I had a lovely surprise from Trina in the post yesterday, which was even more surprising as I couldn’t figure out who it was from! It must have been cloaked in fairy magic!
A fairy door and a Martenitsa.
Being nicely photo bombed by a tie fighter in the pic above! The fairy door has been placed on my bookshelf for now, my reasoning being fairies will like browsing through the pages of my books as much as I do.
A Martenitsa is a good luck charm worn in March, Bulgarian in origin, I had never heard of one before, so I will have to do some reading up on it! Thanks Trina! 🙂
So that was yesterday, Monday, today I received a voucher I earned in the post so that was nice too!
On Sunday I found and put up again something I lost last year. A lucky horseshoe I have had for YEARS. My dad used to be in a regimental band posted in Germany, which is where I was born and spent the first 6 years or so of my life. I remember sitting in the regimental bar after one of another band members’ child’s Christening and the wife brought in a cake and gave all of the children a little horseshoe off the top of the cake. I have had it blue-tacked up somewhere in my room ever since. I would have been five I think. A good 26 years up!
And then I knocked it under a bookcase last year and only found it again on Sunday. The day after I put it up I receive a fairy door and luck charm in the post, and the day after I get my voucher… so it works!!!!
And R2-D2 has decided to muscle in on this picture! I blame Angela – a bad influence with the Star Wars merchandise! 😉
