Sundae post

Santa's been busy early and I got a parcel from Sundae today marked "CHRISTMAS".
I'm a good girl so I won't open it til the Day itself, and I don't even have a tree to put it under yet, so I thought I'd put it here.
If you get a similar parcel - perhaps you could also put it under this tree, so that Santa can keep track?
Cheers

Thanks hon
If anyone overseas gets anything from me (and the surprise will be ruined by stupid-Customs-stupid-label) it will be wrapped inside the posting bag, so you can safely open.

If it's a card, and the label says there is a small thing inside, then it will NOT be wrapped. But it's not worth putting under the tree - just open it when you open your cards.

When my Secret Santa recipient gets my gift, they will know. It won't be hard - I will label it Secret Santa. So that should NOT be opened until Christmas Day. Unless you have no self control. Like me.

I hope I haven't forgotten anyone. I may not have your address, or we may not have interacted much this year, or I may just hate you. But honestly, the most likely sitch is that I've messed up. Sorry.

That is sweet of you. What is your current address, Sundae? Sorry, I'm so out of it these days.

Santa came early to my little village - I don't yet know what is inside my parcel -but Carrot has tucked into his doggy choc advent calendar a month early :P No appreciation for delayed gratification.


Carrot likes the parcels that arrive from Sundae. They're usually edible and that's about as good as it gets for a dog.

So far, everyone wins!

Had an email from Bruce, so I know he had his prize.
Had a wonderful PM from 'Spode, which I can't access in the library (don't ask don't tell)
A card from Griff - goodness me when did it get there, bearing in mind he had a chance to reply before he went to NZ?! (and it was marvs btw - a design of his MIL's, awfully artistic)
And now my first overseas "public post" from IM.

It's making me happy.
And as an essentially selfish person, I am reaping the rewards.

I can also confirm receipt of another overseas delivery, which I thought was cool, and my kids thought was hilarious. They are not at all interested in the usefulness of it, only the clever name. An excellent item that will definitely be put to good use. Thanks, Sundae!!

I have a habit of losing tiny knives to airport security. I lost a mini Leatherman when we went to Myrtle Beach last year, and this year my 3" folding credit card knife. I forget I have them stashed in a side pocket, or the guts of my wallet.

The scales are balanced again, as I too have received a wallet ninja from Cherry. I love it, and I'm sorry I'll lose it next year.

Thanx love!
