Little Updates and a Giveaway Winner


Hey guys, I am happy to be back after 2 weeks in Nepal Trip No.2 that was bracketed by stopovers in Singapore. Oh, and I am so happy to be back to kitty cuddles. And my desktop computer. So, tell me, what did I miss?

The smell of Autumn is in the Swiss air, and I'm looking forward to pumpkins! And apple pies! With this cooler season, I was inspired to give my blog banner a teeny-weeny face-lift. Spot the difference? What do you feel about it?

It was such fun hosting the giveaway, and I am happy to have a winner! Congratulations Tabetha of The Closet Intellectual, and thank you all for taking part! Rafflecopter made organising this giveaway easy, and I may be very well tempted to have another. Who knows!

That's four little updates, and I look forward to hearing from you.

    1. Thank you taking this "family photo"! We never had one with 4 of us :)

      Not sure if I have more to share with Blogland, or if people are still interested :D

  2. Aw, shoot...I didn't have time to absorb the old blog banner, so I can't spot the difference(s). I do like it, however, :)

    We get pumpkins here?! I guess that means I could make pumpkin pie...

    1. Watch out for Kurbis in the supermarket / farmer near you :)
      When you do make a pumpkin pie, do share! I have never made one from scratch! Speaking of which, never had a slice since moving to Switzerland...

  3. Welcome back, Juanita! :)
    Love your new banner... and am a bit jealous too! ;)
    Enjoy the Swiss autumn... it's gorgeous here on the Italian side of the Alps too, and I'm looking forward to the flaming reds and oranges of Indian Summer!

  4. Oh damn...just wrote you a long reply and lost the whole thing and I'm tired now...

    Was just going to say Nepal looked ace - you lucky thing - and that I was thankful for your comments. These days I have given up trying to recruit new followers but I still enjoy writing anyway. It is nice to have some visitors!

    As for Bubba - i may do a blog soon. He's an old boy now but he's fine. He's learnt to tolerate being picked up a bit more recently which is good. How is Fluffy?! Bet she's happy to see you!

    Anyway, off to bed now..speak soon! xxx

    1. Darn, I hate it when the internet fails... Sorry to hear that.

      Can't wait to hear from Bubba. Fluffy's still not old enough to tolerate cuddles. I'm hoping for that day to come; he's a wild one.
