However, despite some rather subdued celebrations, I wanted to acknowledge the beautiful handmade cards I received from friends in the UK, who had gone to some effort to make and then send on to me:
From Lisa - a beautiful bee card - it was obviously "buzzing" through the post, as Australian customs felt the need to open the envelope and examine it's beauty!
From Tara - lots of lovely colour and layers. I treasure them both and miss you too. xx
