A most unexpected suprise

You know those times in your life when nothing seems to be going anywhere... when you're in pain and sick and the doctor isn't sure what's causing it, those times when you can hardly bring yourself to get out of bed in the morning because you can't think of anything useful to do? Those times when you're sure there are wonderful things happening in other people's lives but not in yours ... just those times when you're down and not a thought in your head is of happier times ahead.

I felt like that today, I was in bed at 4.20pm in the afternoon as not only was I exhausted for no real reason but I'd just had enough... I'd tried taking some photos outside for fun but didn't get the buzz, I thought about doing some housework but didn't, I even tried to crochet but found even making the simplest of projects wasn't  working out...

Until there was a knock at the door. I ignored it, if it was my husband coming home he had a key and would be in any second to give me a hug. But the door didn't open. The knock came again, the dogs leaped off their little nest on the bed beside me to bark at the possible intruder but still I didn't move. The dogs wouldn't stop barking so eventually I got up just to see what was going on; I open the door and I find a large, tightly packed but light parcel sitting at my front door.

A confused thought crossed my mind, I wasn't expecting any parcels... I pick it up, bring it inside, sit it down on the coffee table and see that it reads...

Desperately I turn the package over and over in my hands looking for the name of sender, looking for someone to thank but all I find is 'a fellow secret granny'. Instantly I know that someone in our crochet group there is a very VERY sneaky lady who was kind and generous enough to send me a suprise package in the post! Either this is one HUGE granny square from my round 10 granny or.....


lots and lots of YARN!

What a suprise!!!

Secret granny, I don't know who you are...I don't know why you thought of me and I don't know why you decided I was worthy of your sweet gift of yarny awesome sauce but from the bottom of my heart THANKYOU!!!  I will ensure that your beautiful gifts are made into something special...

What would I do without my darling 'grannies' and their neverending support and kindness? Secret granny, you are an angel! What a lucky girl I am :o)
