I received my amazing parcel from Kirsty at Wharfedale Woolworks today. I’m so touched by her generosity, and the wonderful things in the huge parcel she sent me. So here’s the pics so you can see too!
How did you know! My favourite choccie:
The lovely Kirsty who sent me the package also left me a lovely note:

If you live long enough you will discover the great secret we all hate to admit: life is inherently tough. Difficult things happen. You lose your job or your money or your spouse. You get old, you get sick, you die You slog through your days beleaguered and reactive even when there are no noticeable disasters — a normal day has its many large and small annoyances, and the world, if you care to notice, and it is difficult not to, is burning.
We want enjoyment, we want to avoid pain and discomfort. But it is impossible that things will always work out, impossible to avoid pain and discomfort. So to be happy, with a happiness that doesn’t blow away with every wind, we need to be able to make use of what happens to us — all of it — whether we find ourselves at the top of a mountain or at the bottom of the sea.
