The Mail Man Came !!!!!!!!

21 12 2008

So I have been patiently waiting for my ornaments to arrive from the ornament swap I took part in this year ran by Julie ….well they arrived !! I was soooo excited when I recieved my little note from the post man saying a parcel was waiting for me at the post office. So excited that I made myself late for my training session at the stables on Sonnet lol lol I just simply was not willing to wait so I went to pick then up ….and I am soooo pleased I did !!!

I was sent not one not two but 3 lovely ornaments which have now taken pride and place on our Christmas tree. So here are the pictures for you all kto see my lovely ornaments !


Now there is  a slight issue …..I have no idea who sent them to me !! lol Well I know her name is Lisa and I know she is in Florida but no idea which website is hers …Soooooo Lisa my dear please tell me your website!!! lol lol I adore the ornaments fell instantly in love with the penguin one of course due to my obbsession with penguins so I have named him Percy !

Thank you so much Lisa and again Julie thank you I have loved this experince and cannot wait till next years swap !!!!

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 !!!
