Pause for Lent and a really BIG thank you!

Firstly, if you're here to "pause" you're in the wrong place! I have two blogs, but as this one is a Google blog people get diverted here from the comments. I have my "thoughts" blog over at The View from the Teapot. I hope to see you there.

Here, though, I want to say a big Thank You to Ang from Tracing Rainbows for the lovely, lovely Giveaway gift that I received. I'm afraid I had ripped open the envelope before I thought of my blogging friends, and taking photos, but then I slowed down and savoured my gift.
Millie shows some interest in my present, sitting on top of the bookcase.
Inside there was a handtowel, embroidered with my name - there's posh! Three cookery booklet/magazines - I'll have to try to incorporate the recipes into my River Cottage Experiment as well! A lovely little coaster for my coffee cup, which will be in my study as soon as I remember to bring it upstairs. A tube of shower gel - useful for travelling, and some sticky, shiny stars, which will be used in crafting.

A selection of postcards was also included, which I will delight in using for one of my "Lenten disciplines" (see my PiL post for more details of that)
and - oh, aren't I lucky!? - a book of poems and a beautiful bookmark. The bookmark is already in use, but I do fear for its safety from the Very Bad Kittens who love beady, pretty things. I have flicked through the poetry book, and already found one poem I'd like to share with you, but I'm sure the others will be equally thought provoking.
So, all I can say to Ang, is a heart felt

for your generosity. I feel very blessed.


  1. Its a pleasure, Alison - so glad you are enjoying your parcel! Lenten Blessings xx

  2. Call me slow, but I just made the connection to the teapot blog! Loved your post there.
    Millie is so sweet looking. Scratch behind her ears for me!

  3. Thank you for your comment on my blog. It always amazes me how many people have a connection to a place - the World really is a small place. Love the photo of your cat! I think there's something special about tabby cats.
