*** My lap top screen. It is the teenagers old one - around 6 years old, so has actually done very well - just a bit hard to type an assignment on!*** ,br> feeling very, very, very jaded today with education and life in general. I'll get over it, but after this, might just go and plonk myself on my deck with my uni work and a glass of red wine!
Alison has been very patient waiting for me to blog bout what I received from her in my "Share Your Country Swap."
It is so much fun getting packages at school from overseas - most weeks for me with my volume of book buying!
Alison made the most incredible "zentangled" Eiffel Tower picture. I have climbed it , panicking most of the way as I am hugely scared of heights, but i was not standing in the queue which seemed miles long, to take the lift up!
The mints are very very strong.. I had a few and the boys had the rest.
Amazing handmade cards, one of which I will use for a birthday in a few weeks, a spotty pen too - on my desk at school.
a fab magnet with a good mantra to live by
and a wonderful , very French, teatowel. I have driven a lot around France, but must say Iremember very little from 20 odd years ago! Visited Paris 3-4 times too, but if I went back now, I think it would be like a first visit!
Thanks Alison for a fab swap! She also made a bookmark too, which I seem to have mislaid in my piles of paper somewhere....
Has anyone received any amazing swap goodies yet? I keep on looking at blogs...

I haven't blogged about mine yet because I haven't heard if my partner has received hers. You have just reminded me that I should email her to ask, I know I sent it off a while ago. Great swap, thanks for organising x xReplyDelete
:-) I'm glad you liked it and it all got there safely. Thanks again for your lovely things - I loved the Mighty Perky Nana bar - I definitely didn't share THAT with Mr FD!!ReplyDelete
Lots of lovely swap goodies, I've seen a few posts too so lots of around the world swap love going on. I know elaina has received my parcel but apparently customs didn't like the lavender she tried to send me so it was sent back to her! Silly customs, but it is on it's way now xxReplyDelete
Lots of lovely things there, and I think the Eiffel Tower pic is great!! I didn't see this swap going on, must have had my eyes shut!! :)ReplyDelete
