Do you remember this doll I made for an exchange a wee while ago? Well, the post today brought the shawl that my dear friend Mel knitted for me.
As soon as I put in on a real warmth spread over my shoulders. I know that it's not just the warmth of the wool. But this is like wearing a million hugs.
Mel wrote a gorgeous note that she sent with the package telling me how much she carried this shawl around with her while she was working on it and how often she thought of me while she was knitting it. And I can feel it, there in every stitch is her love and care. I am carrying her warmth and friendship around my shoulders and it makes me smile and feel so glad and happy to have found a friend like Mel :-)
I want to show off to you my lovely winter boots:
I had spent a few evenings looking and searching for just the right thing online (there just isn't the selection here locally so it has to be online) I finally found the right boots and I was so lucky because my mum wanted to get them for me as my early Christmas present :-) yay for sheep lined, warm winter boots and yay for mummies who buy them for you (thank you Bubs!)!
So I am feeling better again. Allowing myself to feel my feelings last weekend was very freeing and in fact I have felt so much better we have even been doing some painting...
Yesterday afternoon we made Joa his Halloween costume for Buddies.
He'd make a great Mr Strong...if only I could persuade him to wear it ;-P
It's hard if your mum thinks you have hilarious shoes and she wants you to wear them all the time...and it's hard when you have a big brother like Benny...
