"What have you been buying now"

I forgot to go & collect the mail yesterday after all I presumed there would just be more *bills* waiting in the mail box & to be honest here I am NOT the sort to *dance a jig* in pure glee because I received a bill - do you know anyone who does? So this morning my Darlin' goes out to collect the paper & finds the mail sitting in the box (we do not get mail delivered on a Saturday in Australia) so it was yesterdays mail he pulled out. He handed me a white envelope you all know the sort with the little window in the front.... & a small box addressed to me with the comment "what have you been buying now". So I'm standing there racking my brains *have I bought something that I have forgotten about* nothing sprung to mind so replied "I have not bought anything" his reply being "well you must have & forgotten (is possible) or it's something you bought a while ago & has taken awhile to arrive". I gave him my *what you don't believe me* look which really didn't come across all that well because I had a niggling feeling in the back of my mind maybe I had forgotten I bought whatever was tucked away inside the box! Only one thing to do right, open the parcel & prove him wrong! So getting a knife (was wrapped so well, almost as if *someone* didn't want it to be opened) I tore the paper to sheds to find a little box inside. After using the same knife again to cut more cellotape I eagerly opened it to find......


the most gorgeous little cupcake I have ever seen (sorry the photo is so bad but my batteries were running out so had to take the photos real fast). Looking inside the box for a note or whatever *nothing* only to hear a ah uh from my Darlin""you did buy something"! Ok now I admit as each month passes I am getting closer to the big five O but I knew & I mean I KNEW I had not bought a cupcake.... So back to the wrapper went I & although it was in pieces I managed to find out with this lovely came from... Kylie at http://abiteofcountrycupcakes.blogspot.com/ !
To say I was blown away is really putting it mildly I mean to receive this just right out of the blue what can I say......
Well first off a humongous THANK YOU & I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT wouldn't go amiss & this has just shown me yet again what great friends I have made on blogland how generous & kind people can be & how this is just the *icing on the cake* (yes pun intended here) for what to me has been a GREAT week!
So once again I say thank you Kylie (you picked a bad time to get over your busy school holidays lady) & honestly you have to have a look at her pretty pretty cupcakes they really are to die 4....
Hoping you all are having as great a weekend as I am...
Oh & as for the white envelope with the *window* still havn't got around to opening it....

What a dear friend to do such a sweet thing for you. Don't you just hate when you think you've let your cheese slip right off your cracker? I too get very forgetful sometimes but it can be a good thing. Just like your cupcake.
