This post is long overdue - forgive me!
Eileen and I swapped a few cards back in the Spring. She wanted to send a thank you to my kids for a parcel I had sent her. Well, what a parcel it was!!!
I don't think the picture does it any justice it was such a lovely treat and surprise for all of us. For my daughter she sent a teddy bear and silly bandz, for my son a school set - ruler, pencil case, eraser, etc and a carry bag. For both kids a little double decker bus figurine, stickers, British chocolate (always a fave in this house), pencils and a collection of small British coins. Most things had either the Union Jack or something distinctly British and they were just thrilled. I too was the lucky recipient of a carry bag from Scotland, a beautiful bookmark, notepad and pen and LOTS of fabulous postcards. I am going to post a few here and do them over a few posts to keep the themes somewhat together.
Such a wonderful and generous lady! My kids refer to Eileen as their fairy godmother. When you see someone reaching out to you in such a kind and somewhat unexpected way I think that fits her perfectly!!!
These cards are various ones I am going to guess that she picked up in London when she attended the Postcrossing meet-up. A great variety of a wonderful city.
