Wooooh!

I got mail! I got a parcel even! From the UK! From Cathy! With strict instructions not to open it until Saturday, which is my birthday. (How did Cathy know when my birthday is? Where did I leave that lying around?)

Iím so excited. Since I canít open it yet, Iím amusing myself eliminating the possibilities.
Itís not Big Ben unless heís smaller than I thought.
Itís not a handsome prince cos itís the wrong shape.
Itís not one of the guards from Buckingham Palace (see above re: shape).
Itís not a nice cuppa, cos the packaging ainít soggy.
Itís not scones, cos they wouldnít have made it past the sniffer dogs.
Itís not the obligatory birthday hanky, cos itís too big and my nana already sent me that.
Itís not a soccer ball. Unless itís deflated and neatly folded.
Itís not chocolates, unless theyíre so well packed they donít rattle.
I hope itís not something that would break if you rattled it too hard.

There are still several possibilities under investigation. Iíll keep you posted.

is it an exotic english flightless bird?
Is it a plane?

Happy birthday from me to you for Saturday! May your days be full of raisins and cookies, and your nights warm and toasty.
