I Do

Good evening dearest blog readers, I do hope you are all very well on this foggy ol' night. Things have been really busy!

I'm very pleased to let you all know that good ol' Tatty Mudflinger proposed to Lavinia and she said YES!

I was very  busy last week sorting out the catering to help Tatty and Lavinia with the food for the special feast. Gizzy and I had a bit of luck and caught a super big Salmon. We had a real struggle to get it home without being spotted!!

Obviously I organised lots of other delicious treats but I had a real ace card tucked in my collar, I have a very good friend who is a Royal Corgi and lives at Buckingham Palace. He has got Michelin Star status in cake making and decorations and very kindly made the most fabulous cake for this lovely occasion!

Jemmy Jim Jams kind of put her paw forward to be Tatty's Best Bunny and took her job very seriously in making sure Tatty didn't go AWOL on the big day! Due to differences of opinion, we avoided the church and visiting the rectory. Instead Jemmy went up to The Clumps woodland to Boo Boo Massous hut and the big jolly bunny was over the moon to be asked to do the mystical love ceremony in the tree cathedral. All the bright cheerful daffodils are out and the the buzzy busiers are in the hedgerows. The mystical moon worshipping bunnies played bongo drums and sang along with all the woodland birdies.  Love Love Love is in the air and Spring is upon us all - what a perfect time of year for Tatty & Lavinia to say 'I do'.

Well the big day came and Atticus took this photo after the ceremony....

 Ahhhhhhh - isn't that lovely!

Taa taa 'til next time.

Oi! Casanova

Good afternoon dearest blog readers ...its been a rainy ol day, we had snow again too but its all gawn n melted now. I hope you are all safe and warm in your nests.

Jemmy Jim Jams and I were having a early morning cuppa discussing Mafia Business, mainly about depleating stocks of Schnappsi Fuel and the horse racing. That's when Petunia phoned from the Sty to let us know Lavinia ( Mum of the four Marmalade Kittens) had been taken into hospital.....

The house fire and the worry of bringing up four very bouncy marmalade kittens as a single Mum had all been too much. Jem and I shot over to see Lavinia in hospital, she was so tired and we soon found out some BIG NEWS! Lavinia was also going to have more kittens!!! Omigawd - I saw Jems paw start to twitch which is never a good sign and we exchanged wide eyed anxious looks. Jemmy hopped down from the hospital bed assuring Lavinia that everything was going to be alright.

Now dear readers, I knew due to my telepathic survival skills that Jemmy was off to Tatty Mudflingers barn to have a word.... (gulp!)

Tatty Mudflinger was suddenly Judo flipped into the straw and found he was being sharply poked in the shonk by the small white paw of the Mafia Godmother. She said " Oi ! Casanova I want a word with you!!!!".

Tatty had always been madly in love with Lavinia and it was common gossip how much he looked like  the Marmalade kittens. In fact, Angus the kitten was his double! Tatty was always out and about with the little ones and he loves them all very much.  Tatty Mudflinger kind of shirks being a fully responsible Dad and he is often found dozing in the straw or twanging a banjo. We all love him, Lavinia loves him but he never ever manages to tell her!

Now I'm not sure what Jemmy said to him in the barn  (gulp...nobody will ever know) but soon after he had dived in the bath with SOAP!! Also just where he got the beautiful diamond ring from is a mystery to most.... but just between us dear blog readers it looked like one of the rings in the Bunny Bunker Jewel Safe.

Anyway...Tatty announced brightly that he was going alone to visit Lavinia in the hospital and he looked very smart indeed, his ear 'oles n paws were a lovely soft marmalade colour rather than muddy. He held a big bunch of roses and a little box in his paw and we all waved him off...

...well I did. Jemmy was cross pawed and in a menacing kind of stance and fixed her big brown peepers on him.

Now for the sake of Tattys health I hope he goes straight to the hospital to see Lavinia coz if the ol' rabbit finds out he has gone a wandering freely n floaty in the daffodils ..all merry whatsit will break out!!

Super Heroes

Good Evening dearest friends, sorry I have been off the whisker waves - its been all drama - its just like the TV! I've been on nursing duty again but go make yourselves a cuppa tea and settle your paws down and I'll tell you all about it.

As you know last week Jemmy Jim Jams the Mafia Rabbit was throwing a Fancy Dress Party and the Kit Kat Gang had all been busy working on their we are...

I'm meant to be Xena the Warrior Princess but my little tabby legs were too short for my costume, Atticus is Dumbledore the Wizard, Gizzy Whizzie is Wonder Woman and good ol Tatty Mudflinger is Batman.

I thought we had all done really well and were just setting off to the party when the phone rang.

It was awful news, whilst we had all dressed up as our heroes there was a REAL EMERGENCY!

Lavinia and the four marmalade kittens had a house fire. First on the scene had been the Chief of Police. He had bravely legged it into the house and rescued three marmalade kittens and his tail was smoking.

Sergeant Wilberforce had run into the burning building next and rescued little Angus who had been trying to reach his Mum.

By now the house was well alight and flames were wild. There was a nasty dark feeling and everyone watched in horror.  Suddenly through the smoke and devastating sight who should appear.....

Hmmm....well at first nobody was sure! It was Darth Vader, it seemed in the worst Fancy Dress costume ever in the history of the world. On the top was a black water bucket for Darth's helmet and the whole black tarpaulin cape was clip clopping along....

The big dark object shot off at speed into the Rectory garage and came back with a long ladder.  There was a great galloping swirl as the big black tarpaulin flew off to reveal Sherbert, the Race Horse and Jemmy Jim Jams with a bucket on her head!

Sherbert galloped up the ladder in his fruitgum flyer leg warmers and Jemmy smashed the upstairs window with her Light Sabre. Lavinia was so frightened but overjoyed to see Sherbert and the kittens Godmother wearing a bucket on her head. Lavina hopped onto Sherbet's back and I am extremely happy to tell you that everybody is safe.

I've been busy changing the bandage on The Chief of Police tail and Jemmy Jim Jams is sorting out a lovely new home for Lavinia and the marmalade kittens, as she is their Mafia Godmother!

I picked up the local Herald newspaper and look! There are some real Super Heroes on the front page.

Sleep well in your nesting materials and Ta taa
