It has been a busy, busy week. The Help has been busy and Blogville has been busy.
First of all on the ground here The Help has been driving The Boss around as he recovers from the eye surgery.
Apparently all has not gone as smoothly as it could and there is a little haemorrhage into the eye. Nothing serious the doctor says but it slows down progress.
I do not have a strong stomach for the queasy stuff so when they start talking about it I do this:
I’ll be glad for him when it’s all better.
As well as being busy at home Blogville has been a very busy place.
You may have heard that Misaki from The Misadventures of Misaki, a very attractive Alaskan Malamute, held a competition to find the first Patron Saint of Blogville.
There were thousands of entrants, well hundreds, well – a lot. I sent in a picture of the boy slaying a monster in the garden.
You can see here his commitment to learning how to be the best bodyguard he can be.
He didn’t win.
Perhaps I should have sent a picture of him slaying naughty monkey.
I haven’t told him he didn’t win partly because I didn’t tell him he was entered! He will improve at these things, we knew he was an outsider and still has a lot to learn.
There was however a very deserving and favoured winner. One who will fit the role so well and has already begun her ‘rule’ of Saint in a magnificently saintly way.
This is of course Mollie from Mollie’s Dog Treats.
Aren’t those eyes compelling?
And there was an equally moving runner up with Doggy from Doggy’s Style.
Fortunately Doggy had had a haircut for the day so his lovely eyes were on show to wring the hearts of all voters.
I was delighted with the results. We’ve talked about Mollie a lot and she spreads a lot of fun and goodness around Blogville and to prove it she passed on her prize to me!! (Well, maybe Raffles). How noble is that?
I was humbled and teary by the beautiful things that she said about me and it only goes to show how right it was that she won in the first place!
She is such a wise and discerning Mollie 😉 She made me feel a real star.
So a huge thank you to Mollie and I am so pleased that Doggy got runner up too.
It was great to see everyone’s contribution but sobering to see how dangerous Petville is out there. Apart from Raffles fighting his monster, we had Austin fighting a pom-pom, Shiner battling a stuffie, Easy scrapping with a Stegosaurus (hedgehog), Molly wrestling a Wenlock, Rumpy and Casey clashed with a dinosaur, and many other monsters the most scary of which seems to have been the killer carrot that Cress tangled with.
I had no idea that my toybox was so dangerous. It’s a good thing I have Raffy the Slayer for protection.
So once again thank you to my Blogville pals. Thank you for dreaming up fun things to take part in which helps to leaven the seriousness of reality and thank you for the generous spirit of friendship, encouragement and caring which I continue to receive.
And there are still many competitions out there to have fun with. Raffles and I are part of two coming up:
Sammy from One Spoiled Cat’s 2nd Blogosphere Anniversary Slumber Party May 10th
Hutchagoodlife is having a Blogoversary party with wild party pictures, The Help may well be shocked 😉
Keep an eye out for these fun events and I’m sure there are many more.
Have a wonderful day
Love from, Zena the humbled Princess.
