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!

Time to mend the bike

Good Afternoon dearest friends,

I do hope you are all tickerty-boo on this fine sunny day.

I have at last managed to convince 'er what feeds me to take her ol' bike to the repair shop. Rattling along with a collection of spiders and a snail is one thing but cycling twelve miles all in 2nd gear....well that is just barmy!

I cant have the ol' girl keeling over as it will disrupt my feeding times!

Watch your whiskers out there - Ta Ta!

Green knees

Good Afternoon dearest friends

Lovely weather for ducks and slugs! - Ive just scampered in from the rain drops.

I was watching 'er what feeds me cut the grass with clippers earlier until the rain came down. I always thought gardeners were meant to have green fingers....not green knees....

I'm off for a little snooze now but I have spied it's chicken for dinner tonight so Ill be snoozing with one eye slightly open and my whisker senses tuned in as I mustn't miss my helping!

Cheerie pip =^..^=

Le Tour Yorkshire 2014

Good Afternoon dearest followers,

Thank you for reading my little blog.

Tatty Mudflinger and I were rattling along on the little grey tractor this afternoon. We were just about to turn out of the broad bean field on to the country lane when this lot of racing Lycra clad mice came zipping by!

They shot by so fast it was like a multi-coloured bolt of lightning.

All that pedal power made Tatty and I feel quite puffed out and thirsty so we went up to the barn for a drop of apple fizz.

Ta Ta for now and watch your whiskers out there!

Electronic String Quartet

Good Afternoon dearest friends.

As you know mice really love classical music with a modern twist. At this time of year all the little mice take off across the fields with their tents and supplies of cheese to attend a Big Music Festival up at The Clumps Wood. This year they are very excited as its featuring the Missy Mouse Electronic String Quartet.

All the mice are going crazy for them!

Due to all the excitement and the Missy Mouse success...Jemmy Jim Jams has been thinking. (Gulp)
Shes got a very dusty violin but shes wondering about blowing the fluff off it and forming a band with the Kit -Kat Gang. Tatty has a Banjo that I can borrow and he plays the piano and little Gizzy is hot stuff on the drums! Atticus can play the Clarinet and is Grade 8 at the Kazoo....

We shall see but I must be going now to buy my ear defenders from Construction Supplies as I have a bit of  apprehensive tingling to my whiskers!

Cheerie-pip for now.
