Please scroll down for Wordless Wednesday


I had bought a new broom for outside and when I tried it out, I found a parcel sitting at the front door. Being a careful person and the fact that it came from a fortress I had it checked by Rosie.

Rosie had slept deeply, and was rather annoyed that I asked her to play "finding bombs" dog and check the parcel. Finally she sniffed at it, found nothing suspect and fell asleep again. Reassured I opened the parcel and showed the content to Rosie.

as always when cats are not sure what they have to do they wash ! She also didn't seem very interested.

When I told her we would now start with learning arabic until we knew speaking zulu, she panicked but I calmed her down by telling her I would read each evening some pages of "The cat who had 14 Tales" to her. She wondered a little bit about the 14 tails on a cat, maybe she also was a little jalous because she only has one.

and then she started to play with the little bats.

You know who send me this wonderful parcel full of surprises ? Dr.John and his dear wife Betty right out of their fortress ! Dr. John had organized

Each day his wife Betty pulled a name out of a bucket and I won !! That's a real miracle because I never won anything ! But you can check here !

and here is a detailed list of the parcel's content :

- The Cat Who had Fourteen Tales (not tails) (I will start this book tonight !)
- A full gram of Spanish Saffron (we love it)
- 3 Halloween finger puppets (just in time for my decoration
- 3 Halloween bats (confiscated by Rosie)
- A genuine Irish Collector’s Spoon (have used it already for my afternoon tea)
- And a 3 disk 51 language immersion disk set. (Deep sigh !)

THANK YOU, THANK YOU so much ! you suddenly seem so near and real !!

That's wonderful, I am very happy for you! I never win anything either, but now you can't say that :)

I found this cat on facebook yesterday, hope it works here, because it looks cute (I think!)

Congrats! Sounded like interesting gifts indeed even though Rosie wasn't convinced.

Ehrm... Never won anything? If I don't recall wrong here, you have won once earlier: the crazy hat parade in the cyber cruise! But that wan a cyber competition, not a real one... *giggles*
