I completely forgot…
…about a phone call I received about a month ago from an insurance company telling me that a friend had nominated me to receive a free gift. To be honest, I wasn’t paying much attention as there were more pressing matters to attend to.
Anyhow, here I was, sitting all comfy in my chair, typing away at job profiles for my thirteen subordinate staff (I haven’t even applied for the post yet, but I’m already doing all the work), when a courier gent, dressed like a sunflower on steroids, pops in telling me I must sign for a parcel.
Thinking that Jenna, our receptionist, is probably hiding out at the back of the building feeding her nicotine habit, I trot off to grace is manifest sheet with my million dollar signature. To my suprise, the parcel was consigned to me. *Squeee!*
Inside the box, which is clearly marked with the insurance company’s name was the following:
A funky black bag with pink polka dots…sealed with a combination lock
An Insurance Policy, entitling me to R5000 free cover for the next six months
An informative magazine
I listened to the CD and during the interviews, a voice interrupts the bulletin to give the code of the lock.
I quickly unlocked the lock and to my great delight found the following goodies inside.
Isabella Garcia Hand and Body Wash
Isabella Garcia Hand and Body Lotion
Some of you already know, but most of you don’t that I supplement my income by selling Sh’zen products. They have gorgeous hand lotions and lovely body washes, but nothing in the range (okay, maybe the Perfect Endings products) smells as gorgeous as the Isabella Garcia goodies I got today.
I also know that there is another parcel on the way to me from a fellow blogger, which I am also looking forward to receiving. I know that it contains books, but I don’t know what books, so there is still an element of surprise attached.
On other fronts, I have invited Carmen and Ewan for dinner tonight. I am making my comforting-perfect-for-winter three-cheese lasagne, which I will be serving with a pineapple salad and/or a green salad, depending on how much time I have. There will be definitely be red wine (I have a KWV Merlot in the cellar that has been calling out my name to be opened and enjoyed with some company) and I’m thinking Chocolate Port or liqueur coffees for afterwards.
I reckon the day started okay, has progressed to pretty well, and thus it will end on a high note.
