Beautifully wrapped...





Mr P forgot that he had saved lots of post for me while I was away, one of them was a most exciting package from Daphne filled to the brim with treasures and treats of every kind. As you can see, I had to photograph the packaging before even opening them, the entire box of goodies was exquisitely wrapped with a huge variety of hand stamped papers, all of which will be kept, many of which will be framed or used in collages in the future. Poor Mr P was on the phone when I opend the box and had to try and hear over the sound of increasingly high pitched gasps and ooh's. Daphne knows exactly the kind of things that put a huge smile on my face - thank you madam!

I forgot to update on a few things. The trellis is back, and without neighbourly wars. There's a new fence in Mr P's garden replacing the one the gales smashed. The first lambs were born in the nearby farm at the weekend... and today they were skipping in the surprise sunshine, with daffodils smiling nearby. And lastly, I have reduced the migraine to a general tension headache by chopping off 1/3 of my hair! Sounds extreme but I hadn't cut it in months and it was down at my bum again.

You are most welcome Milady! Always nice to hear one's efforts are 'ooh' inducing!
I hope the liquorice wasn't 'bleurgh' inducing...:)

The package looks great from outside and I belive, that inside it was much more interesting. It is nice to get letters and packages, isn´t it much better than emails? Sometimes I really miss it.
Sounds like a lot of new things around you...
Good recipe how to reduce migraine - I will tell it to my daughter :-))
