On Christmas Eve I had a lovely surprise as the German Glitter Glass from Meyer Imports which I won in a blog candy draw arrived from America. I have taken pictures but they simply do not capture the bedazzling colours adequately.
The colours are, from the top, Red, Copper, Gold, Pale Yellow-green, Pale Blue, Violet, Black, White and Silver and they are sumptuous. I thought I would have to pat down Sian when she left because she loved them in their cunning wee bottles. I did offer to give them to her but she does not craft and said it was better that I kept them to use!
Huge thanks to Jon Meyer; I have a link to his blog and to a UK distributor of the product in my sidebar - not that I am doing this for gain but because I was so thrilled to have been chosen to receive this gorgeous gift.
While this gift came all the way from the USA in time for Christmas Day, I still await a present for Morgan which was apparently dispatched from Bradford on 30th November and is in a 'backlog', also apparently. I have never had problems with Internet shopping until this incident and had to buy an alternative gift. I wonder how long the backlog is expected to be - if it arrives before July she can have it for her birthday!
It was disappointing but was only a small glitch in our festivities....... it is so quiet now that they have all gone back to their homes. Our children are loaned to us for such a small period of time and I am so proud of the two wonderful young women they have become but sometimes I have a sentimental wish that they were the little girls they once were, just for a wee while! I am getting all mushy because 'Mary Poppins' is on in the background and 'Feed the Birds' is being sung. I used to sing this for my sisters when we were young and I sang it to my two when they were small so it always puts me in a reminiscent frame of mind!
With tears dripping on the keyboard and the sound of Julie Andrews, I will say cheerio for now.
