Monday, December 3

This isn't my fault .....



The humble hall cupboard (some may say closet). Most homes have one. Here's ours ......




..... well, the door of it anyway ......







The place to store all that cr stuff that doesn't have any other home. Shoes, brollies, coats and bags, electricity meters, gardening gloves ......









..... and monkees made of knit.









If you or anyone you know has been affected by this post, please write to Katy, at I'm a Ginger Monkey, as she gave me the idea. I would never have been able to think up such a cunning, dastardly and quite frankly brilliant scheme on my own. Honest.







And some may feel that today's thought for the day is particularly appropriate ......

Oh my, has 007 been naughty or is he into "S & M"?

Sussex Yorkie said...

Poor Monkey, hehe. I find that comment quite apt, for me anyway.....

Don't try to pass the blame missus - you know you are the guilty one! Love the thought for the day - I've been trying to get a copy of that for ages as it sums me up perfectly!!! Lucy x

Lesley said...

Oh my - nothing could have prepared me for the trauma of seeing 007 trussed up like that. Have you been overdoing the chocolate liquers at Monkee Towers?
Love your thought for the day. Very apt!

I don't know what to say.....
at least it wasn't one of your children or the meter man trusted up like a chicken.....
There are people that would pay a lot of money to have that done to them.....wouldn't be your day job would it??
You're not a dominatrix are you? It would make a lot of sense....

Kae said...

OMG you got me in stitches (pardon the pun lol) here LOL :D What has poor 007 done to deserve this??? Lol.

Love the thought for the day - that's me to a tee :D

trashalou said...

Haaa, haaaa, haaaaa. 007 has been in tighter spots than that. Feel sure Q will have supplied him with some fabulous gadget based around bananas, fountain pens or such which will free him from this situation. Then woe betide the evil genius who strung him up!

lucykate crafts... said...

lol at the idea of monkey s&m!!!, he looks like he's quite enjoying it ; )

Kaz said...

Lol!! Has anyone demanded a ransom yet?

The thought of the day is so true for me!

Michaela said...

Vera has just had to go for a cold shower. She became very flushed seeing 007 like that and had to go and calm down somewhere!

I'm a ginger rescue monkey said...

You WICKED WITCH, what have you done to my Monkee?????????? That's it....I'm google mapping your address and I'm on my way to rescue him [dials rspcka to report extreme cruelty to knitted animals]

DON'T WORRY, 007, MUMMY'S COMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jane said...

What can i say? i don't know whether to laugh or cry! come on 007 do your stuff and escape. Thought for the day is good too.

the vicious chicken said...

I seem to remember a time, long ago, when you complained because somebody else had used 007 as a door-stop... but nowadays there's an awful lot of ignominy being heaped upon him by you yourself; insufferable treatment involving far, far worse things than door-holding duties. You've changed, MM. You've changed.

But it is very funny ;o)

Kitty said...

OH MY GOD!

007's not trying one of those S&M heightened orgasm things is he? Surely you wouldn't be so cruel as to do that to him? :-O

Tee hee :-) x

My Paper World said...

Tooo funny for words!!!
p.s. I am creating your gift as we speak, thanks for sending your addy.

mrspao said...

Oh my - I think you'd better knit him a Vesper pronto!

lauren said...

...it's taken 43 years...but i THINK i might be...yeah...pretty sure

***i'm speechless!***

(don't worry...there's no way it'll last long. for example i am already wondering: is that REALLY duct tape? ...and if not, what is it? ...and if so, how will you get it off without 007's face looking all pulled and pilly? also: are your cupboards REALLY that neat & clean, or have you tidied for the photo? {if the former, be a sport and lie, ok?} ...see...told ya...not speechless FOR LONG...but still...it was quite an achievement on your part!)

sharon said...

mmhhh...very interesting, I too have a cupboard,rope and tape, thanks for the tip.x..I'm thinking Christmas day....hahahahhaaahahaha

I do not only need a monkey, and a link on your blog, but I need a copy of that calendar tooo!!!

Gina said...

Love the monkees... laughed hysterically at some of your posts and think the thoughts for the day are wonderful. Thank you for cheering up this very grey day!

Bea said...

I'm laughing.. (does that make me a bad person?)

Kate in Kent said...

OH MY GOD!! Poor 007!! I notice you've built up to this slowly with increasingly violent acts of torture so as to break everyone in gently...

Very, very funny though. I can't wait to show the husband this one...

tintocktap said...

Gotta keep them darn monkees in their place!

Leanne said...

What a laugh I will show my children. My husband grew up in England and always tells the kids when he was naughty he got put in the cupboard under the stairs which doesn't mean much in Oz as we don't have them. My kids will say 007 resembles their father when I show them.

Whow, do you keep your monkeys locked and tortured in closets in Britain 8-0
