I think swap anxiety is a universal experience, as my long suffering BF will testify - I always spend the night before I post stressing about the quality of my package!! *lol* Don't worry, I'm sure that both of your parcels are great!!  :-*

Yep, you're right. Exactly the same phrase I use. ;D
I have the reciept so I will contact the Royal Mail monday and complain, but I know from experience that complaining to the Royal Mail is a lot like talking to a brick wall.

Really off topic question- is "bloody" considered a "bad word" in the UK? Is that why you starred it out? ???

Well, it's considered a swear word, and I didn't want to risk offending anyone.  Isn't it rude in America?

Still waiting for my package, I will check my PO Box today. It should have arrived since she is just up the coast.

I think you Brits are a lot less offended by your use of the word Bloody than we are of F**king. I think Americans tend to either not know that Bloody is a swear word or, they just think it's cute and funny when you all use it.

bloody is considered a mild swear word over here.

Package so nearly finished for Amy, I'm crafting at record breaking speed here. I have to go to an award thing at my brother's school this evening (sadly not the sort of event I can sneak some crafts into to keep me occupied :(), because of that it won't get it finished in time to post tomorrow but I'm still hoping to get it out Friday
