birthday bunny

yesterday, apart from being easter sunday, was my umpty-first birthday and, even though brian and david completely forgot, i was very lucky that a certain hippo remembered her bunny's special day...

christmas sparklers

i spotted this in a shop window and immediately thought of my friend, hippolyta, the diva of hippos...

unfortunately, brian said we didn't have enough euros: he's such a spoilsport!

early pressies

hippolyta and i had a very romantic get together over the weekend...

obviously two minds with but a single sweet thought: i gave hippolyta a bumper bar of hippo-embellished chocolate and she gave me a basket of marzipan animals – a bit of a bizarre collections as it turns out: a bear, a pig(let), a rabbit, an owl, a kangaroo ––– and a penguin...

except i'm beginning to feel there's a theme going on here and i wonder if she forgot and gave me a present that was actually intended for that well-known pooh-person with whom i happen to live...?


oh, yes and now we've also got an non-edible a penguin with ear muffs...
