A Qantas A380 model which looks great on top of my shelf near my desk! (I have always wanted to go to Australia)


A subscription to National Geographic Traveler! Packed with even more places I want to travel to.


Thanks, Oliver and Merry Christmas!

I got word my first present. A book on building Heathrow and an Amazon gift voucher. I'll post a photo when I get back home. Thank you.

Unfortunately the gift voucher did not work so I've reached out to wharvey to assist me in contacting the SS who sent me the above.

Thank you, Secret Santa

Thanks to one of my Secret Santas, PSUPaul! The USPS did good timing-wise as delivery to/from here tend to slow down with Christmas (everything routes through ORD)!

The box with PA snacks arrived today; I cannot guarantee pictures (no personal phones in our building) because I have salivating colleagues...the choices we have to make!

We might have to break open the Middleswarth chips...

You must be the santiest Santa of all! I think you've had 4 or 5 thank you messages! Are you keeping a few santees from past years?

Ps: now that I'm fully outed, it was me who emailed you about The Last Post.

I had 6 recipients this year.

LOL, I wondered who sent that to me! I loved it, thank you!

I have reached out to your three Santas... unfortunately, not all of them told me they had shipped yet... so not sure who sent the gift card.

Santa update: I just sent out messages to 17 Santas who have yet to notify me they have completed their shipping of gifts. I am a bit concerned because I have not heard from 7 of the people at all since they got their assignments.

I do hope that I am just overly cautious... and everyone is doing what they committed to doing.... I always hate the suspension part of this process... and begging for help.

So, to those of you who have not yet received all your gifts... I do apologize... but do know I am doing all I can to get them to you.

Thank you for all you're doing. I'm still patiently waiting, but it's only the 22nd...as my kids suggested, maybe it will come down the chimney on Christmas Eve!

Post Office has confirmed delivery of most packages to my giftees. One is being shipped direct from the vendor and unfortunately that one I can't track. One recipient has posted, one has not (those gifts were delivered in the past 48 hours).

I've received my 2 sets of gifts, so wharvey can cross me off his lists for the year.

Just got home for Christmas and opened my presents!

Thanks to B7e7US for the tankard and the last champions book.

And thank you to whoever sent me the spitfire cuff links and Leeds United wallet

Which one? Santa has two.

The workshop is now open 24/7. If we don't get back to you asap, please stand by; and thanks for understanding. I hope to respond to earlier PM's later today.

The nice list, of course!

My packages were shipped on time, and I sent Santa all the requested data. So I'm hoping for extra candy canes on the tree.
