Duvet Expert for Hire . . .

And now here is my selfie for the week:-


     With storm ‘Erik’ rumbling and battering the UK this week, I rather thought it was time to lay back and let the world blow by–excuse the pun.  So without further encouragement from Mrs H, I took to my bed and enjoyed a good roll on my current pink duvet, purchased from Tesco (in two tone pink) just to make sure I got my monies worth before this one hit the laundry tub.

As some quick thinking folk may have noticed, I do love checking out duvets. So with that in mind I have come up with this great idea to legitimately earn some extra and much needed funds for the palace, AND get to nap on the job: Duvet testing; specifically duvet covers.

So, if theres any purveyors of fine duvet and duvet covers out there, be they




or any other fine retail outlets, that wish to be featured on the blog with yours truly, please email me ASAP to book a slot on my bed.


Call my toll free number at the palace. PLEASE NOTE: A small connection fee applies as I have to pay the gardener. If you wondering what the gardener has to do with duvets– well, as Mrs H will have to answer the millions of calls that I am anticipating for this excellent service, I have to get the dairy-maid to cover for Mrs H. The dairy-maid’s job will be covered by the scullery-maid who will be covered in turn by the girl from the village that cleans my brass mousetraps. And her work will be covered by the paper delivery girl, whose round will be covered by the gardener. As he gets paid the least of all of them, it does seem like a good deal . . .  unless I can get Mrs H to cover him?  What do you think?

Anyway, next week I will be sporting a nice matching pillow and duvet combo in pale pink and white, brought to you by IKEA bedding. You can find the link to my duvet set clicking HERE.

 What will you guys be testing next week?

A Selfie & Great New Guide for the New Writer!

Hello and welcome to The Sunday Selfies!

We are joining The Kitties Blue, from The Cat on My Head blog, for the weekly celebration of blogs and bloggers from across the world, and across the species.

Welcome one and all!

Now that’s over I am pleased to announce that this week I have been toiling away mercilessly at doing some editing and writing a plot for my new book.

To help, I have also been reading a great new book on how to write, edit, get an agent etc. etc.

The book is by International acclaimed crime thriller writer, Harry Bingham, who happens to be the writer behind the worldwide writing group, Jericho Writers.

Each week Harry sends us a letter (post) about the ins and outs of a particular aspect or problem in writing. In fact, they are more than just posts, they are mini fun and informative adventures into the world of how to write. AND you don’t have to be a member to get the weekly letters either.

I think any aspiring writer, be they feline, canine or human, or indeed anyone just interested in the mechanics of writing, would and should have this as a bedside read. Each of the fifty-two chapters is a mini masterclass.

You’ll be pleased to know this is available through Amazon in paperback or e-book format.

A LINK to Amazon USA page can be found HERE.

A LINK to Amazon UK page can be found HERE.

Now if you would like to join JERICHO WRITERS and get a head start on your new career, follow this LINK.

In fact, you can see it in this week’s selfie beside Mrs H’s book of cross-words, or annoyed-words as I like to call them, which is often how she gets when she TRIES to do them, MOL.

So, without further ado, here is this week’s educated and worn out selfie!

I should add that I am not being paid to mention the book or Jericho Writers, but Mrs H and I both think they are brilliant and well worth the money.

Well, that’s it for this week. Whatever your preference, be it writer or reader, remember to stay safe out there, enjoy yourself, and take care to give yourself a good groom before and after each meal and nap.
