3. Recently, _________ came in very handy.
4. I think that _________ is the most useless ____________.

1.Listening to music from the 80s and 90s makes me feel old. But I'm glad I spent my younger years then. We had the best music for sure. 
2. Still having that passion for music makes me feel young. However, after the death of my brother I have to say grief makes you feel old as well. I'm sure I've aged ten years.
3. Recently, wine came in very handy but I have to be careful as I have a tendency to drink too much when depressed. I have an addictive personality. 
4. I think that watching sport is the most useless way to spend time. I am not sporty at all and have never enjoyed participating. 

1. Getting tired makes me feel old.
2. Playing with Mum makes me feel young.
3. Recently, Mum's warm lap came in very handy.
4. I think that eating vegetables is the most useless thing to do. Mum eats a lot of them though, being vegan. I'll stick to my lovely chicken thanks!

Recover plastic with us this weekend and let's make the sea plastic-free

For every order made during Teemill's  ‘One Tee One Kg’ promotion, a kilogram of ocean-bound plastic is recovered and recycled - the equivalent of 50 plastic bottles. Teemill count the orders and fund the plastic recovery, which is done through Plastic Bank. As well as stopping plastic waste from polluting our oceans, Plastic Bank is a social enterprise, building a regenerative society with their ethical recycling ecosystems

Every order recovers 50 plastic bottles

Turning off the plastic tap and saving the planet.

Eight million plastic pieces find their way to our seas every single day. That's why each product at Teemill and on our own store is made from natural materials, powered by renewable energy and delivered in plastic-free packaging. Using natural materials means no nasty plastic microfibres are released into the ocean when washed.

Each order placed on our Teemill store this weekend is counted up and will sponsor the subsequent work with Plastic Bank 

Here are a few of Mum's designs available from her Teemill store.

Athena! You are a purrfect loaf! And in different colors too. We sit like that when it is cold and it has been really cold this winter! We love you and your Peep's fill-ins, except Mom says she is more into 60s-80s music (but then she is older than dirt) and we love that shirts are being made from plastic. Mom has some and tights too! Keep on being awesome. Purrs Marv

I like 60s and 70s music, but I think it depends how old you are. Judging by that I would assume I am bout 20 years older than your mum.

Such beautiful and warm selfies sweet Athena. Those were good answers. The older I get the more time I spend in my music room. I agree with #4 too.

Beautiful selfies. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I love your #4- I don't like any sports and I think all the team travel on planes doesn't help the environment. And I agree about n80's music. XO

Athena, we love your photo, which certainly made for some beautiful artwork. :)

We agree with your mum about #1. We love that era of music!

You look lovely posed so graciously! Well done you!

What a lovely selfie, Athena!

Erin the Cat Princess said...

Love the first selfie and the blue really lit you up. The greeny one made me shiver, which is strange as green we usually like.
Have a wonderful week!

Katie Isabella said...

Love the selfies, Athena. I actually like all of them best.
Plastic in the ocean is something that really really bothers mom. Has since she has known about it.

Eastside Cats said...

All that great music back then is probably why I have hearing loss now!
We always turned the stereo up HIGH, and those concerts...ah, good times.

Kitties Blue said...

Mom has to disagree on the music…50s and 60s were the best, but she knows it all depends on what was popular when one was growing up. Our mom is really old! That sweatshirt is so adorable. You are an excellent model, Athena. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer, Kizmet, Audrey & Raleigh

Thanks for your comments everyone, especially about music.

I love most music. I was born in the mid-sixties and I love 50s,60s and 70s as well as 80s and 90s. Not late 90s though. Also, I like some classical as well. I just don't like most of what's out there today.

BellaDharma and BellaSitta - Yeah, I try not to drink too much but it's so hard for me right now.
