There was much robust excitement chez Castle Greysquirrel yesterday morning when Nigel found a parcel, addressed us all in the porch.
And, it didn’t take too much forensic examination to work out that it had been sent by Dianne, our very, very special friend from sunny and far away Florida.
There were cards for all the family, which we opened first and I put on our festive mantle for all to admire ….. and there were presents …..we let Nigel open his first …… otherwise he would have exploded!
His parcel was very romantically wrapped in tissue paper with bird stickers and tied with string ……
….. and inside was the most exquisite Easter Bunny t-shirt from Nigel’s boutique of choice, which he likes to call “Monsieur at Build A Bear”, and although it was a little uncouth, we allowed Nigel to break the rules of the kitchen and let him change at the table or else there would have been no doing with him …… and I have to admit, he did look everso cute!
There was a basket of Easter goodies for us to share of fluffy chicks and chocolate bunnies and mini frogs …..
….. a most delicate sugar egg ….. which when you looked inside was a tiny chick sitting on its nest, we had never seen anything like it ever before and we were all totally enchanted …….
…… but though it could be regarded as a festive comestible it would certainly not to be scrutinised by our usual Richter Scale of Noms …. this was a delicacy not to be eaten but treasured.
THANK YOU Dianne ….. this was a very special parcel, which we all cherished and made us feel very blessed in a Hello magazine type way that we have such lovely friends from all over the world, who we love very much xxxxx HAPPY EASTER
