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
