Happy post

You remember how Sandie stole that book  won the book that I so enjoyed about Mail Art?  Well, it looks like either she's a fast learner, or she has a natural flair for such things, as look what dropped onto my doormat this morning:

 and look what was inside it...

such a cute notepad!  Thank you so much Sandie - I love it. 
It's lucky I was quick out into the hallway to retrieve it as we have been puppy sitting my daughter's dog
and she was very quick off the mark to see what the noise was.  I expected a bit of a tug of war if she got her paws on it before me!  My daughter has been suffering this week with a bout of food poisoning.  I've never seen her in so much pain or distress.  So we had little Coco for her at the beginning of the week as she did not have the strength to look after her and then we had her later in the week too as once she was feeling better, her boyfriend had organised a night away in a posh hotel 'up north' somewhere and then a day visiting his brother.  It was lovely to have the puppy, she's quite a character and it seems very quiet now they have come to collect her and take her back to her proper home.

I reckon Sandie has a natural flair!
Coco is a real cutie...Boo has driven me mad today..it's a lot colder here and I've got the doors shut, which she's not been used to over the summer, so she isn't free to wander in and out as she pleases. I've been up and down like a yoyo letting her out and in!

Argh!! Why is Blogger eating my comments again? What I said was:

it's beautiful. She has a talent, that's for sure. And I'm glad to hear that your daughter is feeling better. Food poisoning can be very nasty :(

Glad you liked the notepad and mail art, Deb. I missed you today at EK and hope you daughter soon feels herself again. Food poisoning is pretty nasty.
Coco is one cute puppy - I'm glad you didn't have to wrestle her for the mail!
