This is an overdue catch-up with good ole Flat Richie. He arrived in Germany at CraMERRY’s last week, and I was just too distracted by The Stranger to get to this update. So, CraMERRY received Richie in a massive parcel on the 22nd of January. He took a bit of a detour because the parcel service failed to inform CraMERRY of his arrival. It was only when I passed on notice from his previous host, Yve, that CraMERRY found out, and before they released him from their parcel facility, the parcel service wanted all kinds of info about sender etc… Anyway, he arrived safe and sound.
Here he is, taking a breather in CraMERRY’s sitting room.
Quote CraMERRY: “Sonja, you will howl with enthusiasm ☺ An incredible journey with an incredible amount of kilometers 😂.”
CraMERRY has already sent the parcel on to the next – the final – recipient, so I can post the gifts she chose from the package:
Love it – the little baggie is not made by me but by another talented seamstress. I am intrigued about that bookmarker kit.
Anyway, Flat Richie is now already received at his last stop, but before we get to that, here is the obligatory map:
I can disclose that Richie is now only travelling within Europe before he goes on his final journey back to his starting point. I can’t tell you how curious I am to see the parcel when it gets back here! Thank goodness the distraction of the last few days is over…
Talking of distraction – guess what I found?
Oh man, I *knew* that I would eventually find them again. I looked for the badges high and low, went through all my boxes, the Armitage archive, everywhere. And then they finally turned up in a basket that I had kept beside my laptop, in a jelly belly tin. *Of course* I never looked inside. I feel really stupid saying it, but if anyone wants one still, although the UV run has already started, I can now put one in the post for you. Grah. Apologies!
