You're never too old for Lego or Harry Potter. I'm so glad you had a happy Mother's Day, and that you are enjoying your iPad.

GOOD MORNING DEAR DZINTRA!

I was just wondering before I saw your page if you had celebrated Mother's Day when Europe does....but here you are, and I wish you a fabulous day of pampering and FUN! How lovely to receive such a fun gift to put a smile on your face! And your description of the fennel is intriguing. Now I really have to get myself some and sautée slices of the bulb! I love "earthy" tasting food and this would be lovely with a slab of salmon!

Enjoy your well-deserved celebration sweet friend! Anita

Oh enjoy ALL your gifts my dear sweet Dzintra! AND yesterday, I went to go pick up some herbs for my herb garden and I found the STEVIA "sugar herb"! Have you ever heard of stevia? The herb is 300 times sweeter than sugar and just a tiny torn off tip of the green herb in your tea or coffee is SO SWEET! And no calories, and it doesn't elevate your blood sugars (what I need to watch!) So needless to say, we had a super day out at the garden center! Wishing you a fun day, Anita

Hello Dzintra,

Are you going to play with it your just keep it in the packaging? I bet you are a player not a keeper. Have fun with your blocks. I know how much you love HP.

Happy days.
Bev.
