Thank you (straw)berry much ;)

Good evening

What a week - its been hot & hectic here. Everyday something special to remember and somewhere special for someone to be.

Hasn't the weather been great - a bit hot to sleep properly in sometimes but that's what fans were invented for!!

The postie called yesterday with a parcel for me :) - it was my Strawberry Swap parcel from Jackie @ Sew Special Bears;

Inside

Inside that (yes I know I'm teasing)

Lots of strawberry loveliness - a mug, some napkins, fabric, a jelly, a gorgeous card and chocolates (well the box was strawberry red ;) ). Also in there were 2 items that need special pics of their own;
A knitting bag - something I've wanted for a while - I will now feel a proper knitter when I take it too S&B next week :)
Jackie had also included a very pretty strawberry covered tin;

and hiding inside that was this really sweet little mini album for memories of this summer - definitely something which I shall enjoy filling up;

Thank you Jackie so much for my lovely pressies and for Pixiedust @ Faerie Nuff for organising this lovely swap.

I ventured into the garden this morning to pick some strawberries to put together with the jelly as a pudding for tonight - sadly just after this photo was taken a big monster came in and ate the strawberries thus depriving the children of a pudding tonight - heyho I'll try again tomorrow (he's out all day!!);


See you soon - lots to show you.

What a sweet strawberry post! My tortoise, Jacob, loves his strawberries so I don't get a look in.

What a lovely collection of presents and what a lot of trouble your partner went to. Of course you completely deserve it!

As for that big monster! Goodness nothing is safe in your house is it?! Better luck tomorrow Vicki.
