i've had myself a bit of the post-holiday blues

...our travel pals went home
i had to go back to work
avoiding the never-ending laundry pile
having to think about what to make for dinner
missing my siestas...

but along come things to make it all better

reason #1

marta is organising another swap
i'm signing up today

the last one was such fun to put together
i had a super-sweet swap-partner from across the pond
+ this time round the theme is right up my street
(yes i'm the girl who loved to get her pencil case restocked for the new term!)

reason #2

my lovely friend lynn sent me a suprise parcel
which landed on my doorstep
a customised cardigan wrapped in cute tissue
i can't tell you how much i love the colour
(so me!)
i feel incredibly touched that someone would
just think of me + make me something
(all that thought from a person i haven't actually met in the real world)

special thanks to you again lynn for making my day!

reason #3

on friday i'm off to my mum's house in norfolk
where we're going to be interviewed for a local magazine
about our acorn of a business venture
a very exciting prospect as it may lead to

much dreamt about commissions
+ who knows where?!

I am keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well with the magazine interview.
I'm delighted you love the cardigan - I'm glad it's gone to a good home:)

I am excited about the swap also, it will be my first. That cardigan is such a lovely colour!

Stella said...

I have 'modelled' that cardi and it is lovely and I am sure will suit you very well. Good luck with the business venture:)
