One item that has not been mentioned elsewhere is the RAK parcel that came from Finnish Lapland, from Muoriska (aka Jaana). The parcel was smothered in the most delightful stamps (butterflies, lilies of the valley…) and the inside was stuffed with…..Chocolate! and not just chocolate but sweeties and tea as well – all packaged up with a delightful card. Thank you very much, Jaana, you really brightened my day.

The one thing not in today’s post was the one item that I am most desperately in need of (of course!) and that is for my Red RAK, which is still waiting to be dispatched.

    What a lot of loverly post! I always much prefer chocolate from “abroad”, especially N europe, it always tastes so much better than ours. Probably the novelty value, but still it is delicious.
