cat photos

1) Well. I thought that this would be my first week back, but really, I’ve done hardly anything at all other than watch lots of The Good Wife with Mr AMR. I’ve actually had a very nice week indeed, thank you very much, and have been far more relaxed than I was over Christmas. Maybe relaxing takes a few weeks to kick in? Back to work properly from tomorrow though – I have so much to do!

2) May of the beauty sales are almost over now – Escentual (20% site-wide, here) finishes today and ends tomorrow. FeelUnique are offering an extra 5% off sales prices, just in case you were still browsing the beauty sales posts – the code you need is EXTRAFIVE and their sale is here.

3) I’d almost forgotten – I’m doing some juicing this week. I have no idea what this entails, but Mr AMR is in charge of the juicer and so he has to read the instructions and recipe booklets and tell me what to do. Philips sent me one of their Viva Collection juicers to review last year and I have been meaning to write about it, so this will give me ample opportunity to get my post done. I’ll keep you updated. (Questions: does wine count as grape juice? Also, could curry be considered to be the “juice of many spices and some onions and garlic and chilli and a bit of meat juice”?)

4) Almost done with my silliness for today, fear not. But before I leave you, can we please all acknowledge just how grumpy Mr Bear was when Dexter the Dog took his monkey toy? If looks could kill! It’s no real wonder I can’t get back into the swing of things, work-wise; I’m having far too much of a good time trying to humanise my animals.

    Hahaha! When I first saw the photo of Mr. Bear, I thought, “Wow…he looks less than thrilled about something.” Dexter better sleep with one eye open, Mr. Bear is not having any of it!

    Ruth, can we have some pictures of Dexter please? Mr Bear is cute and all, but it would be nice to see the new man in your life from time-to-time… x

    I’ve always been of the opinion that chocolate cake makes a good breakfast. After all, it has eggs and milk in it, so why not wine as grape juice. I’m very liberal food-wise. Which may explain the size of my butt.

    The fact that you’ve not posted that your house has erupted into a four legged version of WW3 is testament to Mr Bear’s tolerance and open-mindedness. It has to be hard for a cat, being the fastidious creatures they are, to suddenly have a smelly, slobbering mutt introduced into the home without so much as a by your leave. Tell you what. You can send Mr Bear to me for some respite.

    Very abstract thinking with the curry as spice juice – I like!

    You already got my with the Escentual sale, Ruth! I went for the Dior Polish in Incognito (amazing), the Clarins Eye Makeup Remover (totally lives up to the hype), and the Clarins Bath and Shower Milk (absolutely devine!). Don’t tempt me to go back for more! ;)

    Jason Vale is doing a 5lbs in 5 days juicing programme starting Monday, even if you don’t want to lose any weight juicing does wonders for the skin; not that you look as if your skin needs improving, but at this time of year our circulations get a little sluggish, I’m going to kick start my healthier living with Jason’s programme. Just thought I’d mention it as you mentioned juicing. Love your website. Good luck and a belated Happy New Year.

    i am normallyvery healthy and active and fit and i am generally in favor of replacing a meal or two with some kind of nutrient-rich shake (it’s a good way to incorporate something like udo’s oil as well as protein powder, etc), but I swear I cannot let go of my glass of wine with dinner for the life of me. I am going to create a cleanse that involves 1 to 2 glasses a day and see how that goes.

    I can’t get back into work mode either: I think it’s a combination of the weather, post Christmas lethargy and just being plain bone idle!! Mr Bear is beautiful and looks like one of my cats, Bella, (but I also call her Boo Boo because she looks like Yogi Bear’s sidekick). Mr Bear can come and live with me and my 3 cats if he gets fed up with Dexter :)

    Mr. Bear’s coat looks like he just finished a Zoom Groom session. Now he’s ready for his close-up.
