Half Term

We've done some painting

We have marvelled at seals ( a little apprehensively at first!)

They really are a lot prettier in the water!

Little boys have got up to new tricks

Little girls have practised sewing

And Mummy has discovered where all the missing toys were.....
posted through the cat flap.

Little boys obviously learnt two new tricks!

Thanks, that was fun!

To end the most wonderful 1st swap experience was this scrumptious yarn.
I have often gazed at Manos yarn in magazines but have never come up with an excuse to treat myself, and now I don't have to.

The only dilemma now is what to knit with it!
Suggestions welcome!

On the sixth day of specialness....... partner sent to me, a lovely new book!
I love craft books, even if I never make anything from them I love looking at the pictures.
They make me happy!

I am also the proud new owner of a scrumptious hot water bottle cover. The colour is a gorgeous blue and it's made in organic merino wool.
Thank you Philippa!

The list goes on.....if only you could smell this package,
the deep, rich smell of chocolate is wonderful. I think a chocolate sauce made with this would be rather wicked! Mmmmm!

Some lovely stationery that really is very fine!
It almost feels wrong listing so many gifts when it's not even my birthday tee hee!

Tomorrow I open package number 7!

Feeling Special

A knock on the door on Tuesday morning brought a lovely package of specialness.
Thank you Philippa

It is now day 2 of the swap and I have a new book and yummy tea to enjoy.

There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea. ~Bernard-Paul Heroux
