Passing on a little sunshine ……

The sun started to shine very brightly down South in the UK yesterday and what a joy it was to see and feel as it has been so flipping cold lately.

The day started with a sonic alarm that goes off for one of my housemates and the clue is in the name, as the very rafters seem to shake. Five minutes after this the door bell went and I went downstairs with upstanding hair in a rather fetching pink spotted dressing gown. These are new surroundings for me and it is all still unfamiliar so as I opened all the bolts, and goodness knows what else, on the front door a mobile phone belonging to the postman on the other side started to ring. I finally got the door open to the sound of the theme tune from The High Chapparal and I was laughing which set the postman off as he commented ‘So you like that?’. Our laughter alerted a queue of early morning folk waiting for the bus across the street and what a sight greeted them and no, you can’t see a picture (I’m not Cherie Blair!).

Someone had sent us a special delivery of a very well wrapped empty box. No name on the parcel just our address and we are the only house with this postcode. A completely empty box….

Having the day start in this way there was only one way to go. I am currently set-up to work in the main dining room, amidst all the moving chaos going on around me, till I take up residence on the top floor in the house. There was sunshine outside so I went out and bought some bright yellow and white daisies for our home.

Let there be sunshine within.

It was a good day x

    Angel Janey, I laughed as I read your blog and have walked your exact steps at some unearthly hour in my dressing gown (pink and white stars) followed by three dogs and the tremour of what is labelled ‘alarm’ but should be renamed ‘cardiac exerciser’!
    I’m sure Royal Mail, and other similar couriers, are getting used to us girls ‘eventually’ opening Fort Knox as ‘Scary Mary’s’ to welcome a parcel, this one being rather mystical.
    I love your daisies. I love you. Thank you for being who you are xxx
    p.s. Red Robin pops by each morning to say ‘hi’! xxx

    An empty box? Either someone with a sense of humour or probably from this supplier I once knew in Dallas, Texas. They actually shipped an empty 25 kg box on international priority to one of my Asian customers!

    Jane, do you suppose someone tried to capture sunshine in that box and mail it to you? (tee,hee!) Your wonderful bouquet has brought a huge ray of sunshine into my heart today!

    I’ll wander out in my pj’s at times and I am sure it’s a sight, but then I am nature too… Right? Happy sunshine day!

    “I opened all the bolts, and goodness knows what else”, not the dressing gown I hope!
