Finally after 1000 years of Mummy’s birthday, our gift for her arrived yesterday.

We just do not understand how a courier company, claiming to have world class business can be so extraordinarily inefficient!

The entire novelty of a surprise gift was gone due to their inefficiency, because we needed to tell Mummy that we haven’t forgotten or neglected to get her gift but it just hasn’t reached us yet!


It wasn’t exactly an enviable situation. Mummy wanted to know what we had ordered for her and whether it was from Daddy’s list of gifts or Mummy’s own.

It was rather difficult trying to keep it a secret from her.

For your reference, here are the two lists we had the choice to choose from.


Daddy’s List:

1. Any one of these



2. A 52 inch 120 hertz refresh rate 3D LED TV

3. A Home Theatre PC

4. Anything off this shelf!




5. ASUS G53J Super Gaming Laptop and Call of Duty- Black Ops’!



Mummy’s List:

  1. Complete set of Asterix and Obelix Comics
  2. Complete set of Asterix and Obelix Comics
  3. Complete set of Asterix and Obelix Comics
  4. Complete set of Asterix and Obelix Comics
  5. Complete set of Asterix and Obelix Comics


It really was a tough choice but we had managed to reach an unanimous decision.

And judging by the look on her face, we think our choice was right.

What do you think?

Pee Ess: Do you notice a peculiar fish eye effect in our pictures lately? Well, that is because we are forced to use the crappy phone camera these days. The saddest story of our lives is that our beautiful, precious camera ( Panasonic DMC FZ8) is damaged!

Mummy was trying to make Shadow sit down for a photography session and his paw caught the shoulder strap, which SHOULD HAVE BEEN around Mummy’s neck and NOT dangling around!

We want to clarify this right away that it was absolutely and entirely Mummy’s fault and Shadow wasn’t in any way responsible. He is a bouncy little pup and Mummy should know better than to keep shoulder straps of precious cameras dangling about!

We tried to get it repaired but it isn’t worth the expense. So, till the time we get a new camera, we must make do with this very unsatisfactory one available to us at present.

I definitely think you made the right choice for your mom's gift! Your mom looks pretty happy, even if it was late.

Oh, I think there would be serious, serious upset at our house if something happened to the camera! It would look a lot like Mom having a nervous breakdown. BOL! She loves that camera!
