Santa post

I can’t show you the package I sent to Illene today for Fee’s 2011 Advent Swap because this ‘doofus’ forgot to take a photo!!!!

I was in a bit of a hurry trying to get it all wrapped and parcelled up so that I could take it to the post office today to be on its merry way before I left for ‘work’ (I’m volunteering two days a week at Lifeline to get back into the swing of things!!) so photos were not at the forefront of the grey matter!!!

Needless to say, it looked something like this….

….well, maybe that’s a ‘slight’ exaggeration…..but it did look a little like this one….

….except plain packaging…ok… looks nothing like it!  But hopefully Illene will take a photo when it arrives and share it with us all! LOL

My mind’s not quite with it this week as I dropped my son off at Airlie Beach for Schoolies week on Saturday.  Boy, isn’t that a test of a parent’s trust!!!!!  Well, so far so good, only one of the boys has been bribed into having his torso waxed and all I can say is, if that’s the worst thing they do, then we are blessed!

Needless to say, I’m not thinking exactly straight and I’m hoping for Thursday to roll around quickly so I can have him home again, safe and sound!

Sugary hugs

O I remember ''leavers'' when my girls were yr 12... I went with the eldest girl for hers... yes I was the ''18 yr old''... I tell you the group of girls I had were really well behaved and I often had quite a few for dinner and I would always leave the leftovers out and in the morning they would be all gone... our house would have gone from 6 17 yr olds to maybe 12 or 15 by morning... hang in there Wendy xxx

Hello Wendy,

I am sure Illene will love her parcel of goodies. The postie is certainly earning his keep at this time of the year.
Happy days.
