You’ve Got Mail!

I wasn’t going to write a post today – I’m still nursing this lap top gently along – but this was all too funny and cute for words and I just had to share it.

A wee packet arrived with the courier this morning and as I cut open the plastic delivery bag a scattering and tinkling windfall ran across the table …. in their careful handling of our post the deliverers had inadvertently caused the tissue paper wrap to tear and all the little extras my fabulous supplier had put into my parcel were released……


which caused this to happen:


“Hullo Mama – whatja got there then?”

I’ve got this:


This pretty package contains my ordered supplies – those gorgeous flowers and the beaded ribbon and the pile of pretties on the table are all the little extras that Louise from Retail Girl  – my supplier also found on the kiwi website Trademe –  puts in.  This is my third order from her and every time her parcel arrives it is like Christmas morning!

These are the goodies I ordered – mostly coloured half pearls and blingy ribbon sliders [the pearls fit in the sliders] for all the gift bags and other secret things I am making for Christmas presents.  🙂


I was sitting admiring all my little extras – those pretty flowers have clips attached so you can wear them in your hair………..


….when I heard a thunk, which sounded to my finely tuned ears suspiciously like a cat arriving on a table top.

“Ooops, really I don’t know what happened – I was there  …..”


“…..and now I’m here …..”


“But now I’m here, I’ll just have a wee look shall I?”


“Very interesting….”


“But what’s this?”


“I’ve got it ……..”




“Did I kill it?”


“I’ll just sit here and look out the window for a bit…..”

“……….and you can admire your pretties ………”


“……….and admire how very handsome I am too!”


Ain’t he though!

Thanks for stopping by today, I love that you did!

PS If you hit the link to retail Girl and get an error message, just hit the ‘home’ button and that will take you to Louise’s site.

    • It’s writ large on that face isn’t it! You just know he knows what is ‘allowed’ and what isn’t – he may know but whether he chooses to pay any attention is another matter all together!


      • It’s part of the cat code. They let us in just enough so that we keep plying them with food and affection, rearranging the furniture to suit their needs.

        Oh dear…I’ve already said too much…


  1. hahahaha i love love love all these pictures of your kitty – clearly you are a fellow pet nut! kitty’s expression in front of the bling is PRICELESS hahaha!


    • Isn’t it though! He gets that look whenever he does something he knows he isn’t really welcome to do – alas my rules are movable and so that is the only sign that he knows there are rules! For a really good expression have a look at the post Orlando Has A Drug Problem … that will just kill you 🙂


  2. What a GORGEOUS cat! This post is so much fun. I love all your beads and bangles and sparkles but the most beautiful thing you’ve got by far is Orlando. 🙂


  3. Oh so fun to get such pretty mail. I did link to her site, allllll fun stuff. I really fancied the scissor charms. Now, fluffy and witty Orlando is a gift I will never tire of. LOL, “did I kill it?”
    Handsome hardly describes all the furry loveliness that is Orlando. He could be the ‘Brad Pitt’ of kitty-kind. Your sweet photo collection could make a fun GIF. Have you ever tried one?…fun stuff. Thanks for making me go wow! awwww! Ha! all within 2 minutes….it always feels great to stop here. Hugs to U2 cuties.
