Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

How's your week going? 

The internet issue is still not solved, and if mew missed any previous updates, click here to catch up. BT have sent out emails to say the fault is repaired however after several speed tests we are stills stuck at 12.5 download and 1.63 upload which is absolutely dire, when we should have around 70+ mbps.

Therefore we will endeavour to keep calm and carry on as best we can until it's fixed properly.

First up in the news 

 Parsley's Hissed Off As The Catmint Was Pruned

In between the rain, and let me tell mew the rain has been endless the last few weeks, the P.A. has been trying to do a bit of a clean up in the garden before the frosts come.

One of the jobs is pruning the catmint which is planted in a few of the mill wheel centres, as it tends to get really straggly, anyhoo Parsley appeared after this one had just been scalped and needless to say his was pretty hissed off as he was after a little bit of the green stuff! MOL

Smooch Goes Glamping in Melvyn's Tent

The tent is Melvyn's favourite snooze spot and the P.A. often finds him fast asleep in it usually first thing in the mornings. And nothing will wake him as he's just so comfy, in fact he's so soundly asleep that he can miss breakfast, either that or he's just not a morning purrson! 

This supurr snuggle spot is the reason he's so miffed in the next story.

Smooch snuck in after Melvyn had got out and soaked up all the warms left behind; what a smart dude!

And finally this week

Melvyn's Miffed!

Melvyn's Fudge's Modelling The Top Bandana Pick

Melvyn was late for this week's modelling session, so Fudge stepped in at the last minute, and we'd just done the catwalk run when Melvyn appeared. He'd only just gotten out of bed. #OOPS!

Anyhoo, Melvyn was pretty miffed, as the modelling gig is all his. So we came to an amicable agreement and he said he'd model a festive snowman bandana from last year just to get the Catmas vibes happening.

Check out their latest catwalk videos on Instagram :

We think they both did a furrbulous job; it's nice to see how they both have a different catwalk style.

And here's a bit of extra gossip, Melvyn was seen adding an alarm clock to his Catmas letter to Santa Paws! MOL

Which one should he model next?

That's us done for today. Amber will be back on Friday with another fab book just for mew and if mew missed Monday's post here's the link to catch up on The Catmas Crafting with Cats Rerun Part 1 and Tuesday's Catmas Crafting with Cats Rerun Part 2, so if mew feel like getting your mittens making festive stuff, we've got mew covered.

We are running all our previous Catmas Craft posts throughout December so keep a lookout for those in the coming weeks. We are also just planning this year's Catmas craft post and can't decide between a Festive Gingerbread House or a Catmas Igloo Nightclub; what do mew think we should make? Let us know in the comments.

In the meantime
