i baked you a brownie!

it's to say a heartfelt thank you for the good luck wishes and lovely words left following the last post. each and every one gives me an extra boost which helps heaps right now.

week one of waiting has been fine. i've spent time with my mum on a new commission (more of that to be shown soon) and indeed she looked after me and ciaran for the top part of the week which was brilliant! lovely dinners...watching films...a foot massage...just having you around made me feel calm and collected mum : )

we also made the most of a few days off together once it was just the 2 of us and took a couple of gentle day trips out. a picnic at the seaside...a punt on the river cam...ice creams aplenty and afternoon naps. relaxing and keeping the happy feelings flowing!

and to top it all off i have been the recipient of the best kind of mail lately...suprise goodies!

when a man in a van brought flowers to my doorstep i thought these have got to be for a neighbour...but these pretty freesias in all colours were for me and make me smile each time i look at them. lynsey you are such a precious friend to me!

and a squidgy jiffy bag of delights also dropped through the letterbox to brighten my morning..ok are you ready to see a very cute bunny rabbit?

she is handmade by lynn...one of my best blogging buddies from the early days. lynn has shared so much with me over the last few years since we "met"...from the best and easiest cake recipe to a thrifted cardigan. we email on random subjects...anything from woodburning stoves to tv crushes. and now i have a gorgeous new softy who i'm keeping close. i'm thinking of her as my lucky mascot : )

under the label of florence hope lynn works on the most gorgeous things along with lovely stella who made this bag especially for me. isn't it sweet? it is beautifully sewn...the perfect shape for summer days and even better i think there are more bags on the horizon so i'm keeping an eye on their shop.

lined in my favourite green!

so things have to kind of get back to normal here tomorrow. we both head back to the day jobs. carry on waiting. some new projects. birthday cards to make. catching up with emails. ironing. and all the while keep positive!!
