During the general turmoil of my life over the last few months I have received some lovely gifts from afar.
A while back my Mum went to Armenia for a holiday. I know, who goes to Armenia for a holiday, only my Mum...and her friend!!!
Anyway, she brought me back this set of Russian Dolls.... (I did ask for them!) and....
a pair of woven slippers and heaps of other lovely bits and pieces like earrings and little salt pots that I have forgotten to photograph.
At the same time Mum was in Armenia, my best friend Mary Thistle was touring Europe. She honoured my request for a French house and garden mag. Its absolutely divine and doesn't matter that I barely understand it - lol!!
Also a Moet champagne stopper, actually I asked for that as well!!!
and best of the best, this exquisite set of postcards, be sure to click to enlarge, they truly are incredible. I am going to frame them for my new apartment..... another story there!
Gamma (Babes Mum) who lives in Cairns got busy knitting and sent this jumper she made for me, I am not doing it justice in this photo, it really is lovely and I really am not that square and boxy looking!!! However I am that tired looking!!!
and this one for the Princess along with the hat, she of course looks gorgeous in her photo!!!
Life is just mad right now, my head spins from it all. We are all still stunned from Granddads sudden death, especially poor Amah. I have all sorts of other stuff going on too, some good, some bad but working through it all.
The Princess is doing ok. Her wee world has been rocked badly this year, Granddads death compounding it but overall she is ok so long as she has Mummy, Daddy or Amah firmly in her sight.
Denny, Linley and Patricia if you are reading this I will get in touch soon, I promise.
Thanks to all of you for the beautiful supportive comments regarding Granddads passing and also for the support in general for the Princess and myself.
