oh dear confession time, and I am feeling so really really bad about this!!!!
I have had a really BIG oops with some recent swap parcels. Oh Dear!! And I was so organised and all.
Tim and I have been tripping up and down between Dunedin and Twizel (3 hr drive on a good day) very frequently, sometime together sometimes alone,
I stayed in Dunedin the other week (that I was to post off several (3) swap gifts), but left part of one of the gifts behind in Twizel, I should have just posted it off anyway, but I decided to wait 'til the Friday evening for Tim to bring it down with him, and I wanted to wrap it nicely, well.... oh I am hanging my head in shame and horror!! - I had stayed in Dunedin for the week to pack up our house as we were moving all our belongings the following week,
When parcel man Tim (AKA Rowing Man), arrived on Friday evening as planned, but too late for the post of course, I duly nicely wrapped the gift, and put it with all the others, and 2 other swap parcels to head to the post, well I got waylaid by my mother - who fractured her arm some months back but is having awful problems with it, and was making the most of having me in town, and heeded to go off to attend to help her with a few errands, the parcels got left on the stairs at home in my haste. Oh all the best laid planes!! ooohhhhh I just cannot believe this...
Anyway - to cut a very long story short so you can read it tonight,... all 3 swap parcels got packed - somewhere in with all the other stuff being packed... and I have been tearing every possible box open, and my hair out trying to find them - but so far no luck, I could have sworn that I left them all together in one corner of the dining room - not to be touched, so that this would not happen! Oh NO NO NO..
So what I am going to do, is tomorrow send off some bits of parcels so that each of the three swap friends (if I can still call them friends) have something, and then start all over again, and get what I can done over the rest of the week and weekend and mail that too on Monday - oh Quelle Horreur!!!
There is no way any of this sounds good at all, and I just don't know how to say sorry enough to my swap partners,
so off to get into gear!
Have you ever done anything like this??? Please say yes, so I don't feel a total "duhhead" all on my lonesome!
