A day with Friends...near & far!

Today was just one of those days...a PMSing crappy day...but with a little help from my friends I managed to get by (borrowing words from The Beatles)! Had a lunch date with some very special buds...Thanks guys for putting up with my mopey--dopey mood! The when I arrived home...at the door was a package from a VERY special friend across the pond!


A New Years Package!!! Full of day brightening goodies...




Some reminders of how close we are even though there's an ocean between us!! Some day...some day...I'll get there!!







A cute "Sheepie" desk calendar...I don't know how she knew that I hadn't bought a calendar for work yet?!?





A very special "Good Luck" box....



We have a lot to toast to...New Year, Burns Night, Mom's Birthday, Friday's...




There's a book of Scottish names, a keychain--"First Class Librarian" (that's ME!), a pencil box with goodies in it but I think I'm going to use that for my DP needles, some WONDERFUL Alpaca yarn...which I'll have to find the perfect pattern for!
And believe it or not...some candy I've never had before--Scottish Tablet! Which is, I must say, Heavenly!!!! I don't even know how to describe it...

Gourdongirl...You're the BEST! I've said it before and I'll keep saying it! THANK YOU!!

Keep on Knittin', Spinnin' & Walkin'!!

I've got a lot of walking to make up...tomorrow!

That GourdonGirl is awesome! What a great package. I love the unexpected kind. Someday you'll jump the pond. I'm sure of it!

I'm glad it all arrived in one piece. I enjoy spoiling, so you never know there might be more!

I can't wait till the day one of us jumps the pond!

I like the little "in case of emergency" care package of whisky! ;-) Of course, all of the other goodies are great, too. Isn't Shona the best? :-)
