Day 25 - Friday 25th January

"Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get" - Forrest Gump

I so love this movie quote! I will leave you to interpret as you wish!

I was totally stumped as to what to do for the prompt today and then the strangest thing just happened to me – I would say almost spooky if I believed in that sort of thing.

I was just doing the housework and hoovering the stairs, when the postman knocked at the door with a parcel for me. Well I wasn't expecting anything but I signed for it anyway. I was thinking maybe I had won something – not that I had entered any competition that I could think of!!! Anyway, when I looked down at the parcel, it wasn't for me at all but the house across the road, so I gave it back to the postman.

So I carried on with the housework and I had just got to the top of the stairs with the hoover, when there was another knock at the door. I went down to answer it and it was the postman again. He said he knew he had a parcel for us and handed me...

... a box of Thornton’s chocolate reindeers that I had won off their website back in December.

How weird is that!!!!

Trouble is, now ZoĆ« is hanging off my arm whilst I am trying to write this begging for chocolate – I need to photograph them first and then we will tuck into them!!! There are 3 reindeers, so I suppose we ought to save one for Daddy!!!

Now that is what I call spooky, it was just meant to be.
Roll on the prompt that says 'money grows on trees' you might get lucky again !!!! :)

Just love DD's eyes they are going to break a few hearts one day!
