I was in a really grumpy mood one day last week, due to problems with my computer and being worn out by a moody two year old. When I went to check my mailbox I wasn't expecting to find anything other than bills, but to my surprise there was a package for me from Ireland. Well my day brightened up considerably right then and I saved the package to open up later so that I would have something fun to look forward to.
When I got home from work I finally tore into the package, which turned out to be from the Book Blogger Holiday Swap. The blogger who sent it to me was Valentina from Valentina's Room and inside was a beautifully wrapped present that contained a book that I have been wanting to read for ages now and which she says is one of her favorites, The Knife of Never Letting Go. Valentina also included a lovely bookmark which she made herself and which I expect to get a lot of use out of .
So thank you Valentina for this wonderful gift which really made my day. I can't wait to read the book and the bookmark that you gave me is already being used in my current book (which is a big improvement over the spoon that I was using before)
