I got a lovely Surprise this Morning and I have to say I did not expect this at all As it is lovely and warm here I leave the front Door open for Gissi as he likes to sit by the Door I then decided that I needed a bit of shopping, went to the front Door and there is a Parcel, I wasn't expecting any Parcels, I picked it up and had a look at the Sender, well I was pleasantly surprised as it was from a good Friend who leaves in America, she never said a word or anything to me. I opened the Parcel and it brought Tears to my eyes as inside was a beautiful Cross Stitch with lovely words Thank you my lovely Friend, I love it and will treasure it all the time I love you and you know who you are Big Hugs to you

Sunshine itself is a lovely surprise, and then to receive such a wonderful gift is just over the top. I hope Gissi enjoyed the sun, and I am surprised he did not alert you to the delivery person.

Oh yes Gerty it was lovely Gissi thought it was for him as my Mum sometimes sends me Parcels and puts things in for gissi he was to busy trying to get into the Box lol But he knows the Postlady so that is why He loved the Sun and is lying there again today

That was sweet of your friend to do that. I'm suppose to get a box from a family member but I haven't received it yet. Snail mail is very slow. I hope I receive it soon and I know it will bring tears to my eyes.

Well you are very lucky to have the nice warm weather, it is quite cold here today and cloudy and miserable, and I do believe it is trying its hardest to rain. It was a nice surprise for you, it is always nice to have surprises, especially like that.

Isn't it so nice to get a surprise from a friend. we got one at Christmas from an email friend of my sons. she sent us a brand new state of the art microwave oven.I was floored and myson said he had not expected that either. I do not know the lady but she has to be one really nice person for sure. Her son also sent my so a space heater earlier.the one he had was on the fritz. these people live in England so the cost of shipping had to be really high.
