A little while ago, my eldest daughter Helen sent a letter to the Queen, wishing her a happy 90th birthday. Earlier this week, she was sent this card in response (Quick note: for anyone visiting following my win for Best UK Dad Blog at the Vuelio Blog Awards, please come back tomorrow as I have a special post planned to mark the occasion!).
That little girl was absolutely over the moon. I wish you could all have seen her face on seeing the envelope and pulling out this card. Needless to say, it was very carefully wrapped up and taken to school for ‘show and tell’.
Yes, okay, I am sure Lizzie and her team sent out thousands of these cards. All I thought Helen would get in response would be a letter, not a card with photograph (and let me assure you, the card is exceptionally good quality!). It was a very nice touch and I can’t stress enough how happy it made Helen to receive this.
I made repeated attempts to take a photograph of this card with my Canon camera. None of them quite worked out. The image here was a quick snap taken on my phone. I think it’s proof that camera phones have got incredibly good these days.
I have linked the image to the wonderful #MySundayPhoto linky hosted on the equally wonderful Photalife blog. Click on the link below to visit the linky and see what other bloggers have been up to.
