It's the end of a long week in the Pootle studio. Shelley & Lynsey have been munching their way through a pile of chocolate brownies (and not sharing them with me), Shelley has been attempting to design wrapping paper but so far has thrown away more designs than she keeps while I have been very busy working -  please refer to photo above!

In between all this we have been stocking up on glitter and cardboard packing boxes and more glitter. We have also been trying to decide which cards to have made in to posters for next years trade fairs. Personally I think 6 huge pictures of me would look best but Shelley seems to believe people would rather see posters of her cards! Very odd.

We are also excited because Shelley's sister, Gilly, is coming to visit us next week. This means that Shelley will be rushing around all weekend tidying the place up (something she never does when its just us here). I love it when the house is spic and span although I do fear sometimes that I'm going to get hoovered up.

Another day, another delivery. Just when I thought Shelley & Lynsey had tidied the studio up to my satisfaction look what arrived....50,000 cards! I'm a very svelte cat but even with my slim waistline I can barely squeeze between all this mess. On the bright side the studio is now a very good place to hide all my mices.
Unfortunately while the boxes were being delivered Shelley fell over (she's not very graceful) and banged her head and now says she is suffering from concussion. Apparently she went to Accident & Emergency to get this diagnosis but if you ask me she was probably down the pub. Meanwhile I held the fort and made sure the business kept running smoothly. Here is a picture of me contemplating what to design next.

And here are a few more boxes for you to enjoy. Guess I better get tidying!

I always know that it's a bad day in the office when I have to cover my ears with my paws. Today Shelley was working on a VAT return and it was not a pretty site (nor sound). Lot's of moaning and sighing (not one purrrr all day) - really it's more than a cat can bear! Looking on the bright side I caught 3 mice today so it wasn't all bad.

Off to see if I can bag a fourth!
