Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furiends

This will be our last Colouring with Cats post till the autumn/fall as there's so much to be done outside, deck chairs to paint and we're making stuff for the new shop and the P.A. still has the day job! MOL

But before we get stuck into this weeks relaxation exercise and colouring, mew remember our furst colouring book, the one with the pink cover?  Of course mew do, well the mandalas upon reflection were a little bit rubbish [a lot rubbish MOL] and we've come along way since we furst started, and in all honesty it was bugging our boggle terribly. So the other week we set about re-doing the book and have now furnished it with 16 completely new mandalas which we feel so much happier about.

And if mew'd like to get your mittens on our updated and vastly improved book one, click the link below to download* from our google drive. Plus it'll keep mew going until we return later in the year!

Pandora agrees that is is a monumental improvement on the furst effort, she said she was terribly embarrassed by the original one! MOL


Anyhoo, we do hope mew've all have a totally pawesome weekend, and that mew're ready fur the week ahead, so let's jump right in and start as always with our little breathing exercise, which we're sure mew all have down paw by now...  but if mew've furgotten, stop what mew're doing fur a moment and take deep fulfilling breaths; counting to five on the inhale and five on the exhale:

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Smooch is here again to offur mew assistance in getting your OM's on and Zen Harmonies happening, so just press play, close your eyes and follow his instructions.



Don't mew feel better already?  I know we do!


All the mandala's featured are created & designed by us, aka The B Team.
