Not much, but I did get the expansion pack for Betrayal at House on the Hill. :D

Is there an anthropomorphic personification in charge of pleasant things that turn up out of the blue or that appear without any rational explanation?

I was upstairs in my bedroom this afternoon when one of the moggies was playing with something he'd found. I was alerted because it sounded metalic and I thought he'd pinched one of my earrings or something.

Once I'd retrieved the item from his playful paws and claws, it turned out to be a 1910 three pence piece from the reign of George V :shock: and it's in very good condition :D

Now, can someone please explain to me how this either turned up in my bedroom or was found and brought home by the cat? Glingle, glingle . . .

Simple Grace, your deadbeat cat is finally paying rent. However as he's on life number 8 he only has coins from a really really long time ago.

To digress back to being on topic, I got lies sleeping and some lindt chocolate. I suggested to essi than rather than play the neurotypical guessing game we'd just get each other books and told her what book i wanted. The book i got her is in Finnish and i cannot even pronounce it, let alone spell it.
