A Birthday Visit and Snow

Last Sunday we went to visit my owner's family for a birthday. I got to meet up with Candy again. And it turned out one of my cousins was there as well.

My owner's niece made a beautiful pig for us!
Of course my owner forgot to take the pig home, so we'll have to visit again sometime to get it.

It started to snow.

Candy and me with the candle holders my owner's niece and her mother made.

There were bunnies with their own small house.

It kept snowing.

My owner's niece and one of my owner's nephews made a snowman. Isn't he cool!

At the end of the afternoon we went out for dinner.

Candy and I were very curious what was in this pan.

Mussels. Yum!

I also got to taste a truffle croquette.

We played with the flags that were stuck in the croquettes.

I got hot chocolate with Amaretto for dessert.

Candy helped me reach it.

In the evening we went back to Groningen.
It had snowed there as well.

It was a really fun day.

Christmas at the Garden Center

We went to the garden center for a Christmas tree yesterday and we had a look at all the cool Christmas stuff on display.

There were swinging penguins.

Some kind of snow queen.

A cool fox.

This car was full of Christmassy houses and stuff.

Even a small fair!

I love this tower.

A Christmas Archway

There was even a Christmassy carousel horse.

There was also a fake wooden cabin.

Complete with a fake fire.


All in all it was really fun.
And we found the perfect tree!

Sinterklaas Brought Presents!

Sinterklaas brought us presents yesterday.
He was a day early because he has many presents to deliver and can't deliver them all in one day.

One of the presents was this really cool Cthulhu lamp!

There were cool hedgehog statues.

And books!!

I also got marzipan, a Cthulhu die, buttons, and a dinosaur eraser.

Thanks, Sinterklaas!

Surprise Visit by Sinterklaas

There was a knock on our backdoor yesterday and when cat and I investigated there were presents!

They were from Sinterklaas! Sometimes when you've been good he brings an early present. There were magazines and chocolate inside!

McPig and the City

This afternoon we went shopping.
I saw many cool books, but wasn't allowed to buy any, but got to make a wishlist for Sinterklaas.

At the Grote Markt we looked at the new building they're constructing.

It is going to be a sort of meeting place when it's finished.
I'm not sure if we need a new meeting place, but maybe it will be cool.

We stopped for food and a nice bottle of cider at Cafe Hooghoudt.

In the evening the Vismarkt looked beautiful with all the lights.

It was a fun afternoon!

We celebrated with friends and played Cards Against Humanity.
I liked this combination the most!

Still alive - An Update

I'm still alive!

My owner still isn't doing any interesting stuff, so I'm mainly reading and playing games. Here's an update on some of the things that happened.

I won a giveaway held by Susan Spann and I won a book, koi socks, candy, and a Japanese travel bag.

The book is signed to me!

We got a new trivia game as a present from friends and it's lots of fun.

We got amazing mail from Aimo.
My owner asked her if she could paint our character from the computer game Dragon Age Inquisition together with one of the other characters from the game. The result is absolutely wonderful! She also sent another drawing, and some swag featuring her artwork.

That's it for now.
I hope to have something fun to tell you about soon.

Halloween Zombies

The race pack for the Halloween Virtual Race from Zombies, Run arrived! Looks like we'll be walking instead of running this time, but I just couldn't miss out on a Halloween race.

More FairyLoot

I got myself another FairyLoot box!

FairyLoot is a monthly book subscription box that focuses on Young Adult fantasy literature. In every single one of their monthly boxes, you will receive a brand new Young Adult fantasy novel, 5-6 exclusive bookish goodies related to the theme of the box and other items sourced directly from the author.

If you ordered the August box and haven't received it yet, you might want to move on to avoid spoilers!

I was very excited for the arrival of the August box.
The theme was Other Worlds and this time I had no idea what the book might be.

I immediately opened the box and dove in to find what goodies were inside!

And again it was an amazing box, filled with loot and a cool books!

Here's a picture of all the loot.
I especially love the sword shaped Game of Thrones tea strainer and the Lord of the Rings magnetic bookmarks. I got two elves!

And this was the book that was in the box.
I already started on it and it's very mysterious and intriguing so far.

Yet another great box!
I will most certainly order another FairyLoot box in the future if the theme sounds cool enough.
