Wow! I can't believe it!
I just walked by the front counter at work and there was this box... for me... from Yorkshire! The fruitcake arrived!
And not just fruitcake.... an ENTIRE fruitcase! (Geez, girl, hope there's some left for that family of yours!)
And there was Yorkshire tea, too! (That does sound interesting, I must say.)
Thank you soooooo much!
Our office assistant, Olga, just went to Tim Horton's for coffee (it's a Canadian thing... Tim Horton's coffee... ) when I saw the box, so we shared a slice when she got back.
Sorry... I just couldn't wait for Christmas. There's snow on the ground today and it's cold... so, it feels like Christmas!
We'll have to try the tea later.... (with another slice!)
OH - MY - GOD!
This is DI-vine!
People either love fruitcake or they hate it. I love it. (Probably because of my British blood?) But whatever... who cares...
I'm in ECSTASY (and not the kind that you buy off the street, either).
Good thing I just spent an hour on the bike at the gym. If I don't put this cake away, I'll have to spend an entire DAY over there... and I'm too busy for that! I had to get up at 6:00 a.m. just to make time to work out today... ughh!
Anyway... I'm thrilled... This is too cool... You meet people blogging and next thing you know, you're getting spoiled with goodies in the mail. (I'll have to see if I can find something appropriate to send over your way...)
This is my first off-line exchange with a blogger who wasn't someone I already knew. And I'm delighted. (Can you tell????)
People often ask me, "Who are all those people who leave comments on your blog?" Heaven knows, most of my "real time" friends and family don't leave comments (that is... unless they're bloggers, too!)
So, I usually respond, "Other bloggers."
Now I can say that sometimes, "other bloggers" are not just anonymous far away people who share comments.... but every now and then there's a special one who shares something from the heart.
Thanks again, ipodmomma! You rock!
