Yesterday evening at 6 pm the door bell was ringing. That was quite unusual and Mr. Gattino asked me immediately "who is it ?" I told him that I am not yet able to look through the walls and the door. He sighed, grumbled and I heard him open the door. Then : "Are you expecting a parcel from the States ?" I looked at the big parcel and said "No" Ah he said you probably ordered something without knowing ! I told him that so far I had never ordered something on the net. The man from Taxi Post asked me to sign a paper and handed over this parcel to me.
I was really surprised, last time I had got a parcel I had to pick it up myself from the post office and now they have a special delivery service ! Snail mail in progress !
I looked at the sender and it was MELLI !! What a surprise !! I took a knife and worked on the parcel. Mr. Gattino asked me what was in it. I said that I don't have X-ray eyes yet. I cut and cut and cut and then came this :
I digged through and found a smaller parcel wrapped in bubble paper. I cut and cut and cut again and finally found a little parcel. Meanwhile Mr. Gattino was wondering if the parcel had been packed to play football with it (soccer) or if it should go around the world.
and finally I found these two little ceramic cats ! So beautiful and special, I couldn't believe that it was for me that somebody so far away had taken time to choose a present for me, had wrapped it so carefully and send it to me. I really was very touched. And then I thought I had to take pictures and to really point out the beauty of the cats I was looking for a white background. There was none in the whole house.
So I choose Arthur, he is white and anyway he doesn't care what I do when he sleeps. Even behind his back. Aren't they cute ?
and before I will find them a special place in my cat collection I put them on the mantel together with Santa.
Thank, you, thank you Melli !!
