My parcel is purchased, the wrapping paper is sitting on my table waiting, and the boy is poised for a run to the post office. It will undoubtedly arrive late - apologies to the person with a little space in their stocking as yet unfilled.. What is it about my life that it always seems to get traumatic when there are deadlines to meet?

IN other news, there is an enticing parcel sitting next to the hamster cage waiting for the big day before I can open it. My cat Charlie already loves it - it is a perfect cat-sized seat with prime viewing!

An enor-mouse package arrived for me yesterday! It contained many exciting parcels, and I'm being a good Earwig and leaving them until the 25th. Thank you, lovely French Secret Santa, you've spend lots of time and thought on this, I suspect! And the card is beautiful.

I'm beginning to wonder if the reindeer have eaten mine, as my Santee hasn't posted to say it's been received. That said, s/he hasn't been around on the ship for a while either, so I suspect RL may have got in the way.

Oh, if you're my Santa, please don't be disturbed if you don't hear about your gift arriving. I'm travelling around over Christmas/New Year so there may well be a time lag between a gift arriving and me actually receiving it!

Before Christmas comes and I open my gift for this year, I just wanted to thank again my Secret Santa from last year, if they are still around. and tell them I have used their lovely gift most every day in the past year.

Even more useless at being online than normal, but thankyou to my Secret Santa, a package arrived a few days ago and I've resisted the temptation to unwrap anything just yet.

And I posted to my Santee just the other day too.

Nothing has arrived yet, obviously because Santa knows that "Ukrainian" (Orthodox) Christmas is observed hereabouts. (Typical Edmonton conversation: "Should we take down the office decorations yet?" Nah, let's leave them up for Ukrainian Christmas.")

No indication yet that my santee has received their gift. Canada Post is definitely getting coal in its stocking. [Disappointed]

Nor mine...but it was sent on the absolutely finally last possible day for posting packages to its particular destination...plus I actually missed the final collection from the post office due to avoiding the ginormous queue...but i still hoped that it might just have got to where it was going in time for Christmas.

Apologies, Santee...it IS on its way, I promise.

Hmm, one I mailed priority (2 to 3 days) and was assured it would arrive the 20th (which would be 2 days), has not been reported received yet, meaning it's overdue for priority mail. Is US mail running slow this year?

(Nothing received here either but I know some people are a tad late mailing.)

I'm afraid I was late flagging down the elves, and they may still be en route. Good job there are 12 days of Christmas.

I have received my parcel, though, and look forward to opening it tomorrow.

Hugal hasn't received his yet either, so we have more fun to look forward to during the usual 'boring bit' between Christmas and New Year. (Which I see has been designated as 'Twixtmas' by some marketing gurus!)

I opened my gift this evening when all of family was over for dinner. Thank you my Secret Santa from across the pond. The little felt tree is hanging on our large one, the knit sack will be the new home for my rosary, and the lovely hand stamped keepsake tin, is awaiting my treasures. I think I will be using it to hold postage stamps on my desk. I must have been very good this year to be treated to all the above and candy as well. PS when I opened the tin, youngest grandchild from across the room yelled CANDY, DID YOU GET CANDY GRAMMY? [Killing me] I did share, so thank you from me and the grandchildren.

A small financial nightmare meant that the parcel didn't make it into the post in time - however I'm now a bit more flush now my pay has gone into the bank and the parcel will be on its way as soon as my personal elf can make it to an open post office.

As for me, Santa has been very very kind and made me giggle a lot too this morning. I have malteser hot chocolate, rather good looking chocolates (which the boy reckons he's going to share.....), a groovy boggle-eyed purple pen, a rather gormless looking pump-action penguin torch, and the most wonderful, wonderful, wonderful penguin packed to the brim with marshmallows.

Thank you so so much.

I hope my parcel brings as much joy when it finally arrives at its destination.

Wow! I'd said I'd like something local to Santa. The customs slip said "candies" and "ceramics." "Candy" is one of those pond-difference words, so I couldn't wait to find out what "candy" might mean. It turns out it meant "cow tales" caramel (which I'm saving to show littlest god-daughter, who has a thing about cows), chocolate made with organic turbinado sugar, and creamed honey (which I'll open at breakfast tomorrow.)

The ceramics couldn't have been more local to Santa as they are hand-made! Wow! All lustrous and pretty!

It didn't stop there. The card was decorated and written in local ink, which has impressed the science-geek members of my family.

Thank-you thoughtful, arty and creative Santa!!

Thank you Santa for the very pretty dove tree ornaments which went straight on the tree and the little Santa brooch which I have pinned to my dress.

Thank you, Santa for the lovely gator plushie and the penguin duck tape that make me bounce up and down and scream a certain name over and over, to the complete befuddlement of my family.
