A wanderer returns....
A long, long time ago, way back in March a lady, called Gigi, in Canada made a bunny rabbit as part of a swap organised by swap organiser extraordinaire, Queen Lucy, and sent it off. And she waited to hear from her swap partner (moi). And she waited. And she waited. That naughty rabbit didn't turn up, he got halfway and thought 'nah, I'll have a holiday whilst I'm at it, that Monkey woman can wait'. And off he went. I have no idea where.
But then, this week, there was a knock at the door and Mr Postman (a different one, not my usual) handed me a parcel containing a very weary, but very happy bunny. The ginger one has named him Percy. Quite impressive naming for a 2 yr old, I thought.
In Percy's pockets are carrots, and he has a cozy scarf around his neck, as well as a bag containing a book. He says it's his diary and I'm not to read it. Fair enough.
So, thank you Gigi, I love him (and so does his gingerness)
(although the locals aren't quite as sure...Pete the Monkey is determined to swipe that bag)
SUN TAN UPDATE: after a weekend, and a couple of days this week, in the sunshine I can confirm I am now a nice shade of mid beige. Ginge is still see-thru white, but has some pinkness in his cheeks (that is about as far as it goes). On a downside, I put sun cream on without using gloves and now have eczema all over my hands. (I'm allergic to sun cream - but only on my hands...it's very peculiar)
