Better than frankincense any day

So happy to be feeling better today that I sang and danced my way around Sainsburys. Strangely enough the other shoppers didn't share my joy. Until I inadvertently made one laugh when she spotted the look of horror on my face on being told the total cost of my shopping. 

And now I've cleaned the lounge and moved the furniture ready for the tree - and now I'm beginning to fade fast. Time for a little lie down I think. Don't want to overdo it.

Yesterday in true Blue Peter style I fashioned two ... um, not sure what you'd call them ... sort of packaging out of two perfectly good boxes. Good but not big enough for my purposes boxes that is. I proudly handed them over to the Post Office assistant and she said I wouldn't get a Blue Peter badge as they didn't meet the criteria i.e. they were too big to be small packages. But that was her criterion and it could be said that I wasn't trying to meet it although I would have tried if I'd bothered to find out. Or even thought about it.
You may compliment me on my creativity of you wish.

The old bible college next door to us has been taken over by a church from Singapore to use as a missionary college I think. They're in the process of doing it up and in the meantime they have a growing congregation. Yesterday two of that congregation knocked on our door and presented us with a Christmas gift.
Better than frankincense any day.

The packages look perfectly fine to me:) I save boxes, but it always seems I never have the right size when I want to ship something.

Glad you are feeling better, Liz; nothing worse than being sick over Christmas! But don't overdo.

You saw my Facebook post, so you know we have another grandbaby! Instead of wrapping and cleaning yesterday, I got to spend time watching him sleep on Facetime (he's 800 miles away)--best Friday ever!

What a wonderful way to spend a Friday, Rose!
