    Well I am utterly gobsmacked.
    We had a very special MASSIVE delivery arrive this morning!!!
    I don’t think I have ever seen anything like it!! Not one but TWO HUGE beautifully decorated boxes for the HBs!!!

    They were closely inspected and immediately claimed (though there have been some fisty cuffs over who was getting what!!!).

    Whoever our SS is has hand decorated the boxes with super safe decorations - fabulous tissue pom poms, pretty paper holly leaves and cute pipecleaner kitties!!

    I will let the photos speak for themselves but just want to say a GREAT BIG THANKYOU for our truly amazing parcels - they are proving such fun already I think I am going to have to hide them until slightly nearer the time or they will be descimated by Christmas lol!!

    Gracie says she’s very sorry for pulling off a Pom Pom but she thinks if she looks cute wearing it you might just forgive her!!!

    I feel sorry for our postmen. They are going to be greeted with huge expectant smiles :D, then sad disappointment :(when it's not THE parcel. I hope they don't take it personally!

    WHAT?!!!!!! NO!!!!!!!!!! It's only August isn't it? Isn't it? If it's not, I've lost 3 months of my life.

    But seriously, it's still November isn't it? Quite early November? And last posting date is still December isn't it?

    Please, pretty please, if my secret Santa is not one of those who have posted, can you not post it yet? I am just coming to the end of major building work, I've lost a hall cupboard and I'm still in turmoil. I've still got dust sheets over stuff. There is clutter everywhere and I just can't cope with a delivery just yet.

    I just don't know how we've got to November without me noticing. Since early September my world has been full of building work, dealing with workmen and general chaos, sick cats, vet trips and lots of work as we are very short staffed so I am having to do overtime just to keep my head above water. I'm working in the corner of my bedroom surrounded by cat carriers and litter trays. It's almost done now and things are slowly returning to normal. When I leave the house it's to go to Tesco et al (usually at rush hour - which is now dark - as that's when workmen have left), to B&Q, to the vets or to work. I go nowhere for pleasure and nearly had a panic attack passing through the bathroom stuff at John Lewis recently. So tired of looking at bathroom stuff. So stressed trying to get everything while I have workmen to put things up for me. I've not even been aware of the weather.

    Yet here we are. I finally have 2 weeks off work. Manager not too happy but knows I have to take my leave and was always waiting for work to be finished before I took it. I didn't know over the summer that my colleague would choose to retire in Ocotber. So finally, head above water and I may actually get on with some SS shopping. When I've slept for a few days and reassured the boys that there will be no more workmen until the end of the week (if they want to come earlier for anything I will suddenly find I am very busy and cannot allow access ;) )

    That sounds ever so stressful! When is the work due to be completed?

    I hope you have a nice, calm couple of weeks off work and enjoy a bit of workman free time for a few days!

    Here’s to a calm couple of weeks off. What a torrid time you’ve had, perhaps an Elf can mention to your SS in case they don’t see this message from you?

    I've received a very jolly looking parcel :Cat:Cat:Cat. Even the post lady commented on it. :) I have been reliably informed there is another on the way so waiting with great anticipation. Thank you very much to my SS. Itching to open the box now I've got it.
