|Hardwick looking after Rocky, Muddy|
Hippo peering through and the
new kid on the block: Zdena
And .... Zdena Zebra ... so called because she is a follower of Dionysos – the God of Wine!!
Made my little heart sing – and everyone has commented ... what a lovely thought and how wonderful of you, Lenny, to send those over to me ...
... the card in particular pulls at our heart strings – everyone thinks it is "fab", "absolutely fab!!!" ...(the word as Neville describes the card ... a great friend of my uncle, with whom I had lunch on Tuesday - pancake day - yummie!!)
|Lenny's rays of sunshine|
Lenny – you are so kind and thoughtful ... putting together such a guzzly box for me for Valentine ... I shall enjoy and will be thinking of you more often than I normally do ...
Hardwick’s quite pleased to have a new playmate – he approves of Zdena ... she brightens up their lives ... Muddy Hippo is a bit muddy, Hardwick himself is a little bare – he knows he’s showing his age, while Rocky is a little tiny to shine out between Hardwick and Muddy ... but he keeps an eye on all things ...
|Valentine cupid puzzle|
They quite like chocolate ... so I can see the critters having a tuck in as well ... we’ll have a good and happy night tonight ...
I’m tempted to go out and see the film Les Mis ... but these critters might eat much of my chocolate ...and I might have eaten too much, so may need to rest my tum!!
To all blogging buddies ... I am not going anywhere – but I’m just going to take a month off and not participate or blog much – to get myself on track with all I want to do – new projects, sorting some technology out, spring cleaning and being ready for the future.
|Tuesday Tea with Mistress Snark|
Jezebel summoned me to Mistress Snark’s for tea... so I shall keep that appointment: Tuesday 12 March – I don’t think I could get away with missing it – I’d rather like my afternoon tea healthy and not bloodied ...
... but with Jezebel, she of the long projectile nails that can scrabble under the ocean to draw a poor unsuspecting English girl in to her parlour, we never know what might be floating in her punch – yugh!, or spread on those bloodied sandwiches ... eeeks ....
|Anthology launch 4th March|
Then there’s Nick’s Overcoming Adversity anthology launch .. and I shall join in the fun for that ... scheduled for Monday 4th March – what a great fundraising idea that was ... brilliant Nick ...
Well that’s me ... now to tuck into those choccies with a cup of tea methinks ... Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone ... may you have lots of love in your heart ... as young Lenny does for his family, friends, bloggers and them critters!!
See you very soon .... back by 16th/17th March ... all ready and raring to go for the A – Z challenge ....
... and on this note ... I am a minion ... so some of you may see me around doing some ground work for those amazing organisers ...
Happy Valentine's Day everyone .... and as you can see from the photos - the sun has been shining ...... bliss!!!
