mail makes day (times four)

I was having a bit of a rubbish day yesterday. It all began with a morning phone call to tell me I had to go to work on my day off (well, day on call). Boo! Not only that, but could I work 2pm till midnight. Double boo! So it was perfect timing for the postman to arrive with my first fun parcel in ages. Inside was this beautifully tied up little parcel. I was itching to see what was inside, but managed to restrain myself long enough to get my camera and snap a photo of the ingenious packaging. What a great use of a button, huh?
Look what was inside! A Human Bean made by Stuffed Nonsense! Doesn't it look all snug as a big in a rug in its little box?
I didn't realise how teeny these little guys were. Eep! This one (and many others) were made using the fabric Bex and El (a.k.a. Stuffed Nonsense) won in my Girls' Day giveaway, so they sent me my very own bean as a little thank you. That was really not necessary, but very nice nonetheless! It really did brighten my day. Thank you, ladies :)

But the lovely mail (real and virtual) doesn't stop there. While I was at work last night, I got a lovely long email from an old friend of mine. This morning I got a packet of tasty sweeties in the post from my sister. This afternoon I got another email from another long-lost friend who had stumbled across this blog and contacted me via etsy. All these things have made me very happy indeed. When I next get a day off from the subtitling mine, I will be composing replies, I promise!


  1. I'm very glad you liked her, it seemed only fair that you should have one!

  2. How sweet is that human bean?? Just the thing to make you smile after a tricky day!!

  3. Totally! I have decided to name my bean Beryl. Beryl the bean :)


Hello! I'm sorry that I've had to turn on the word verification feature again, but my inbox was being flooded with very dull spam. Genuine comments always brighten my day though, so thank you for taking the time to leave one :)
