I love receiving parcels

Today, we received a parcel.  It was exciting as we have been waiting for it.  I managed to contain myself and eat some lunch before I opened the box.  Inside were a precious cargo of books which complete our collection of 'Laura and Mary' books.  I can't wait to read them as a family.  We read books together and my husband and I take turns in choosing the books.  'Silver Lake' needs finishing up then my husband gets his turn (Dr DooLittle) and we can then start working through the rest of them. 

I collected the girls from school and we spent the nearly 10 minute walk home playing a 'Guess what the parcel' is game.  They didn't guess but were as excited as I was when they saw the contents of the box.

If anyone has recommendations of any good family books then please let me know.

And thanks to my friend who so kindly gave us this lovely present.  All 4 of us (and that includes my husband) can't wait to find out what happens.  Maybe, one day (Mr T-like) I will get on a plane and visit the museums etc connected with these books.

Write again Masked Sparrow :) I love receiving packages also! I am currently 'set' to receive a bread-maker paddle because whilst sitting on the counter to dry~ said gadget was mysteriously lost. However, I fear they cannot make it up to us in our snow.
