First - and most important. Don't forget the 6th BlogOlympic Training Session this Monday! The format and competition is secret, but all will be revealed in good time.
As I am in the UK, it is starting at 10pm British Summer Time. Check the countdown clock in my sidebar for your start time!
Ha! I bet you'd all thought I'd forgotten! Nope! :-)
And I was pleasantly surprised to get 'Fanmail'. Yep, got my first honest to god fan email this week, from a lurker:
Dear CQ...Hope you appreciate fan-mail!!
Just had to let you know what a huge fan I am of both CQ's Palace and the BRITCATS blog. I've been following both almost from the start ....and would love to join in properly, but alas, I don't currently have internet access at home. I have a cute little female cat (tortie and white) called Tinker who's always in trouble (her name reflects something of her "cattitude") and as soon as I get my own computer, I'm going to start a blog for her too. Like you, I love writing (& would love to do so either for myself or the pussy cat) but at present I'm just a rather frustrated blogster... but you have inspired me, nonetheless!
However, I'll probably just have to "lurk" for the time being (sigh!).
Please keep up the excellent work CQ, and I'll carry on reading and enjoying.
Thanks for all the entertainment, and Tinker says to tell you "meow (hiya)" too...!
Thank you for the message, PB, and I'll do my best to keep standards high here in the Palace!
And, just to massage my fragile ego a little more, this comment was tucked away in yesterday's post.......

So thank you all, for visiting my modest little blog about my modest little life. I am constantly overwhelmed by the love out there.
Can't beat a bit of bloglove :-)
And finally, this was sent to me at work - I LOVE it (especially 'Pretty House and Big Scary Road!) :-)
ps - kudos to anyone who can tell me where the title of this post comes from - ie, who said it and in what film.......
