You might have seen in the background of some of my pictures my radio. When our friend Em came over from Germany a couple of years ago this was her gift, she'd carried it over in her hand luggage. Her Dad repairs and refurbishes old radios etc as a hobby and he wanted to give one to us.
On Friday a friend for the radio turned up, again refurbished by Em's Dad and sent to us with love.
A record player! This model was produced between 1967-69 so it's the perfect age for our house (built 1968). The design is gorgeous and everything is just delightful, and of course it works beautifully.
It's a perfect fit too, we couldn't have asked for more. Yet more was what we got! When you're sending something delicate you have to pack things carefully and what is better packaging material than orange napkins and food?
Savoury treats for us and the buns
chewy sweets, including some unicorn jellies! Biscuits (they're like Rich Tea biscuits with a chocolate filling) and of course my absolute favourite Vego bars, there were four but we gave one to my brother who was very happy to receive it.
It looks like a little rejig of the menu plan is in order as I can't wait to try the mushroom sauce.
