Next up in the news this week...

Personal Purrsonal Training with Pandora and Smooch.

Pandora and Smooch are the designated purrsonal trainers for the P.A.'s workout schedule this week to help with her ongoing fitness rehab, though they have been rather slack and are more interested in what's going off in the courtyard, that's 5 packets of Dreamies docked from your paycheques fluffers! MOL

And yes, the P.A. still has actual VHS fitness video's OH MY COD the shame of it, and for those readers too young to know what VHS is, go ask your parents or even your grandparents. 

If mew're wondering what the contraption is to the left of Pandora, it's a pilates chair; although the P.A. hasn't used it recently as she's still got a long way to go to get back to her normal supurr strong and lifting heavy fitness level, which she complains bitterly about during every daily workout, but as we said each workout is step closer to where mew were before, so for fluff's sake don't give up.  

But she does find it quite disheartening some days, and she says it's really hard when progress is so slow... but as we said to her, it could've been a lot wurse, and be grateful for small mercies - she told us to go and get stuffed, did we say she's not coping well with it! MOL

And finally in the news this week... last week it was National Teddy Bear Day, Wed 9th September. We didn't find out until actually on the day when it was too late for last weeks post, but anyhoo Amber shared a couple of pics on Instagram, here's one of them with her favourite Polar Bear teddy called Baby Snuffle; she has loved this bear for at least 12 years...

  1. Oh, MY! Such great pics, Amber, Pandora with Smoochie, and Melvyn!

    As you say: Epic!

    Sorry that the PA's rehab is slow going, but each inch forward is exactly that...forward.

    Pawppy too, is making those half inch steps in the right direction...

    Its patience that we need to stock up on, right??

    Keep up the hard work, you will be rewarded, and then your smile(s) will return!

  2. Melvyn, yes, you look totally epic! And so do you Pandora, Smooch, Amber and Snuffle. :)

    Sorry to hear the P.A.'s rehab is slow going. I remember feeling frustrating while rehabbing after elbow surgery when I was still playing baseball. Please tell her to just keep going. It does not feel like it sometimes, but she will get there! XO

  3. Yikes! I just now realized I totally missed and forgot about Parsley's Birthday...I feel so ashamed:(

    Happy (very) Belated Birthday to YOU, Parsley!

    There; now we all feel much better:)

  4. I am sorry that the PA's rehab is going slowly, but any progress is good.

  11. Amber, you like them fuzzy and quiet, eh?
    Not Melvyn, Da Boyz have a set of sunglasses just like those; maybe it's time to break them out again, and see if they'll wear them long enough for a few snaps!
