Firstly is anyone else having trouble with Bloglines the other night I logged on and had 4,0000 posts waiting to be read ......I thought boy you guys had been frantically busy then I looked at Chookyblue and she had 200 posts waiting for me to read. I decided to clear everything and then the next day when I logged on it happened again. I have cleared them all a second time and all seems to be back to normal. However I have missed some posts.

Now on to the good stuff. My SSCS parcel arrived all the way from New Jersey it


It was opened by someone other than me.

I have only opened the card so I could let Kim know it had arrived.

I have been very good and the box remains sticky taped shut under the tree.

My work is moving in the first week of the new year so life is a little more hectic than usual so if I am missing in action for a while forgive me.
I have been given some awards and been asked some questions from No -reply bloggers so will attend to all that stuff soon.

My parcel arrived too the other day which was exciting. I wonder what is in yours that they had to open it for??? I am moving rooms at school too, so chaos rules at the moment, with 24 willing helpers, carrying boxes and dumping them on tables ... argh!!!!

Kris said...

Yes! I had similar problems with bloglines this week. (Not quite 4000 posts, but lots! Too many!) You are so good, leaving your parcel wrapped up! I am really looking forward to opening mine!

I don't know if bloglines was playing up as I haven't been near the computer in what seems like ages! It seems fine today though. Well done for being strong and not opening your parcel. Mine is under our tree too-enticing but also unopened!

Why the heck did they open it ? I was so good about the description for customs...I hope you like everything in it :)
