Hi Everyone,

( My computer is playing up quite badly (as is my camera, but I think that is a moisture issue)
I don't think it liked being packed up, so please bear with me,
if this is full of typos. I am also having trouble logging in to EB and answering PMs , so PLEASE don't think I am being rude.)

This is just to say a huge thank you to all of the EB members who took the time to read my Vent,
to all of you who were so understanding, who sent PMs, gifts and just generally made me feel like I wasn't going crazy!

Bella has already started receiving dresses in the mail.   biggrin.gif
I have been back at work so unable to get pics of her opening her parcels.
But I've just gotta say she was so chuffed at getting mail addressed to her.

First Thank You goes to  Jenno who sent Bella 2 dresses.
The blue & white one was worn all day, and she took great delight in showing everyone
that you can wear the black one "strapless"  happy.gif

So to Jenny we say thank you XXX

She looks so happy and beautiful in her new dresses.

And the EBers who have sent dresses are truly generous.

Next dress to arrive was from Prickly
The very sweet Nicole sent me the most wonderful PM
(that made me laugh out loud!)

So yes, she was right, the dress looks great on Bella....
And yes, it would look silly on her 3 boys!

Bella face is so red because she was literally crying with delight that so many dresses had come for her...

The next person we need to thank is the amazingly generous kemjo
who sent a wonderful gift-wrapped parcel full of pens, tattoos, stickers, jewellery etc
and TWO dresses for Bella.  biggrin.gif
Thanks so very much to Kerrie and her wonderful daughter Emily, who obviously put much care & thought into the lovely card and gifts.
Bella was a bit confused as to why a complete stranger would do something so kind for her.
So I let her read the PM you sent me. She got teary (just as I did reading it)
but now understands that while the loss of Daniella was heart wrenching for us, it also had an effect on others.
Her comment was "Some people have beautiful hearts don't they mummy?"
yes they do babygirl, yes they do...

Next person I definitely have to thank is nodnol
Who sent ME chocolate  wub.gif
as well as sending Bella the most adorable floor length purple dress
with gorgeous silver embroidery.
(and let's not forget the sweet card with the kitten on the front!)

We all got a cat walk show when she put on this dress, let me tell you!
Thanks Lisa, I love chocolate, Bella loves the dress, double the love to you.

I just had to post.

I was away for your original thread but just went back and read it.  Like some on there, I kept it together until your gorgeous dd talked about sadder things have happened   sad.gif

This is a beautiful thread, and I am so glad that Bella got to open all those packages!  

EB is awesome sometimes   biggrin.gif

OP, I hope you and your family are getting back on your feet.

She looks so lovely in all of them. I'm glad the EB community was able to help.
