Today is the 96th anniversary of Finland becoming an independent nation. We celebrate freedom and great Finnish traditions such as bravely running through blizzards and snowdrifts to reach a safe house where we can eat a delicious bowl of poronkäristys. That's reindeer stew, so don't expect any deliveries of Christmas presents.

As Loyal Readers may recall, we had a very interesting parcel delivered earlier. It contained a Rubik cube with us on - Äiti did finally manage to solve it but it was far more difficult than an ordinary cube. And the rest of the parcel contained wonderful kitty drugs which seeped into the packaging. Pekka snorted the bubble wrap, and I preferred the brown paper option.

We are still dining out on the photos from our parcel. There were a couple of pipe cleaners inside and these were the centre of Mirsku's attention, and we were not going to challenge him.

So, what was inside the bubble wrap ? Well, it was nothing for us kitties, it was a nerdy indulgence of Äiti's. And actually it was on the last photo, behind Pekka's head. It was a personalised Rubik cube, with us on!
So, now we have our very own Rubik cube. And Äiti better get it solved soon - this is a bit of a mess!
