How exciting!

How exciting.I won Kathy's giveaway(postcardsfromthepp).I thought it was just a book but is was a whole goody bag, all beautifully wrapped and a gorgeous handmade card.When I opened the first package(above) this lovely book was in it.I can't wait to read it.

There were lovely Christmassy things.

This photo decided to go side on!

And a candle and an owl to add to my collection.There was also a chocolate snowman,hot chocolate kit and some needles.I was so thrilled and so much thought had gone into it.Thank you so much Kathy.It made my day.It needed cheering because among the xmas post C had a tax demand for over £400.He is one of the losers in the inland revenue mistake.I hope I am not close behind.You work hard ,pay your taxes and then when you retire they tax your pension!Then they get it wrong and they want even more.


  1. Isn't it lovely when you receive something so nice like that, especially when a lot of thought has been put into it.

    Sorry to hear about the Tax Man's booboo - they shouldn't expect us to pay for their mistakes. As a Benefits Officer, if I make a mistake and give someone too much benefit, and there is no way they could realise this has happened, we have to write the debt off - Inland Revenue should do the same - and take it out of the bosses wages - they get enough.

  2. Congratulations - what a super and thoughful prize - I'm sure you will enjoy reading Cranford - I loved it:) What a nuisance about the tax - hope you don't have to pay any more back!

  3. I'm so glad you liked your parcel ... I enjoyed making it up!I hope you enjoy reading the book.
    So sorry to hear about the tax, and what a terrible time to find out about it!
    Love Kathy xxx
