Birthday mail

I've decided it was an excellent idea saving up any birthday mail that arrived over the past week or so and opening it all at once this morning (in bed, natch, with company, double natch - who seems not at all interested in my new goodies!)

Princess B got me a black foldable cutting board, which I already knew but held off opening until today. I'm in the middle of a major workroom overhaul and this will be the perfect finishing touch...

I also knew Kerry had got me a pristine vintage tracing and painting book because I saw it at Camberwell Markets and she bought it for me, making sure I knew it had to stay in it's wrapping until today. I am bursting with crafty ideas for the pictures:Then, in the what's in this package? category was some kiwifruit and pavlova soap (smells very very yummy and I can't wait til it's cured enough to use) and a new CD (See below) from Sis, which will make a nice change from the Pet Shop Boy's remix of The Killers' Read my Mind which I've been rather obsessed by since I heard it on Triple J Tuesday night and which has been on (very very) high rotate since I gave up and went out and bought the CD single yesterday. Such maturity...

And my last parcel for the morning, also from New Zealand, was from the lovely Tracy. Who sent a set of 5 black felt handcrafted cats (yay! now I can be an old spinster with lots of cats, but without the vet bills!), a bag of cream vintage daisy buttons and the most excellent book for reading in bed the morning of your 41st birthday...

I'm feeling terribly spoilt. Thanks girls!
