|Woohoo look what a lovely surprise I got|
|Yay....new book to read|
You know, I'm pretty sure now that God has blessed me by surrounding me with nice people. I got a parcel last week ( sent to my parents' home address didn't get it until this week when they visited) from Anna in Sweden. ( Her blog address is on my blog roll feel free to visit) I would have THANKED Anna straight away the minute I got a call from mum to say I have a parcel from Sweden but I wanted to open the parcel myself and take some shots and blog about it.
And so here is my blog one week late. Anna and I met on another friend's blog and graduated to become less anonymous by being facebook friends some time last year. She's sent me two delicious books written by Swedish authors. ( I'll read them both at Easter....am giving up books for Lent..oh boy it's a bit of an adjustment) I've posted pictures of the two books.
And this blog is specially to say I feel very touched by this gift. Thank you Anna!!!!
|I went up a level on Smurf Village|
|I spotted this rather interesting top. But decided at that last minute that it was rather too adventurous for my liking|
|3 dresses. Two made my hips look HUGE and the third looked like a glamorous house dress|
|I'm giving up books and magazines for Lent. And TIMES decides to have a SALE. *duh*|

|Cello resting before being played|
I performed for the first time ( okay just realised this is the third time... but first time in a group) last friday evening. It was for charity. No they didn't pay us to stop playing. Some wine was served which was helpful. I was surrounded by very talented muscially inspiring young ( and I DO mean young ) individuals who played the violin, cello, saxophone, keyboard,guitar and flute. The first song was scary but after that, it became enjoyable. We ended with the "can can" song which we played FASTER and LOUDER with the crowd egging us on by clapping enthusiastically. Musician without Borders!

|A quiet Sunday....|
Why is it ( rule of shopping like murphy's law) that when you're actively looking for an outfit you cannot find one that's suitable? I am just after going through my closet with a fine tooth comb in a sorry attempt to find a totally black outfit. The result...one black dress thoroughly suitable except....I must have been slightly drunk when I bought it. It clings at the wrong places. Then I proceeded to try my OLD dark blue skirts in the hope of palming it off as black. NO such luck. When themed with the black comfy T shirt I like...the faded dark blue skirt....looked decidedly BLUE rather than black. When I switched cupboards I finally found something!!! An old dress I bought a few years back. Never worn. Still fits ( just about) and looks pretty decent. So the moral of the story is this....buy loads and keep. You never know when you might need a dress.
|This was taken before I got CREAMED by Adda:(|
On a different note I have to sadly admit that I have been thoroughly and consistently creamed by Adda during our scrabble mini tournaments. ( Usually done at the nearby mamak stall) The Mamaks sometimes ( during a lull in business) stand behind us and silently watch. A bit unnerving at times but generally they leave us pretty much alone. We can go on forever. I am a bad loser and an even worse winner. I think Adda gets a kick out of me MOANING away when I get creamed.

|What I had for dinner....a week ago|
Feeling a little bit like the chicken in the picture this week. It's been busy. The to-do-list is still THAT long and absolutely refuses to be trimmed despite all my best efforts. I'm onto my second Penelope Lively book today. Yes despite moaning about work I've squeezed a little bit of "me" time and managed to successfully finish a paperback without rushing. The last three chapters were read this morning and that caused a bit of a whopping headache. I've only just gotten rid of the headache. It took ONE panadol, a mug of coffee and a cold wet head of hair to sort this out.
( update on smurf village: 5 more smurfberries to getting a smurfette....4% more to reaching level 22)
