Emma supplied this week’s word, and also, perhaps unwittingly, the subject matter for my post. I had been pondering the word and wondering what to write, as my life at the moment is not very surprising or eventful. So my pleasant surprises include, say, Littlest S&S sleeping for six hours at night, or even – joy of joys – an hour during the day, so I can have the use of both hands – and the week’s unpleasant surprise was that our local Tesco has stopped stocking not just the lemon yoghurt that I love, but also the mixed pack of rhubarb, gooseberry and blackcurrant yoghurt. I am bereft of my yoghurts of choice. All very traumatic, but not really worthy of an entire blog post. There’s contentment, yes, but not surprises.
Until the post brought a parcel from Emma, containing these:
This was, indeed, a wonderful surprise.
I’ve just flicked through and although mostly it’s about papercraft and card making, which aren’t my usual preoccupations, I can see some fun ideas that could easily translate to other types of project, and reading them in more detail will see me through some of the baby’s marathon feeding sessions (I’m nearly halfway through Season 4 of Mad Men and we’ve watched all of State of Play, and that’s just the evening feeds) and give me some inspiration for when I have the use of both hands on a regular basis.
Go and see Emma to find out who else has surprises for you this week!
