Last week she told me she had sent the parcel (after nearly collapsing from shock at the postal charges!) so I was very excited when when I got back this morning to find a Parcel force note through the door telling me to go to the Post Office.
One HUGE box later!
And look what's inside!All the ingredients to make "S'mores" - I've never tried these, they sound fab and the recipe is on the back of the Cracker box.
I love the concept of Jet-Puffed marshmallows!
Purely in the interests of research I have tried a bit of everything!
Just testing them, honestly!
I haven't worked out what the Graham Crackers are like yet - need to try more obviously - but in taste they are like a sweeter Rich Tea biscuit but the texture is much more crumbly. I'll have to ask LSH what he thinks later - he is more of a biscuit connoisseur than me!
Anna also included some fabulous stickers (I can see the children trying to pinch some of these!)
I really love the quilt ones!
And even more exciting than all the sticky and edible things look what was in the bottom of the box!
I let him out of his quarantine casing but he didn't look very happy
So I went and found him a carrot
But I rather think he wants a s'more instead! Or at least some of the ingredients seeing as he has been sharing a box with them for the last week!
Better try out that recipe soon hadn't I?
Thank you so much for all these wonderful goodies Anna, I am so grateful and will plan a secret return parcel of some typically British treats soon!
Back to news of Jenny. Well after waiting in all day yesterday for her to be returned I finally gave in and rang the shop only to find they had no intention of bringing her to me at all, a misunderstanding they said. Hmmmmm.
I asked if they had solved the problem and they said it was the foot control (ignoring the fact that she runs on her own when the foot control is disconnected.) So I went back through to pick her up this morning. I asked about the "running by itself" business and was told "well it didn't do it." (Yes it does!) "not here it didn't" Double HMMMMMMMMMMMM.
I have since spoken to Janome about my problem and they have said it is entirely in the hands of the retailer. Not their problem basically. Treble HMMMMMMMMMMMM!
To improve my mood I went back to Ring a Rosie and bought some more wool! This time I had kidnapped Patti and made her come with me. We had a good time choosing yummy yarn and even managed to get some christmas shopping done for the little people.
This is my wool for trying to crochet.
(The end one is brown not black)
And these buttons are to go on a boring black cardigan (maybe - or they may just be to look at!)
And look! A fingerless mitt! So I have one warm hand and 10 very cold fingers!
