I was up early (in the USA) and on early. Something crashed during the PayPal payment process, and I ended up getting nothing. I am, of course, disappointed. :(

I'm pleased to say that the girls worked super hard today and managed to ship a good 90% of the LBE orders today. Eyes on the doormats people!

This does not bode well for usage of the P word

I thought it was only the Hogfather that knew if we'd been good or bad?

I was a bit worried this morning when I popped out past the local shops. There were two Royal Mail vans and two police cars with flashing lights.
Had someone stolen the post; specifically the bag with the post for my road?

Happy to say that the LBEs have just arrived.

Perhaps I will find out in tomorrow's local paper exactly what happened (If I can decipher the poor use of the English language it has decended to)

LBEs opened. Tickets for Sports Cover and Large Sheet, a common Triangle, a fair sprinkling of sports and all three of the dragon sports.
Loved the Thieves' Guild receipt from Rustling Tom.

A nice haul here. Large sheet ticket, clacks delivery note, a few dragon sports and a couple of other sports I didn't have. Just short a sport of the burnt hat dragon, if any lovely people might be willing to trade for one of the others?

Commiserations, Kel !

Thankfully I only had to wait until 5:30pm for mine to arrive. No prizes for me, but I did get a clacks message (now have 2 out of the available 9), a dead letter stamp, a Dr Whiteface sport, and 2 out of 3 of the Sunshine Dragons sports. Oddly enough, I'm also missing the non-burnt hat sport

Think I managed to get all three sports, but I did get a sheet just in case!
