I was just about ready to think today was going to suck as much as yesterday, when Big came in the door with a package for me! It was from Australia, from my bud Ms. P!!! I was so excited, I made my way to the closest pair of scissors (not quilting scissors - just in case you wondered) and opened the box. I found not only Vegemite, but TimTams, Fruchocs (apricots and peach covered with chocolate) and a recipe for Aussie Lamington (which has nothing to do with lamb). I was so happy! It was the much needed ray of sunshine in my day/week.
Not too long ago I had questioned Ms. P. on what Vegemite is. She says it is a lovely tasting, healthy spread for your bread. My other friend from Down Below, Marg, disagreed. Marg says it is gross and I should never, ever try it. Well, long story short, Ms. P. asked for my address and sent me some Vegemite (can you get the, "I come from a land down under" song out of your head yet?) Just in case, I had Big stand a few feet away from me to open the jar of Vegemite. (My stomach has been sensitive lately and I wasn't wanting to feel nauseous.) I could still smell the Vegemite from far away. I am saving my tasting of this gift for a time in the near future. My father always said we should try everything once (boy has that gotten me in trouble). My daughter (the Guinea pig) will be home in a couple of weeks and she will try it. She is like Mikey - she likes everything. She is a Veg Head, so it is possible she will love the Vegemite.
As you can see, I tried the TimTam, (somehow my stomach can tolerate sugar - go figure). It is as the package says, "The most irresistible chocolate biscuit." These and the FruChocs will be stashed away somewhere to be brought out only by me!
Ms. P. I want to say that you are really a sweetheart for sending me this wonderful package of goodies from Australia. I promise that I will say Crikey and Strewth while eating my Aussie Lamington (although I don't know what Strewth means - I will say it for you). I am constantly amazed at the good friends I have made on the web. Thank you Ms. P., Marg and everyone else for all the good wishes and thoughts and for being my friend! (Ok, now I am going to go to a corner and cry a little).
