A Wonderful Surprise

Imagine me sitting in the kitchen with a streaming nose because my glorious girlfriend shared her cold with me, a cup of coffee in one hand, a strong cold and flu remedy in the other, and in front of me is a mysterious parcel.

Granted, I’ve been getting a few bits for the shop from eBay, but this one was different.


Upon opening it, I found six fabulous pen blanks and a letter from a lovely chap who goes by the name of Broadsideguy on YouTube. We’d chatted on YouTube a bit as he comments regularly on my uploads and he also bought a copy of my book recently too.

So, to read the letter he sent saying that the pen blanks were a sign of his appreciation for the videos etc, my faith in humanity was restored.

It was such an unexpected gift that I’ve been lost for words until now. I really am deeply touched. The generosity of the gesture is huge to me, and means a lot. Perhaps I am doing something right.

So, Dave, Broadsideguy. Thank you. Thank you very, very much indeed. I am really touched by your generosity. 🙂

  1. That’s really nice and comes the morning after I rewatched the video of the beautiful bowl you sent Chris.

    1. Hi Brendan,
      It was a lovely gesture, and I really am touched. I did like the bowl I made for Chris – it was great to turn for him.
