I picked up a package from the Royal Mail depot in Llanbadarn today. Early morning golf means missing the post and it couldn’t have been our usual postman. If it had been he would have left a message, schlepped up to the shed at the top of the garden, struggled with the fastening contraption on the door and popped the package in a plant pot!
Not a very glamorous building is it? Not nearly as attractive as the 1901 (only just ER not VR) Post Office building in Great Darkgate Street in town.
Well whatever the building looks like as soon as I saw the blue plastic package excitement mounted because I knew exactly what was inside. I didn’t even get as far as the car (here’s a place where you can park right outside) before ripping it open to feast my eyes on the colours inside.
The whole range of playful spottiness – fifteen of them altogether – ‘Flurry’ from Dashwood studios and ordered from Simply Solids online fabric shop on Saturday. I think this lovely simple range caught my attention in LPQ magazine this month and when I searched for them online …. well as I said, irresistible.
I don’t think these are going to sit in my stash for very long, in fact I’ve already started imagining a summer table topper for the kitchen.
