You may know or not know that my lovely friend Maggie B over at Finding Myself decided to have a little give away. Maggie has been learning to knit, and to be quite honest, I think she is a bit of a natural. To be even more honest, I suspect that she could probably make herself a little income from selling some of the things she knits!
Anyway, Maggie decided to have a give away of one of her knitted headbands which are so cool and ideal for me as someone who's head gets way too hot wearing a full hat in the cold. In order to enter, you had to say what it was that you liked most about the winter. This was easy for me, because winter has always been the time of year when my family gets together for Christmas. In the UK the weather is always freezing in winter, and on Christmas Day we all wrap up warm and head of out for a mammoth family walk. Hopefully we find a pub at a halfway point and we can all have a drink and warm by a cosy pub fire before continuing on our walk. They are magical times - everyone gets on and there is this kind of winter peace that somehow gets to us all.
I am digressing though, which is not good because I want to get to my point - which is....
Having won Maggie's wonderful give away - our postie delivered a parcel this morning that could only have been from one person - Maggie!
I took some photos so I could share with you :-)
