Well two posts in the one week....wonders will never cease...
My last post got a bit long so saved the best for now. I want to share some lovely things I received for xmas.
When I opened a parcel from DIL and eldest son, inside were a collection of beautifully wrapped parcels. On xmas morning I opened the first parcel and was so surprised to find this lovely silver bracelet. It is the first bracelet I have ever owned as an adult, although I believe I had a gold one similar to this when I was a baby.
The second parcel was this gorgeous cup and saucer, but don't you just love the box it came in.
As I opened the rest of the parcels, I discovered this array of lotions and potions. Some were the ideal size for travelling, which will lighten the load of my make up bag.
I also received some money, and with this I purchased this outdoor setting for my patio.As you can see, I get quite a lot of leaves on my patio from a huge gum tree out the back
These are leaves we swept off the patio (just returning them to the council who wont do anything about the tree)
So with the money left over from the patio setting I went out and bought this monster. It came in a box and I was even able to successfully put it together. I used it this morning, and I looooove it to bits. Did not take long, is light as a feather to use, and I was not out of breath and exhausted like when I sweep the damn leaves. It is a blower vac, but the thing that threw me was attaching the vac bag. I just did not have big enough hands to push the bag into the hole for it.
I am feeling very pleased with myself and feeling very clever.
