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!!!!
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.
Nibbles Darwin xx
