~Surprise Gift From JoJo, a Blogger and the Smash Repairer~

I've had a couple of unexpected gifts lately

First of all the above fat 1/4.....little white bird and Pirate Pen from JoJo
The Pirate Pen she would of bought as I was in Bay Theatre's production of Pirates of Penzance last year and she still tells everyone I was a Policeman
She bought these last weekend when we had a little respite
so very, very thoughtful of her
Thank you so much Beautiful Girl xoxox

A surprise package a little while ago from Bev
2 little owl for me and one for JoJo

No surprises as to which one JoJo chose
of course, the Christmas themed one

Thank you so much dear Bev
Mine gets used every single day
You certainly surprised us with these!!!

After Mr Armchair's unfortunate mishap with a kangaroo leaving the car like this

it came back from the Smash Repairer looking like this

I saw Mr Armchair come up the stairs with a bunch of flowers and I was thinking oh how lovely they must be for me
He said look what the Smash Repairer gave me!!!
How cool are they.......and what a surprise
Thank You so much!!!

JoJo certainly knows how to choose great presents!! The pirate pen is particularly fun. :) The owl mug rugs are so cute, they have such sweet faces. The smash repairers did a great job on your car, it looks as good as new. Giving you flowers is such a nice thought.

Good morning precious friend! WOW, did that repairman do a great job on the car! I hope you never, ever have another run-in with a ROO! And Jojo is so thoughtful and sweet. HOW IS THAT COUGH? Are you singing lately? I bet your summer is underway now, as our autumn is finally starting to appear. Blessings of joy to you dear one. Anita

Surprise gifts are always wonderful, aren't they. Love the mug rugs, very cute. Very thoughtful of Jo-Jo to buy you a gift too and I'm sure she is so proud of you being a policeman in the play! :) Glad to see the car is fixed and how nice to give flowers.
