Only Time Tells

There are times where I could really curse this hobby. One waits impatiently for weeks, sometimes months for parcels to arrive from Russia (their post must be the slowest on earth), never venturing outside for fear they will arrive while your out.

Then the day arrives when you say to yourself "enough is enough" and you finally give in to the urge for a day of complete sanity. So off you trot to the movies with hubby to see, not just one movie but two, Jersey Boys in the morning, lunch and a little shopping, then Maleficent in the afternoon and on to dinner.

Only to find when you've arrived home in darkness, the bloody things turned up while you were out and you're left with a note in the mailbox saying "pick up from the Post Office after 4 pm"!! How frustrating is that??

Then you check your emails and suddenly a bright light appears on the horizon . . . you've received a SHIPPING NOTICE!! Oh wow, how wonderful that feels, finally my two Fairyland Pukifees (Cony and Dony) have emerged from their cocoons and are flying home to Mumma.

So now, with fingers crossed, I'll begin the impatient wait all over again and with a little luck (I hope and pray Lady Luck is listening) they will be here by Friday.

    1. Yes I must say that is one thing those Russian girls know how to do really well ... knit and crochet! Did you say GO CRAZY, oh my dear Giac, I have been crazy for years. Ha ha ha!

  4. It's like they wait, and watch, and wait and watch! They have a talent for delivering packages when you're not there... or when you are there, but still being stealth and leaving a message of "Oh, whoops, missed you!"

    1. Yeah Heather, I think they do wait until we go out, the little beady eyed monsters. :) I am trying to think positive ... THEY WILL ARRIVE FRIDAY.

  5. Those outfits are adorable! I can't wait to see pictures of your new girls, too! My Cony was ordered via DDE so I think I've still got a bit of a wait ahead of me...

    1. I can hardly wait either, but I have to . . . they've been stuck in the APF at Sunshine West since lunchtime Friday. I'd hoped some kind person would have given it to a driver for delivery that afternoon, but alas no, Lady Luck deserted me!! Roll on tomorrow. :)
