This week has been a week of anticipation in the funkyhouse. Of course there is all the usual excitement and busyness of the festive season. But we have also had the anticipation of a new roof being put on the house. It's been a long time coming and I'm relieved to see the new slates going on now. Here are a couple of views
Much better don't you think? I must say the roofers have kept me busy making cups of tea on what have been very cold days for working outside. So much so that the kettle exploded on Saturday. Attempts to buy a matching replacement have been difficult. I did find one, but on getting it home and unpacking it from its box it was covered in scratches......I wasn't a happy bunny (or monkey for that matter) and back to the shop it had to go. I refuse to battle with shopping centre crowds any more, so I've ordered a new one from Amazon and in the meantime am catering with a saucepan!
Without doubt this week the most exciting thing was the anticipation of a parcel. I won a giveaway from lovely Simone at Linden Grove. Iwas so excited when I found the parcel on the doormat on Wednesday evening after work that I could hardly contain myself.
Inside were these beautifully wrapped little parcels.
They were opened feverishly to reveal these little beauties.
You will be shocked to know that I've already eaten the chocolate. The large heart is on display in the dining room filling it with the fragrance of the most delicious Christmas spices and the little pink heart sits prettily on my jacket.
I'm so lucky to win these beautiful handmade items and I was so shocked because I never usually win anything. Isn't the kindness and generosity of fellow bloggers absolutely amazing!
Thnak you Simone.
