Thought I'd better come on here and say that, with regret, I think I'm going to have to say no to this one, Lorraine. Really did think we'd be up straight enough by this time to be able to do what I wanted, crafting-wise. Oh well, there's always next Christmas.

Ahhh dont worry Lynda, remember it always comes round at least once a year!

Must be irritating not to have everything sorted yet though *hugs*

Awwwww, never mind, Lynda. So sorry you'll have to miss out this time.

Right, that's it, girls and boy.



I'll sort the list and you'll be getting your pm's asap.

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

I think it's up to you Emma, last year Helen made me 3 handmade items but they were part of a matching set (think there are pics somewhere on here!) and sent me a load of stash as the 5 pressie.

I am considering this year doing 1 handmade items and a stash selection depending on what I find! Mmmmmm shall I go to bed or start surfing craft shops Mr Green

Yes, Emma. The gift can be stash, hun. It doesn't have to be like...smellies or chocs or anything.

The limit is set to avoid embarrassment as when somebody sends shed loads and somebody else sticks to the rules they feel awful. However, not many stick to the rules, lol.

So far, only two of you have posted as far as I'm aware.

I was a bit worried about these getting there on time as parcels are taking ages to arrive here. Plus if we get the snow that IS NOT going to happen, they will take longer.

Finished11
I'll post tomorrow. It might go as a packet anyway, but as above, things are looking a bit dodgy, so I think I'll get it in ASAP.
I do sometimes think they like to scare us a bit with stories, but with all the snow, I can well believe that people took advantage of the ability to order online, so there is a higher volume than is usual.

Mine is going in the post today; it's packed already and in one of the post sacks at work, so it may as well; I'd hate it not to arrive!

Well if it's addressed to you looks like a safe bet.
DH is collecting 2 parcels today for me and I have another note through the door today, must be a strange postie, as mine usually puts them in the shed.

Is yours going to last that long Suzy ? I doubt it, although hard to believe just
over a week to go.

KKarelyn, I think there are a lot of temp posties this time of
year so it probably isn't your usual postie.

I have in front of me, a silver bag with 'Snow is falling' (I wish) on the front and a card which says do not open until 25th.
I think it's from here, but it could be from my UKS team, so trying to cover both eventualities, thank you someone.
