Miss you very much , you trill in a Lily Allen kind of way, but then you notice a big package on your stoop.
And it has your name and address on it and the sender is none other than Shelley?
And you hoist up the box and open the door and watch all the critters leap out and scatter about the yard while you plug in the space heater and against all advice turn on the oven to heat up the kitchen.
And then and only then do you grab a knife and slip the package open to find another box wrapped with a gold ribbon. And under the ribbon is a lovely note full of all the reasons Shelly saw fit to send the most beautiful, Wedgwood green Majolica compote in the sunflower pattern.
Which goes beautifully with my green Wedgwood Majolica plates in the sunflower pattern.
And now sits in a place of honor in the middle of the table holding a pomegranate.
I'm pretty sure it will feature in many upcoming posts holding a little bit of this or a lot of that.
I'm also pretty sure my heart will remain full of love and thanks for Shelly's presence in my life and now on my table.
Welcome and thank you again. And again.
