Post-posting confusion

I know its been more than a week and I set my self the goal of posting at least once a week. The mitigating circumstances are : 1) I DID post and then accidentally deleted it; 2) I have been finishing up all the end-of-year marking, processing, etc. at work; 3) I did have 4 days away to give my friend the retirement home and have some R&R (which was the subject of the deleted post).

So on that note: she loved it. I wrapped all the bits individually in shocking pink tissue paper; then wrapped the roombox in gold paper with a big red and gold bow. It took her about half an hour to open everything, so it was a lovely ceremony. We drank (tea) to her happy retirement.

As you can see she had to get a magnifying glass to see some of the details. However, she loved it and kept moving it around the house to find the perfect spot for it where it would get natural light and she could see it. The next morning she made a lovely comment on being able to 'inhabit it'. So that's a great thing about minis: so much fun to make; and so much fun to give, two pleasures for the price of one. Somewhere there is a picture of how she set it up but I can't find it. Confusion reigns

On another note: here's the first hint for my CUBEBOT challenge:

  1. Hi... I do sometimes think that challenges work when trying to motivate yourself, but sometimes they don't work or you don't meet your own expectations and things can fall in a heap, I think with blogging we should all cut ourselves some slack, sometimes you could post once a day and still have loads to say, and other times a month can fly by and you haven't been able to get to the computer. So even if there were no extenuating circumstances give yourself some slack too :D - my 25c

  2. A beautiful and very thoughtful retiring gift.
    Your friend must be very happy with it.
    Hugs, Drora
