Pink Packages.....

The 'jingle jangle' of the letterbox this morning
brought with it great excitment, and also a
pink package!

'How perfectly pink and scrummy' Claire exclaims!
2 inquisitive little boys try to be 'not so interested' at the pinkness and girlie delivery!

'Yey!' I silently squeal.
Knowing what delights are contained inside.

One boy is now brandishing the kitchen scissors
 a little too close to my ear at this point,

'Open it!'
 'Cut it open!'
 'Let's see what it is!'

Are all ignored as I stroke the lovely pink bag.
Sooooo cute, compared to a common or garden brown jiffy bag I think.

I don't get much through the post.  You can probably guess.
I want the moment to last longer, even though I know exactly what is inside!

'I have to take a photo before I open it.' is greeted by
looks of confusion and possible thoughts of
'Mum's finally lost it!'

We gentle snip open the end of the bag...

Out spill not one,
but TWO cutie little pincushions!!!

I was the lucky winner of Katy's giveaway!

A few emails of chat (and banter) followed her announcment,
and Katy kindly donated another one for my girls at Sewing club!

They work.....!

Both want to jump into my Sewing kit.....!

But no.

I am sticking to my word, and will do a giveaway with the girls at school.
They'll love it!

Thank you Katy!
From me and my girls!
(and boys, if only for the scissor wielding excitment
and not the pink girliness!)

Love Claire. xxx
