Thank You ... in English and in Portugese

Hello dear friends ...
We are back home safe and sound ... sun tanned and with batteries recharged ...
Thank you so much for your kind comments, your well wishes ...  and just for being there ... it means a lot 
The day we left ... I received two packages from two lovely blog friends ...
My sweet friend Kirsty sent me this lovely card 


Isn't it beautiful ... I adore it ... 
but that was not all she sent ... take a look at this 


... and this ...


Papers, flowers, embellishment, tags, ribbon, braid, stamps and so much more for my group and I to play with ... Thank You So Much Kirsty ... You have a heart of gold ... I am truly grateful.

I have been so fortunate to have met and made so many friends through the world of blogging ... in truth I was always rubbish at Geography ... probably because my Mum could never afford to take us on holiday except for staying in London with my Grandmother ... we never got to go on school trips to anywhere exotic ... so countries and places were just names to me ... I had family in the USA ... and that was prestige enough ... even though I didn't know one state from the other ... And now I have friends in places all over the world ... what a geography lesson! So much more interesting ... I get to see where you live through the words on your blogs and by your photographs ... When you travel I see more places through your eyes ... When disasters hit ... you show me and I can feel it with you ... I see the beauty and the barren ... all because of you ... 
One of those places I never thought about was Brazil ... I knew they had a brilliant football team ... that they had carnivals ... and the magnificent Sugarloaf Mountain ... and now I have another sweet blog friend .. Jacira ... who actually lives in Brazil! 
And Jacira sent this to me ... 


One of her beautiful delicate cards ... together with these 


.. and a beautiful handwritten note which she translated to English ...
Thank You Jacira ... they are lovely and you are so kind ... 

In Portugese ... 

Eu tenho sido tão afortunado por ter encontrado e fez muitos amigos através do mundo dos blogs ... na verdade eu era sempre o lixo em Geografia ... provavelmente porque a minha mãe nunca poderia dar ao luxo de nos levar de férias, exceto para ficar emLondres com a minha avó ... que nunca chegou a ir em excursões escolares para qualquer lugar exótico ... para que os países e lugares foram apenas nomes para mim ...Eu tinha família nos EUA ... e isso foi o suficiente prestígio ... mesmo que eu não sabia que um estado do outro ... E agora eu tenho amigos em lugares de todo o mundo ... o que é uma aula de geografia! ... Muito mais interessante Eu começo a ver onde você viveatravés das palavras em seus blogs e por suas fotografias ... Quando você viaja vejomais lugares através dos seus olhos ... Quando desastres hit ... você me mostrar e euposso senti-lo com você ... Eu vejo a beleza ea estéril ... tudo por causa de você ...
Um desses lugares que eu nunca pensei foi o Brasil ... Eu sabia que eles tinham uma equipa de futebol brilhante ... que tinham carnavais ... eo Pão de Açúcar magníficas ... e agora eu tenho um outro amigo do blog doce .. Jacira ... que realmente vive no Brasil!
Jacira e enviou isto para mim ...
Um de seus belos cartões delicada ... juntamente com estes
.. e uma bela nota manuscrita que ela traduzida para Inglês ...
Obrigado Jacira ... eles são lindos e você é tão gentil ...
Tenha um dia maravilhoso meus amigos ...

Have a wonderful day my friends

Glad the package arrived, nothing much, just a little for your club night, you are a sweet heart yourself to devoted your time and love for the group! : )

Hi Ros, What lovely goodies you received. I am glad you got home safely from your vacation. We visited Brazil on our R&R when we lived in Nigeria. I kept trying to speak Italian to the waiters and they would just look at me. I knew they were speaking Portuguese, but I could not get the hang of it. Difficult language! Have a great day.
