Yes I have not written in over a week which is a terrible thing but I had the theory that the evil cold I had was going to win the battle with my body and so I went into hibernation …which is fitting really as it is officially bloody winter here now with a foot of snow and minus 30 below on its way this weekend.
Well I was pleasantly and whole heartedly surprised today to find out that my ornaments have arrived in the land down under. So I can now unveil who I had and what I sent.
About 2 months ago I joined in the secret ornament swap the the lovely Julie runs. I was incredibly excited and could not wait for my person to get their secret ornaments ( yes plural due to fact that I sent not one not two but three very Canadian ornaments)
Well Trishgot them !!!!! and added bonus she and her boys loved them !!!! I completely forgot to take pictures of the ornaments so I am stealing the great pic Trish posted on her entry and putting it on here lol
Trish has 3 lovely boys of which 2 are twins. SO I decided to get one ornament for each boy. Also went with a complete Canadian theme. I mean what is more cannuck then moose,polar bears and mounties people !? lol …nothing I tell you ha !
What shocked me even more is …Canada Post! OK so I sent these on December 1st and was told it would take at least 3 weeks to get to Australia which sent me into a tail spin of panic that Trish would not receive them until after Christmas ! Ummmm yeah they got there less then a week and a half later. So I can now no longer complain about the great Canadian postal service. You know that is the second time they have shocked the pants off me in 24 hours actually. 2 days ago the door to our letter box snapped off ( likely in protest to the fridget temps we are now enduring here) . Anyway mum and I had a slight bet that it would be at least 2 weeks before they would repair and we would get no mail….so not the case. They fixed it the next day !? Yeah shocked utterly shocked …G Canada Post I shall never say rude remarks about you again !!!
