A HUGE parcel from my lovely friend Caro who lives in Sydney. We grew up together in Bristol and she knows my deepest, darkest secrets! (groovy envelope, huh!)
Anyway, the parcel was full of belated birthday (May) and starting job / masters celebrations (June). She knows about my stripy obsession, so even found the right wrapping paper....
And inside was a pack of stripy table mats, 2 different kinds of stripy notelets / wrapping paper and a stripy mobile phone cover. I just had to smile :-)
But best of all there was a long, long handwritten letter. I'd forgotten how good it felt to read and recognise a friend's handwriting. It took me back to when we were students, we used to write letters to each other all the time. Before the days of email :-) I felt very close and connected to her.... So know I just have to get up early and ring her before I leave for work - unless she checks online and reads this message first - THANKS CARO !!!!!!!!!!
What a day of stripy synchronicity!
