the sweetest thing
i love *snail mail*. sure, the instantness of email and blogging and chatting online is a buzz, but nothing beats a *surprise* delivery that i can touch, and sniff, and admire, and perhaps even taste. over the last couple of months Some Very Special Things have arrived for moi. there were some delish handmade soaps from liesl, and a collection of gorgeous photos from emily, both of which i had swapped for butterfly kisses bracelets.
lizard sent me this beautiful print she's made
which sparked the Original Swap back in april!
after a wee chat this week over at sharon's,
rach knitted me this domestiKATEd (love your sense of humour rach) *Not So Nana* dishcloth, to woo me to The Other Side.
and two days after my meltdown on tuesday, there was a knock at the door. S10 (who answers every phone call and every knock at the door because no one else moves that fast) was greeted by a special *surprise* delivery, all wrapped in gold ribbons. i burst into tears when i looked in the card and read this:
and the cake was decadently delish too.
seriously rosie, you've *got* to start blogging and then i can leave you little sparkly *thank you* Virtual Messages forever after.
but wait, there's more...
today another *surprise* arrived from my kitchen muse, leighleigh.
yep, it's the cranberry and chocolate cookies.
mmmmm, my tummy feels *so* loved.
i've got a little sticky note on my fridge which says,
Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another.
(George Eliot, who was actually a woman, lol)
it's true. love makes the world go around.
thank you, thank you, thank you, gorgeous girls X
