At work I met a distant relative. He caught the travel bug and is always on the road to try to reach new destinations. One of my owner's collegues is helping him on his quest to travel to exciting new places. I think he's very brave, I wouldn't want to travel with just a bug, I need my owner with me.
Yesterday afternoon I saw a program on tv that had these pigs in it!
Today there were two packages for me! They contained books that I had won over at vvb32 reads. Velvet always has the most amazing giveaways over at her blog I can tell you.
One of the books is 'Feed' by Mira Grant. It's about zombies!! I really look forward to reading it.
The other book is 'The Iron Duke' by Meljean Brook. I know it looks kind of romancy, with the bare chested guy on the cover, but I also got high hopes for this one as it got zombies too and it has Steampunk as well!
It's been rather quiet here the last few days, but today was a special day.
They finished the renovation of our house!!
Looks good on the outside. I wonder how the inside looks.
They put a new wall in our livingroom which makes it about 12 centimeters smaller. Not too happy with that, but they say it will be warmer and there will be less noise from the neighbours.
Random picture of the lovely sky outside.
Hey! What's this? I know for sure that wasn't on the wall when we left!
Ehm... Eww! I do not even want to know what that is.
And this doesn't look good either.
And I'm not entirely sure, but I do not think a window is supposed to look like this.
Ah, this is more like it.
All in all they did a nice job though, apart from the writing and weird spots and stuff. But we'll have a lot of work to do to get it all liveable again. Luckily we have a month to repaint and recarpet the house.
Just as we were about to leave to go back to our temporary house there was mail! The first mail after the renovation and it was for me!
So I took it with me and once we were at our temporary house I got out my letter opener.
It was a lovely Halloween card from Marlowe and his Mom!
The package turned out to be a book I won for Voodoo Bride at the blog of Alice Audrey. It looks like a very girly book, but Voodoo Bride is all happy with it and already started reading it.
For me there was a cool boomark send by Cate Gardner. I won the bookmark as a consolationprice in a giveaway. Cate's book 'Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits' sounds very cool and I hope my owner will get it for me one of these days. All in all cool mail for both me and Voodoo Bride! Thanks Alice and Cate!
I'm part of a large family of pigs.
We all live with my owner in Groningen, the Netherlands.
I travel a lot with my owner and I post stories and pictures of my life and travels on my blog. I also have a blog where I post book reviews.
