yummy mail...

i love the sound of mail...
stop-start motorbike
or
a motor not quite screeching to a halt...door slamming...one, two, three, four, five...there, it slams again and the motor hastily retreats...hooray, that means mail or maybe even a package...

today it was this lovely parcel of afternoon tea goodness from kath at red current...


the reason for my interest in the mail is that i am anxiously awaiting my first ever delivery from yesasia, so you can understand my excitement when i also discovered this in the mailbox...


off we trot to the post office to collect
a small slim envelope...
that couldn't possibly contain my japanese craft books!
and it doesn't...
it's stamps for you know who and while they are perfectly lovely stamps,
it's not quite the same!
luckily i got to come home to this...


and a nice cup of tea and these yummy biscuits...


thanks ever so much kath... they are delicious and made my day!

and hello, too, as I've never been here before.

thank you for stopping by! last night i dreamt it was christmas & someone gave me denise schmidt's quilts AND a japanese craft book. hmm. maybe my interest has come to an unhealthy point, if i am now dreaming about these books? ;)
