First of all, thank you so much to everyone who left comments of encouragement. Thanks to you all, though I still think I suck at knitting, I’m determined to stick to it. I am even willing to be kicked out of Melissa’s “I suck at knitting” club, as long as I can be a member in the first place 🙂 (Boy, the laugh I got out of that comment!!).
Yesterday was also a fabulous day because such great things happened.
First, I checked emails in the morning and found that I had won a book!! Which, though not really something I would normally go for, I can’t wait to read. And when I’m done, I know a lot of people that might get a kick out of it that I can pass it on to.
Then when I came home I found this in my letterbox:
Receiving a cheque in the mail when you’re not expecting it can never be a bad thing. This may be the result of the electricity bill I paid a couple of months ago. Twice. I’ll not be doing that again, thanks to the fact that I actually file bills away once they’re paid (new filing system and all).
And when I got to the front door I found a huge package with this inside:
My sweet, sweet cousin bought this for me (probably more for the name of the set, rather than because I needed it). Actually another friend bought me the same set for Christmas last year. So I now have a placemats for eight – it may be time for a dinner party in the new house!!
All these gifts and nice words make me feel very special. Thank you lovely people (yes, even the people at Ergon Energy!!!).
