Oh no, I posted them on Thursday pretty sure it was first class and they fitted through the slot, I wonder if they moved around and have been kept at the sorting office for being too large. If so I'll send you the extra when they do come.
Really sorry they're not with you yet.

Chances are they'll be here tomorrow, keep everything crossed!

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date  Laughing

Girls, I'm really sorry, but given that Chloe's ATC's aren't yet here, it is highly unlikely that i will be able to get your swaps back to you this week. I have photographed the ones that I have received, but specifically put a Saturday as the 'get them to me' date, as I am unable to sort swaps and take pictures in daylight during the working week. I hope you understand. Hopefully Royal Mail will bring me the last set very soon.

It really doesn't matter Tina. Sure they will arrive tomorrow. I always think
about them moving inside Karelyn and often use a bit of tape to keep them in
one place.

No worries, I don't think I told Rosie the actual date anyway and she is old enough to understand.

Right, they're here! Worth the wait as well. The postage came up short (8 whole of your english pennies, and a quid handling fee ) BUT, since the postie shoved them through the letterbox and hasn't come back for any dosh, I don't think we need to worry. If he does you can buy me a diet coke at the Retreat .


I'll post them out to you tomorrow, and put the piccies up then too.

they quite often do that at quiet times of year, easter, christmas etc they would expect you to go and pick it up and pay. Have had that happen loads of times.

I got a very stiff cardboard thingy from the Post Office when they first brought the PIP in, and it has the two cut outs for sizes, plus shapes on the front of the A4 etc so you know what fits what.

I quite often find I have to use it if I am posting birthday cards, ATCs with stuff on and the little birthday things I've been doing.

thank you all...they are lovely!
Sorry mine were late! Hope you liked them.

Lauren's have arrived but she won't be here until tomorrow night. She's also
got her 'R' swaps from Nona waiting so she has two envelopes to open
when she gets here.

Nothing here today, Lily's not mentioned it so either she's forgotten, esp it being her first swap and not totally understanding the 'swap' rules or she's just very patient LOL

Nothing disastrous has happened because of it, and hope that isn't to come.

Problem for me steph is I've always had a bad memory, and it has got worse since having Lily really, definately lost a few brain cells that pregnancy.

I've forgotten a few things though nothing bad, only that I've upset people by not remembering. I don't do it deliberatly, I really just don't remember. In fact I quite often tell people now ''I haven't got a very good memory, in fact I haven't got a memory, I can't remember where I put it.''

Well Lily loved her ATCs, she was so excited when I told her as we left school that it had arrived. We sat together on the sofa whilst she opened them, and read the backs first. It started a discussion about fave numbers, she says her's is 7, no clue what mine is. 14 I suppose as its her birthday.

There was no clear favourite, she loved them all equally. Thank you so much for everyone taking part and making Lily's first swap a lovely one.

And thanks Tina for hosting xxx

Molly - thank you so much for your ATC for me. Bless - I shall treasure it.

Lauren loved her ATCs and hopefully she will come on tomorrow and
comment. She has gone with Natalie to buy bridesmaid dresses.

Hi, it's Rosie here, thanks for my ATCs. Thank you Lily for the purple unicorn, Lauren for the dancing diva, Molly for the very Spring-y flower, Rachel for the sparkley number 2, and Chloe for the lyrics, which song were they from?
