Some days start off well and go downhill from there. Other days, start off a bit shakily and then just get better and better. Yesterday was one of those days.
Lack of sleep. Not enough caffeine in my coffee. Icy fingers. I drooped over my keyboard trying to find my flow for the translation work I was doing. Suddenly, it was lunch time. Had I fallen asleep or was I so into my work bubble that the morning just disappeared?
I shuffled outside to fetch the post. A lone, mysterious and very green parcel was lying in the postbox. And it was addressed to me! With excited fingers, I tore it open and…
… inside I discovered…
A lovely blueberry blue hat hand-crotcheted by none other than blog pal Blue. Look at the handicraft! So lacy, so snug! I have to say that this really made my day! And to make things even better, I got a hand-written letter. It’s not everyday you actually get to see handwriting these days…
In her letter, Blue says that if I don’t like the hat, then I can use it as a lamp shade, a tea cozy or a toy for the dog. Quick as a flash, the dog – who had been reading the letter over my shoulder – grabbed the hat and ran off with it.
Back away, hairy boy! Paws. off. my. hat.
Mmm… I can see that there are going to be some ownership issues here!
However, the dog gave in gracefully and handed over the hat in return for hundreds lots of treats.
Only one thing left to do: try on the hat! A perfect fit! And because the dog doesn’t have opposable thumbs, you’ll have to excuse the quality of the picture he took.
I love my new hat! And no – it doesn’t make me look like a blueberry… does it?
