Forgot to check mailbox on Saturday, stopped by on the way home from getting the wife caffeinated this morning and there is a package. Says its from London?! Immediately get a big grin on my face, I'm in a couple of international groups doing SS, so the suspense was killing me on the drive from the mailbox to the apartment, which one was it? Lo and behold HeavenlyJane came through with an awesome travel wallet, the only problem I have is it has too many pockets, I dont have enough loyalty and credit cards to fill it all up. I am super excited to use it on our upcoming trip to EDI and DUB in March.

Thank you!!!

So a double post here from me because I couldn't resist ooohing over the nice leather travel wallet.

I mailed my gifts today to my Secret Santa recipient. I was expecting HUGE lines at the post office, but we waited less than a minute to reach the next available window. I've also PM's our organizing guru, so I hope I did all of this right on my first exchange here!

And I hope that my gift recipient enjoys the gifts as much as I enjoyed picking them out. One item flew home with us in business class from Italy, so it has already done a lot of traveling even before I mailed it. ;-)

Life Tip Pro:

You do not need to pay retail prices for UPS, or wait to pay at a post office. Anyone can create a UPS account and print shipping labels at home, and USPS offers click and ship as well. It is even easier if you're using USPS flat rate boxes, you won't need to measure or weigh things. For UPS, you'll likely get a slightly cheaper rate than you'll get at Staples or the UPS Store.

Finally had a chance to go to the post office and lovely surprise to receive my gifts from my Santa from Florida! (Thanks Tracy!).
Can't post a pic but i received 3 fabulous things from Purse N (which I've never seen before!). They're designed for your bag and include a handbag organiser, sunglass case (which is perfect as I wear glasses) and make up bag. I have a massive handbag so these will definitely be put to good use. Many thanks

I received a box from amazon today (might have come in over the weekend, but I didn't check for packages sat/sun) from I'm guessing my secret Santa. Thanks Santa! Will open on Christmas.

Received another package today.

Bike mount for my IPhone which will come in really handy to use with my biking GPS app, a Burmese cat calendar and an interesting book on Broadway musicals that I've started reading and will finish on my long flight across the pond later this week
