1) HUGE apologies - i have a loty of messages to reply to, will do that a bit later on sorry for being a bit out of contact, simply life has been insane now i am back at work and i have come too tired to do anything other than slump / sleep - no other excuse, just utter exhaustion
2) i will sort through feedback etc tonight my time, and update on here too
3) imagine, today i received - wait for it - YOUR parcel back to me! plus i also received a certain other parcel destined for a lovely lady with a baby, also returned to me - this is ridiculous, but has happened before (i suspect trainee staff at the post office mess it all up sometimes) anyway, the post office were very good about refunding postage and putting on a new label last time, so i will be taking both parcels back on saturday to repost (no idea how far they actually managed to travel before coming back, but i assume with the length of time since posting they made it out of the country!)
4) thank you, genuinely, for being patient with me while i have been awol - i hope the lack of contact has not spoiled the swap for anyone, i would really hate that
(am going to have something to eat, have a bath, get my head straight then work through messages / feedback etc)
you beat me to it, was going to post and say i had realised its a holiday for you american folks tomorrow, monday, so obviously take that extra day!
so post outs on the tuesday, 2nd september
anyone who hasnt posted recently or messaged me, please do so to let me know how things are progressing
jpop, i wish i had managed to get my act together enough to come through and see that exhibition, it looks great! where the hell did the summer holidays go, back to work tomorrow................(what did you think of hellboy? loved the barry manilow bit! managed to see 3 films over the summer, thats good going for me, i usually forget, dark knight, mamma mia and hellboy, and going to see the duchess on friday, read the books a while ago)
hope everyones well -dont forget to let me know posting progress please!
really i think that if its something thats taken a fair bit of time, either because its physically big and time consuming, or because its little and fiddly, so time consuming in a different way, then it counts as large
please shout out if anyone thinks otherwise!
the best way to get the idea of whats accepted as various 'sizes' is by joining swaps and checking the galleries, i think that gives a more realistic idea than how many hours, how much spent on supplies etc....
and you are much more on track than me!
large(r): 100% large(ish)/medium: to start tomorrow when i go shopping
smalls: not certain yet what i am making.... bad organiser, naughty organiser, what sort of an example do you think you are setting to newbie swappers.............
jpop thats hilarious! at least its not just me these things happen to...
please could everyone post to let me know how they are getting on - i do NOT want anyone dropping out! (have just had to leave negative feedback for someone from an earlier swap, i hate doing it, PLEASE people lets try to make this a 100% swap)
