Being spoilt!

I am having a great week as parcels seem to be arriving thick and fast!!!

The first one to arrive was from Jo in Tas - she had a giveaway to mark her 100th post and her blogoversary and i won, whooppee!!!! She well and truly spoilt me -

that lovely button necklace looks lovely on! and i have read the magazine from cover to cover whilst sat in front of a roaring fire with a big glass of wine!

Then i had another parcel arrive today from WMK -

more brilliant mags to look thro and get ideas from - how lucky am i! this was a swap as she was desperate for a new mag called 'the knitter' - i had seen it in Smiths so i sent it on to her.

and lastly, but by no means least, was a belated christmas/birthday pressie from Trashy

she has knitted me this gorgeous neckwarmer in my favorite colours and just look at that lovely fabric - cupcakes!! yay!

I had a couple of other parcels, very naughty of me, from amazon - just couldn't help myself but have decided it stops now. I did buy this book which made my hubby roar with laughter

phrases like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted, kept coming from him! I did take his point but actually its not a bad read and does have some helpful tips!

It did have one bit which might make you smile - there is a chapter titled crafts - some of the comments were - crafts are hot - crafts are the best fun - crafts make brilliant presents -, well, who knew!!!!! maybe i should show that to some people i know who look down their noses at anything handmade!!! So, there you are girls - we are 'in'! but you all knew that already!!

well both Molly and Lilly have had enough of me blogging! they are both sitting looking very bored!

so i had better get a move on and take them for a walk - as it seems to be getting colder again i will be wearing my lovely new neckwarmer, Trashy!

It happens like that doesn't it? Nothing for ages, and then three parcels all arrive at once.

So glad you got some fabulous goodies to enjoy.

I like the sound of the roaring fire. It's blinkin' cold in my parts. (So to speak). x
