Santa's helper here again

*waves madly* to get the attention of:









The man in the red suit sent me to stand on line at the post office again today ... I'm telling you, after Christmas the North Pole elves and those Harry Potter house elves need to call our own summit meeting and make plans to unionise .... *mutters unintelligibly*

Oh, sorry, where was I?  Yes, the cheerful and friendly folks at the local post office took delivery of ... shiny things addressed to the people listed above, and solemnly intoned "4 - 7 business days".  Side note to dsudis -- yours is supposed to arrive a little sooner, which I hope means you'll get it before you head back to Michigan for Christmas.  Oh, and  rosybug?  Yours is going to the work address.  I know it's going to miss you, but hopefully there'll be someone there to take delivery for you.

alinewrites and maggie33, you haven't been forgotten.  Your stuff goes out tomorrow (see, I ran out of boxes at about 4:00 a.m. today, and, well, there wasn't much I could do at that point.)  That will be the last of the international mailing, unless any of the rest of the non-U.S. folks on my flist would like to e-mail me a snail mail addy so I can send you a card.  You can reach me at:  karen.chapman@cnb.com.  After that, it's on to the U.S. contingent.

jenni_snake?  I had an "ah hah!" moment today, so even though you and you know who won't have anything to unwrap until later, you won't be forgotten, either.  *smiles mysteriously*

I'm glad you can keep track of all those elves and their doings. Personally I gave up on it when they got started on the whole the trade union discussion. I mean, really! Imagine expecting to go home early on Xmas Eve, under the circumstances!

I'm eagerly awaiting the goody!! And am very excited! I'll tell you the minute it arrives. Don't fear. It'll take a loooooong time to come, so I'll be back at work or someone else will by the time it arrives. Can you believe I'm still waiting for those @#$%&*!! DVDs I ordered mid-November?? Where are they, I ask with tears in my eyes?? I think our postal service is being run by elves.

Did you get my card yet?

The postcard? Yes indeed, thank you!

Hope you had a very happy Christmas. Enjoy your time off.

Now, there's something in the package I sent that's breakable, so if it arrives damaged, please let me know so I can have a replacement sent.

I had a nice, laid-back, Cape Xmas. I had a splendid three course dinner that included crayfish, gammon and chocolate mousse on Xmas Eve with a friend and friends of hers and their parents, then on Xmas day, I went to another friend and we had the lowest-key Xmas we could do, which was lucky as the weather was extremely hot. And you?

I'm taking it easy until New Year, when I want to get writing again and make a start on home improvements.

Now I'm really curious about that package! I'll tell you as soon as it arrives. Post is slow here, so don't worry. Is it a K/B mug? Izzit? Izzit? ;)

I hope you got my Xmas card too. I tried to go as African as possible, for novelty-sake, but it was difficult finding African cards. Most are very Eurocentric, which is a bit out of place out here. Snowmen and penguins in 35 degrees and midsummer??? It never snows here.

Had I already told you how much I liked your card and calendar? Yes? Sorry, I'm getting old and tend to forget things easily - but thanks again for them!! ;o)
