My postman tends to wear a very wary expression when he has to knock my door.
Could it be that he is not used to very grinny overexcited females bounding to the door to wrench the post from him?
He wore such an expression this morning - and with good reason for he was bringing me a parcel of fabric gorgeousness that I ordered from down shadow lane recently -using pretend money in my paypal account after selling a few things in my etsy shop :)
As if that wasn't enough excitement for one day, a big red Parcel Force van pulled up a short time later and another poor man was subjected to my overenthusiastic greeting!
A little while back my very lovely blog friend Leigh and my surrogate Mum (Leigh's Mum) asked me when my birthday was as they wanted to send me something - how lovely are they?!!
Not being a very patient sort of person I opened the (rather huge!) box immediately and became somewhat overwhelmed with the gorgeousness enclosed.
All the way from the USA!!!
I'm sure I admired a bird house like this on Leigh's blog - it is so beautiful!
The parcel also contained some seriously gorgeous stationery and another wrapped parcel that I am going to save for my birthday next week - if I can resist opening it before!!
For now the bird house has found a home among the 'Easter display' but once this comes down it will take pride of place :)
Thank you so very much Leigh and Mum - you have made me so happy and I feel thoroughly spoilt! You are so lovely - but then we know that bloggers are the best don't we?!!
All the excitement made me forget that the children are going to their swimming lesson tonight and it is their swimming instructor's last class, as she's leaving to go to a paid job with less unsociable hours. She has been teaching them patiently for nearly three years and has taught both of my children to swim really well.
I was making something today for a PIF that I have to do but this has now had to be diverted as a 'Sorry You're Leaving but Thank You For Everything' present!!
I have to go now as, for some reason, my children have turned quite vile today and are arguing over nothing - so the big bad referee is required - wish me luck!!!
