Two Nice Surprises in the Post

Yesterday I recieved a lovely gift from Tash of VinatagePretty for being her 1000th poster!
A pretty crochet brooch, rose soap and a cute fizz cupcake for the bath. Then two postcards from England. One of Newcastle and the other The Angel of the North. That was cool because I sat at the feet of that huge statue 9 years ago :)
Hugs and thanks to Tash...

Then today I recieved another from Ally after having my name as one of the ones drawn at her blog! Is it Christmas? LOL Look at the pretty baby bonnet all done from a delicate hanky and a pretty write up to go with it. This is being put away for whenever I need something special for a baby shower. And all these teas! Yum. White Blueberry, Vanilla creme, Strawberry kiss,Green Cocomint, Egyptian Chamomile and Apple Harvest. Thanks and hugs to you too Ally!

Day 5 of no ciggy`s. A few times a day I have a craving but so far so good. I`ve been able to move through it. One would sure taste good though. But then I think of how worried I was and so far that`s stopped me.
I need to post a garden meme soon, but just haven`t had the time for much here with summer things and a slow connection makes it hard to get anything loaded sometimes. I`ve been to blogs where things just won`t even load at times. Frustrating! I`m now 3 posts behind in visiting all your comments :( Thanks so much for all the well wishes and stories.
As soon as I get some time I`m visiting all you guys!
Have a great weekend.

Ahhh Tea ... it's summer - time to chill and enjoy the warm weather not worry about being behind in blogging! We'll all still be here! I see you will have plenty of tea to enjoy but maybe it is really Margaritas-in-the-garden time!! Wishing you strength to continue your resolve to kick the habit!

lol giving up smoking, is probably one of the best things you'll ever do - and I smoke too.

But hey there is so much to give up so much we don't need, but nothing else fills our lungs, takes our breath away or makes us smell like an ashtray, quite like old cigarrette smoke does

All the best
