Life in the Slow Lane: Good Mail Day!

Wednesday 20 July 2011

Good Mail Day!

When I checked our post box last night, I found the coveted slip of paper telling me there was a parcel waiting at the Post Office for me.

 It most definately indicated there was one parcel....what was it going to be? I have been waiting for a book from Ruth (which I must confess, I was sure had been lost in the Post), some new Moisturiser from Liz Earle, a couple of scrappy prizes I have won and some new scrappy 'bits' ordered from Sarah's Cards.

As you may remember me mentioning, our local Post Office is only open for an hour a I got  all my chores done this morning (this is the 'big' clean this week, due to the  three weeks of houseguests I mentioned in yesterday's post), had a swim (to cool down) and then got myself showered and dressed in time to catch the last fifteen minutes before it closed......pretty good going if I say so myself!

Imagine my surprise when I got there and discovered there were three of which was very obviously the book, I'm glad to say.

As you can see very clearly by the postmark, Ruth posted it on June either Royal  Mail or Correus (Spanish Mail) has been playing silly beggars! Hope you got the email to say it arrived, Ruth!

The next parcel I opened was my moisturiser...beautifully packaged as always, and with a 'freebie' of the cleanser I use too (I do love Liz Earle products).......only ordered online last Thursday, I hasten to add!

And lastly, my new scrapbook ( an AC 12x12 Modern Album) and a few other little things from Sarah's Cards.....again  only ordered last week!

All-in-all a good mail day!

Just to bring you up-to-date with Boo's fleas....the Vet used a newer, stronger treatment on her last night (he says the fleas have become resistant  to good old 'Frontline'), and she certainly hasn't scratched as much today! Fingers crossed!

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you

  1. Enjoy the book! Glad that it finally arrived. I love Sarah's Cards, think they are super efficient.

  2. How lovely to have 3 parcels waiting for you. And envious that you have a copy of One Day to read - my book club tried to get it recently - still too popular at the library for us! We're working our way through other World Book Night books in the meantime though!
    Fingers crossed for Boo!

  3. lucky you, I've got that book to read as well!

  4. Definitely a Good Mail Day!! Enjoy the book! I like the colors of those letter stickers - can't wait to see them on a layout.

  5. An hour a day???? How do you survive and how do you EvEr get your packages? I shipped an RAK a week ago last Saturday on a trip to Oklahoma and I was sooo upset that we couldn't find a post office open on Saturday morning....they are open from 7am to 1pm on Saturdays in Dallas. Americans really are demanding, LOL! Glad your packages arrived safely, even if one was seriously late.

  6. Lots of great mail!! I've not heard of Liz Earle :) I love good skincare lines. Well I really hope Boo's fleas are finite! Poor pooch!

  7. Now that's what I call a good day :) you're a girl after my own heart, I love Liz Earle products too :)

  8. LOve those AC albums. Do you know what you plan to do with the front? Best wishes to Boo too. Xx

  9. I'm a Liz Earle girl too, love her products.
    There's something about getting a parcel isn't there? I'm like a kid, trying to get into the packaging as quickly as possible. Looks like good things really did come in threes for you!

  10. Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog, it's always nice to hear from you =]

    I too am a huge Liz Earle fan so what a fab mail day x

  11. That was a good day, I love receiving parcels in the post. Unfortunately at the moment it is mainly study material I am getting. Good luck with your 3 weeks of guests! Thanks for the comment on my blog, it is not so much a big bag as a TINY cat. She actually looks anorexic lol, but is healthy as a horse.

  12. Ooh, three parcels at once, what a treat! I need to order more AC albums too - definitely the best you can buy

  13. I love mail days like the one you had today! Goodness knows what goes on in the postal service though - it is the same here.

  14. Wow what a happy mail day for you Alison! I love mail days too!!


Thanks for leaving a comment....I love reading them all!
