For Me?

Howdy Darwin fans, I am in a really good mood today, want to know why?  Of course you do, because I know my good mood will make all my readers feel 100% better about not having me in their lives on a daily basis.  Well let me tell you a story...

Sunday was Stuart's birthday, he got lots of presents and lots of cards, and then he and Janie went out for the day and left me all alone, well apart from my radio, which you all know how much I love listening to.  There was a lot about something called the Eurovision, something called Blue did not do as well as they had expected.  I could of told them their mistake, should of called themselves Grey, and they would of been a runaway success.  Honestly, you can't tell people sometimes!!!!!

Anyway, I digress, it seems that Stuart was born on the same day his Mum was, which confuses me a little, as I am sure that would make them brother and sister, but maybe humans think differently about such things, they are very strange you know.

Anyway, I digress again, the next day Stuart went to work, and he came home with a surprise from some very nice people called Val and Jonathan, they had given him a card AND TWO presents.  Stuart opened the card, and I thought, 'WOW, that looks good for a nibble or two later'.  In the card, Val or Jonathan had written, 'P.S. Pressie really for Darwin, but I'm sure he'll share'.  There was some other stuff written but that wasn't important, I did my impatient dance as Stuart opened the first pressie, a packet of flaked almonds, my favourite nuts, wow weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!  

The second pressie was a huge bag of mixed nuts and dried fruits, which I soon stuck my head in to see what was what. As you can see from the pictures, Stuart gave me a huge dried apricot, it was as big as my head, he then tipped the rest of the bag into one of those horrid plastic containers with a lid.  I can chew open bags, but not those containers, yet!!!!  Stuart says that my pressie will keep nice and fresh in the container, but I think he did it so he could sneak one of MY nuts or fruits when he thinks I am not looking!!!!

The pressies were very nicely wrapped, thank you very much, and I particularly liked this nice cream coloured bow, that was on top of one of them.  The other had a bow as well, but it was red, I don't like the colour red, it clashes with my bum, but, this one, the cream bow was lovely.

It tasted good too!!!

Thank you very much Val and Jonathan for my lovely pressies, but please remember in future,

What's mine is mine, and what's yours is mine too.  Darwin's don't share.

It's written on a blog somewhere, so it's got to be true.

OH, happy birthday to you both. How yummy your treats sound. Almonds are my all time favorite crunchy snack too! Watch your snacks, those Stuart's can be quite tricky! ;o)I see why you like that bow best, it really is pretty. Thank you for sharing your birthday!!!

You don't have to tell me how tricky's Stuarts can be. I have to keep my beady eye on him all the time.

I have noticed my treats have been vanishing, and I have not been eating them.
