Stamp, Ribbon and Mittens

20 Nov

What a delight this morning when the postman delivered a real handwritten letter from Australia, from a young woman who used to light up my English classes. She is now 31 years old and it is so lovely to hear from her.

A parcel arrived yesterday full of things I have ordered for Christmas presents so I cannot show you any of it apart from this bow which was attached to the inner parcel.It may give you a clue to the contents!



I have knitted something for myself for a change – a pair of mittens in Suffragette colours of purple, white and green. I used random coloured wool and was delighted when starting the second mitten, I realised that they were going to be close on identical!

    I can say with certainty, never have written to a past teacher, which goes to, you must have been outstanding. I applaud the writer and I applaud you.

    Noticing the bow was metallic I blew the image up looking for clues in the reflections. Nothing, with exception of a finger print; yours I presume.

    Your paws will love love love the stylish new coverings.
