Mischief Managed

After close to two months of solid effort and losing some of his precious hair, Mr M finally completed his Christmas gift jigsaw puzzle, Marauders Map. It was hard work but it was fun to watch it take shape. I wish I could have it framed but it is too big, sadly.

Well done, Mr M. Mischief managed.

Seasons Greetings to all

Be careful

about not only what you wish for, but also what you actually discuss with your husband about it ๐Ÿ˜‰

We were having this discussion about pets. Both of us have had aย pet in the past and were discussing the possibility of having a pet in the future. I am a dog person and my husband likes both dogs and cats but isn’t very hyper about having a pet now. I was trying to pitch my view of having a pet once we have a better and larger space etc etc… he was having none of it, too much work etc etc… This discussion went on for some time and we decided to ‘park’ the conversation about pets for a later date ๐Ÿ˜›

And then I get this as my Christmas gift ๐Ÿ˜†ย along with a very lovely card.


It is called ‘newborn Teksta’ which barks like a dog, responds to your claps and if you press a button, it will sit and sing a song (doggy style) and it will also jump to your arms if you press another button. It follows you around if you keep talking to it, even though it finds it a little difficult to maneuver on the carpet. But I got my wish granted for now. I think this is his way of saying that the ‘parked’ conversation about pets is ‘suspended’ forever ๐Ÿ˜‰
