Will the real Megan please stand up . . . .

It’s time to come clean with you all, I’ve been masquerading as my cat Megan since I joined GoY in January !
Some of you will know this already, but, I’m really Shirley and can’t keep up the pretence any longer.
Being Megan the cat has been awful, the cat food is boring and those dry munchie bits are horrible ! Plus, the neighbours never want me round in their garden.
So, I’ve re-joined as Shirley_Tulip as it’s a lovely flower with my name to it !
I shall ‘re-favourite’ my existing favourite members, are you keeping up with this so far ?
Then, you’ll get really bored of my garden pics as I shall re-submit them for my ‘Garden ’ reference section.
When the make-over is complete I’ll post some pics , so, for about 1 week I’ll have both accounts running, then Megan will disappear from the screen !
Apparently, I’m not the first to do this, but will probably be the last … lol

So, it’s goodbye from Megan and hello to Shirley … ah that feels better !

Thanks for explaining all this Megley...
From the pic. it seems you are no longer sitting on the fence, but jumped down to enjoy some more dry munchie bits...
I'll try not to get confused over all this... ;o)

5 May, 2010

 

Tt - all will become clear within the week (I hope ! ) It's called 'doing a Blodyn' .. lol

5 May, 2010

 

Lol Shirley! No more cat food for you and no more housework for Megan - seems a good deal all round! Love the photos of Megan - she's beautiful. How's the makeover progressing??

5 May, 2010

 

Hi Katnip - not much done today as they needed to finish a job elsewhere as the dry weather meant they could infill a block paved drive with a 'special fine sand'. No worries.

5 May, 2010

 

Ah...thats why your photos have disappeared ! Hello Shirley..and welcome to GoY ! Lol

5 May, 2010

 

doesnt take much to confuse me these days anyway Shirley,but i get your drift ..if you know what i mean ..:o))

5 May, 2010

 

Bb and Joan - YOU'RE confused - all will make more sense next week when Megan disappears : o ( (

5 May, 2010

 

glad i dont have to go through that transformation lol, good job i dont have a cat to call myself after too lol :o))

5 May, 2010

 

Hello Shirley and the real Megan ( shes so sweet)

5 May, 2010

 

Val - not so sweet at 5.30 am when she jumps on the bed with so much force you think she does it on purpose ! Would hate to be without her. : o ) )

5 May, 2010

 

I know the feeling Shirley, when I have to hoover cat fur off all my clothes ! lol

5 May, 2010

 

Oh,shirley,this made me smile.Do you remember me asking you a while back,what was the name of your cat? ..and that's how it started..so really,its all my fault !! Anyway,shirley tulip is a lovely name :o)) ..and then again,so is Megan:o))

5 May, 2010

 

Bloomer - I thought it was your fault ! Megan has been with us for almost 3 years now, her owner sadly died suddenly and there were 3 cats and 1 dog to be re-homed ! Pleased to say they all found new homes. : o )

5 May, 2010

 

I quite like the name Megan but then I like Shirley too. Tulip is a fabulous flower and a colourful welcome after winter but why does the name Valentine keep coming to mind? ;-))

5 May, 2010

 

Shirley Valentine, a very amusing, but also sad, film. Don't forget Bassey, Temple and all the sit-com 'Shirleys' ! : o )

5 May, 2010

 

I sometimes wondered why your garden wasn't filled with those lovely tulips, Shirley, lol (perhaps it is, really?). Now, I wonder if I should stop being me, and try a new ID? Can't think of anything, though. :-))

5 May, 2010

 

Do you remember that comedy film with Steve Martin,I think it was "Airplane" or something like that,where he kept saying..."please stop calling me Shirley? "whenever someone said surely Lol...

5 May, 2010

 

David - stay just the way you are ! I have 30 of the 'Shirley' tulips, gift from our son, ah, how thoughtful. : o ) )

5 May, 2010

 

David - don't seem able to PM anyone for some reason, I'm not ignoring your PM honestly ! Will contact Peter & Ajay, perhaps due to having 2 accounts running ?
Bloomer - I certainly do remember that film, it's all people said to me for weeks .. : o ) ) )

5 May, 2010

 

Hi Shirley - Isn't it better now being called by your proper name. I did the same and it feels much more comfortable.
I think you'll be able to pm after a few days. It happened with me aswell. I can't remember the explanation I had - some precautionary measure I think.

5 May, 2010

 

Don't worry, Megan - I mean Shirley - it will be something simple, and shouldn't have anything to do with accounts (you managed to PM earlier, after all). I see from your "new" pics now that you do have the tulips, after all! :-))).

Oh, we crossed there, Hywel. Glad to read that this is just temporary. :-))

Was only kiddin', will just have to stay as plain old me. :-))

Err, just went back to look and the Shirleys have gone??????

5 May, 2010

 

I'm not sure why we're supposed to use a different name, some can be long and difficult to type. Mine is easy to sus as I'm a He.

6 May, 2010

 

two lovely names Megan and Shirley,
lol ill try to call you by the proper name from now on Shirley

6 May, 2010

 

thought it was you as you added me to your favs..... lol... Megan... i mean Shirley.. i had to laugh when i read your blog......you did make me laugh.... : O ))... so shirley it is then ... but i think we shall all think of you as megan...lol ps.... im not really holly but im staying that way..lol

6 May, 2010

 

.........and I'm not Lily either and when I first joined I looked like a cat called Daisy, all very confusing but then it's all part of GOY fun! I already thought of you as 'sit-com Shirley' anyway and I'd recognize that face anywhere! lol

6 May, 2010

 

Thanks ladies - it's taking me a while to put my plant photos back on this page from the Megan one, I'll persevere though as it's for my reference realy, can't rely on the memory too much !
Oi Lily - is that a good thing ... lol

6 May, 2010

 

But of course Shirley......it suits you better than when you had tabby skin and whiskers!

7 May, 2010

 

I may still have those features ... lol

7 May, 2010

 

whiskers maybe.....but tabby skin? ....best go and see the doc! lol

8 May, 2010

 

Megan is so boooootttttttttiful, as for you Shirley I was confused because I recognised the pic,so glad you explained, I `m usually lincs but really don`t mind although I might change my pic cos it makes me feel cold..........

9 May, 2010

 

Welcome back Lincs. Megan IS beautiful but not , as this morning, when she had a tiny mouse in her mouth at the back door ! She was NOT allowed in for ages. Also, I'm frustrated today as I cannot find my 'gardening book' where I write plants bought, where and when etc. aaagh .. it's in ths house somewhere but not showing up. Cold down here again. : o ( (
!

9 May, 2010

 

i still think of you as megan...lol

9 May, 2010

 

Megan will vanish from GoY in a few days time . . . . ..

9 May, 2010

 

: O ))

9 May, 2010

 

She has gone!!....I went into my favs...clicked......and nothing.......
Glad you are back Shirley.....and as yourself.......

PS: Megan is a beautiful puss !!

12 May, 2010

 

Well thankyou, I'll tell Megan you think that ! Would you believe she's caught 3 mice in the past 2 weeks and actually growled at me when I approached her 1 of those times ! I think the make-over is disturbing los of mice for her. I'm glad to be myself again. : o ) ) )

12 May, 2010

 

You must be feeling....sort of....liberated....lol

12 May, 2010

 

Yes I am, miss the fur coat though . . . lol

12 May, 2010

 

At last I`ve found you Shirley! It must be nice to not be a cat anymore...meow...lol! ;o))
