is just the sweetest most darlingest friendly and lovable blogger there is!!!! She sent us all a Christmas pressie! It took 3 weeks and 6 days to get here and arrived the day before we were due to start panicking… there’s something in it for myself and Damien, for Spookie
and her boys, for my mommy darling, for my sister C, for NMOTB
and her boys, for my nephew N
(Dawn is a member of his fan club), as well as for NMOTB’s
young karate teammate Shaun, who had a brain tumour operation last year!
We’re all getting together tonight to open the parcel (I can tell you- it’s immensely tempting to have it sitting on my living room floor and not being able to open it)!
UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!!
Tonight we all trekked off to NMOTB’s
place- nearly driving Mr. NMOTB bezonkers with the house suddenly full of people (we were all there except nephew M- still at school and sister C- on holiday)… and then we opened the parcel. On the way there, nephew N was immensely excited about getting more Father Christmas presents (as he says) and Damien has just been dying to open the box since we fetched it from the post office yesterday! There was a Christmas card for all of us, and a list of what went to whom (just in case the stickers had come unstuck en-route).
My mommy darling got a beautiful magnetic weekly calendar and pen, nephew N got a set of cars (which he played with immediately and identified for anyone who looked his way), Damien got a NY Jets cap (and he hasn’t taken it off all night), myself, sister B and sister C each got a “superhero” t-shirt, NMOTB and sister B’s boys each got a t-shirt or a track top with a theme specially chosen for them (NMOTB’s Ryan- karate and Dylan- rugby), NMOTB got a bag with the different coloured karate belts on it and NMOTB’s friend Sean (who had a tumour removed from his brain last year) got a karate themed poster!
This was such fun- and we were so noisy! I think Mr. NMOTB nearly wanted to cheer when we all finally left!

After we finished oohing and aahing and examining everybody’s pressies, we all hooked up with Dawn on IM for a chat to say thank you.
Dawn- you are truly one in a million! Love you madly!
