I have already told you about Marta´s advent calendar, the one she has made for me this year, with one gift for every day through advent, from December 1st till December 24th. Yesterday it was time to open the last gift. Only a tiny little gift was left in the basket, and the night before Marta made me promise that I would not open it until she was awake the next morning. Of course I promised, and then, after I had been up for a few hours already, time had come.......
With eager fingers I tore off the wrapping, to find a little piece of paper:
Hi, this is a first clue. If you want to find the last gift in your advent calendar, you have to search where the pea is put to check if one is a princess.....
And quite right, under my mattress I found a tiny packet, shaped like a pea. Inside was another piece of paper:
This is clue number 2. You like to read books, but it is a long time since you´ve read Harry Potter and the Philosopher´s Stone. What about checking it?
So I did of course, and here is what I found:
Your husband was quite an artist when he was young, and arent´t we lucky to have two of his pieces of art hanging here in this house. I wonder, where is that?
Haha, remind me to write a blog post about Terje´s art some day :-)
I went there, and found:
This is the forth and last clue. Thanks to you we now have a huge, fantastic television, and I was lucky to get our old one. But where is my old one now? May be together with your last gift?
I was all smiling now. I ran down the stairs to the basement, found the gift, ran back up where Terje and Marta were waiting and started unwrapping
A doormat :-)
And now I wonder, how many of you will use it the coming year?
By the way, marta has now proved that I am NOT a princess.
Merry Christmas, and thanks for all the lovely greetings yesterday.
