Sorry for being late trying to catch up with so many things Greg's dementia is slowly but surely eating away at him. Just not the same person I meet 30 years it's all those past memories that I try and treasure because now it's like living with a stranger. Had a much better year reading though getting back to my form but there are still some bleak times where I just can't pick up at book but saying that have read 27 so far this year so I'm happy with that. It's a shame more people haven't joined perhaps we could do a Christmas in July and i'll try and whip up some more support Cheers Bill(books)
we had the most spectacular thunderstorm on sunday night as i got ready to send addresses - we lost power, phone and internet - and got maybe 25 drops of rain, not even enough to smell the drops landing on the dry parched ground
phone and internet remained off on monday morning and when i got home later last night, another thunderstorm arrived, this time with a little rain
and today it is blowing a gale outside - smoke from the bushfires near the blue mountains (east) and dust from further out west making for a most interesting / unusual sky colouring
anyhow thanks everyone for being a secret helper this year
have fun getting your secret mailings together
I'm hoping it was sent late and is not missing...
As for what I sent - it, and about 6 other HGG/Christmas pieces of mail haven't been recorded as received by anyone. I'm hoping its just people away or busy, but I'm wondering what the heck is going on with the mail! I waited by my letterbox all day today in great hope but alas, nothing. Our mail now won't resume until Saturday. I'll cross my fingers x
I haven’t received mine as yet but did receive a note via LadyIndigo with apologies. Mail is being affected here in Australia due to fires so expect delays with mail deliveries
Its kinda weird if its holding up NZ deliveries though (still haven't received mine, and haven't heard anything from my giftee). I'm expecting a huge amount of mail from all over the world and had none arrive (Christmas cards, calendars etc). Then funnily enough a wishlist tag book has arrived from the US, sent way after the other mail. I can't help getting suspicious, especially as our country seems to be plagued with letterbox thieves according to the media :(
Fingers crossed we'll all get our gifts in the end x
So thank you very much - lovely receiving your package now - I know it is after Christmas and New Year but there's nothing like a gift you actually want, especially after the anxiety of Christmas is over ;D
As to my giftee - not sure if you've got your package or not? It was sent before Xmas post deadlines and I had some helpers send you other things as well (so three parcels in total). I hope you are ok amongst this horrific time firewise - please let us know you received your gifts and that you are ok?
Brightest Blessings xxx
