What did you get in the post today?

I got a lovely surprise today!
Speaking to my aunt last week, she was shocked that my nan had never given me anything of my grandads when he passed, though all the other grandchildren did. I'm not materialistic and always wanted something that meant something to him and not of value, just something to make me feel I had a part of him still with me.

So today I get a parcel, inside I recieved some beautiful pictures of my grandad, all black and white and in his younger days, his retirement scroll in its frame, a poem he wrote that was published, some of his artwork and his banjo (he used to be on stage alot) the banjo did it for me more than anything, he taught me to play 'oh susannah' on it and we'd have so much needless to say I was well chuffed!

I also got a gas bill, some junk mail that royal mail seem to like posting with the letters nowdays :| and a christmas card

Anyone get anything nice?

wow! that is amazing! can't beat the old sentimental feeling, my grandad was and still is my hero, and this is worth more to me than anything of any value.
