Oh it has been exciting!
I have been containing myself with difficulty, waiting for some post to arrive.
Let us go back in time a little. No, a little further than that! And a little further- no stop! not quite that far!
I have a set of cousins in Australia. Scattered about, but over there. About as far away from me as they could get! Then introduce Skype! And two Sundays ago, I was chatting to my eldest Coz, for about an hour.
Now, in 1999 he visited this country, to see his Mum. And we visited whilst he was there. When I was small I would have followed him like a little dog, given half the chance. My lovely, soft big Coz! well, he is still big, and still soppy and soft! And lovely. Just older! He had a video camera, with autofocus and zoom and all sorts. And he took videos on that visit! Chatting on Skype, he remembered.
So, he edited them, and sent me a copy, which arrived today.
Have you watched a video, 13 years later, having never seen it before?
I can tell you, I didn't recognise my own children! My 19 year old back to 6 years old! My 22 year old, is now 9! and my son is only 11, with his voice starting to change. I never noticed at the time, but on the video, it is obvious. And do I still sound like that? I don't know, but I don't think I sound like that to me!
But that was not all! As you know, I have been participating in
the Frame Purse Swap. A lot of folk had already received their purses,
Certainly, my purse had arrived safe and sound, at it's destination. And
today, the purse for me arrived!
But where did all those goodies come from?
who could tell?
What wonderful fairy sent these?
I think there is a slight clue on the card!
Now amn't I the lucky one!
Thank you Rhonda, you are a star!
