided to do just that and aided but the fluffy companion we made some top notch Lemon Driz buns. I hope he likes them…if not I can always make more!

I was recommended the recipe from BBC GoodFood by @Sam_Book she loves a good bake off! Thanks Sambo.


Did you know when I was away PJ started his own blog? I’m so proud :)

It’s called Pedromadd’s Blog and it’s all about his adventures after a hard day working for Her Maj.

Oooh the other thing I forgot was this cute puddle I saw at Bristol Airport. It really made me chuckle!!


What are your favourite things? I’d love to see your blog. Or leave me a comment.



The furchild has been v cute of late. She has found a new snuggly spot on the cushions in the dining room. Awww bless.

She even licked my face, which is practically unheard of. I think it was a mistake.

My #furchild

If you know me personally you will know my #furchild Holly Fishcake SnowShoes.
Holly is a sassy, argumentative, high maintenace puss but I love her unconditionally. I love touching her cute little fluffy paws and tummy, she hates that. In fact it’s the main thing we fall out over.

HFS is a Persian Chinchilla crossed with the boy next door kinda gal and she was given to me by my very good friends probably a good 5 years ago. Holly arrived on Christmas eve (you guessed?) and was the tiniest little fluff ball.
Since then she has lived between various country farm locations and is currently enjoying the high life in Bath.
Holly sleeeps on my bed every single night, provides me with a miaowing yes/no psychic cat service and in the past has warned me of intruders, pots boiling and the bath flowing over.
She goes potty for catnip and the other day actually opened her new supply when it came in the post. If you have never seen a cat with catnip you should try it, its unbelievable.
I have just realised this sounds like I am trying to pimp her out through writing a dating profile. I’m not. Tom cats beware, you don’t want to date this play girl, she has had her heart broken. Namely by a boy by the name of OC (Orange Cat). She has never been the same since.
