Good Mail Always Comes After The Weekend

Monday was a great mail day. I have been waiting for these DVD's with anticipation (nearly a month in a couple of cases). But of course they couldn't arrive in time for the weekend nooooooo they have to arrive on a Monday. But oh well guess next weekend is looking great......... Now which one to watch first LOL

Do You Remember.......

In the days before computers, when we were still at school one of the things to do was have a penpal. I remember having penpals in Scotland and Japan but as most things go when you are growing up writing letters takes a back seat to running amok after school (ahem that should be doing homework after school), finding out that the opposite sex is interesting etc.

Well a blogger friend decided to bring back the art of penpalism and set up a secret penpal exchange, via normal post . We are to send a card or letter to our person the first week of the month up until Christmas. The person I sent to received their card earlier this month ( I sneakily checked out their blog) and I received a lovely letter from my person yesterday in the mail. Getting a letter or card in the mail sure is different than getting an email from someone. You forget how nice it is to hold something solid in your hand and read about someone,something, some place.
Bring on next month !!

I Got Mail :)

The blogging world is amazing. I was reading someones blog and they were talking about some jewellery that was available and part proceeds went to the Christchurch Earthquake appeal. Now as some of you remember I was there in February when the earthquake struck and the devastation to the places and people of my hometown (yes it is still my hometown even though I haven't lived there in 20+ years) was heartbreaking.
I checked out Cloud Nine Creative and ordered a necklace. Let me tell you this has been one wonderful experience. The communication with the owner has been great. Australia Post actually managed to get it to me in a super quick time (check out my previous post LOL) and I have managed to make a donation to help Christchurch. So all in all a very warming experience.

Oh I suppose you want to see what I got..............well here it is!
The other side is black.  I did have to pull back and not order the earrings but hey that might be a treat for me in the future LOL

Well what can I say, Wicked was in one word "Wicked". I went having no idea what the storyline was going to be and came out after the show like a kid at christmas. The humor was great.
The cast were fantastic and it was great to see Bert back in the saddle again.
This is one show that if it ever gets put out on DVD I will be getting a copy to watch again......
