 Epic Greetings Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

What have we got to tell mew this week? The weather has been a little better, and by all indications, it's going to be a lovely weekend over Easter so that means we could get some extra jobs done in the garden. In fact, the P.A. has bought a tin of red paint as our Time Travelling Telephone Box needs a bit of tickle, so maybe we might start the preparations on that. Shall we make a video of it being spruced up?

First up in the news this week

Fudge is getting ready for Easter and looking for a suitable bandana.

He thought we had one, but after much searching, he couldn't find it.

Do mew think this one works? 

Or should he get the P.A. to make a new one, with some fabric she has in the craft room?

Next up in the news

If mew saw Amber's post last Friday, where she got her murder mittens on a pom pom - see the link at the bottom of the post. She murderised it most vehemently.

Melvyn decided not to take any chances with his favourite pom poms in the BBHQ office and promptly moved them on top of the beam, well out of reach from Amber's murder mittens.

He goes and checks on them several times a day to make sure that Fudge hasn't knocked them on the floor, but so far, so good.

And for cod's sake, don't let on to Amber there are more pom poms which have been squirrelled away out of reach, as mew know what will happen!

Finally this week

Mew may remember on last week's News Round-Up that Smooch was in the plant pot keeping the catnip shoots warm.

Well, it would appear that he and Parsley are sharing the catnip warming duties, and are sharing the shifts between them. As mew can see Smooch is firmly ensconced again, and Parsley is heading into the catservatory for snacks after his long shift in the sunshine! MOL 

This week's hot gossip is, that we just set some new catnip seeds this week.
