It's a strange one this year with all the restrictions. Our son lives at home, whilst our daughter and partner live in Cardiff. We haven't seen them since Christmas, I'm saving up my hugs until we can meet again; it's nice they can visit his mum and grandma today, even if it is a chat on the doorstep.
Dispite the different way we now live my family have surprised and spoilt me. My fabulous Hubby put together a super hamper, he's been buying bits when on his walks ... sneaky!
The doorbell went early this morning, a beautiful Mark's and Spencers bouquet of spring flowers from Hubby.
Our son has eagle eyes as he noticed that when I get cold in the afternoons I sit under a blanket which means no stitching or reading. His gift is just perfect, a wearable blanket. It has two arms, you put it on like a backwards cardigan .... and there's a front pocket ... I can't wait to feel cold and put it on.
Deliveries have been vital this last year, no more so than special occasions. Our daughter sent me a rose from M&S, it's just branches just now but the flowers will be pink peony like roses, something to look forward to in the summer.
She also sent a large flat parcel from the National Trust, very intriguing. It was a bird feeder, we had to attach the dish, it looks great in the garden, for now we haven't added any food as we don't want to encourage the squirrel. Maybe the birds will use it as a water table.
