Making little gifts is great!


I spent the morning making a couple of Christmas gifts. This one I made for the postman. He knows that I have trouble walking and carrying things and very often there will be a knock on my door and there he is, personally delivering my mail. This goes way above his job description as we have the little post boxes at the end of our street and that is where we collect our mail. He doesn't have to do this but I am so thankful that he will bring the heavier parcels to my door and I wanted to show my appreciation.




This gift is for Nicole. She is the lady that comes to the house every other week to do some housecleaning for us. She also does more than required and has been known to change a lightbulb or take my recyclables to the end of the driveway for us. Not only does Nicole make my house shiny and clean, she is pleasant company and chats away while working. Makes Tuesday afternoons very pleasant. This is my way of saying thank you to two of my favourite people.
