Better Late Than Never!

The postman woke me up around 1pm
No, he didn't creep up the stairs to whisper sweet nothings into my slumbering ear!
He just knocked on the door, setting off a chain reaction of hysteria amongst the animals.
" A gift from one of your blog readers!" He told me authoritatively
He seems to know me so well.

He was right! It was  a late Christmas gift from Jan in Australia.
I've only had a few hours sleep.
I am back at work later.
Snow is on the way
But it made me smile!
Thank you

  4. For a split-moment I was dreading that Winnie had gone solo-walkies again - but what you got is almost as sweet as she is. (Oh, those heatwave Noels in Oz!)

  13. When I was sleeping after a night shift I always had a note on the door threatening terrible things if anyone dared to knock. The consequences were on a sliding scale based on the tone of the preceeding shift. Sadly, creating it could be the high point of my waking hours.

  18. What a lovely gift - too good to put on the tree. I'd keep it as an ornament, and a constant reminder of the super holiday you had in Oz.

  22. Good to see Santa having a well-earned rest after his Christmas exertions. But where are the elves? Don't tell me they're still slaving away on 2017 presents while Santa puts his feet up.
