I’ve Always Wanted My Very Own Dragon!

It amazes me just how many kind and encouraging folk there are on the blogsphere and I’ve been so fortunate to cross paths with them. An absolutely massive shout out goes to EvilSquirrel13, an incredibly amusing, talented and highly creative individual who very kindly nominated me and The Boys for a wonderful award. The Dragon’s Loyalty Award.

The Dragon's Loyalty Award

As a big thank you to this crazy, cool guy, here are some funky squirrel pictures I took a while back. These little rascals were causing havoc in my back garden. Actually, EvilSquirrel, I recorded a video but when my mother came in the room and saw what they were doing, she made some rather unsavoury comments about the rogues. I thought it best not to share that with you all!

7 facts about Ms Katykins, eh?

1. I’m in the midst of setting up an Online Literary Journal named Zest with my friend from uni. The first issue launches 1st April at Please check us out!

2. I got married this month. Here is a picture of me on the day.


3. I’m still struggling trying to figure out what I’m really good at in life.

4. I drink, what some people may deem as, far too much tea. But I love it and it makes me very, very happy.

5. The book I’m currently reading is ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ by Ira Levin. So far, me likey! :)

6. As I type this I’m wearing my black and white stripey gloves and my winter coat. I want winter to be over already. What on earth has happened to Spring?

7. I think I want more tea, right now.

Thank you to the loyal followers:

These are people who have followed us from the very start and who have always offered enthusiasm and encouragement! They also have really cracking blogs too, so go and check them out!!!

Supersize Me!

I was playing about the other day. I had drawn little pictures of Cyril and Willy and when I pasted them into a document, for some unknown reason, Willy was far bigger than Cyril. I actually thought that perhaps I could turn this into a skit. My time is very limited right now. And so, for now, this is just a taster of things to come.

Big Willy

This is a terrible picture – the sizing hasn’t worked. How’s that for irony? ;)

No Spineless Wonders Today

Apologies, there will be no Spineless Wonders today. Ms Katykins has a miserable stomach bug and, although she wanted to make up a little ‘we are sick’ cartoon, she didn’t have the buzz for it. Really, no critter puns intended! Hopefully normal service will resume tomorrow, but we’ll wait and see!

To the loyal fans, please stay warm and hydrated! We’re convinced Ms Katykins caught this bug through email! ;)

How Lucky Am I?

WOW! It’s time. I am guest starring in Nicole aka The Middlest Sister’s web comic this week! It’s amazing. The story is all based around true events from my childhood she even perfected the cerise coloured beret which is just like the one I had as a child. This is the most amazing prize! WOW! Thank you so so much Nicole. Guys, if you’re not already following this blog you should be!

Here it is!

It has been such a pleasure to work with Nicole who is just fantastic, so lovely and so creative! It’s just a brilliant prize and I’m delighted and very lucky! :)

Ms Katykins Needs Your Help!

Hello everyone! Apologies for the hiatus last week, I desperately needed some head space. Plus Cyril and Willy were getting impatient with all my intrusions into their daily lives!

Now I am back with a bit of a quandary. As many of you will know, I am soon getting married. The wedding invites are in the planning stage and a few people have suggested that a Spineless Wonders themed invite could be rather good. My mum is also keen to feature in the skit. Rather than have a big face in the background which is a terrible likeness of her, we’re considering creating a critter for her. I have come up with a few ideas so far, one of which she seems to particularly like. I’d like to ask you to vote for your favourite. These are just basic sketches and can be developed. If you don’t think any of them seem quite right, please do make a further suggestion, we’d love you to share your thoughts and inspiration!
