Who's a lucky girl then?


Postie came today with this parcel for me.

I was expecting some special popcorn from a friend in the USA,
but when I opened it look what I saw:

Rather more than a packet of popcorn.

In fact there were 4 boxes of popcorn and other things.

There were 3 boxes of CrackerJacks, all in really nostalgic type packaging,

There was also this box of a different type of popcorn.

Of course, I opened one box of the CrackerJacks straight away. (Well, it would have been rude not to, wouldn't it?) It was delicious. Mr Fence tried it too, and between us we demolished half a box in seconds. I took one box into my father, he opened his, tried it, and did exactly the same as us. It's VERY more-ish.

As well as the popcorn, were these gorgeous gifts:

This lovely little notebook will be going in my bag with me wherever I go. It will be so much better than scrabbling round for a piece of paper whenever I am out and want to write something.

The other thing is a brilliant gadget for hanging your bag from the edge of a table when you're out. I don't know about you, but I hate putting my bag on the floor, not just cos of dirt and germs but cos I don't like it being out of sight, so normally I end up cuddling it when trying to drink my coffee or whatever, but no longer.

So now you see why I say I'm a lucky girl. Thank you very, very much Ms Red Geranium.


  1. Wow, what a brilliant parcel! I've not had cracker jacks, I think maybe I need to get over the pond again soon ...

  2. Oh yum, yum. Love care pacakges from the States!

  3. ooh yes, Sewali do go, then you could bring me some back too! They really are so scrummy.

  4. What a great package. I like the idea of the bag handle thingie. I'm the same as you I hate putting my bag on the floor. Mind you that's because I normally forget it's there. I don't use a bag very often

    Love and hugs Gina xxx
