It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas- with surprise packages, full to the brim, not least with love and thoughtfulness.

Last week posty rang our bell and handed us over an unexpected package. It was, literally, bursting at the seams. Excitedly we brought it in and RIch was like a child pulling at it trying to open it, it literally, burst open and this is what we found:



A bobble hat, glittery scarf, fingerless gloves (wonderful!), soft, ballerina slippers, pink boot slippers (which I am saving for Christmas day) all for me. For Rich there was a hat, gloves, scarf, and pants. There were two dog toys, and cat toys and, yes randomly, a pound of cheese!!! Hidden amongst everything else. (The cat was not included!!) All from Rich’s mum, with a note saying she couldn’t fit the sweets in!!

For or me it is these thoughtful things that mean so much, and we are truly grateful. So on Christmas day picture us, me sitting in front of the fire, wearing my boot slippers, bobble hat, scarf, and fingerless gloves, and Rich wearing his scarf, hat, gloves and sitting in  is pants (now there is a thought!) and of course, we will both be eating cheese!!

A quick update on Hammy – Hammy went to the dentist today –  the teeth are no more!! He was a brave boy.

The renovation of the bedroom is ongoing, more posts are on their way……..
