Good and bad mail

Today was an interesting day for mail, mostly good – actually great.

I received a box of macaroons in the post from my sister

These are delectable. Thanks so much Holly!

My Spoonflower order arrived

I got a darling water colour of Noah’s knees – thanks to the very clever Dee and Noah for having award winning knees.

Also in my letter box was a jury summons. Not terrible mail and it is an important service, BUT this is my THIRD summons. I served once as a law student and found in interesting to my studies, the second time I was unable to do it/ had an exemption due to my job and now I’m hoping to be able to get out of it, due to having young children in my care.

This is not the ‘bad mail’. Today I was informed by Courier post that the parcel (birthday present) I was eagerly awaiting from my Dad is lost suspected stolen. So despite all this lovely mail (and a jury summons) I’m left with a bad taste in my mouth… perhaps it’s time that I went off and had another macaroon! Did I mention how delightful they are?

I was called up for the third time when Elijah was three and at kindy. I applied to be excused and it was accepted so you shouldn't have too much of a problem. None of my siblings have been called up and I don't even think my Mum has - I guess the randomiser must love my name :/ Those macaroons look mmmmmm

Oh man, hate the mail thieves... I've had so much awesome mail stolen over the years... I've never been called for jury service. Not sure whether I want to be or not.. p.s. love the header!!

Oh I hate mail thieves too!! I had two parcels stolen and both came from the same friend. So upsetting.
Those macaroons look AMAZING!!!

Mmm those macarons! Amazing that they remained so intact after being posted!! Those spoonflower fabrics are ace - are they your design? Boo for mail theives. I've been waiting almost 8 weeks for a parcel from a swap coming from the USA, so I think it may never be coming :(

I love your header! the macaroons look so good. Grr people who steal mail, it happens all the time! I haven't had anything stolen when I've posted using track and trace but I've had a few envelopes with vouchers in them gone missing x

I have yet to know the joy of a macaroon! One day maybe?

I have had a US order going missing, when it arrived it had been opened with my order gone and anarchist type material enclosed saying stuff like 'steal from the rich to give to the poor!' I was furious.

Anyway on a brighter note.... check out this http://hootnz.blogspot.co.nz/2012/05/liebster-blog-award.html

I just awarded you a bloggy award! :)

Missing mail often leads to an all-day festering wound, for me...and any times it's brought up thereafter. Poop! Thank goodness for macaroons.
