My gift from the UK arrived today

Thursday, September 26, 2013

My dear friend Asta, sent me a gift from the UK. That is not surprising, she has a heart as big as her is what is surprising. She bought me a skirt (like one she has that I admired) and never having met me in person....bought the right size. Its so right, it could have been that I went shopping with her and tried it on before hand.

As much as I am uncomfortable in front of the camera, I promised to have my photo taken with said skirt on.

The whole gift presentation was so lovely. I got it from the post office and with my mother along, we went to a little coffee shop. My plan was to keep it as it was till I could get home for a photo because the wrapping was so beautifully done....but Im afraid my curiosity got the better of me and I opened it. So here it all is, separated. LOL

The chocolates are delicious too. Justin in particular loves almonds, so he's going to love sharing them with me....two to one....or I wont fit into the skirt for long. emoticon
I wont anyway, but at least it will be because I lost weight, not gained. After a plateau of +- a month, my weight is finally going down again and the scale is moving. Yay for me.

I have been so busy the last month, I have barely had time to get to blogging....this broke the dry spell, so maybe I will manage to get some more done.

Hope everyone's having a good day. I have had a great day and here's hoping it continues for a few more days at least.
