giving and receiving...

Today was a lovely mail day - the postman, (his name is Ivan) brought me a lovely parcel from Sally, who is one of my flickr contacts. We decided to do a swap which was really fun as I've never done a swap before.

I was super excited to get some of Sally's chillies - yay!

This really cheered me up today, there's nothing like lovely snail mail - thank you Sally!

so lovely, I love wrapping gifts beautifully myself it makes the oenig so much more special. Love the vintage card. And snail mail you just can't beat it can you. We were in Milton Keynes at Christmas time and it was dark at 4pm so unlike Australia in December, But we loved England and we came back again in April so different this time light till 8pm or so you have a beautiful country.
