As if yesterday's gorgeous parcel from Kaz was not enough the postman came up trumps again today!!
Again I forgot to give the sender my actual surname (doh!) and I think it's fab that the postman had to deliver a parcel addressed to Mrs Moogsmum :)
I was expecting this one as the lovely Jo at French Knots emailed me last week to tell me that a Pay It Forward that she had blogged in October was on it's way to me.
Jo apologised for the delay which really was not a problem as I had forgotten that I'd actually signed up!!
I feel like the luckiest blogger in the world this week!!
Isn't this the prettiest peg bag? I shall have to wear a pinny to hang my washing out now :) Look at those fab pegs too - I want to hang my whitest whites out with those ones! I bet you're thinking 'that chocolate can't have lasted long' - you may be surprised.
It's a very timely gift as I overheard two ladies chatting about being able to hang their washing out in the sunshine yesterday. I was feeling quietly envious as I can't put anything out there right now with all the muck that the reroof is generating.
I'll photograph the first load I put out as I know you'll enjoy that bit of domestic loveliness!!
My lovely new peg bag is a definite improvement on this. I'm going to treat myself to some new wooden pegs too :)
The card that Jo enclosed is now adorning my fridge as I just love it!!!
Thank you so much Jo - I am absolutely delighted with my goodies!!
So now it's my turn to Pay It Forward. I will send a little handmade gift to the first three people to comment on this post. It may not be straight away, it may be a month or two but you will receive a little something lovely and of course you will then need to Pay It Forward on your blog.
For those of you in the Blogland Women's Army who have been steeling yourselves for giving Moogsdad a good prodding for keeping me off the internets I am pleased to announce that a solution has been found - and a very comfortable one too!
Now I really am pleased I bought my company laptop when I finished work :) (When offered the chance to buy my 1 year old laptop plus free printer/copier/fax/scanner machine thingy at a fraction of it's original cost I did so as I thought it would be ideal for the children to use in future for homework etc.)
Here's a tip though. Do not place your delicious bar of whole milk goodness next to the fan outlet of your laptop. It will melt.
That is why the chocolate has not been eaten - yet! It's in the fridge recovering. Having said that now that I've reminded myself about it it won't be there for long!!!
Before I go to lurk around on everyone else's blogs I have a job to do for Trashalou - she has tagged me for seven things of interest. I suppose it should be about me but the children discovered this hidden on the bookshelf not half an hour ago:
So here's a treat.....instead of facts about me, 'cause hey, what don't you know already?!, I will find seven fascinating facts from this weighty tome.
Fascinating fact No.1: Twenty percent of all road accidents in Sweden involve a moose!
Fascinating fact No.2: In the average lifetime a person will breathe in nearly 20kg (44lb) of dust! - unless they live here, in which case double it!!
Fascinating fact No.3: Gnosiophobia is the fear of knowledge!
Fascinating fact No.4: Geniophobia is the fear of chins! Good job I don't have that seeing as I have two of them!!!
Fascinating fact No.5 : Turkeys often look up at the sky during a rainstorm. Unfortunately, some have drowned as a result! ( I didn't make that last bit up - IT'S IN THE BOOK!!!!)
Fascinating fact No.6: (FOR MONKEE MAKER!) - a monkey was made a corporal in the South African army during World War II!!!!!!!!! :)
Fascinating fact No.7: Statistically you are more likely to be attacked by a cow than a shark!!
I do hope you enjoyed them - I have a creeping dread that I may have found myself something new with which to entertain myself. Tomorrow I may post 7 tips from my Book Of Household Hints and Tips, or 7 ideas from Things To Do Now You're 40 - or I may post 7 knots from the Book of Knots and Knot Tying.
You'll just have to come back to find out, won't you? :)
Night night xxx
p.s. accidentally ate the chocolate whilst writing this as DH has taken kids to swimming lesson!!! It was lovely :)
p.p.s. in case you are, for some unearthly reason, visiting this post for a second time I have just edited this several hours after first posting - on this occasion you are not, in fact, going mad ;-)
