Oh just look what I received in the post this morning...
Don't you think they are adorable, they are handmade by my lovely friend Laurie, she is so talented! She even painted a rose on the packaging, something I will cut out and keep.
It really did feel like Christmas receiving them and she even put in a little gift for Ella. The funniest thing was that Ella got really excited about the large bubble wrap, she instantly pleaded me to let her jump on it, yet another thing I love about children, their effortless ability to enjoy the most simplest of things in life.
Just time for a quick post... I have spent the last few days surrounded by cardboard boxes in some mad attempt to organise the stock room, but as of yet it still looks like I have yet to achieve anything... groan! I'm still suffering from the greatest need ever to declutter but as Jeremy quite calmly said when I was having a 'moment', its all stuff we need or has some sort of sentimental value, which is true (apart from business stock.) I hope other people are like me, I'm simply no good at outing anything that has any remote emotional value attached to it, this includes receipts for special days out, cards and worst of all any of Ella's things, this is partly because we do plan to have another baby in the future but also because each thing holds a memory... I just look at her little socks and can't bare to part with them. How sad am I..lol.
Well I best get back to the giant cardboard castle I made for Ella earlier (cardboard boxes were the only thing that I have managed to get rid of and now Ella is pleading that we keep them!)
