Thank you Clodfobble!

Great job with the annual Cellar cat herding.

PM me your address Ali (I may already have it, but just to be sure).
I will set my calendar alert to make sure you get something in December 2012.

Not knocking your Secret Santa, as I don't know their circumstances.
Just reflecting the fact you've had problems twice now.

I know one year I never knew if my gift made it. Maybe they just didn't like it enough to say anything.

On a related note, I had to give someone one of their Christmas presents New Years Eve because it didn't arrive here in time.

this makes me sad embarrassed.

I confess, I am Aliantha's Slacker Santa.

There is a box with goodies headed your way, it is past due at this point, though I did mail it a couple days after the recommended deadline for delivery by Christmas. Aliantha, I'm sorry.

don't worry about it V. It's nice to spread the presents around anyway. No good having them all in one go, and I know postage can be a problem at Christmas, specially to and from Aus. Not sure why, but it just seems to get so jammed up if you don't have your stuff in the post a month before the big day.

Anyway, I'm not upset with you Big. It'll get here when it arrives.

On the flip side, I feel like I was a bit stingy with Zippy with just the two CD's. I hope he did like them. They were aussie style christmas carols which I thought he might enjoy for a giggle and something different while he was laid up and all.

Ahhh....I'm sorry the card came so late! I made sure I send the international destination cards first before I send the continental ones. The ones in England made it before Christmas. Oh well.....I'm glad you don't mind snorting candy canes.

Ali: But the snowflake has glitter on it. I'm actually picturing Max trying to take a bite out of the snowflake. Making me laugh.

oh oh oh! I've just figured out why he thought he could eat it. I called it a snowflake, and we made 'snowflake' gingerbread! That'd be it.

This isn't really a SS gift, but it is from a dwellar who deserves a TON of credit and admiration for doing such a wonderfully nice thing for my son.
First pic - date sent... Yes that is 24/11/11. It just arrived today.
