As I shared in my last post, I was involved in a’ Jar of Love’ swap and my partner was Amanda and I showed you what I crammed into her jar.
On Friday I was eating my breakfast (porridge) and the post man arrived, I was so excited I jumped up and grabbed my parcel, grabbed my camera and started to undo it. I then heard a funny licking noise……………my cat decided it was an oportunity not to be missed and was helping herself to my porridge….bad kitty!!!
BUT look what I received 🙂
And inside the bag was this little (big) beauty
Crochet cotton and hook (oh yeh!) – A mug cosy and a little mat that is backed to put my mug on. I have been meaning to make myself a mug cosy, now I don’t have to – A little packet of felt flowers on tiny clothes pegs and some 4 leaf clovers with tiny lady bugs on them, too cute! – safety eyes for hand-made toys – brooch backings – fridge magnets – two little stampers – a strip of embroidery material to embroider and sew onto the edge of something and it has gold around the edge too – my own little Spaniard serenading me with his guitar – beautiful natural Raspberry soap that smells delicious – a Matryoshka doll on a chain, she has flowers on her dress – peas in a pod which my granddaughter would love (but I love it too) a flower clip for my granddaughter to wear in her hair and last but not least a beautiful little china doll, she is tiny and someone has knitted the tiniest little shoes and bonnet. I will have to take a photo of her up close before I hand her over to my granddaughter too.
Isn’t everything lovely, I was like a kid at Christmas ooohing and arrrhing over everything.
Thank you Amanda I just love everything that came across the pond to me.
Amanda has also awarded me the ‘Lovely’ blog award which I will blog about next time with the little doll. Time is tight for me at the moment, am still on nights and days until after next Saturday, I don’t have any spare time at night at the moment and even my days off are full to the brim (stop world I want to get off for a while)
Last night (Saturday) I went out for dinner and a show, saw my friend’s daughter (one of my brunch girls daughter) playing the part of Magenta in the Rocky Horror show, she was fantastic I must say.
My daughter auditioned to dance at Moulin Rouge (yes in Paris) yesterday however she didn’t get in even tho they loved her and told her she was a beautiful dancer etc. she was at least 5cm too short, they like them to be 175cm min, she had fun and wasn’t disheartened. She danced on Friday night at our casino in the city in a Kylie Minogue Tribute show, went with me last night then drove into the city to catch up with a close friend for her birthday…………..she is still asleep today and it is nearly 3pm. Wish I was too, but my mum and dad are due any min now. I have been food shopping, cleaned the bathrooms and kitchen, hoovered and sat with coffee and wrote up this post today, yesterday I worked and did washing and ironing and part of the housework then had to get ready to go out, I am going to grab my crochet and put my feet up whilst mum and dad are here, I feel like I haven’t had any time for myself at the moment and I get a little ‘cranky’ if I don’t have some precious ‘me’ time.
On that note, I shall say toodle pip, hope you are all enjoying the games, I haven’t had a chance to see any of it yet.
Have a great week and will see you all soon (we are getting closer to Spring, can’t tell you how happy this makes me feel)
Much love to you all xoxo
Thank you Ella for dropping in x
