You know how exciting it is to get a package in the mail...? (Even when you're the one that paid for that lovely bundle of fabric/books/bed linen/organic moisturiser/ipad/or whatever it is.) Or how nice it is to receive a present on your birthday? But even more exciting are surprise gifts...
To unexpectedly receive something thoughtful from a kind-hearted person just gives me that wonderfully happy glow of what a good place the world can be and how wonderfully lucky I am! And, of course, it makes me want to do nice things for all the people around me and share all the good karma. :)
In the past couple of weeks I've been the recipient of several unexpected packages...
First was the appearance of a brown paper bag on my office desk containing fresh, homegrown lemongrass, limes and kaffir lime leaves, and cubes of palm sugar - not the easiest of things to come by when you live in rural Victoria. A lovely friend, who I don't know well but is a gorgeous person, had put together this little curry pack for me after I'd tasted her deliciously fragrant thai green curry at a recent gathering. What a nice thing to do! (And yes, I made a rather tasty curry myself last week - having fresh ingredients makes all the difference!)
A day or two later I received an email from cityhippyfarmgirl Brydie to say that I'd won some lovely teas in her blog giveaway. Cool! I never win anything so that was rather exciting!
And this sweet little teapot... well that was gifted to me by the lovely lady who has the shop full of vintage goods and collectables next door to mine!
It's nice to know the world is full of such good and generous people! :)
