Yes, I've been away. Haven't actually been anywhere but life has simply got in the way of blogging and web-ing recently. I've been ill and had lots of visitors, but Emilia is back to school today after the Easter break (and I am missing her immensely) so things are getting back to normal :)
Monsieur Le Post has just arrived (I know that is not the correct french for postman, but it always raised a laugh with Mrs Jabal-Ameli, my secondary school french teacher and it has stuck) with a humungously huge box of fantasmagorical delights for me and my girls! All the way from Norway no less, I'll do some sleuthing this evening whilst DH is at Pilates before I 'out' the wonderful Swimming Hedgehog.
So, what was in the box....
2 Bars of Reeces Nutrageous, YUM
A box of Reeces Pieces, YUM YUM
Yummy continental Milk Chocolate, YUM YUM YUM!
The most gorgeous hand cream I have ever tried - even better than the Clarins one I swear by!
A simply beautiful pair of earrings - did you make them yourself? I have tried and tried to get the hang of wire wrapping but just cannot do it.
2 packages for the girlies, Maddie kissed hers before opening it and was overjoyed with the stickers! Emilia will have hers when we get home from school.
A beautifully made pair of beaded wristwarmers, perfect for this weather. Maddie claimed one of the them, she likes to be the same as mummy :)
and then there was yarn!
3 balls of mulit coloured 4 ply cotton, adorable
3 balls of Alpaca boucle called FAERYTALE, how cool is that!
and 6, uh-huh that's 6 balls of Lana Grossa Brilla!
I am feeling so spoiled, and bad for being away from knitty for so long too.
Swimming Hegdehog, you have made me feel like a million dollars. I'm so priviledged to have had you as my SP.
Thank you xxx
My earrings, please excuse the bad photo and shadow!
