Ok, enough about the kitchen for one week. I just haveto tell you about my donkey Grissy.
When I was two (many, many, many years ago) I got a Steiff donkey from my parents. I played with it a lot and it's been with me for all this time. During the past ten years though I've just moved it around in our basement (it's not something you can easily store in a box…) and since Wille wasn't very interested in it when he was young and has no sentimental attachment to it I've been wanting to sell it for some time and this week I did.
We have a website called Blocket over here which is similar to Craigslist in the US and I put Grissy up for sale there. A nice lady called and wanted to buy him and I was really pleased.
It turns out this lady is involved in the Swedish Donkey Society, we're talking real live donkeys here, and she has a Donkey museum! Grissy will be part of her little exhibition. Isn't that the cutest and best way for my old pal to get a new home?! Hey, I can even go visit if I want to!
Mini & Bonus update:
Mini is doing much better. Thank you all who keep asking about her. She really feels special with all this international attention! We're still feeding her with the tube but hopefully after her next check up on Wednesday she'll get the appointment with the dentist to have her teeth fixed so she can eat normally again. On Wednesday they will sedate her and do an X-ray and check that the jaw has healed properly. I'm really anxious for her to get rid of the tube because this little princess does not want to stay indoors any longer. She sits by the kittky door and wants out. Now!
Bonus comes inside more often but he still thinks his sis smells funny and I think he's jealous (not) of her pretty red scarf… He hisses at her when they get to close to each other but it's slowly getting better. I think as soon as she gets rid of her "stuff" it'll be ok.
A couple of things that this accident has done for our litte family is that it has brought Bonus closer to Martin (he used to be a bit cross with Martin for not letting him up on the kitchen counters while cooking) and it has made Mini a bit more manageable, this lady did not like to be carried at all, but now we can carry her around a (little) bit without her freaking out completely. Every cloud does have it's silver lining.
Have a great weekend you guys!
