I mentioned last night that I wanted to tell you how touched I’ve been by my colleagues this week. As I explained on Monday, I’ve not been on top form, healthwise, since last Tuesday. It has been a particularly busy couple of weeks, with projects and events that I couldn’t miss for illness, and deadlines that had to be hit without question. My colleagues seemed to pick up on just how much I was struggling, and plied me with tea and offers of help accordingly. Lovely Sarah even brought in homemade beef broth to help feed me up! And then, yesterday, they organised a little pre-birthday treat. Maddi baked a divine carrot cake, and they presented me with a gift:
Perfect present picking by the lovely Charlie!
Merino and mohair, made in Britain, green & cream dogtooth – it is soft and warm and OH so pretty! I love it!
I was also given a little gift by Zoë at our club meetup. She had made me one of her fabulous emery-sand-filled strawberry pin cushions, as well as some divine rose creams – my favourites! And she gave me a beautiful embellishments kit – pretty ribbons and buttons:
Tomorrow, on my actual birthday, I have a day’s leave. So, I’ll be having a very lazy day, taking some time to actually look after myself, and having lunch at Ame Soeur with Kate & Evie! I’m really looking forward to it!
