I only rarely buy new books but free, when stuck at home, it was a no-brainer.
3 arrived and the fourth is yet to be published and there is still £19 to spend!
Yesterday was the day I was allowed to open them as I reached half way between 60 and 70.........blimey, how did that happen? And of course it was youngest grand-daughters birthday too, she was 2 - I still think that Son and DiL were so clever arranging her arrival on my birthday!
There were other presents and cards too and letters from my cousin and penfriends, a phone call from Big W.I, A whats-app call with Birthday Girl Willow and lots of good wishes from friends and family, and a parcel from Eldest Daughter arrived on the right day, unfortunately she'd posted it 9 days ago and it had some cheese in it! If only it hadn't been Easter in between and the post less busy it might have got here in good condition as it was wrapped with an ice pack and lots of newspaper. It was only after she'd posted it that she realised it probably wasn't a good idea! The cheese looked very sweaty! But the biscuits and chocs that came with the cheese will be very tasty. 😊
I've stood the cards on the window sill.........until Polly tries to leap on there to do some bird-watching and knocks them over!
They all so pretty, how lucky I am.
I have a plan for another present as there will be no birthday outing and no more diesel needed. I'm quite used to buying myself a birthday present. Col was a wonderful husband and dad but if birthdays and Christmas had been left to him no-one would have got anything!
