Look What Arrived in the Post!!

So there I am, trundling wearily in from school, grocery shopping, doing errands, and then waiting for Youngest to finish her after school activities...and guess what is on my door mat?

A parcel from ULLA!
Isn't that just the best surprise to come home to?! All beautifully wrapped in pretty paper, with twirly ribbon and a lovely card...

...and such very useful things inside!
A tote bag, which is Teflon treated to keep it clean and longer-lasting...and a really useful zipper bag, both made from Marimekko fabric, which I just love!

This tote is going to school with me tomorrow, for sure!
And aha! A bar of chocolate from Finland!...and look! Ulla has even sewn on a 'Kotkarankki' label!
How great is that!

Thank you so much, Ulla! I will really enjoy using these bags, and I will think of you often!

And I will really enjoy tasting the chocolate bar too!

Now I need to get back to my sewing table and make the PIF Treats for my People!!

Afterthought: I have a fridge-magnet in my kitchen which says: 'The one thing better than a good friend, is a good friend with chocolate!'
I reckon that makes Ulla one of the BEST!!

Glad to see the gift will be useful! I hope the chocolate will give you energy for the long school days. The bag should make other people notice the advantages of a light fabric bag compared to plastic ones.

Heather, I just dropped in to see what kind of trouble you're getting into on the other side of the world. Figured I was behind as usual in catching up but now I remember that you are counted as among the employed:) Hope your job is going well and you are feeling satisfied if not rich!
