Prezzies Through the Post


Since we've cut right back on our spending during our year of 'Living Without' the postman hasn't called very often.  What he has brought has been bills, circulars, the odd building control certificate of compliance and well, lots of really boring stuff .... except for the occasional highlights of the Radio Times and other magazines bought on subscription last year.  There have been no exciting Amazon parcels with books for me, no surprise deliveries of things that Lovely Hubby has ordered from Ebay or Amazon and forgotten to tell me about.

So when he knocked yesterday and the dogs did their customary bark for all your worth and run from door to door to try and get to the intruder with the red jacket before Mum does thing I was pretty surprised.  And look what he had that wouldn't fit through the letterbox!!

 A regular reader and blogging buddy Veronique sent me a lovely present, well assortment of presents actually, all packaged in the snazziest of padded envelopes.


She's been having a good sort out and declutter during an enforced period of time off work after what sounds like a very scary and traumatic accident and the problems resulting from it.  And even though she's been so poorly herself she thought of me, how lovely is that :-)

She wrote me a nice chatty letter and enclosed some of my favourite toiletries, a how clever of her to remember that these are my absolute all time favourites, and one of the few perfumed products that my sensitive skin can cope with.   There was also a nice padded mat so I can put all my preserves on the worktop with their damp bases after bottling, and a book that looks like it should make for an excellent read.  I have heard of it but do not have it in my, ahem ... rather large book collection.


Lovely gifts, but what is even more important to me a lovely thought from a long time reader that I have considered as a real blogging buddy for quite a while.

I do hope you are feeling much better now Veronique and THANK YOU for your lovely gifts.


And Suky says 'hello' to Isabelle.

  12. Gorgeous presents - it's so lovely when something unexpected arrives, isn't it? When it's not for Christmas, an anniversary or a birthday.
