you know when something really exciting happens, something you're so pleased about and you're all on a high? and it's shared with whoever happens to be hanging around at the time? well, something exciting has happened, it came by citylink 10 minutes ago and i've no bugger here to tell. the boys are at school and sam's doing something farmery and i'm bursting with well, you know, excitement. so i'll tell you lot instead. i just got four hugemungus boxes of totem wrapping paper sent to me! all yummy and printed with soy inks on 80% recycled paper - and guess what? it's only printed in a different colour on the other side! so we have a powdery pink teamed with a lovely strong red and a seafoam turquoise paired up with a chartreuse green...drooooool! it's been a joint project between me and alison of the brilliant eco eco, and we've been to-ing and fro-ing for weeks trying to sort it all out (her more than me i have to say) and of course it'll be up in the shop later when i've calmed down.
and when i said i had nobody to tell, that's not quite true - cos there's a new kid on the block, one with four legs and a tail - meet ginge (yes really, after 4 weeks of family discussion the bloody thing's ended up being called ginge) and he is SO cute i can't tell you. i will try very hard not to bore you with pics of him, but it'll be hard so indulge me a little ok?
