Book Reviews with Amber at The Mewton-Clawson Library featuring **A Cat's Guide to the Night Sky** by Stuart Atkinson PLUS Friendly Fill-Ins
Hello gorgeous library guests
Welcome to the Mewton-Clawson Library at BBHQ
Thank mew for joining me in the stacks today and oh fluffing dear...
This is the car park at the P.A.'s work yesterday, it was a gnats whisker from flooding all the workshops again, and tonight as I'm writing this we're all praying that we don't get any more rain or snow as to have to deal with another flood disaster is so heartbreaking and disheartening especially with the added pressure of the covid situation too.
The floodwater comes from the main road to the right and from the hill behind, and even though we maintain our ditches; they are dug out and cleared every year but sadly due to more and more building all the flood plains and wash land are diminishing and the business is at the lowest level, so it gets flooded.
What is really sad, is the business has been running from this site since 1923, and the local council and other government departments don't give a fluff. The P.A. even applied for planning purrmission in 2015 to build a new workshop higher up on the site, but it was rejected as it's in the heart of the greenbelt.
Another sad thing, lots of other peeps get planning in greenbelt on land that should never have anything built on - how is that happening I hear mew ask? Well, the rumour has it that a 'brown envelope stuffed with the green stuff' (and I don't mean catnip) on the QT makes things happen.
So there mew have it, a legitimate business running for 3 generations and nearly 100 years can't get planning for a new workshop or any assistance. Yet, some building companies and individuals that have only recently purrchased land in the area can get whatever they want.
Sometimes life really sucks, but there are always books so let's review one now.
Today the P.A. is also joining in Friday Fill-ins Blog Hop with the pawesome 15 & Meowing and Four-Le
1. I learned _________ the hard way.
2. Everyone should _________ at least once in their lives.
3. Lately, I've been thinking a lot about _________.
4. I'll never be too old to _________.
The P.A.'s answers are...
1. I learned that not all peeps are like me or have my ethics and morals, the hard way.
2. Everyone should adopt a pet at least once in their lives.
3. Lately, I've been thinking a lot about; lots of things from book plot lines to new products for the BBHQ Kwerky Kat Boutique, my mind is overflowing with thoughts! LOL
4. I'll never be too old to adopt cats.
Let's see what I've got to show mew this time!
This week's top book pick is...
Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:
If you look up at the sky on a dark night, what do you see? There’s a whole universe staring back at you. In the company of Felicity the cat discover the phases of the moon, the constellations and how to spot the Northern Lights and the Milky Way.
The P.A. saw this gorgeous book on one of our cat blogging pals pawesome blogs last year, and for the life of her she can't remember which one, so if mew reviewed this last year - thank mew, and purrlease let me know in the comments so I can add your link to my post as without mew I would have never got this ameowzing book as a Catmas pressie. Anyhoo needless to say, I really did tell the P.A. off for having a memory like a sieve and said the next time she sees a lovely book to write down where she saw it, seriously mew just can't get the staff these days.
My Ratings Scale
I really hope mew enjoy the book as much as I did if mew decide to read it.
It's time fur me to say BFN or bye-fur-now as mew know the drill, so many books, so little time and I'll be back next week with another specially paw-picked book just for mew, and don't furget that all my previous reviews can be found on my Book Review page.
Until next time...
Keep calm and read more books
