The other day I got two very exciting packages in the post, which I just wanted to share with you.
The first is my Michael J. Sullivan book. I supported his Kickstarter for Age of Death which included the ebook 3 months early, and now I also received the physical copy. It also came with a signed set of bookmarks, and my name is in the book.
This is the second signed book I own, so I am very excited about that. I have also backed the Kickstarter for the sixth book, but only the ebook part of it.
The wonderful Nicole @ Book-Wyrm-Knits hosted a Discworld readalong last year, with a swag bag to win if you joined her. And I won! 😀 😀 😀 The package itself was already amazing:
And then I opened it and I just couldn’t stop smiling for hours… It really came at a perfect time and made my day.
I love all of it soooo much. The Death of Rats now lives on my Pratchett shelf, the bag will definitely be used once we can go outside again. I cannot wait to pick up my books, the bookmark is just beautiful. I don’t really want to use the notebook because it is just a thing of beauty. And the socks… they are amazing but a bit to big for me. Luckily, The Husband has got big feet. And you know what they say about men with big feet…
They wear big socks. We love the package. Thank you so much Nicole!!!
Now that I am thanking people anyway… I have been quite down the last few weeks. But everyone has been so so nice and it really means the world to me/us. Just that you would bother to take some time to leave a nice comment or think of us warms my heart. We have received some lovely messages and people offering to help.
It seems we are all alone in this, but really we are closer together than ever. Most people really are decent. The people we pass by on our few walks all say hi. The neighbour downstairs is a proper asshole, but the one across the street puts post-it notes on her window to say hi to everyone. Our manager will be dropping off his playstation games because I played through all of ours within a week. There are so many initiatives and people helping others in whatever small ways they can.
We are all in this together, and I know it sucks, but I also know we will make it through somehow. Thank you for reminding me of that.
Hoping you are doing well,
