Grateful and spoilt

Emily answered a call from Mum while I was driving to school this morning. Mum asked her to ask me to ring back when I got home. I rang back while I was walking back to the car once Emily had gone in to school. Mum said Dad wanted to know if I could go round to their house because he wanted to ask me a question about his camera (ours are very similar), so I said I'd go straight from school. When I got there Mum and Dad gave me this ....

a new lens for my camera!! There wasn't really a question to be asked! I'm told it's an early birthday present and a thank you for running them around. I, being a true Jeffrey/Stevenson, burst into tears because it was so totally unexpected. What a wonderful present - I am extremely grateful. Thank you Mum and Dad, I really appreciate it!

I haven't had much chance to play with it yet but I did take these photos to give you an idea of how much it will zoom in.

Before (I did crop slightly because the study is a mess again.) After. Sitting in the same position and zooming in.

When we got back from the school pick up, I was telling Emily why Grandma had phoned and she posed for this shot. She hadn't even had time to take her coat and school bag off!
Thank you once again
