"Oh, it is a parcel for me," D. said immediately as the postman handed it over. And yes, it was for her. When she was unwrapping all the gifts she said: "It is for my birthday." Right again. Well, not all of it, this beautiful set was just a gift, not especially birthday related, the other packages were indeed her belated birthday presents. And she is pampered again with such gorgeous gifts. And very very happy.
She started beading immediately, giving me the time to make a proper picture of the other items.
Except for the trousers and sleeveless cardigan also two pairs of matching socks (green with crabs, lilac with butterflies); a real ladies bag in her favorite colour and a tote which contents hair elastics and clips. Myrthestiek, how did you know how we always run out of those and never have a clue were they are?
Doortje insisted to put on the new clothes at once. "I am looking very pretty."
(All the quoted text she spoke in English. During our holidays we realized she barely pronounces a full sentence in Dutch anymore. We have to work on that. We had to translate some Dutch words in English for her, before she comprehended what we meant).
And pretty she is. Myrthestiek, thanks so much for those precious gifts, we are so thrilled!
