Wait Till I'm Ready, Mum! #sundayselfie

My mum never has any patience. Here I am grooming myself in preperation for my Sunday Selfie when she just came along ans snapped this shot before I was ready. She says even though it's not a proper selfie, but an action shot, it's purrfect for today's Sunday post. Honestly, Mum, could you not wait a bit?

I do admit that it's a good shot, though 😻

1. Sometimes I like ____________________ and sometimes I don’t. 
2. If I had a nickel for every time _____________________ , I would be rich. 
3. _________ is already _________, but I’m not complaining 
4. I haven’t yet decided _________.

1. Sometimes I like writing and sometimes I don’t. I used to love it, and it was once a great passion. 
2. If I had a nickel for every time someone annoyed me , I would be rich. 
3. Summer is already nearly over, but I’m not complaining. I prefer autumn and winter. The only thing with that though is that now I'm getting older, and so are my loved ones, these months mean another year drawing to a close and that time is no longer a friend. 
4. I haven’t yet decided on a grave memorial for my brother. It's only nearly a year since his burial so I still have time to decide. We have to wait a year so that the earth settles. 

1. Sometimes I like to play and sometimes I don’t. Usually when I'm in a fun mood Mum is ready for bed. I make her get up at 1am to play. I insist!
2. If I had a nickel for every time I have to make Mum give me more food, I would be rich. 
3. Summer is already nearly over, but I’m not complaining. Actually, that's not true as the warm months are really good - but not when it's very hot! 
4. I haven’t yet decided if I want to go outside in the catio this morning. It's too early for me.

It is a lovely action selfie, Athena.We haven't had a summer this year, a few hot days in June then rain nearly every day through July and continuing. We still have a hosepipe ban too, not that we need one with all this rain!

If I had a nickel for every supervisor or management person who annoyed me, I'd have retired a long time ago!

A cat grooming is a delight, poetry and purpose in motion. I/we think the last image is the micest of three delightful selfies.

Beautiful selfie and I love all the effects. Thank you both for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I had the same for #3. I am sure you will choose something your brother would have approved of for his marker. My sister wanted cremation and to be scattered so we are figuring out where to scatter on the one year anniversary. Athena, you should let your mum sleep. :) XO

The first and last images are our favorites! XX
