Today was another odd day. It was grey, misty, rainy and pretty dismal for most of the time, but for about half an hour this afternoon, the sun appeared on and off and we got a few glorious rays of sunshine. Oh the excitement! I had been waiting all day for it to brighten up a bit so that I could take some photographs, and here was my chance. I thought. That was before I couldn't find my camera. Panic! No. 3 son came to the rescue and located the camera for me, exactly where I had left it a couple of days ago when I took a few pics of our gorgeous granddaughter Grace. Hmm. No, its not a sign of getting old, just a sign of having been very poorly, so don't you get any ideas JJ, Sarah etc.
Here you are then, photos of the lovely goodies I received from Beki in the Pamper Swap organised by Michela -
The gorgeous Moroccan shower tonic is coming with me to France next week, as is the potpourri, which smells sooooooooo delicious. I will really appreciate the fabulous shower treat after a hard day's work digging a piece of the lower field to make a vegetable garden.
The tea, well, that ain't going anywhere, lol, I'll be drinking that right here, at the computer, and thinking of Beki every time I take a sip.
The goodies were accompanied by a lovely card, which looked good enough to eat, as you can see. Thank you Beki! I love my swap goodies. I must have a little think about some sort of swap soon, I do love swaps so much.
I also received a package from the lovely Deb from the Linens lace and lattes blog. She had a giveaway recently and I won not one but TWO gorgeous vintage aprons! How very generous is that!
Just look at this gorgeous one in perfect Spring colours -
And this one, in a sweet vintage flower print, so delicately trimmed with narrow ric rac -
And look, look, in the last photo, there is a tiny little spot of glorious sunshine! Didn't last long, lol, but it was there, for a fleeting moment.
AND, LAST BUT NOT LEAST, A BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR WELL WISHES! I CAN GO ALL MUSHY AND SOPPY NOW AND TELL YOU THAT I WAS REALLY TOUCHED. LOTS. OODLES. BIG HUG TO YOU ALL ( NOT AT THE SAME TIME, OBVIOUSLY, THAT WOULD BE ONE ENOOOOOOOOOOOORMOUS GROUP HUG, LOL. Hmm. Oh why the heck not, lets give it a go! )
Thats it for today. I have been doing a bit of crafting today, and I might show you the results tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your day, wherever you are. xx
