Mail - snail pace

[addendum: A package was sent to me from France eight months ago. It has yet to arrive. Is that a record??]
I'm expecting five packages from the U.S. that seem to be taking much longer than usual. Dawn's (feathered nest) package finally got through (she and I did a trade), but others have yet to arrive. Wren, I'll let you know the minute your birthday package arrives, I promise. There must be a backlog at the border is all I can think of.


Wouldn't it be fun if they all showed up together?

  1. I hope they show up soon. Our mail system is not the best :( There was a holiday last Monday too, which sometimes throws in a couple of extra days

  5. That would be lovely! These days I'm always astonished when mail actually turns up. It always seems to take ages (as you well know). xo

  6. Lauren told me you got hers, and yours came for her very quickly...wheeew. I hope my package to you arrives this week...a few times your mail has taken 2 weeks. But it usually is 5-7 days. It seems US mail to Canada is taking forever though. ( I am so excited about this birthday surprise for you. Hurry up customs! woo hoo! ) xxxooo

  7. For Christmas gifts I will send to Canada maybe the week after our Thanksgiving ( Nov. 23 I think) they will arrive by Christmas. I need to send earlier.
