lovely mail

I got some lovely mail the other day. It was from my blogging friend Jo from Through the keyhole. Jo has been blogging for 10 years and had an anniversary giveaway on her blog to celebrate this. I have been reading Jo's blog for a long time - I checked back on her blog and the first comment of mine that I found was in October, 2012. I then checked on my own blog and Jo commented on mine also in October, 2012. Nearly 8 years! That's a long time!

Anyway, I was amazed, delighted, surprised and ecstatic to win Jo's giveaway and the parcel arrived earlier this week.

I very quickly opened my box of delights.

And this is what was inside.

Oh. My. Goodness. Look at all that lovely stuff. Fabric. Yarn. A kit to make a wee sloth. A book to read. Tulips to plant. Flavoured teas and hot chocolate to drink. And lots of chocolate goodies to munch. (Some may have already been munched!) I don't know what I'm going to make with the yarn or the fabric yet but I'll think of something!

Jo wrote a note inside a card with a beautiful drawing of a Cavalier King Charles on the outside of it.

The picture looks just like Jo's Archie and our wee Rosie (still missed after 7 years.) I especially like when Jo shows Archie on her blog. He just makes me smile just like Rosie used to do.

Of course, as soon as the parcel arrived I e-mailed Jo and thanked her but I just want to say thanks again on here. Here's to many more years of you blogging, Jo, and I hope we'll keep commenting on each others blogs for many more years to come.


  1. You're very welcome, I hope you enjoy the goodies. The best thing I've got out of my blog over the ten years of blogging is friendship. I've made some wonderful friends and yes, it's amazing looking back how long some of us have known each other. I just had to send the Cavalier card, it's so cute. I can't believe it's seven years since you lost your Rosie, I miss seeing the photo of her that you had in your header.

    1. I know! It's hard to believe it's been 7 years since we lost Rosie. We sometimes think of getting another dog but then we think "not at the moment"! I don't know if/when the moment will come. Maybe some day! Thanks, again! :o)

  2. What a lovely prize! Lots to do and lots of yummy goodies! It's so nice that you're still blogging friends after so many years. Long may it continue! ❤️

    1. I agree! 👍

      Sadly, the yummy goodies are disappearing way too quickly! Whoops! 🤪


Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blethers. I really appreciate it. I do try to reply to everyone but sometimes life just gets in the way of that happening! :o)
