This morning a beautifully wrapped package arrived and inside was a lovely floral round box. Inside, wrapped in a soft, pink blankie was a beautiful, little darling puppy. She is my swap bear from Ali (Lovethosebears). She is made from alpaca, with gorgeous, shaded black eyes and a fimo nose. She is wearing a lovely diamonte necklace. Ali also popped a lovely porcelain thimble with polar bear cubs on it into the packaging. I am so thrilled!
Thank you so much Ali. I will treasure her. I have called her Jewel. I think she's gorgeous!
I've had a bit of a rough start to the year. My darling Dad, aged 87 is in hospital and not very well, so this has cheered me up no end.
Dear Sue, I am so pleased that this little pup has cheered you up during a very worrying time for you. Jewel is such a pretty name for her. I am a true believer that things are meant for a purpose and my extremely slow progress of her must have been so that she arrived to you at exactly the time you needed her. You have been a lovely, patient and talented lady to swap with and I am so pleased that we were paired up together. :hug:
Sending you lots of hugs and my thoughts are with you and your family.

Thank you to everyone for your kind thoughts and wishes. I know I'm very lucky to still have my Dad, but he is always in my thoughts and it is difficult to focus on anything else at the moment. He is getting excellent treatment in hospital. Thank God for the NHS, family, teddy bears and puppies!
