Back to the Drawing Board

Good Morning Everyone.

Brrrrr - What a freezy-pop day!

I do hope you are all keeping warm and having enough to eat. Gizzy and I have been hanging up food for the feathered community to snaff. Its fearful tricky for the tweeters n chirpers when its icy as all that pecking about for nibbles bends their beaks.

As you know Jemmy Jim Jams has landed us all in it by agreeing to design and build a Super Yacht for this billionaire bunny that she met in Spain.

Gizzy looked rough as ol' kitty litter from lack of sleep worrying about how to build the yacht engine. We thought we should visit dear ol' Atticus as he was told to start on designs immediately...

I thought Atticus would be worrying about the Yacht but when we arrived we found him care-free under his 'sun lamp' having a cup of tea. He had his fluffy moccasins on and had been drawing a Celtic knot for fun.

Atticus said he had the most awful dream that Jemmy had asked him to draw a Super Yacht.  He giggled at such a daft notion, what a silly idea...


We told him kindly and gently as possible that it was not a dream - It was in fact a nightmare. We had to get some smelling salts to bring Atticus round ... ( dont worry, hes alright!...anxious but OK)

Meanwhile ..Tatty and Angus had been told by Jemmy to go out and do a big customer survey and record what everyone would expect to find on a billionaires Super Yacht. Tatty wisely thought he would start the survey up at The Clumps Woodland due to the large population of Moon Worshiping Bunnies. Lots of feedback there and they could also visit Boo Boo Massou's Hut to thaw out.

Jemmy and Katya Hoppenorf are going to Southampton Docks to check out the posh boats and do some reconnaissance. I am secretly hoping the ol' rabbit will realise shes bitten off more than she can chew!

As for me, I'm meeting Lavinia and the kittens who are flying back from Spain with all those crates of oranges. We've got to make the Marmalade.

Don't forget to feed the birds and I'll be back soon.

Mudflinger's Marmalade

Good Morning dearest followers,

I do hope you are all well and have warm paws.

I received a lovely sunny letter and photograph this morning from Lavinia Mudflinger and the marmalade kittens. They are all out in Spain. I thought you would like to see the picture as it reminds ourselves of sunnier days to come.

Tatty and Angus are looking after the farm here whilst the rest of the Mudflinger family are on a kind of Orange Picking 'holiday' to help Jemmy. They are being paid by the crate so all the kittens have been climbing the trees enthusiastically. Jemmy pointed out the extra vitamin C and exercise is doing wonders for their fur and growth.

Jemmy did some sort of deal with the orange grove owner who wears a white suit and hat and quite by chance discovered he was a billionaire. Jemmy was all ears n whiskers...

The bunny billionaire lamented that being rich had its perks but little privacy. He looked out to sea and said...

"Oh Jemmy, if only someone could build me a luxury Super yacht...(Sigh)......"

Pound signs whizzed around Jemmy's eyeballs and quick as a flash she agreed and took a down payment for designing and building a Super Yacht!

I did try to say to Jemmy at the meeting that it was a whole different kettle of kippers to shifting Marmalade but the ol'rabbit is on a mission now and we have all got to help...

Watch your whiskers out there..

The BORED Meeting

Good Afternoon dearest friends,

I am so glad you have popped in to read my little blog and a belated Happy New Year to you all!

Its been a while since I was last on the whisker waves. I feel such a fuzzy ol' fool as I managed to forget my password.  Fortunately little Angus Mudflinger the Marmalade Kitten who understands the technological gubbins has put me in tune with you all again.

To be fair, after the Calvados and Cherry Schnappsie testing last year nobody can recall the goings on  between then and now so I do not think you missed much...

In fact - so little has occurred Jemmy Jim Jams became restless and has twitchy invited us all to attend a 'BORED' Meeting....

I provided the tea and Jammy Dodger biscuits and all was tickerty boo...

Its at times like this dear friends when all is quiet and ordinary that you need to watch your whiskers! Jemmy Jim Jams revealed her new idea to me for 2015..(gulp).. you can tell by little tabby face its alarming and on a grand scale.

Keep safe and warm and return soon and I will reveal the hair brained...errr ..enterprising plan.

Connie the Constrictor

Hello Everybody!

I do hope you are all very well this sunny day.

You must forgive me for my fluffed up state but something really alarming happened - make yourself a cuppa tea and I'll tell you all about it.

We were all at Tatty Mudflingers barn giving our Cherry Schnappsie jars a good shake. As you can see I don't have as many cherries as everyone else as...not all mine made it into the jar during preparation.

There we all were chatting happily and care free...

YES - YOU KNOW WHAT I AM ABOUT TO SAY  - its at times like this dear friends that you really need to watch your whiskers!

Suddenly Lavinia Mudflinger came hurtling into the barn whirling her handbag in floods of tears.

"HELP HELP HELP !!! Angus the marmalade kitten is being squeeeeeeeezed by a giant snake!!"

Lavinia had clopped the snake round the kisser with her handbag but the deranged killer constrictor let out a terrifying maniacal laugh and refused to let go off little Angus!

 It turns out that the snake was Crazy Connie who had been let out of Snakesville Open Prison for the day on a jolly. Some daft  do-gooder had stuck their big beak in and thought it would be therapeutic for Connie to slither orf on a little shopping trip for soft loo rolls and a frilly lampshade to cheer herself  up.

We all ran to save Angus from her evil coils ....but terrifyingly we were all very soon in her tight grip!

All of the Kit Kat Gang in mortal danger!

 ...Only Lavinia was free to run and get help and she shot off whirling her handbag to the ONLY place you could possibly go when faced with such peril....

Luck was on our side! Lavinia ran straight to the Rabbit Bunker to fetch Jemmy Jim Jams the Old English Godmother of all Bunnies!

There was a flash of black and white and a little fluffy tail as Jemmy grabbed her present from the Piglet Possy which she hadn't had opportunity to use yet. The little piglets had been down Blackbush Market and got a buy one get one free offer on Knuckle Tazers! Jemmy was overcome with emotion on receiving such a thoughtful gift and had them plugged in to charge up over night.

 We all thought we were about to depart this blog when there was a mighty flash of light -crackle n bang !!

Fizzzzzzz Thwack!!!Ka- Pow!!!!!The new Knuckle Tazers blew Jemmy off her paws and she looked impressive as Bruce Lee as the volts hit Connie the Constrictor. She didnt know what hit her!!

We all escaped ( with static fizzing fur! ) and as for Connie....she was dragged off frazzled n smoking from the nostrils  back to Snakesville.

A happy ending! Though I think Jemmy is going to see if the piglets had kept a receipt for the Knuckle Tazers as they rather disappointingly melted.

Watch your whiskers out there and Ta Ta!

Knitting Disasters

Good Morning dearest friends

I do hope you are all tickerty-boo and enjoying the summer time.

There has been a bit of a crazy knitting epidemic that has broken out all over the area which started up at The Clumps. Boo Boo Massou the Leader of the Bongo Drumming Bunnies started up a knitting circle and all the little bunnies went wild wanting wool, patterns and knitting needles.

My boss Jemmy Jim Jams had her ear to the ground and is always quick to spot a trend. She saw this as an excellent business opportunity so was about to buy in a stash of wool and whatnot to flog up the market.

However....after seeing what happened when we all had a go....

she changed her mind!

I quietly think the ol' bunny boss may have made a mistake here and is missing out on a nice little earner.
 Boo Boo Massou is in talks with the local flock of sheep and  the whisper is shes opening a wool shop.

Best of luck I say!

Tatty Schnappsie Time

Good Afternoon dearest friends.

Thank you for reading my little blog.

I can feel it in my whiskers that storms are coming for the weekend. (I heard it on the radio really!)

As you know dear ol' Tatty made a rather lethal batch of Tatty Schnappsie quite a few blue moons back and it could only be safely used for rocket fuel.  The good news is over the years Tatty has been experimenting up at Mudflingers Barn with help from Atticus and they can now make 'safe' Schnappsie....I say 'safe' as there was that incident when Sherbert the race horse who tried a drop and went temporarily radio-active...but that's all water under the bridge!

I just scampered off to meet Tatty as we are going off cherry picking....

Wish us luck up the cherry trees, we hope to make a batch of Cherry Schnappsie before the storms come!

Cherry- pip for now... -Watch your whiskers out there and don't forget your wellingtons and umbrella!

Ta Ta!
