Yesterday I received a parcel from the delightful Alex stuffed full of clothes for Owen, passed down from Toby Owen (my future son in law). I recently did the same for Jen with some old clothes of Matilda's for my future daughter in law, Margot Soleil. I love the idea of all these practically unworn baby clothes circling the globe, being shared and living different lives.
I also received a parcel from the lovely Nao with some nice new jammies for me to take into hospital when I have my operation. How thoughtful.
Both of you.
These kinds of thoughtful gestures always give me a warm glow inside, like drinking a pint in an english pub garden after a day's walking in the autumn sunshine.
