parcels and tags

A wonderful parcel was delivered to me at work yesterday, and I was itching to open it but had to wait all day until I got home. And look at what was inside, a stock replenishment for my pile of felt which I bought from my fantastic sister over at paper-and-string . I now need to sort out and tidy all my felt as it is taking over! And, I've been tagged! By the amazing little byrd , click here , to check out her answers, here are mine: 1. What was I doing 10 years ago? Ten years ago I was living in Stratford-upon-Avon in this little cottage with Stuart. I was working in Oxford and had a 90 mile round trip each day which included 3 miles on my bike. It makes me tired just remembering! 2. What are 5 things on my to-do list for today? Pick up the car from the garage Listen to Holly practice her reading Sort out things to take in for the school summer fair Photograph my two new items Sort out my felt pile (urgent!) 3. Snacks I enjoy Chocolate Nuts, seeds and raisins Cereal Chocolate(!) 4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire Pay off my mortgage and all the families, go on a wonderful holiday (or two) and have at least one lie-in a week. And make more time to create things than I have at the moment! 5. Places I have lived before Plymouth, Exeter, Stratford-upon-Avon, Birmingham, now in London. Now I am not going to tag anyone in particular, but if you feel like sharing then consider yourself tagged! And don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already, see this post for a chance to win! : )

Stratford-upon-Avon is BEAUTIFUL! I had tea and crumpets in one of the tea shops there when I was in England ages ago :)

Sigh.... I loved Oxford when I visited years ago... (to keep me feeling sentimental, I like to watch Inspector Morse!).

Thanks for sharing! Your felt looks scrumptious. I'm envisioning wonderful Picciolo-esque things!

I love the very, very English sounding name Stratford-upon-Avon... but that commute sounds horrible. Glad you're in London now.
