I was painting the bathroom when the postman knocked, so OH took the parcel and I waited till I wasn't paint-splattered before I opened it. What a good thing I did, as I couldn't have finished the paint job with tears in my eyes. A superbly generous Waterstones voucher-card, a lovely handbag-sized notebook, and CHOCOLATE!!

Thank you, in the order your names appear on the card, Baggy, dora, seaview, C2, Carol, Liz, ana, Wilts, Heather, smaug, Mutley, Claudia, Tiny Nell and Phots Moll.

You are all wonderful - friends I have never seen but who are closer than many people I see every day - but you have presented me with a dilemma. Two, in fact. Deciding which chocolate to open first, and wondering which section of Waterstones to start at.

Thank you, darlings, and I love you all. *flings arms wide and dances around the room*

  • Ah, typing this is making me emotional. This confirms what I've known for years: talkback is a wonderful community of virtual friends. I've had books and magazines posted to me by members, out of sheer generosity and friendship so it was lovely to have the opportunity to 'pay it forward'.
    Enjoy the gifts, Lizy.
