Shake 39: A non-dome delivery

May 13, 2010

Jo & Nat, Bangkok (Thailand), Jan 2009

I happened to run into my favourite jolly postman at the mailbox today.

While I juggled coffees in the lift, I managed to get a peek at the package he’d shoved under my arm – there was no mistaking Jo’s handwriting.

There are some people that come into your life and you know they’re here to stay. Jo and I got thrown together in our late teens and I just knew that I’d want her around for the next couple of decades…at least! It’s rare to find a friend that inspires you, is always dreaming both little and big and will religiously try every new chocolate bar that comes on the market… I’m not going to even mention her mammoth reading habit!

She’s fun, she’s cheeky, she’s a total romantic and… she sends fun packages like this COOL strangely macabre book with gorgeous illustrations. Thanks for the fun surprise today!! I loooooove this book.

I’m always really grateful for this friendship, and because we’re always having a laugh, we rarely say the things that count. So here it is Jo. You’re a bit spesh, ok?

My gawd. Made it with 5 mins to spare!
