SOSF Christmas exchange - thanks

Here is my package from the lovely Helen:



Check out the immense* Edward Gorey wrapping paper, and the "sand dollar" - I've never seen one of those before. Apparently, according to t'interwb, they're "echinoderms (a type of invertebrate), spiny-skinned animals that live on the sea floor." Cool.

This fat, red fishy is my favourite; he's carved from wood and hand-painted:



Many, many thanks for my wonderful gift, Helen. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

*apologies for the use of "immense", in this instance meaning "amazing" or "brilliant". I've been hanging around teenagers too long.

I'm so glad you got your package and that you liked it. I was beginning to get worried about their trip across the pond :)
