the toy society
In some very exciting news, I am soon to be the lucky recipient of some toys to giveway as part of The Toy Society. If you haven't yet checked out this fantastic project as run by Bianca from Sadie and Lance, get yourself over there soon.
I've been busy scouting locations for the drop. Is it to be outside the local library? Perhaps down near the beach or the railway station?
I initially thought of the playground near home, but someone set fire to it a while back. I hope they burned themselves in the process. Why would someone do that? It was probably the same people who throw beer cans into our front garden at least once a fortnight.
At least the beer cans are empty. A few years back we came home after being on holidays to find someone had thrown tins of asparagus and tomato pieces over the fence. Full tins, mind you. Oh, and dishwasher tablets. Very strange.
We agonised long and hard over whether we should use the tins or not. In the end we did and no harm came to us. I chose not to use the tablets though as a dishwasher repair man costs a lot more than a trip to the doctor.
To the perpetrator, whole tomatoes would be good next time, and would a few tins of crab meat kill you?
