Happy Hogswatch!

I got a scarf and a packet of hand cooked blackcurrant lozenges. I tried a few and they're delicious :D
Also got a lovely homemade Hogswatch card :D

Thank you Hogfather :D

I was naughty this year so got nothing off the Hogfather.
Harry on the other hand was very good and got a wonderful special edition woolen Gouger the Hog knitted hat with the optional extra sausage ties.
Thank you Hogfather. Harry says i'll post a pic on monday.
His card was lovely too :D

Happy Hogswatch one and all!

The lovely Hogfather was very creative this year, and made me a chain of beaded snowflakes :D I also got a grumpy librarian bookmark, two button badges with Greebo and the world turtle on, and a Hogswatch card with Death of Rats and Quoth :D :D :D

'nk you Hogfather

THANK YOU SECRET HOGFATHER![color=#FF0040][color=#FF0040][/color][/color]I've just opened two little parcels. One contained a beautifully made, tiny, wooden Hogswatch tree with Happy Hogwatch on one side and a little poem on t'other, which reads:
'Hogswatch is coming,
No goose will be found - it's time for ale and sausages to make our bellies round'.
I LOVE that and have exactly that for my supper tonight (vegetarian sausages and a bottle of wheat beer).
The larger parcel was a Build your own Stonehenge kit!!!!!! I always wanted to build a henge and now i can.......and will..... just as soon as I stop typing (and eating sausages) I may not be taking up the option of calling them mere Standing Stones and dancing naked round them (sorry, pardon for offending any maiden aunts out there) since it's not exactly the time of year to be outside in the nuddy........but the thought was kind and greatly appreciated
Aahh :D My very own henge :D :D
Thank you and Happy Hogwatch to one and all

Happy Hogswatch to everyboardie! :D The Hogsfather stopped off in Miami to send me a lovely bar of handmade soap - vanilla/musk. It has a sun umbrella and pink sea shell on the beach. Guess the Hogfather knows I'm just a beachbum at heart. Image
