Hello and welcome, please take a seat and I'll pour the wine, do help yourself to the cup cakes, homemade of course. This is my first Blog Hop and was not sure what to expect, but having read several of your wonderful stories I am glad I came along. For my First Gift, I am going to go back to my childhood days. I hear you sigh, yes it was a long time ago, but despite the advancing years, I do still remember!
I was very young and had just started school, I was given a large parcel, it was wrapped in crepe paper and I was so excited at having such a large gift. Excitedly I pulled off the coloured paper and was surprised to see a small child sized bag. It was black and had the maps of the word printed all over it in lots of different colours. I was very pleased and immediately thought I could get my dolly in there and take her to to school, but as my little hands clasped the zip to open my new bag, to my disappointment the zip broke. Despite cries from my mother that she would get it sorted, I didn't mind. For years I carried around that little bag with the maps of the world and its broken zip until the entire bag fell apart ....I loved it!
