At the weekend I received a fantastic parcel of vicious-chicken-themed goodness from Working Mom Knits...
In case you can't see (apologies for the dodgy camera-work), there was a wind-up chicken... which lays eggs as it wanders along! And there was also a bag of spare 'eggs', and a box of little marshmallow chicken-ettes, some of which might have come to a bit of a sticky end already (they were very tasty).
So, thanks so much WMK!! I really enjoyed my chickeny parcel - you're very kind :o) I promise to send you a little something in return soon. And yes, I know I've been saying that for weeks now... sorry. The Post Office is definitely on my agenda for this week though. Probably. Possibly.
Moving swiftly on, another exciting thing popped through my doorbox today - double-sided monkey coasters! Hurrah!
Did I mention how much I love that monkey? And his tea? Oh, I did? OK, then :o)
And just while we're on the subject of that monkey, if you happen to like him as much as I do*, then you might like to look at this site, which is very entertaining and contains some hugely exciting news - described more fully in this press release. And if that wasn't enough for you, there's also this:

However, on a final, cheerier note, I've just discovered these - and I really think I might need a pair....
*This may not actually be possible, because I will so fight you for the role of biggest fan... but I'm willing to let you like him nearly as much as I do ;o)
