Yesterday, when I was up in my attic office, I heard a weightly 'thunk' as the postman delivered the mail. I skipped down the stairs (or, more likely, lumbered) and there on the mat was a boring-looking letter and an interesting-looking parcel. I picked up the parcel and gave it a squeeze while carrying it through to the kitchen - something soft and something hard in the same envelope. What had I bought from eBay that would match such a description? Nothing that I could remember. What had we left behind at Grandma & Grandad's the last time we visited? Nothing; and the writing wasn't Grandma's anyway. Who was a bit late remembering DC's birthday? Well, I'll mention no names, but suffice to say it wasn't from them either, and so DC's birthday remains forgotten by some.
So, I excitedly opened the envelope and found these lovely little packages, neatly wrapped, along with a postcard of the Norfolk Broads - and that's when it clicked - this was my giveaway prize!
I hurriedly tore into the wrapping paper and found not just the two books that Jay had mentioned in her giveaway post, but also some fabulous-smelling lavender (which my Mum pounced on when she came round later in the afternoon, so I may let her have some, if I'm feeling like a kind and generous daughter) and some matching napkins.
Thank you so much, Jay, for your very generous giveaway.
Don't foget, I also have a giveaway at the moment - I think I'll pull the names from the hat over the weekend, so you still have time to comment/guess the number of books I've read - it's a couple of posts ago, so have a look!
