Goodies from Bea
When I did my last post, I forgot to put on the wonderful parcel I received from Bea, some time ago now. We'd moved things round so many times I've only just re-discovered it. I received it just before I went to Spain.
I can't remember what I did to deserve this super pack of goodies, but I think it was a give-away! Whatever it was, I was thrilled with all the contents:
I particularly loved the little box with the picture on the top and that wonderful piece of black netty kind of material! Jim saw that and said, 'it's strange what some people get excited about!'.
Look at those fantastic serviettes.
And this cute little basket. I bet Kitty and Poppy would like to play with that when they visit.
On the right, some super stencils and at the top, lots of pretty paper and 2 lace doilies, one is heart shaped.
And finally, a very pretty fabric ATC. This has gone in the bottom of my alphabet ACT wall hanger as there were 30 pockets and of course only 26 had been filled. I have also put 2 in from The Weaver of Grass and one from Stampmaiden (Linda).
Bea had previously sent me a fabric postcard, posted on its own, like a proper postcard. It was not dirty or spoiled at all from going through the post all the way from the USA to Ireland!
Jim's UK Trip
Jim stayed with his daughter Jenny in our UK house in Worthing. Jenny is married to Matt and their son, Sonny is now almost 4 months old. It's hard to believe how quickly the time goes! Of course Jim took lots of photos and I'll pick a few for you.
Sonny now. How cute is his face? He was actually quite poorly when Jim was there with a nasty cold and that made his tummy bad too. But he managed the odd smile here and there.
Sonny and him Mummy.
Sonny trying his best to smile.
Jim's older daughter Ali's daughter Poppy will be 1 on 1st December. Now that really is amazing! Jim, Jenny, Matt and Sonny went visiting.
Poppy and Sonny. Of course Poppy thinks Sonny is a lovely toy to play with.
Poppy, almost walking now.
Poppy and Grandad Jim.
Daddy Matt feeding Sonny - you can see who Sonny looks like!
They held a party for Poppy, a few days early, but she didn't know!! She was as good as gold and loved her presents. We bought her one of those 'touch feely' books and she knew which parts to feel. It was called 'That's not My Snowman'. We're also buying shares in a car seat for her.
Present opening time with Daddy Joe, Poppy, Jenny at the back and Ali.
Jim's son Russell and his wife Caz also came. Poppy looks a bit bemused by all the action.
Cake Time. Sonny had had enough!
Poppy had a wonderful time with her chocolate cake and after a while Ali put her in the high chair as she got messier and messier!
A great time was had by all. I'm sorry I missed it but maybe next year. It was lovely for Jim to have all his family together.
I'm still making Christmas cards so I haven't too much time for blogging. Happy Monday everyone.
