Noon Light Update
I have been anxiously checking my post-box daily for the past three months, and I am sorry to report that our postal system seems to have slowed down to almost a standstill. The last envelope in was on 19 June…..
Yesterday I was happily surprised to get a sixth envelope with blocks, thank-you Kathy S!
I have now received blocks from: Cathy K, Christa, Kathy S, Linda E, Peggy M and Robin.
To Angie, Barbara P, Cathy L, Kathleen, Linda N, Mary S and Sophie, all I can say is, thank-you, and that maybe they are languishing in a warehouse somewhere, and will eventually turn up.
This a recent Facebook response from our Post Office: Please note that most international mail travels by ship and can take 14 weeks to arrive at the destination country. There is a mountain of mail to be moved at all our major mail hubs. Before the strike there was a huge backlog already. Please try and be patient a little longer, your item will be delayed but should reach you in due course.
I know how much I love making the Block Lotto blocks, and I think all my blocks have been delivered to the winners in the past, so (with Sophie’s encouragement) will still contine to play, but as a donor. The thought of those possible future blocks not getting delivered can’t be contemplated.
On a brighter note, I recently visited my daughter and newish grandson in beautiful Wales and, oh my goodness, mail there is delivered the NEXT day… and on a Saturday! Whilst there we ordered something on-line, and it arrived the day after being posted!
