I have the word 'parvenue' stuck in my head. 

Which is irritating, but good for my vocabulary, as the only way to get rid of it, is to look it up in the dictionary to be sure that it means what I think it means (Inconceivable !").

It's spelt 'parvenu', innit? ... anyway, I'll never have enough money to be one.

Depends if it's a male or a female, innit.

I think it basically means what I think of as "ponse" or one who has risen to what is seen as above their station,- more money than acceptance by the class they have joined.

Could be wrong though.

To me, it's 'recently arrived', IOW nouveau riche.

Shiraz is beautiful.

Shiraz was an exceptionally lovely cat. As you can see, he was very handsome but he was also very good-natured. He was willing to be friends with anyone - people or other cats - and was delightful company. I got him from the Sheffield Cat Shelter, where he'd been taken as a stray. He was very affectionate, fun and a real character. He died of old age about 10 years ago and I atill miss him.

I still miss my previous cats too. They leave a hole new ones never fill because they have their own personailities and make their own space in our lives.
