Especially when it is trash with a capital T!
Not only does this mad woman ring me up and make me snort my tea down the phone, she also sends fantastic parcels - of the birthday present and Raiders of the Box variety and I have been lucky enough to receive both in the last couple of weeks.
I'm going to apologise first though for the quality of my photos - there's something wrong with my camera and it keeps taking very dodgy shots but I'm not techno enough to work out what the problem is so you will have to just put up with it I'm afraid!
First up is the fabulous Raiders of the Box parcel - it actually arrived on my birthday and I was very excited thinking the HUGE parcel was going to be ALL FOR ME but then I realised what it was and got even more excited as I ripped it open to see what was inside!
It was full of lots of lovely goodies and these are the three I chose - some beautiful floral fabric, two pieces of the most amazingly embroidered linen and a flower crochet kit - the yarn is almost like string and I can't wait to have a play with it!
Not long after this excitement another Trashy parcel arrived - this time containing my birthday present - all wrapped up inside this beautiful tin
and look at all the amazing stuff inside!
Fab old buttons, fabrics, a gorgeous cupcake candle that I have to keep reminding the children not to eat, a heart balloon and a pretty flowery heart, a very funny card (and even funnier envelope!!!), a little doggy cushion and some brilliant Penguin pencils that I had been coveting!
But the thing that made me laugh out loud was this notepad
That's just sooooooooooooooooooooo me! I didn't realise it was a recognised condition! I had to ring Trashy immediately and I think I forgot to thank her for all the other lovely things because I was laughing so hard!!!
Trash - you are a complete star! Your Raiders of the Box swap is fantastic and my birthday goodies are just amazing - thank you so much!
And in wrist news, it's still hurting but apparently if I take ibuprofen for a week and rest then it may well get better!!! (isn't it great when one of your best friends is a GP?) It is still driving me crazy that I can't craft and I'm getting really sick of one handed typing (in fact I have cheated on this and used both but am going to stop very quickly!)
So I'm still struggling to reply to comments but I hope to back on top form soon but I'll leave you with a most depressing photograph
my sewing table after the massive weekend reorganisation - the really depressing thing is that even if I could move it all there is nowhere for everything to go! And to add insult to injury (literally) I had spent a whole day last week clearing it! Will I ever be able to do any sewing?
