Today had its ups and downs. I rose in a fairly upbeat mood, but unfortunately a few of my kids woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning and by lunchtime they had pretty well dragged me down to their level.
All of this turned around, however, after the mail came. Una received an anxiously awaited letter from one of her sweet pen pals,
Sebastian received the latest issue of the Lego magazine, much to the elation of all the boys,
And I received a package with sheets of felt in a pretty array of pinks, from which I hope to make Gemma a birthday crown.
Gemma didn't get anything in the mail, but was in a pretty good mood all day nevertheless.
Don't you just love a good mail day?
