Dearest Alex of Odd Socks and Pretty Frocks sent me a Christmas Pom Pom necklace. In the midst of snow and no deliveries; whilst people couldn't fly anywhere or travel even a mile without hardship, a pom pom necklace that was posted from Liverpool on one day arrived the next day in South London.
Then on Christmas Eve morning, a gorgeous parcel arrived from Queen Marie of Kingdom of Style, again I was given much Christmas cheer. A fabulous Christmas necklace and an addition for my tree. I also had my lovely belated birthday pressies but I'm keeping those to myself.
How wonderful is the blogosphere. It defies modernity in its old fashioned values of correspondence and yet it is in its very essence of now. Receiving my lovely gifts was pure Dickens and Austen brought alive in the 21st century. All hail blogging and have a wonderful festive time whether you celebrate Christmas or not.
