Breaking news:

My grandma has bought herself a pony for Christmas.

Mum told me on the phone this afternoon. I was like, "Oh wow. AWESOME."

And I asked her old Grandma is, just to check how long it'd be before i clock up sufficient mana to make those kind of impulse purchases. (Because if I know my grandmother, I know this wasn't something that had a lot of forward planning).

Mum said, "Seventy-eight" and then she did one of those snort-laughs and continued: "Seventy, going on eight".

Both an aunty and a cousin have brand spanking new babies to show off this year at our family Christmas in Wanganui, but I think Grandma has pipped them at the post.

I sure know what's gonna be holding my attention... Boring slug-like baby that can't even hold itself up, let alone converse, or fun pretty PONY?! :D Bring on next weekend!!

PS: Grandma's website is here if you're interested (hasn't been updated in a while, no pony pics sorry).

You have the coolest Grandma in the world!

Sounds like an amazingly fun christmas day. I don't think there's going to be a wrapped-up little kitty for me this year, so I'd spend all the time with the pony.

I got our cat a little name tag with our phone number on it, but he's not allowed to go missing before Christmas (he has to wait like everyone else).

Yes, she is definitely the coolest Grandma I have :D

Are you one of those NO GIFTS BEFOREHAND nazis, aye Rebecca?? Why am I not surprised?! :P I have been given one present in advance so far & have exerted unheard of control in not ripping in to shreds. Yet.

And - yes - if you can't make it to Wangas, Zelda, & any others, I do intend on taking a BLITZ of photos of the pony! fret not! :D

this is funny because I seem to remember you saying on more than one occasion something about a pony being the best gift (as if it was completely unobtainable).
your nana rocks!
