I was having just a so-so day today. There was a painter here doing some touch-up work (and will have to come again tomorrow...sigh) and I was busy making some stupid mistakes on some projects in my studio. Then I walked to the mailbox and the clouds parted, the woodland critters frolicked, and I thought I heard the angels sing!
In the mailbox was a parcel wrapped in brown waxy paper, dotted with pink polka-dots (some decorated as snails or smiley faces) bearing postage from the Royal Mail. Royal Mail! Can you believe it? Not the usual Royal Pain in the *ss mail.
I got some great goodies from the world famous Marmite Toasty. Just looky!
It doesn't even all fit in the photo!
I so love the chocolate theme of this gift! What we have here is a calculator in the shape (and smell) of a chocolate bar!!
A knitted chocolate bar for emergencies! Marmy, did you knit this yourself?? Great!
A liquified Cadbury bar, which is regaining it's composure and turgidity (that's a word, right?) in the fridge until I can't stand it anymore and go bite it! Oh, and everything was wrapped in neat brown tissue printed with dragonflies!
Some cool postcards from the villages surrounding hers, as well as a local newspaper. I will have to read that carefully to find the police blotter noting all the high-jinx Marmy has been up to. Not pictured is a cute little keychain of a man with floppy legs and a British flag on his chest.
Thank you so much Marmy! This really perked me up!! And will continue to do so as soon as I eat that candy bar!
Everyone should run on over to Marmy's blog for her Marmite goodies giveaway! If you fancy a jar of something that tastes like toe jam, plus other edibles (?) with the same flavor (?) go there and enter to win!!
Also up today is the first basket of green beans from the garden!
And to end this post, a few gratuitous photos of me working the tractor yesterday.
Coming out of the woods after mowing.
Have a good night!
