I am overtired and hyped up, so I thought it would be a perfect time to write a blogpost!
Hello! How've you all been? I'm simply wonderful, though my wrist is quite sore. I can also touch my toes now, because I have been doing pilates everyday since Monday. It is only a 20minute workout, but it's better than nothing!
Today I have eaten only junk food. Donuts, pizza, lifesavers... it's been utterly delish.
There was also a little sad moment today, as I packaged up my sweet Gertrude to send her all the way to Portland, Oregon. And she's going Air Mail - pigs DO fly! haha
Here she is, just in case you forgot what she looks like:
Now she also has a blue dress with a yellow flower (like the original Penninah Pig). Every pig needs at least two dresses.
I love writing letters (even though my wrist is quite sore at the moment), and this is the letter which is tucked in the parcel which is travelling to a place far away from me:

Dear [wonderful giveaway winner],
Here at least is your sweet pig, won by you way back at the start of October.
I have named her Gertrude (Gertie for short) but I’m sure she would be quite happy should you decide to give her a new name.
I do apologise for taking so long to make her, and I hope she arrives safe and sound at her new home well before Christmas (though she may cut it fine!).
If she gets dirty, she is perfectly happy to be put in a delicates bag or a pillowcase and put in the washing machine on the cold cycle. Clothes dryers, however, she detests, preferring instead to lie in the sun or near a heater until she is nice and dry.
I hope she becomes a treasured toy, played with often. You will see that she already has two dresses. She did tell me that she longed to have a princess dress, but I told her to be patient, saying that no doubt she would be made one once she reached her new home in America.
Oh yes, I do hope that her new owners adore her!
