After a month in the US, Ljilja, my lovely roomate, is back. She has a nice tan and beautiful white teeth, and a brand new wardrobe! She also has lots of stories of all the people that just loved on her (and she on them!). I was also included in the love - thanks to Corina, Deb, Pam, Shelly, Luanne and Lauryn who all sent gifts and to Ljilja who brought back LOOOOOADS of things for me too.
I also got my personal shoppers: Corina and Ljilja to spend some of my birthday money from my aunt Janet for me on some much needed clothes. And I bought myself (an also much needed) digital camera with all the trimmings (I got it for a GREAT price on ebay - thanks to Corina who went looking for me!). Here I am with ALL my loot: But the presents don't mean as much to me as having Ljilja back!!!
