I guess I have been Naughty!

The postman has been this morning (Christmas Eve) and all I got was some advertising for Virgin Media! Which is a shame as I have taken part in two secret Santa's this year and only received one parcel. While it is possible that both may be in the same  parcel, I suspect this is not the case. Afterall what are the chances of the same person getting me twice in 2 different Secret Santa's. Pretty slim I would think. But Possible.

NO Blame is attached to Cath the organiser. None what so ever. But If you are my Secret Santa and sent something it just has not arrived. Maybe it is held up from Customs at the North Pole, or maybe the British Post office has lost it.  Just maybe a Christmas Elf has eaten it! Maybe it was posted Late.  I am simply letting you know for whatever reason it has not arrived on time!

Just hard luck for me. Or maybe there is a Naughty list with my name on it. (There probably is, more than once I would suspect!).

It is better to give than receive though and I hope to take part again next year no matter the outcome.

But Most importantly have a good few days, relax and recharge any batteries and Chillax as much as possible.

All the best Clint

EDIT CHRISTMAS DAY 8AM.

I must apologise to my secret Santa. I am so sorry it had turned up after all. The one that is missing is the Painted figure from Chris Stoenson's Blog https://plus.google.com/103023746985592538617/posts,

I wish to say for the record I am very happy with the gift and feel foolish for making a fuss. But without opening it there was no way to tell which santa had not arrived.

Once more sorry about that and I will do a post about the gift that has been sent in the next day or two..... All I need now is some painting ideas for the colours to use!

It really is GREAT. ThaNK YOU

  1. Hope your missing pressie arrives soon, it could be massive and in later parcel post. Hope you and Cath have a good Christmas. I got my SS parcel ages ago and opened it by accident. It was cool and has been painted and will be played with after Christmas

    1. Thank you Tamsin. Unless it is being hand delivered no way it can turn up in time. And if it is hand delivered it will hardly be secret. But just maybe it will be. Who knows the mysterious workings of Santa.

  4. I think the 2nd Secret Santa got you something so awesome, he just wants you to really want it before you get it. Souless!

    1. Thank you Adam. I suspect it will turn up in the future at some point. Just a little late. The good news is that I will get another blog post from it!!!

    1. Thank you Paul. It turns out that I have indeed received the SS from Ian and Cath, It is the one from Chris Stoensen's blog of a painted figure that has failed to arrive.

      But I am over the moon with what I have received, it truly is GREAT

    1. Thank you Ray. An honest mistake on my part as it was unopened I could not tell. But I am delighted with it... possibly not your cuppa though. (No Tricorns!!!)

  12. You on the naughty list? - Very difficult to believe; I'm sure your nice list will out-weigh your naughtiness.
    Hoping you have a good holiday break Clint.
