Such a moment of excitement when I spotted an envelope on the doormat with 'Air Mail' stamped on it. This means only one thing these days - the Dorky one. Random envelopes out of the blue are always good but when they come form the other side of the world just because someone saw something and thought of you well now that's something very special. In this instance a pack of Vintage Paper from the maker, Hobart.
The bonds and friendships we make through blogging should be treasured. Us folk who have seldom, if ever met, know things about each other, about our families, the cannot be compared to any other social situation I've experienced.
Lucy from Dear Beautiful is about to have her third baby. I recall when her second was born clearly, it seems like only yesterday. I remember when Otilia's second daughter was born, when Karin's son was born. We share some of the closest moments with each other although most of us are strangers. It's a beautiful thing.
Thank you to Ruth for sending something so perfectly suited to me that I did a little jig when I opened it. Kitty looked at the envelope and very matter of fact said 'You have a letter from Ruth'. Not that she has ever met Ruth, but she remembers that 'Ruth in Australia' once sent her a book of Outback Animals.
These are the moments in blogging that I love the most and to any other fellow 'blogging oldies' who are losing their mojo of late - this this this!
PS. If you are wondering 'Can you eat an acorn?' Apparently yes you can, so long as it's cooked. Thank you Google.
