"Present? For me?!"
For both of us, Mick. It's from your auntie Shell--do you remember me telling you about how I won the giveaway at The Raspberry Rabbits ? Here's our prize!
You look fine. Let's open it up and show everyone.
It's a handmade star! Isn't it gorgeous?
"Can I chew on it?"
"Not even a nibble?"
"Auntie Shell would let me nibble on it."
No, she wouldn't; she worked very hard on it.
"Well, she won't mind if I chew the wrapping paper, will she?"
You can chew the wrapping paper.
"Good--she sends the best paper. Tell her I said thanks."
But wait, there was more!
Along with the lovely star I won was an envelope, and inside the envelope was...
and a handmade card! YAY!!
and chocolates and tea, and oh, do I feel so spoiled!
Thanks lots, Shell!
(and don't think you're not getting a gift in return for this.. it just might not get to you until after Christmas, though)
A couple of other things to mention before I sign off:
Mickey's meditation room is now official. He says that he can now finally perfect his loaf technique.
