    Well Santa’s sleigh is off and flying!!!
    Rudolph is on his way!

    The first couple of parcels have been dispatched (already?!?!) so please be extra vigilant should a random package turn up at your doorstep!

    When you have posted your SS please email sscatchat@gmail.com
    to let us know it’s been dispatched and we can look out for the receipt here.

    Hopefully all the parcels will have PF SS or CC SS written on the front and you can all take immediate steps to isolate and incubate until Christmas BUT
    FIRST
    PLEASE
    POST here to say you have received your package...this way Santa HB and all her lovely elves can tally up the parcels easily.

    If you are happy posting a photo on receipt that’s great - don’t forget to cover up your address though.

    The count down has officially begun...

    @Clairabella

    Looks like I will have to reluctantly join the unorganised group :Yawnmutter mutter mutter :D

    I drove all the way into the town to get my parcel away so I could be in The organised group club :Shamefullyembarrased
    Turned out there are road works due to new water or electric pipes from old clay to new plastic things then resurfacing and the town is pedestrian only! For 4 weeks.:rolleyes: It’s chaos.
    Everyone else obviously knew this as they all had the parking spots, there was no way I could carry my enormous, heavyweight box to the post office which is at the top end, so I had to return.

    So I now have to change tactics :Shy


    Now @SbanR will be on the floor laughing :rolleyes:

    :Hungover

    :Hilarious :Hilarious

    I am very sorry to hear that despite the lengths you went to to join the other side, ur plan didn’t work out :D

    U have two options here:

    1. You could try again tomorrow lol.

    Or

    2. You could empty the gifts out of Your secret Santa box and I can see if they can be condensed down a bit so that if u get caught out tomorrow then u won’t have a huge box to carry :D maybe smaller parcels could make the carrying part easier for you :Hilarious

    Amazon will only call when summoned following a hefty purchase. Spend a small fortune and get a free box. Easy peasy:p

    :Hilarious:Hilarious:Hilarious Don't want to disappoint you ewelsh.
    Pipelaying, roadworks etc etc = men, no?? Should have used your powers of persuasion to get one of them to carry your parcel for you.
    Or you could follow CB's suggestion n return tomorrow. I suggest you get there for 7, 8 at the very latest to b sure of a spot in front of the p.o!!!:D

    CB, your suggestion, so your group! No chickening out now:p
