But Just as I was about to take them out of the oven there was a knock at the door. It was of course the postie with a rather large box for me. A couple of week's ago I won a giveaway over at Becky's lovely blog The rambling of an everyday mummy.
So we pulled the cakes out of the oven and set them to cool. By this time river was beside himself waiting for me to "open the box mummy" lol. so we opened it up to reveal oh so many pretty little parcels.
And when we opened the card and river discovered that the two blue parcels were actually for him, he set off round the living room doing a merry little dance lol
Naturally River just had to go first...
And was more than thrilled with his cowboy cushion for his bed made from the cutest of fabrics. a lovely little hanging heart made with cath kidston's cow boy print and a little selection of chocolates.
" can I eat this now mummy"
" No you can wait until after you've eaten your tea"
I'm so mean aren't I lol.
And that very pretty gift bag that you saw in the picture above. well that was filled with lovely little gifts just for me.
So what did I get....
A very pretty rose print make up bag, The most gorgeous hand bag note book, some yummy hand lotion, a vanilla lavender Yankee candle tart which I have to say smells Divine, a box of my all time favorite chocolates ( I'm gonna lie to you here and tell you that I'm waiting until after I've had my tea hehehe), some very cosy socks, a very pretty lavender cushion made with one of my favorite fabrics, a lovely little rose cross stitch kit which will be slipped into my suitcase for our trip away this weekend and of course the lovely and very well made card which will be cherished and kept safe with my new little collection of cards from bloggy friends.
So needless to say I am now feeling very spoilt in deed. Thank you so very much Becky and Jess You got it all so right and have indeed made me smile today.
So how about you, what made you smile today?
