I got a package!!!
Ok so here is the fabulous package. Everything was wrapped up in tissue paper but I confess I was a bit rough so I tore one.
Look at Francis! Isn't he great!
Also in the package:
A little purple pouch with my initial sewn on
A gorgeous mobile phone charm Loops made (with an elephant on it!) in the pouch. Great job with the beading!
An English recipe post with John Constable's painting 'The Hay Wane' on the front. I studied this painting in year 12 art!
Yummy chocolate (Brother claimed a dairy milk bar as soon as I opened the box!)
A Flumps bar (Marshmallow) - what a funny name
Lollies!! Some I had as a kid but can't buy anymore (like Love hearts and fizzers) and some I have never heard of (but I really realy like Climpies bonbons)
A gorgeous tomato notepad for the fridge and a vegetable pen. I love my veggies and my veggie garden.
Here is gorgeous Francis, He just couldn't wait to get outside and stretch his legs. I checked his passport and he was cleared for immigration. He is beautifully made and has his own little friend on his wrist!
The he was so jetlagged (and sleepy) that I put him to bed.
It's pretty warm today so he found a cool place to rest. He said he passed through the equator and it was very hot.
And here is the contents of his passport. Loops, you're so creative!

Francis was born in the Black Forest to Vera and Johann, part of a small herd of undiscovered black elephants that hide in the darkness of the forest.
Francis was born with swirly purple patches on his ears and belly, and a sparkly tail, and couldn't hide in the dark forest as well as the other elephants.
Eventually the elephant elders agreed that he muct leave their herd for fear that his differences could draw attention to them and lead to them being discovered. So, he said goodbye to his parents and his friend Claudia the cow, and set off with his favourite toy as he was sure that there would be somewhere he would fit in perfectly.
He fits in perfectly here! Thanks so much!
