A parcel to cheer me up

I've been under the weather for the last couple of days with some nasty cold/sore throat/virus thingie. I know I'm not well as I did *NO* knitting yesterday when I had the day off work. I made the journey into Birmingham today but knew my UK Swap parcel was on the way. I was convinced it would have been taken to the sorting office, but my lovely postman had managed to hide it in the recycling bin! I must've looked a little strange trying to reach into a massive green wheelie bin in my work suit!
Here are the fab contents of my parcel:
ukswap 002
My swap pal was Sarah, who I failed to find despite lots and lots of clues!
She sent me... Muffins - a cook book I've wanted for ages and has made it into my Amazon basket on numerous occasions but has been removed at the last minute. I'll have to try out a few of these recipes when I'm feeling better. A lush bath bomb to help me sleep, a Lindt chocolate bunny which I will be saving for Easter (no chocolate for me until then), some purple tea lights , a fab purple tote which matches all of my other purple accessories, a sock pattern , a skein of Posh Yarn Eva in Tinkerbell, a wonderful greeny/browny colour and finally, some sock yarn that I've been trying not to buy for myself, the Kaffe Fassett Regia 4259 colourway.
A perfect parcel to cheer up a dreary day... thank you so much Sarah , I love it all!
