What a lovely surprise I had this morning, my vintage housekeeping swap package arrived, prettily tied up with blue ribbons. A big thank you to Samantha (mrspao.blogspot.com) and also to Ms Robyn for arranging this swap for us all.
Samantha, I love the items you sent, how cleaver of you to spot my interests and indulge me accordingly.
Not only do I love old books, but I’m passionate about gardening (well that is next to my dear husband of course), so the vintage gardening book is an excellent choice. The gardening gloves are perfect too! and are beautifully colour co-ordinated with the book cover I thought. They are just what I need. Truly, over the weekend, I’d mentioned to John that I must get myself a new pair, I had holes in the fingers of my old ones, so I’m thrilled! And, what more could a girl ask for after a spot of gardening, than to indulge herself in a deep relaxing bath scented with rose petal bath milk. The card you made, is lovely too, and yes, a good likeness to George. I do thank you!
I’m in the process of packing up my swap to you in return, it will be winging its way to Canterbury before the week is out. Many thanks dear swap partner.
Reflection Through The Seasons
I live in a small Welsh village which is situated in the southern tip of the Snowdonia National Park. Its an area of true outstanding natural beauty. We have the Cambrian mountains to the east of us and the coast of Cardigan Bay out to the west. My husband and I moved to Wales from The Cotswolds in England 19 years ago. We bought the old village Police Station, which we have worked tirelessly renovating ever since. You could say its a real labour of love. I have retired after working many years in the travel business, this now leaves me free to pursue the many things in life that I enjoy.
