We've entered Ruby into "Perky Pets" competition in our local newspaper!??? Well, I was talked into it by my eldest daughter, Sarah. She filled in the on-line entry form complete with perky picture (see above). Only two days later it was me who got the phone call from the paper asking me why we'd entered Ruby!!!!
Talk about put on the spot. Anyway, as you will all know if you read my blog, I can waffle for Britain, lol. In amongst everything I said, the reporter misunderstood Ruby's age lol,I think I managed to sound just about coherent. Thursday night is the night that photographs of entrants are shown and quotes from their proud owners printed. So early afternoon I went to pay my paper bill and had a quick scan of the Perky Pets item in that night's paper. No photo of Ruby, so I texted Sarah to tell her that we mustn't have been successful as Ruby wasn't in the paper.
However, on my arrival home the paper was open at the Perky Pets page and Sarah was pointng, telling me to read the quotes, they'd only gone and printed all my waffle about my baby girl Ruby. HilARIOUS! (APPARENTLY, THEY ARE TRYING TO ARRANGE THAT RUBY'S WILL APPEAR NEXT WEEK)
So all I have to do now is find a good photo of Oscar to enter him too - there's no show without punch - wish us luck!
