A mail post

Yay my exams are over and now I have 3 months off to do as I please. I still have to go to work for four hours a day but I have the whole afternoon to be a lady of leisure. Today I spent my time going for a walk, doing some gardening and am in the middle of making this delicious pumpkin soup. This is honestly the best pumpkin soup I have ever made so I recommend you try it.

I was hesitant to do a mail post because it is all incoming and no outgoing but once this is posted I am going to work on a few letters :-)

A lovely letter and mixed CD from Tillie, I love getting new music to listen too.

A wonderful letter from Shona.

From the gorgeous Tiffany

A first letter from Aaron, my first male penpal :-)

From Caiti with some great mail tags.

A gorgeous postcard from Fabi from her recent holiday.

More wonderful letters from Melody, Helen, Michael and Mary Grace.

I recently won a giveaway from the wonderful Carly at A girl and her blog and it could not be anymore perfect - two tickets to the Sex and the City Tour in New York. Luckily they never expire so hopefully when I go overseas at the end of next year I will get to use them, New York is like my dream destination, I cant wait to get there one day. Thankyou so much Carly!
Have you seen Sex and the City yet? It doesn't come out here till next week, I cant wait!

I ordered this gorgeous print from Anna at Muchlove and it arrived today. Her brother and herself have started a new store, Dahliaville and the prints are just gorgeous. I am already in the process of ordering another one :-)

I am so glad to be back to blogging, I have definitely missed it!
