Subject: BS: My pressie has arrived!!!
From: Sandra in Sydney
Date: 24 Nov 03 - 08:01 AM

It wasn't a card from the postie to alert me to a parcel, but the parcel itself hand-delivered by my neighbour, Glenn, who shares my post office box!

Decent sized parcel (about shoe box size) - I haven't tried shaking it & I WON'T open it for a month. But I think I recognise the name of the sender.

Thankyou dear Santa.

Last year my parcel didn't arrive till 6th Feb, it walked & floated a meandering course all the way from Tennessee where Giac posted it mid Nov. It's apparent non-arrival worried us both, it did. This year I'm the first to report a pressie has arrived.

sandra (happy little vegemite)

A simpler formula is to divide the number of days between now and the holiday, birthday, etc., by your age. This will give you a more realistic waiting period. (Note: A calculation resulting in any number containing a decimal, such as 2.0, signifies that the gift should have been opened yesterday.)

Mine arrived a few days ago. The amazing thing is that I didn't even sign up for one. Of course, I'm not sure how much of a seceret it is anymore as I know who sent it. But I'll still let everyone else do some guessing for now.

I got my present today!! A big box arrived by courier - the Royal Mail doesn't do things like parcels any more.... and of course, being me, I opened it!

It's the most beautiful old fashioned box which will definately be saved for future use and inside there are lots of other little parcels. They're all wrapped so they will stay that way. They're going to the secret hiding place with the other presents until we get the decorations up.

Thank you so much, Secret Santa James in Virginia - still a secret because you didn't put your Mudcat name in!

Everything seems to be in one piece - no suspicious rattling sounds or sticky patches and the copious amounts of tissue will be recycled.

Thank you again, for giving me the biggest grin I've had for ages!

The nice student-sized elf at my postal station had me sign a parchment-like paper saying I wasn't sending explosives or nasty stuff through the mail. I was a bit vague, while remaining accurate, about the contents of that package.

Only Two Weeks 'til it gets there! The reindeer have their antlers crossed hoping it arrives safely (they only deliver on December 31--the rest of the time they're bulking up and helping pack the bag of goodies!)

I refreshed this earlier to bring it back onto the screen and later realized it could be misconstrued. I haven't seen anything from my Santa for a while, and no package yet. Perhaps it is time to pull out the poem again and look for more clues. I've established that this is someone from the UK, I'm guessing around London. My geography (sans an atlas) got me that far, anyway.

Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My package arrived today. I have been sort-of semi-good. I have opened enough of the outer wrapping to know that my Santa is in the UK and I have a rough idea of where from the postcards, but there are 3 wrapped parcels which I am going to try and not open till Christmas (well maybe a few days before as I'm going off to Woodford on the 22nd). So now I'm puzzling over the few clues I have been given. Hmmmmmm.

Oooh this is fun! Now I'm feeling guilty 'cos I haven't sent my santee's present yet. Must get busy!

Been doing a bit of sleuthing, based on what my Santa said on the postcard, and on which mudcatters from that area are involved in this, and I think I have narrowed it down to three likely contenders, with one of you definitely having the front running.

So SS, is the answer in the parcels, or will I still have to do more sleuthing after I open them?

I heard a thump out on the porch, and found a package perched on my mailbox. This is it, my Secret Santa is revealed. It took under a week from the UK to the TX. I haven't opened the box yet, we'll save that for Christmas. As to geography, I can see that if I had gotten out the atlas I could have put a name to a county closer to the channel than the city of London (but that is on the right side of the island!) I probably could have even risked the guess of Kent, because I used to be pretty good at the locations over there when I was reading more British lit. I still wouldn't have figured out who it was, because I don't know where all of our British Mudcatters live.

I love the way you spell your name--over here all of the silent consonants would have been dropped and it would look different.

Now, I wonder if the box I mailed last week has made it on its appointed rounds?

Mine came yesterday and I opened it! (Hey, life's too short.) I have a box of Terry's chocolates, a lovely day book with floral paintings, a desk calendar with some fabulous photographs, and a beautiful black scarf with white music notes on it. As the desk calendar was created by Beachcomber, I have reason to believe that my Santa is the same.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

(oh gosh, this is so much fun!!!)

But now I kinda feel bad, because I didn't carefully wrap all the items in the package I sent to my Santee! As it was going overseas, I went for safety and functionality rather than colorfulness. Santee, I hope you will understand! :-)

Thanks again to Clinton for coming up with the idea.

Hopefully I won't forget. Just to give you a hint - it is musical, wearable and from America. Hang in there. You are not forgotten.
