Our Little Nest. My Valentine’s Day Post. Oh Boy !

💘 ~Our Little Nest~ 💘

As promised, this is my Valentine’s Day post, from me to only you as no-one else reads this blog anyway.

I have built us a little nest … 


…. to keep the two of us snug and warm.




Hey, cut it out you three.  This is meant to be a romantic post between me and my favourite female reader who is definitely a lady, possibly a lady, probably a lady, no way a lady, other than a lady.  I haven’t quite worked her out yet.


Sweetie, you may use anything in the apartment ………




Cats !  Do you mind ?  I want my favourite female reader to go wobbly at the knees over this post !


Honey, you are very welcome to use my internet, as well as watching live English speaking TV and thousands of  the newest HD movies in English with Greek subtitles.  GREEK SUBTITLES !  Heck, I’m English living in Spain !  If you can read Greek that’s a bonus.  I can’t as it’s all Greek to me !  (Δεν μπορώ, όπως είναι όλα τα ελληνικά σε μένα!)


I’ve not yet seen that great musical Zebra The Greek,  or the seafaring blockbuster Up The Greek Without A Paddle.  Have you ?  Maybe we can cuddle up and watch them together, then nothing would be done.  No sleeping, eating, housework, showers or feeding the cats.



…..There are lots of naughty TV channels.  You know, the ones that can make a man blind !


Why not Samantha ?


Yep !






I’ve gone blind now.  I may need a caregiver at this rate.  Now, where IS my laptop ?  


Let’s go to the kitchen my dearest favourite reader.


Would you like a drink ?  Wine ?  Vinegar ?  Olive oil ?  Whatever tickles your fancy.



I have a large double bed which we can share.


Why Sonic ?





Typical !  You three have just ruined my post of love. You cats are like having a cuckoo in the little nest.


Heck !  Oh well, there is always next year.





Oh boy !


Do you … *sigh* … what’s the point.

Heehee.  Happy Valentine’s Day !  🙂 ❤

    • Hi Lynne 🙂
      Thank you so much for loving my posts and I do hope that you have a Happy Valentine’s Day. Ralph xox ❤


  1. Happy Valentine’s Day, Ralph!
    I specified your name because I didn’t want the cats or clock to think I was sending hearts to them.
    J & J had a portrait taken for S&S…. I’ll have to send it later, perhaps a “May Day” greeting. It seems to be lost in the myriad of photos I have taken of my new Art Gown.
    This is why I am commenting from Art Gowns, not GLaM.
    I am busy working on my new girl. however, my Valentine to you is that my next Art Gown is for you. (not the cats). Although, Jeepo is wildly adept at snagging them & creating nasty pulls. I’m sure Sonic will be very impressed.
    What will she look like?
    Guess we will both have to wait and see!
    HVD! That would be… Happy Valentine’s Day, not Happy V+n*^$%^ D%s312e.
    Much love, Resa xoxo <# ❤

    • Hello dear Resa 🙂
      Happy Valentine’s Day from a very foggy 1am friend from southern Spain. I could be foggy too rather than the spooky weather outside. Sonic and Samantha are fast asleep in their baskets so hopefully I won’t be disturbed by them wandering across the keyboard.
      Thank you so much for the hearts. Rather topical for Valentine’s day, don’t you think ? What a coincidence !
      I am really looking forward to seeing the portrait of J&J. May Day is a good choice.
      Wow, what will she look like ? You really do have me guessing, don’t you ? And what a wonderful Valentine’s present ! I can wait *drumming fingers on desktop* 🙂
      Jeepo and Sonic are pretty much the same in fabric destruction. Sonic has laddered my trousers with thread coming out everywhere, my legs would be the same if they were fabric, instead of which it looks like I have stood in front of an exploding grenade. Ouch !
      I’ll accept your Happy Valentine Day with great joy dear friend.
      Love and hugs. Ralph xox ❤ #<

      • So, my next Art Gown goes live in 2 days. Then I will begin the process of the next one, which will be dedicated to you. As you can see from the frequency of new Art Gown posts, they take 3-4 months to make one.
        Try not to wear out your desktop while waiting. Desks are expensive! 😀
        Happy ♡♡♡♡♡ Day

      • Wow, you have been working hard ! I wonder what your new gown looks like. Two days to go ! I am amazed at the different designs that you have come up with and all so totally different. Thank you so much dear friend for dedicating the next one to me. I am really, really honoured.
        Oh well, back to my romantic evening with my two snoring cats.
        Much love ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. Ralph, laughing all the way through your Post of Love! You’d better settle on the Ultra-Deluxe Kitty Bed instead! Or you’ll be in BIG TROUBLE with 2 chair, bed and everywhere cats, one door stop cat and a Coo-Coo clock in the nest. Yep, maybe next year! I heard the lot of them echo NOT on that one. Happy Valentine’s Day, my friend! 💜 Christine

    • Good evening dear Amanda 🙂
      Thank you so much. I am so pleased that you enjoyed this post.
      Actually I have only just got back home. After three days of almost torrential rain my cupboards and fridge were almost empty. So, as the day has been warm and sunny I went shopping and all is now stocked up.
      It’s just gone 8pm and, like you, I am home alone with the cats who are fast asleep in their baskets. Which is great as I can get on with answering your lovely comment.
      Happy Valentine’s Day my friend.
      Big hug. Ralph xox ❤


  3. Happy Valentine’s Day, Ralphie baby. Keep working on it, one day someone will throw in the towel and declare her undying love for you, the cats and the clock.

      So now I know what turns you on, or getting close, as I have apple vinegar and Sarsons. I think that the Sarsons will do the trick especially when added to fish and chips. A very romantic meal 🙂 lol

  7. Happy Valentine’s Day, Ralph. You promised a spectacular Valentine’s Day and what an invitation this is–except for the cat sabotage. You do realize they rule the Spanish roost don’t you? (Says the lady who got up at 4:00 to let her perrita go out.) I am indulging this morning in a cup of hot chocolate and I’ll make one for you too. Nothing says love like chocolate! 💝😘😉 Linda

      Well it is almost 1 o’clock in the morning and Valentine’s Day as passed me by whereas it must be in full swing where you are. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment including a lovely cup of hot chocolate. I must say that it has been a very long time since I have had a hot drink made for me. Thank you.
      I was going to suggest that you install a door flap for your puppy, but on second thoughts she would keep you awake all night crashing in and out, so being woken up at 4am isn’t so bad after all.
      Happy Valentine’s Day ! They hope you are having a good one.

      Of course I published this post especially for you Kate. I have worked out what WordPress is really doing. All the other comments are computer generated and not from real people. So there is only you and I chatting here. Of course you are my special lady, well my only special lady. 🙂
      I am so glad that you enjoy my posts. I usually have no idea for my next post, but WordPress generates a good one at the right time. Shucks, am I computer generated ? 😉 lol

  11. he he he yep sounds about right when you have animals in control and they are in control. Well my wife and I had a lovely valentines day. I have recently gone gluten free and am experimenting. Let’s just say that lunch was absolutely disgusting and we had to cook pizza instead, gluten free for me. She wasn’t feeling well and then I had a horrible IBS attack but…..as I said to her. Everyday is valentine’s day when I am with you. Oh and the dog, Dante decided to dig up the lawn again, the guinea pigs, were guinea pigs and the fish kept leaping around as if he were preparing for the Olympics. he he he have a great week my friend. :):):)
