huge apologies to my recipient for a longer wait, I've been in hospital for the best part of 2 weeks - however I can confirm your gift has been express posted and should be arriving soon.


I wonder if you are my SS?  I received an express post yesterday ph34r.gif .

DH brought it up to me, and then took off the outer packaging and I had to fight him off to stop him unwrapping it.  It is MY present and under my tree.  Thanks to my SS, and I shall have a surprise in 11 days time. Much to DH's disgust. biggrin.gif

Thank you so much SS!!  the crystal set is absolutely gorgeous, and i'm hunting for the perfect place for it (i got a beautiful S&P crystal set-reed diffuser and tea light candle holder which sit on a little mirror plate with some gems)

DS loves his lightening mcqueen, DD thinks her Kachooz are wonderful (and she has a head full of hair clips, she has long curly hair so they will be well used here), and the gorgeous little taggie blanket is going to be tucked away safely to await DS2.
