An Unexpected Parcel

Image

Normally when a parcel arrives for me at work it’s something boring like stationery, or food for Moo**, or a present I’ve bought for somebody else. Last week though, something special arrived, something special and just for me and completely unexpected!

Can you guess what it is?

Or does this picture help? No?

Yes, that’s right, not one but two pairs of gorgeous hand-knitted socks from my mother-in-law, Verna.

I already have three lovely pairs knitted by Verna. I love them so much that I’ve started “saving” them. We’re going to New York in December, and I know I’ll need them there. So unbeknown to me, husband mentioned to his mother that another pair or two would be gratefully accepted, and appreciated.

And here they are….

I can’t decide which colour I like best. The obvious choice is the pink… but then, the green and pink are particularly handsome too, don’t you think?

I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend, and that the weather is warmer than it is in Melbourne. I really do think it’s time for spring, regardless of what the calendar says.

Love Terri and Moo xxx

** Moo wanted me to mention that she doesn’t think having dog food delivered is boring.
