About surprises - Gazette Issue 2 -  1425.S.R.

Before I remind you of the clock fiddling of next month again, I'll remind you of the upcoming Sweetheart's Day on February 14th. And who else reminded me of that but my own sweetheart of a daughter, in her article about the upcoming OAKS! So buy something nice for that special person in your life. Or persons, ofcourse. *counts on his fingers: daughter, sister, niece..* That'll be four (one extra in case I forget someone... But don't start any rumours there, dear readers!) boxes of sweets for me, please, Mr Shopkeeper! But... O dear, they are all avid readers of the Gazette, so I can forget about the element of surprise now!

Luckily there is more to be surprised about this month:...
