    It's here! It's here! I have my care package and everything is INCREDIBLE! I'm not sure there was a single thing that wasn't BETTER than I'd expected. I don't have any talent for displaying items, but I get the feeling even I could make a beautiful shadowbox displaying these items, either inside their packaging or out. It's just all so perfect.

    DuffyD, thank you so much for the care package (which even without the gift, I think proved that this is the best Duffy service money can buy). Thanks also for the translation. I guess it is time to get a candy thermometer!

    JayCee, I hope your package arrives very very soon! I guess I will not complain about Los Angeles Customs again.

    Well, it's getting nearer! My care package is now in the next county (State), and it shows as 'Awaiting payment of charges'. Unfortunately they still haven't sent the letter saying how much or where to, so..... won't be til next week now .


    Never mind, I know it will be worth waiting for, and I hope to post next week that it will have arrived and I can join in celebrating. Until then...I will have to leave the little smilie here to take out my frustration for me!!


    I will let you all know when it arrives! Have a good Sweet Duffy weekend all.

    Wow, that translation of the chocolate recipe is amazing, DuffyD! Thanks for all that hard work. I spent the morning making chocolate before I saw this translation, and I hope I didn't screw it up, because it seems like they say chocolate is very delicate. I did use a double boiler method to melt it, but there were things I didn't do. Like put the bowl in cold water...and back into the hot water. I took the easy way out. I just bought bars of chocolate and melted them, then poured them into the molds and stuck them in the freezer. I guess I'll see the results in a little bit...

    Don't worry gurgi. Chocolate is sensitive but as long as it doesn't burn in the boiler it should be fine. ^_^ Hope your chocolate turns out yummy!

    Can you send those test samples over to me for quality control checks. Jaques Torres probably would say that freezing is chocolate sabotage ... Rapid cooling will cause them to crack.

    Hmm...well, they turned out great, and no cracking. I suppose I could put them in the refrigerator next time to harden slowly?

    Well, I got a chance to look at most of my care package properly last night.

    WOW! Everything is amazing! I can’t believe the differences in things, they are just fantastic. Had so much fun last evening just looking over it all, and trying outfits on with Duffy & ShellieMay!

    And my ShellieMay blanket! The expression on the ShellieMay head is just so adorable, and her smile! Oh! DuffyD, how did you know she was so perfect for me?! She is just so me, and she has so lovely a smile/expression, I defy anyone I show her to not to fall in love with her! It's like she is smiling only at me, bringing me her love and joy right into my heart. As you can guess, I love her to bits already! That blanket is fantastic, as is everything.

    Many many thanks.

    Just catching up with some pics I took of the 'arrival'!

    Duffy couldn't help but sniff the package! I think he could tell it wasn't from this country!

    They found Lumpy but he was not impressed with being ganged up on by two bears! He's had enough trouble with Duffy who likes to chase him and jump around on him - coz he's trying to flatten out the lumps apparently

    They then put on their new coat, hat, scraf and mitten set!

    Becx that is very cute. He knew that a friend was coming.


    This is what Duffy did when he saw the box.

    He stood up on his rocking chair to check out the box top and see where it came from.



    I had just taken out the first of the packaging, when he decided to climb in and had more interest in the air pillows than the wardrobe additions.

    Oh, those air pillows provided lots of entertainment. My Duffy has an obsession with popping bubble wrap too...
