Moving?!? That sounds exciting!

I think she means we will get the parcel on the move again.   :)

Yes, that is what I meant.  We are hopefully never moving house again.  We love house, and now my husband's job is close to it.  We have no need or desire to move.  We just want to fix the place we have.

Still wish he had come back to post a picture of what he took in the end :( Seems like he's vanished now though...

I've messaged him again to re-iterate that we'd love to see him back on the thread. I gave him the link too, just in case he's having trouble finding it and I explained that he will be sending to nctami next instead of AweSam.  :)

I think we just may need to consider that box a lost cause unfortunately :( I don't want to think negatively but it has been quite some time and Jonny only seems to respond to Larrabee so thinking it might be best to just count it as a loss and start anew :(

Yes, I was thinking about this this morning and I admit defeat. I've not heard anything from Jony since I reported last so, lets just move on.

I'm sorry guys, I know I've held things up but, you know...

It's certainly not your fault, larrabee!  I wanted to give jonyboy_mentao every opportunity, too.  It was the right thing to do.  This game is meant to be a fun thing.  We'll just start again and carry on down the list.

(Having said all that, I'm sorry to all the people who still had contributions in the original parcel and now won't get to see them enjoyed by someone else.  I know that must be disappointing, as I follow this thread really closely while waiting for my contributions to make an appearance.)

I must admit, I was definitely curious where some of my stuff would end up (one of my items was taken already) but also curious to see where items I almost took ended up!

Well, I guess we know where everything is now!

I’ll get a new box out in the post when I return (so next week).

XoD...  I’ll likely be putting on several products past their best by date, so....  oops.   ;D

And that gives Jony another week to surface.  :)

Souvenir from Croatia!  Souvenir from Croatia!  *chants*

Hah!  True!  But now I'll never know what was put in since I last had the box.

I do know that all of my contributions were already selected.  I'd've been really sad if one of the wood pieces just disappeared.  The other random things I contributed were fun to see when they were taken, but they weren't quite as personal/significant.

hehe no, no! I got one of those original pieces  ;D
