Busy Little Chicken sent me...

Busy Little Chicken sent me some fabulous stuff as part of Tracey's Send a Little Love swap.

My goodies arrived on Saturday - the best day for a parcel to arrive don't you think? (sending a lot of my mail to school at the moment as i have had a few things not turn up... 3 packages posted from USA in December still out there somewhere...)
A very cool Union Jack flag box packed with goodies -

I am such a supermarket nerd... I love things from overseas supermarkets! And heart chocolate from Sainsbury is great! In a red box. And a bar of lindt too.I must admit my taste for chocolate has diminished since my tonils went, but i keep trying and trying to love the stuff as much as I used to... >br> IKEA fabric - did not have enough time to pursue the fabric at the Brisbane IKEA - gorgeous. A beautiful fabric covered notebook for shopping , which will be very handy; star buttons (I find it hard to find groovy buttons in NZ); scrapbooking paper (hoping to do a blitz once exam over); a book mark (great idea using embroidery thread) and a star pin cushion/bag tag.
Very cool items!
Thank you so much Busy Little Chicken! And Tracey for organising the swap too.

I took part in a Aussie dishcloth swap via another blog just before Christmas - my package finally turned up about month after it was posted, but the package sent to me has never arrived.... Mail and I do not seem to be mixing lately! Or technology (school sorted) but i-pad out of action and now this 6 year old laptop has a broken LCD screen with a great big dirty circle with a tail (looks like a balloon) - do not pick up laptop from the screen... I jsut might have to bite the bullet and buy myself my first ever laptop! Any clues what to get??? (NOT an Apple product fan...)

  1. When I send packages from NZ to Australia and the UK at the very same time. The UK packages get to their destinations a week earlier that the Aussie ones, crazy! xo

  4. I sent a parcel to America before Christmas and it only just arrived last week - a parcel I sent to the same address at least a week later arrived ages ago! Then today I received a parcel from Borneo that had only just been sent and I had been warned may take ages and it didn't at all. There is no accounting for the vagaries of international post I reckon. Hope that you get the laptop problem sorted out soon. Your giveaway items are lovely - I had no idea that a Sainsburys heart could be so interesting, but it just shows when it is something that you don't see yourself all the time that it is! xx
