Thanks for popping in.
My day offish, hasn’t actually started yet – and it’s already 3pm!!
I’m rubbish at this down time bit, aren’t I.
But you should have been here in the kitchen last night,
when we finally got in from the NEC.
Made a cuppa, and lit a candle,
and then presented dear old birthday boy Dave with all the wonderful cards and gifts you sent him.
He could not believe it.
All I kept hearing was, “Wow!” and, “Look at this one!”
and “This one is beautiful!”
“A Harley Bookmark! Wow!”
“Shrink Plastic! Check this out Barb!”
“You could frame this one! Look!”
And the farmer was warmed right through to his soul.
He was properly overwhelmed.
And this morning I spent a pleasant hour,
admiring them all at my leisure, and putting them out on display.
Kitchen, living-room, dining room!
Shelagh even made him Happy Birthday Bunting.
It is fantastic!!
Every letter is a fabulous jumper!
Check this out!!!
What a super idea!
Look! Even D-A-V-E !
Every one a treasure.
You cannot imagine how chuffed he was.
Having had rather an uneventful birthday,
and having accepted that graciously,
It was just great to see him beaming like a Cheshire cat.
“To think all these people were thinking about me, and I had no idea” he said.
I got his parents’ photo to the front, too.
Because after all, they played a crucial part in his birth day.
And this morning, more cards arrived!
Thank you so very much.
You made his day, you really did.
I had felt awful about having to work at the NEC
and leave him here alone.
I mean, if you think about it, it is pretty gutty.
But you all made the difference.
You cared enough to brighten his day,
and it lifted him immensely.
“I’m going to keep them all, too,” he said.
So no need to worry about next year;
I’ll just put these out again!!!
As a Clarity Crafting Community,
we really are so much greater than the sum of our parts, aren’t we.
Love and warmest hugs,
