What the postie brought

Yesterday and today have been rather good! it's always a good thing when the postie brings nice things ... I had been told I was to expect parcel but had no idea what was going to be in it ...

Today I was looking forward to a trip to ken Picton's hair salon in Cardiff Bay for a haircut, and I'm really pleased with the result! They always do it nice, but the girl who cut my hair today has got it perfect I think!

photo of me with my new haircut and holding a beautiful handmade cushion

As you can see in the photo, I'm holding a very lovely handmade cushion ... it really is fantastic and came all the way from Sarah Narcoleptic way up north in the Shetlands. i can confirm it is an incredibly comfy cushion, and i was only thinking the other day how much I needed one to rest my back when i'm leaning against the radiator, and my head when lounging on my bed listening to audio books, so it is absolutely perfect! ... one of these days I'll get my quilting engine in gear and rattle off some nice handmade goodies of my own because there are lots of people I would like to make things for and feel pretty rubbish for not having been able to!

At the moment I'm preparing for a test trip on the train ... I've booked the assistance service to make sure I get on the train and find a seat and get off again ... if all goes smoothly tomorrow I'll be undertaking a more exciting trip next week to see the band Orbital in bristol, so that train trip is a little more complex! if you don't hear from me for a couple of weeks you can bet I'll be stuck at Bristol temple Meads trying to find the right platform to come home! lol


  1. Oh wow great cushion from Sarah - it does look very comfy!

  2. Cushion looks great, hope the train trip was successful (being stuck in Bristol, what a nightmare!)

  3. It's fabulous! Hope the train journey goes (went?) well!

  4. Lovely cushion!
    Enjoy your band, when you get there.

  5. Who's a lucky ducky! Nice cumfy cushion with gorgeous hexy design. Hope you weren't cold on that platform.
