My elf just whispered into my ear that the package is in my receiver's mailbox!

Hope this person would be nice to not name me....I forgot to call myself a Secret Santa. I know, I know....I will take a Santa test next time. :)

Mcshilling,

That is awesome of your Secret Santa! Some coins you have are interesting! It is always nice to see Canadian coins.

Are these coins from Netherlands Indies (present-day Indonesia)?

Enjoy them!!

Things are arriving for Australia, that means my one can not be far behind. Those were nice coins arriving.

Mine sent December 2, now Jan 17th = 46 days and still not arrived. Immigrant sailing ships covered the distance from London to New Zealand quicker in the 1870s.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Prinetane,

It might take up to 2 or 3 months for a packet to arrive. I myself got a packet from my uncle in Scotland which he sent on 3rd November and it arrived on 7th January!

Yes, it is that bad with our post office here especially with international post. The ordinary post is fine, not packets.

I do hope things will improve later on this year.

Please do not worry, your packet will arrive this month or early February.

I am all to see what remaining members have to show us!

I am sure they are awesome as everyone had gotten so far!

Again, I think we did and still do well considering we are in the pandemic. We should be proud of that as we are able to strive to carrying on with the holiday spirits!



Let's keep going until everyone get their presents in.

Thanks to our awesome Santa rggoodie for organizing this annual event!

I'm really glad you like your gift! I'm sorry I couldn't get more silver for you or anything like that but I'm happy that you enjoyed what I sent!

The concept of maturity is complex. While one's capacity to be mature can be correlated with age, someone's overall maturity and respect for life is not. Maturity is formed through experience and perception.
Human progress can only be achieved through trial and error.
