Last week was very very busy with lots of new things happening which I will write all about soon. I have lots of letters to reply to and I am being kinder to myself about how long it has taken me to reply to them, in fact kinder to myself in general about lots of things I haven't done or started yet. I was feeling bad about not replying quickly, not emailing back quickly, not writing on here enough, so many things but I am stopping all that and I am just going to channel David Byrne when he sings one of my favourite songs 'Oh, I'm dressed up so nice,and I'm doing my best'
I received a big full parcel of treats from Jamie and I am now addicted to Swedish Fish sweets. I made them last a whole week as I never wanted them to end. I even taped the top tight shut so they wouldn't go bad. Please send more fish! I also received in my parcel my first ever pennant which is a beauty. I have always wanted one and now I have my very own.
I received this lovely box of trinkets from Sarah and some Werthers Original which I ate for strength. Also an engraving kit which I once wrote to Father Christmas about. I now have my very own puppy and kitten copper foil edition.
A parcel of triffic from Karen arrived with a very pleasing book, a screen wiper with a cat on and a lovely pair of legs that Karen found. We both like to find things out and about and these are some very special legs. They are now in the found toy legs jar. I have a jar for everything.
Feathers, which I think are from ginger Margaret. Thank you Margaret.
I have never seen anything like this kitty cross stitch with a beautiful pink and blue kitty on the front. It is now on my wall and I might even frame it special.
Outgoing to Isla. As I am typing 'outgoing' I am already starting to feel terrible again about my lateness but I must channel my inner David Byrne and his massive suit. Did I ever tell you I shook his hand once? (I might have grabbed it)
