All thanks to my good friends Holly and Stan, I’m getting all excited about Chrimbo now. Holly likes these dolls called Polly Pockets and Stanley likes Hot Wheels cars. Kamyar had a whale of a time looking through this huge box with loads of little Hot Wheels cars all thrown in together. At the end he picked out five and lined them all up in front of me. It was very clear that he wanted all of them because every time I would pick one, he would say, ‘What about this one then?’ and I would say, ‘Well get that one then.’ To be honest I wasn’t really paying much attention to the cars as I was too busy drooling over the Polly Pockets myself. They had little handbags and little high heel shoes and everything. One of them had a swimming pool with a slide and a dolphin. Why on earth would I want to waste my precious time in the toyshop looking at tiny cars when there were Polly Pockets?
We bought two little cars and one doll at the end. After breakfast this morning, we both sat at each end of the sofa, studying our toys. ‘Can I keep the Green one?’ said Kamyar at the end. I gave him a motherly smile, the kind that your mother would give you when she had bought a birthday present for a friend of yours and you wanted to keep it for yourself. So he went back to admiring the car through its box again. Meanwhile I was dying to open the Polly Pocket myself and see what she would look like with her hat and shoes on, holing her handbag and her bunch of flowers.


PS I love this :-)

it is xmass time and one would like to sit on the other side of the tree awaiting the unwrapping ceremony rather than spending the time to buy all those wrapped presents :-S

P.S: we all do have sessions of uprising attraction towards toyshops ;-)

My dear you didn't answer me fonts on all the weblogs are smaller now? I have to make mine large and bold to be readable. Your characters are tiny.

Gazankhan, your fonts seem to be too big. Maybe you see them different than we do!

I don't know if it's my eyes or browser my dear Shadi! I have to shoose the large fonts, there is still one huge font left.Thank you my dear, you answered me at last. Shirin seems to be too busy these days!

It's the browser, I don't know why but it does that sometimes.
