We got back yesterday evening to find the farm still standing, the animals well fed and happy, and the chicken house completely spring-cleaned.A beautifully handmade pouch with Denises' label inside. And finally some gorgeous photo-cards by Denise herself, I don't think I'll be able to send them to anyone though, they are going on my inspirations noticeboard. # What a wonderful thing to come back to. # And now I have to 'Pay in Forward' to three PIF volunteers.........if you would like to take part in this all you have to do is leave me a comment saying so. If there are more than three comments I will do a little draw to choose just three. And all you have to do after you receive your parcel from me is to Pay it Forward to three more people. # I will send off my parcels as soon as I have had time to have a peek at your Blogs to try and see what I think you would like. The things from Denise's PIF can be either handmade or vintage or bought especially for the person. So you don't have to be a whizz kid on the sewing machine to join in. #
We must go away more often.
Mum and Dad have looked after everything magnificently - THANK YOU.
They said they enjoyed the break and I truly hope they meant it. They seem to have done an awful amount of farmwork and housework for people 'enjoying a break', I only hope they are not too tired as they are coming back in a couple of weeks while we nip off to Devon for a mini-break for my birthday.
We got back to a little pile of post, and in amongst all the bills and circulars was a little parcel addressed to me.........something I had completely forgotten about. Back in January I volunteered for a 'Pay in Forward' with Denise from A Bun Can Dance. She has put together a lovely parcel just for me with all these gorgeous things.
A gorgeous handmade bunting banner, with 'Pigs in Clover' written on some of the flags, each flag is different and lovingly handmade. The thought that has gone into this is amazing and it looks beautiful, something I will treasure forever. (There is a closer picture at the top of the post, although the pictures don't do it justice.)
What a lovely way to brighten someones day. # Back to farming talk tomorrow, and thanks again to my lovely parents for all their help. # Sue xx
