My Weekly Surface Mail.


Considering it is Valentine's Day on Saturday, I thought I would share something romantic this week.

A while ago, I posted a list of answers to questions in a tag. The sixth question prompted me to list my favourite thing and my answer was Package(s).

So what are these packages all about?

It so happens, that there is this amazing man I know, that lives in Ireland. And I guess he thinks I am just a little bit amazing too. Even though we are far apart, he tries to make the distance work in our favor. Most importantly, he makes sure it is as easy on me as it possibly can be.
And to show he thinks of me, he sends me a package, or even two, each week. One parcel will always contain white chocolate. The other, a small gift. Or even a BIG gift. He is so generous.


The fantastic part is that he is able to give me the most fun, beautiful, amusing gifts - he seems to have picked up on what I like and love so easily. The parcels contain anything from jewelry and books to shoes and clothes, and even small, childish and cute things. I guess each week feels like a celebration.

Sniff, sniff - Everyone needs an Irishman to send them such wondrous packages, P! But only you deserve him!

Please stop by my page on Friday, when I shall leave a little package for you on my blog - With pleasure x

Oh, I am SURE you did something right to have this package-sending Irish man in your life. :-)
If you have that he "gets" me feeling, oh my!-he's the ONE for you. (I gues you already know that, huh?)

Betsy said...

How fun! Sounds like the Irishman is quite smitten with you! :)

SarahA said...

The Irish have that old worldly charm of romanticism. If it happens to touch you on your shoulder, don't question it; just embrace it.We all need some of that in our life, now and again.

Diane said...

OK, did you ever find out if the Irishman's brother in on-again or off-again with his girlfriend? Inquiring minds want to know (OK, only ONE inquiring, and exceedingly single, mind... MINE). Do it, woman! ;)

And you know how you always say you're envious but not in the bad way? Yeah... I'm envious... and I'm not putting up the 'not in the bad way' disclaimer ;)

Still love you, though... XO :)

Diane said...

And PS... he thinks you're amazing because he's clearly brilliant. Duh. ;)

Uh - what was that?? There was an odd jumping in my chest just now. It's slightly familiar, but I just can't put my finger on it. It seems like I once felt it...hmmm...15 years ago...hmmm...oh yeah! It's my heart! Man! Between Christmas and this stuff, you're going to do me in, Z! And, thanks for the invite. I might have to take you up on it!! ;) And, does he have a brother? A friend? A garbage collector? Something???

Sorry that your heart is being strained, but you now, you have a big, strong heart - much stronger than you think.;) And yes, you and Diane are both welcome, I have a big spare guest room!;))) Can’t wait.;))
I will ask The Irishman if he knows any suitable garbage collector and get back to you on that one.;))
