A parcel courier has just delivered something for me. I wasn’t expecting anything, so opened it with curiosity.
Inside is a box containing a pair of elasticated metal grips for fastening to walking shoes or boots in icy weather.
I have to conclude that a blogging friend or reader has sent them to me, after I wrote about finding it hard to walk on the ice here.
As there is no card or sender’s address, they have chosen to remain anonymous.
So I send my sincere thanks and appreciation to whoever it was that sent them. They will certainly be useful during the next spell of bad weather.
