Oh dear, I know when the pain is very bad.... I have just realised it is then that I go on a bit of a spending spree! Oh dear... It must have been such the other week before I had my lidocaine infusion as I have had not one, but two packages arrive for me this week! The one yesterday was a bit of a surprise as I wasn't expecting it yet and had gone down the road to send some parcels and do some banking. When I got home there was a box waiting for me on our front porch.
I know I've done a box opening sequence before, but can I find it on my blog to refer back to? Of course I can't, so I can only surmise that I forgot to actually post the pictures or I accidentally deleted it at some stage. I will have to repost the photos some time... Anyway onwards and upwards as they say.
There was movement in the box and it split open...
Amber and April hear something and go to investigate.
What's going on in there? I don't know, says April, but I'm a bit scared.
Oh my goodness! Will you look at that, a hand is coming out!
Oh and a leg!
For goodness sake, don't just stand there gawping, hold the box open so I can get out please.
That's better, thank you.
Amber and April hold the lid open while looking into the box wondering who is in there.
Much easier to get out of the box without the lid falling back down on me each time
April holds out her hand as she moves to the front of the box, recognising that it was her doing the same thing the other week.
Thank you, says the newcomer as she reaches out her hand to grab hold of April's.
Oh, are you going to be staying with us? Mum mentioned something about someone coming on holiday for a little while, but I didn't think it was yet... Amber asks.
April looks on with concern and puts her arm around the girl who looks rather unsteady on her feet.
I think...I hope...well...I think I am supposed to be your new sister...
Oh really?! Amber and April both move in closer putting their arms around their new sister.
Mum didn't mention we were getting a new sister! She certainly kept that quiet!
Well I am you know! The new girl says in a slightly bolder tone, with more confidence than she felt.
She certainly looks rather dishevelled after her long trip from the United States. Although I think I can detect a slight stubborn streak about her.
Right young lady, says Mum as she comes along and swoops her up. You need a jolly good bath and hair wash!
Not looking too impressed after the whole ordeal. Not only has she been tossed around in a box for the last week or so, she has been washed, scrubbed and wrapped up in a towel.... How is she going to cope with the trauma?
Well, with all the confidence she can muster I believe, as she poses for a photo after her hair has dried and a dress has been found for her to wear until her special welcome home dress has been made.
Certainly your hair looks much prettier now and isn't all tangled and sticky.
Welcome to your new home Saffron!
In the meantime Mum is frantically working out what she can sell! Lots of figures, adding up,subtracting and scheming is going on.
