41

The cookies made by my goddaughters's mother and sent to me as a gift. My friend L. likes to decorate cookies and cakes. In these cookies, you will find the words "Parabéns Sandra" which means "Congratulations Sandra". They were my birthday cake :-) I blew the candles yesterday evening. The cookies were absolutely delicious!!

I coudn't get them earlier in the post office because I was in London. So, I can say I had a surprise party ;-) Very private, but a surprise party ;-)

From Coisas Minhas II

We arrived at home last Tuesday evening. Look at the surprise I had in my living room! No, this is not my cat, but the cat of one of my neighbours. My cat was on the sofa.They were both very quiet when we got in the living room. I didn't see him right away because his colour is very similar to the colour of the new TV furniture.

He must have gotten in when my neighbour J. opened the backyard/living room door a little bit so that my cat could go to the backyard for a couple of minutes. J. was here taking care of the cat litter, his food and water supplies. My neighbour lives next door and generally when we go away, he comes twice a day.

Yesterday, I was also in the post office to get my mother's present: a book about the European Royal Families who came to live in Portugal during World War II.They stayed mainly in the towns of Sintra and Cascais. Never in history there were so many crowned heads living in the same place at the same time. This book was written by the French Prince, Charles Philippe D'Orléans, married with the Portuguese Duchess Diana of Cadaval.

Previously, my mother sent to me another book about a great lady I admire very much, the Portuguese Princess, Adelaide of Braganza. In times of crisis, the story of this Princess is in fact an inspiration. She almost got killed by the Gestapo. By the way, she married a Dutch doctor ;-)

 

I leave you now with the trailer of the musical I went to see in London: "Les Misérables".

Stay well :-)

PS1:I know I have been away. Sorry. But I've been very busy.

PS2: Thanks again to the ones who sent me emails and sms's of congratulations. :-)

Muitos parabéns, Sandrinha!! :D
What a beautiful surprise, I love the look of those cakes!
I once found a cat relaxing on my carpet in the living room once - I kind of panicked, bec. we have a little bunny and normally, cats tend to be quite mean to bunnies! But this one must have been used to other house pets, bec. he was just sitting there, making himself quite at home...
That book about la infanta rebelde, sounds quite interesting!
Beijinhos querida amiguinha!! Lol!
