Aren't some of our fellow humans lovely?
I regularly visit and post on the popular website, Money Saving Expert, a mine of information on everything money-saving under the sun. It's full of friendly and knowledgable people who can advise or just chat if you've got time to kill.
The other day a lady named Kassi messaged me through the site. We'd never met but she was a regular visitor to my blog largely through a mutual love of VW Campers. When she'd last visited her Mum in Canada she'd been given a dress from her 1970's hippy past. Kassi hadn't worn the dress as much as she'd hoped and rather than consign it to her daughter's dressing-up box she offered to send it my way.
I'm so glad she did, the frock arrived on Saturday morning and isn't it a beauty?
..... the label alone is a joy to behold.
Kassi's mum, Brenda sounds a fantastic person, whilst pregnant with her she attempted to hitch-hike to Woodstock but severe morning sickness made her turn back. Apparently she's rather like Eddy from Ab Fab.
I'm wearing a copper and turquoise pendant and matching wrist cuff an old boyfriend of my Mum's brought back from Canada in the early 1960's.
Thanks so much, Kassi! I'm on the lookout for something lovely to repay your generosity.
