I’v adopted a sock monkey!
I got a parcel in the mail today — from Vancouver, and more specifically from Ana Maria — anyone who knows me will realise that the parcel itself, unopened, would have been enough to make my night. For those of you who don’t know me as well, I can tell you that I simply adore getting mail; postcards, parcels, especially letters, but even merchandise purchased from websites like Amazon, that I myself have ordered and paid for, will thrill me to such a ridiculous degree it’s quite silly. And what’s even sillier, really, is that no-one usually sends me anything. And so the few times I actually do receive something, it’s rarer than a Yuletide gift or birthday present (which is probably why I get just as excited about a postcard as I do about any of those..)
And today, a parcel arrived, and it contained both a present and an adorable postcard. It made my day, or week.
