Day Eighteen

Exciting times kids! Got a special package from Ms Stinkypaw, and obviously I don' t have the willpower to wait til Xmas, so I got stuck in. Check out the stuff!

The cutest ever dachshund, with his own bone in his back pocket! Oh yeah, that's right, he has a back pocket! Some hot chocolate that definitely won't survive til Xmas with this sudden cold snap that we are having (I tell you, I haven't felt my feet in about three days, it's so cold) and in some kind of psychic marvellousness, some maple spread, which I am looking forward to trying on toast! Why psychic? I hear you ask. Well, because today is none other than Maple Syrup Day. Stinkypaw, thank you very much, you are the most fabulous blend, I salute you!

In other news, just spent ages in my workshop trying to rivet something on J's Xmas present that really did not want to be riveted. Blasted thing! Thankfully i finally figured it out, but i was in there til 10pm. Added to that it's started snowing here, and its extremely freezing. Gah, I only want snow when it gets me out of going to work and I can build a snowman/penguin and then come inside to a toasty house, and have a hot cup of tea, eat to toasty, er, toast, and get snuggled up with my favourite young man on a sofa under a duvet and watch films/TV. Mmmmm, sounds like a feverish fantasy.... perhaps one day....

My metabolism boost worked! I skimmed past that pesky pound that i was stuck on with ease this morning! Though now I'm a bit worried because I had a salad for dinner, but then after being cold all day and all evening in my shed, I ate some stew that my mum had left in the kitchen, including a fair few potatoes. Curses you cold weather! Curses! Maybe I have used many calories keeping warm. Last night I couldn't sleep because my feet were so cold. Then this morning I woke up and discovered I could hardly move my shoulder without stabs of pain running down my back, up my neck and arm. It seems to have eased a bit now, but not much. I blame the cold. Bad cold! Will leave all my lights and electrical appliances on tonight in a last ditch attempt to hurry along global warming and make it 20 degrees Celsius tomorrow.

Happy to see the dog (which I thought was cute when I saw it and thought of you, of course!) made it safe in its special box. It's not much, but as they say (whomever they are!)"it's the thought that counts", right? Right! Glad you agree.

BTW, you could live your fantasy almost daily over here, we're freezing our asses off. (which I wish was happening for real, what a load off!). It's not -16C (or 3.2F) - argh!

Ooooh, definately it's the thought that counts! He is now stationed alongside my other dachshunds, looking extremely flambouyant and colourful! I shall call him Tarquin!

We have just got snow over here, and my fantasy has now changed to a hot summers day. Funny, that....
