Lucky lucky me!

Oh how bad have I been? Three more skeins of Posh Sophia for Tipsy. Three. Yes, I know, I'm greedy, but Dee has this effect on me! But look at that box that Bartholomew is sitting on. Not a Posh Yarn Pink Package. Oh no. Something very different.


Vera has arrived everyone! Monkee maker did not shoot her after all. She has arrived safe and well, just a tad hungry and thirsty.


Tucking in to the Minstrels - I offered her fresh bananas , but no, like all intelligent females, she opted for the chocolates instead. And as to the Stella? No thank-you very much, this lady is all about class, er sorry - Class. It must be something to do with arriving in the post with the Posh Yarn. She took one look at the champagne and instantly went for that instead. Note that Bartholomew is reaching out for chocolate too. She's proving a very considerate nanny, as she only let him have one - mustn't rot those baby teeth now must we?


Vera loved climbing up into the Stash Basket. She's less keen on the 2 chameleons (sat on those) but is getting on very well with all the rabbits.

Now just how lucky am I? Thank-you so much Monkee Maker, she is wonderful and is fitting right in here. When I go back to work this afternoon, I dread to think the escapades she'll be getting up to. Might even have to take her in to school one day, I could do with an extra pair of hands...

And enclosed with the package is a square made of knit to go on Oliver's Blanket. Many, many thanks. With all this goodness happening, I can only think that I'll be in a good mood for the rest of the day. Or at least until I get back to school!

I suppose that'll be a Tartan Kilt Bartholomew is wearing. Lucky you on all counts.

Chocolate, champagne, an adoptive bunny family, AND a snuggle in the stash basket? Vera, you are one lucky monkee!

Monkee Maker said...

Ha ha, looks like Vera's botty may be a tad large for that stash basket ..... maybe you need to get a BIGGER one - especially with all that extra stash you keep buying ;)

Glad she got there safe and sound and ah yes, I taught her well on the chocolate front!

Isn't it great when the post comes to cheer your day - mine was the fact that they increased my credit limit and amazon didn't charge me extra delivery for returning something. Sometimes you win.
Vera is gorgeous!!

I'm glad Vera made it safely to your house, she looks very much at home with your stash, chocolate and champagne, she has good taste.
