Yesterday I had the most wonderful surprise.
There was a note through the door from the postman to go and collect a parcel for my partner. (He had ordered some dull techy thing - well dull to me, he was ecstatic about it!), so I marched off to the post office.... and actually there were 2 parcels, and one was for me. Now parcels always make me excited, and so it was high excitement at lunch time when we finally had the chance to sit down and savour the moment of opening it.
It was well wrapped up, and took some opening, and as I was opening it began to smell lovely!
Inside were these beautiful postcards, with some lovely messages to cheer me up before returning to work next week (2 sleeps to go - arrgggh)
And then inside the parcel was the most adorable little pouch, with giraffes on, and I am going to use this as a pencil case I have decided. Also, a fab book about Oxford, my home town, and so i am going to really love reading this. And then..... the biggest bundle of the most incredible scraps I have ever seen. The reason the parcel smelt so lovely was that there was the tiniest bottle of wonderful perfume in there - can you spot it in the photo?? And these ribbons (I am on the hunt now for tutorials which can encorporate these ribbons into something cute - tips anyone?). Plus the cutest pin with beads on it....
Before I say anymore many of you will know who this came from... it's my school friend Jan (Isisjem), who got me into blogging in the first place (and to whom I am greatly indebted for this). If you haven't already, check out her fantastic blog here.
So, thank you Jan, so very much......
And, my sewing maching came back from being serviced today - and it is much quieter when sewing now!
