So, err, you may recall a few weeks ago I mentioned, in passing, about a PPI windfall of sorts, so I decided I would stock up now on a bunch of things (in the sales, of course!) which would have me set for Christmas, birthdays, and, um, probably next Christmas as well ;o)

Anywho, I didn’t think I’d gone *that* wild, so when I got home last Wednesday to a card to say I had one parcel to be collected, I was okay with that.  And the next night I was okay with the lovely parcel from Cindy which had dropped through the door (more on that later) but then there was another card with it…

Uh, what?!  13 parcels?!  I was frantically trying to work out what could have arrived, knowing I had at least 4 coming from Labor Day sales in the US (2 lots of 2 parcels), but then realising they couldn’t have arrived in that short time, and then trying to work out what on earth else it could be!  I couldn’t even think of 13 different parcels that should be arriving in total, the highest number I could count up to was 7, aside from Cindy’s, and I knew 1 of them had only been posted that day…

Yeah, turns out the postie should be issued with tipex, that would be 3 parcels, not 13, he had just written 1 to start with and then scribbled it out to write 3 instead…  Aaaaaand relax!
