Merry Christmas and a Sneezy New Year

Yay its nearly christmas .. and i’m getting a cold!
My hubby is away working and wont be home untill the 28th too so ‘bah hubug’ to that!!

I thought i’d put a collection of funny things here to cheer myself up as well as giving you a smile!

To start with here’s my favorite christmas song
I wanted to play this at the end of our wedding but my husband put his foot down and wouldn’t allow it, he said it wasn’t suitable for a June wedding, what a meanie!

The perfect t-shirt for the new years day hangover.

A cute winter poem to make you smile.
This time last year i was humming this poem to myself, it’s not quite the same this year with the mild English weather but here goes anyway!

The more it snows (Tiddely pom),
The more it goes (Tiddely pom),
The more it goes (Tiddely pom),
On snowing. And nobody knows (Tiddely pom),
How cold my toes (Tiddely pom),
How cold my toes (Tiddely pom),
Are growing.

A.A. Milne
Winnie the Pooh
The House at Pooh Corner

And some terrible christmas jokes .. christmas wouldn’t be the same without them!

Why does Santa have three gardens? So he can ho-ho-ho!

Did you hear about the dyslexic devil worshipper?
He sold his soul to Santa.

Why Doesn’t Santa Have Any Children? Because He Only Comes Once A Year And That’s Down The Chimney!

Where do you find reindeer? It depends on where you leave them!

Why is Christmas just like a day at the office?
You do all the work and the fat guy with the suit gets all the credit.

Who beats his chest and swings from Christmas cake to Christmas cake?

Have a mega fantastic super special Christmas everyone.

with love from Pixie xx

Mere cats

Hi It’s me again, Satan the cat. I had to write again and tell you about what’s been happening around here.
I was watching TV with Pixie the other evening between my after-dinner nap and my before-going-to-bed nap and saw a wonderful little programme presented by creatures called meercats.


They were called Aleksandr and Sergei and are such brilliant salesmen that Pixie phoned in for a car insurance quotation even though she doesn’t drive.
It was a very short programme, but was by far the best thing on TV that evening. However, it did set me thinking….
Now, I am all in favour of animals getting starring roles on TV and these guys have real talent – they even speak human (which, frankly, cats never bother to do – although we could, of course, if we wanted to).
No, my problem is that some idiot has decided to call them meercats.
Whoever did this really should know that:

a) They are not cats at all
b) The words ‘mere’ and ‘cats’ must never be used together.

There are lots of other names they could have chosen that would have been more suitable, such as ‘not quite as good as cats’ or ‘really brilliant, but cats are still best’.

Also, why have these talented animals had to resort to making TV adverts? They should have a show of their own. How about “Really brilliant, but cats are still best live at the Apollo” or “Almost as good as cats den”. (For a different species, I suppose we could have Gnus at Ten? – just a thought).

Anyway, all this led me to thinking that animals (really intelligent ones like cats and ‘not quite as good as cats’) can play a major role in advertising. So I am going to help Pixie with her advertising campaigns for a while. Obviously, she will do the writing because she doesn’t know that I can type (with all 4 feet!), but you know how it is that we cats can transmit ideas to our humans, so that is what I will do.

This means that a lot of the advertising for the Photography Gift Shop the Hippy Gift Shop, Pix and Mix and Spectrum Lifestyle from now on will actually be from me – so keep in touch.

Mere cats, indeed!

Bank Holday Weekend Fun

Yay it’s bank holiday weekend and i’m spending most of it decorating my house!

Bank holidays don’t really make a difference to us as i’m a self employed so work every hour i physically can, and my husband works away for weeks at a time in the middle of the North Sea! so things like bank holidays, easter and christams are a bit hit or miss depending on where he is at the time!
He’s actually home at the moment so we’re making most of our time together .. by decorating!!
well actually half the time has been standing in queues in our local DIY store, it seems like everyone has the same idea!

We did manage to get over to a local RSPB nature reserve this morning and took a few picture, i’ll have to sort them out later as i’m still wading though pictures from the last few months and my computers hard drive is running out of room fast!

I also added a few new items in my shop this morning but must spend some more time on it over the next few days as there’s so much to do …. please can someone slow time down just for a few days so i can catch up, i have another hectic week next week and wouldn’t mind some quality sofa time soon!
