This weekend I am using as a breathing space. Wild wet weather outside is certainly helping.
I mentally blocked off all 'things to do' and had a really lazy start to my day. I did try (briefly) unsuccessfully do some housework but soon gave that up.
There was a bit of a grump going on, triggered by a combination of lanky teenagers and social media problems (our cell phone mast is not working). Fortunately that calmed down when the boys resorted to watching Mongol - the Rise of Genghis Khan - perfect for this day of 'hibernation'.
I have been lucky with this blogging lark to have made some lovely kind and generous bloggy-friends. One of them - Susan from Granny Smith's Quilting and I have a shared love for the Yorkshire Dales. Her knowledge of the area and her holidays there made me think, that despite her coming from Australia, she was originally a Yorkshire lass born and bred. It turns out she is as 'foreign' as I and we both hail from the colonies!
Any hoo, where this waffle's leading to, is on Friday, when I came home I found a parcel waiting for me - look....
Ooh - 'foreign' labels!
Inside was a parcel in the prettiest' paper - I love the song bird
Something beautifully made.
I love love the fabric!
But this was not the only surprise...
Tucked inside was a gift box
and a very appropriate card
Thank you Susan - very generous and knowing how busy you are,
thank you for making such a beautiful table runner.
Thank you xxxx
PS - the house is just mine - Himself and Eldest have gone walking, with the go-pro, off to our local waterfall and Youngest has gone out with a friend for the afternoon - so I have a cat, a mug of tea, my laptop and some 'me time' bliss xx
