The postman has had a busy week with the amount of cards and parcels that have dropped though my door. Technically not accurate as we haven't got a letterbox. We do have a mail box but the postman leaves our mail on the chair in the porch. A big thank you to all of those who have sent me little parcels, you know who you are and want to remain anonymous. I have also had some amazing ecards, they are spectacular. I have one blogging friend sending me one every day which is so much fun. I have also had a advent calendar which again gives us so much pleasure. The generosity of people this time of year never ceases to amaze.
One parcel that arrived earlier in the week was one that I was able to open and sent for use on my trip. It consisted of a large bag of Marionberry Hazelnuts, they are delicious and 2 bars of Cranberry Almond with Macadamia Nuts bars which we have packed into our travel bags for a snack on the way. It will be fun thinking of you Becky when we chomp our way through those delights. She knows me so well and added a beautiful bag using some stunning fabric and sewing machine buttons.
The inside was lined with sewing needles. The parcel also contained a towel and 2 lip balms.
Tea bags was the icing on the cake, a selection for me to try.
I am one very lucky lady.
We spent the afternoon at a fund raising event which was so much fun. An afternoon tea was included in the entrance price which we enjoyed. There was a couple of games, guess how many sweets in the jar and guess the weight of the plum duff/clootie. I guessed right and won the enormous fruit pudding.
I cut a slice off the end so that you can see the inside, it is delicious. It weighed in at 4lb 5ozs.
Friends we were sitting with won a couple of raffle prizes which added to the fun. A lovely afternoon. I am just finishing off some head wear in readiness for the Church Nativity and then we are going to sit and relax in front of a Christmas film. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
See you soon.
