I have been RIDICULOUSLY spoilt with beautiful thoughtful gifts from my friends this week, gorgeous hampers of goodies to keep me moisturised, well read and cosy in hospital, candles, a hospital iTunes playlist and the loveliest bracelet signifying transition! I’m so very humbled..
The absolute generosity and thoughtfulness has been overwhelming, late yesterday afternoon Stella’s best friend’s mum popped over with a Peter Alexander bag in tow. Look at me now.. nightie issues sorted (thanks Joe💕)
Earlier this week my beautiful SIL Leanne surprised me at a family dinner with this gorgeous idea..
The happiness jar❤️
The jar is filled with a whole lot of scratchies (so many I may actually win something), chocolates, positive affirmations and random flashing articles! It came with blank paper to allow family and friends to write little messages to me.
The idea being that while I’m in hospital (and beyond) it is my grown-up lucky dip – to call on some happiness as necessary! I love it. I’ll be like a kid in a lolly shop everyday.
At the moment the large majority of notes are from Lilli and Stella.. they are very keen for me not to look at any until I am in hospital.
However..today as I wandered past I couldn’t help myself and threw my hand down deep into the jar pulling out this little number.
Honestly the beautiful thoughtful words and sentiments received from family, friends and strangers alike this past week has been mind blowing.
Thank you all.
I will see you on the other side x
