I'm ecstatic as I have won a big Google lottery that I don't seem to remember having entered. I received the email with the UK office address listed as:

Google Corporation®
Belgrave House,
76 Buckingham Palace Road,
London SW1W 9TQ,
United Kingdom.


It goes on to say this is a consolation prize of 850,000.00 GBP! I just need to send in the following information and they will get back with me:

(1) Your contact address:
(2) Your Tel/Fax numbers:
(3) Your Nationality/Country:
(4) Your Full Name:
(5) Sex:
(6) Occupation:
(7) Age:
(8) Ever won an online lottery?


Oh and the contact email address is out of their Vietnam office. Imagine that, Google now has an office in Vietnam! I assume it might be a way to get around paying some kind of big UK prize tax!

CONTACT CLAIMS OFFICE:
Google Promotion Board
Dr. Williams Gibson
google.claim@zing.vn


I promise to remember all of my Cellar friends when I get my check.

At 1405 hrs today Juju & I were blessed with a perfectly healthy, beautiful Grand-daughter. I was there when she was born and I'm at home getting ready to go back to hospital now. What an amazing thing. Quite a miracle.

Carrot no longer has a crate at all. It's gone! I have folded it away. No more ruddy great crate taking up a massive chunk of my tiny living room! Hurrah :

And Carrotchops loves the new arrangement. He has his sloggy bed and blanket thathe pulls about and makes into a gorillas in the mist style nest, and then come sleep time, he transfers to a little area under the worksurface, where a washing machine used to live. That way he can keep an eye on the stairs door, and the front door at the same time.

Last night having gone to bed an hour earlier to read for a bit before sleeping, I crept downstairs to make a cuppa and there he was. All snuggled up with his blanket under the work surface. He didn't get up, he just lifted his head and watched me sleepily. I patted his head told him to go back to sleep and he lay back down.

I went upstairs with a lump in my throat. He's not just my puppeh now, he's my dog.
