Day 331 of 365: Somebunny Wants a Cuddle
I heard a knock at the door shortly after 9 this morning and when I peered down from the open bedroom window I saw a man with red Royal Mail gear. I've learned from experience that if you don't catch a parcel delivery here when they show up (which can be anywhere from 9am to 12pm) that you cannot pick up the parcel until the following business day and by then it is only within a certain small window. Let it be known now that I don't possess that degree of patience.
I signed for the delivery and took it inside for further inspection. I saw it had been sent from Washington DC and it dawned on me that one fabulous Natalie I know (who makes what I imagine to be equally fabulous cupcakes) mentioned something might "not" be on it's way to me. Ignoring the customs declaration slip (as I wanted to be surprised of the contents) I opened the box and brown tissue paper to find this super-soft cuddly, snuggly buddy inside with a card that it was for 'Baby Boy Bennett.'
SQUEEEE!! Isn't he the CUTEST?! I cannot emphasize how SOFT he is! I couldn't quit rubbing his floppy bunny ears! Matt even had a little play by posing the ears into what he called 'G-Force' and 'Rastafarian' bunny-mode, which was quite funny to see.
Something tells me I may have to have a special chat with dear hubby to remind him about sharing once our little bunny is here. And of course a HUGE shout out of THANKS to Natalie and her hubby Jeff for the sweet and thoughtful gift!! xx
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
