I heart packages

Yesterday another package arrived from my Secret Pal in London—how exciting!

brown paper package...

When I tore off the brown paper and bubble wrap, I discovered it was a crocodile.

and a panda.

He was quite a friendly crocodile, and obligingly opened his mouth so I could see all the treats that were inside for me.

marzipan, notepaper, serviettes

There was some tasty Hungarian marzipan covered in dark chocolate, with a kitty in a yarn bag on the front. Kitty! There was some adorable star-patterned notepaper, and a stack of wee cupcake serviettes, which I already have plans for.

socks, bandaids, notecards

There was also a pair of sweet panda socks, whose panda face peeked out of my flats today and made me smile whenever I saw it. The small writing on the tag said they were ‘just for the swell girl’ which sounds strange and sweet—my favourite kind of Engrish. There were some bandaids with colourful hearts on them, and I know all that love will make my scraped finger better. And there was a set of lovely lilac notecards and envelopes, monogrammed with my initials! That personal touch gave me a bit of a thrill, I’m not too proud to admit :)

flutterby, goldfish spoons, bookmark, cake tape, knitting giftcards

And then there was a funny surprise flutterby which will be gracing the birthday card of someone special soon. And some measuring spoons shaped like goldfish! No more guessing what a quarter teaspoon of vanilla looks like! And a measuring tape bookmark. And the cutest sticky tape in the world—it has cakes on it! And a very handy stack of cards to slip in with knitted gifts.


And to top it all off, two wonderful knitting magazines I’ve been idly thinking of looking at, and a booklet of toy knitting patterns.

What a fantastic package, Secret Pal! Everything made me squeal with pleasure. I am the luckiest girl in the world!
