Here you can post when you have sent your package off. And you can say when you have received yours.

We can also say what we got and who our secret Santa was :)

Oooh I cant wait until everyone starts posting...
Who else has a problem finding good second hand stores in the Cape Town area?

Great to see you!!!

message 8: by Chrizette (new)

Chrizette | 906 comments What area of Cape Town are you looking for, Niecole?

message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

I live in Paarl and I've looked at bookstores here, in Stellenbosch and Franschoek but their all expensive!

message 10: by Chrizette (new)

Chrizette | 906 comments I know of a wonderful shop in Durbanville. In fact that is where I found my Secret Santa book. Let me know if you want the details or email address. I emailed the girl my list and she let know which ones were available.

Lu, maybe we can start a tread with our favourite second hand shops? Or would that be against some of the rules?

message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

I love the idea of a thread with shops!

Chriz, you can message me with great shops any time!

message 15: by Chrizette (new)

Chrizette | 906 comments Hubby sent mine this morning. Apologies to my secret santa recipient in advance - had an eye operation yesterday and the handwriting on the note might be a little scribbly :) One eye will do that to you!

message 16: by Diane (new)

Diane V-R (dianev-r) | 173 comments I'm sending mine tomorrow. BTW, how many books are we meant to be sending off?

message 17: by Lu (new)

Lu | 12658 comments Mod
Chriz - Go ahead :) Hope you recover quickly from the opp!

Diane - Just one book is required. Some will send more. Some will send cards. Some will send a bookmark extra etc.

But 1 book is all that's needed :)

message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Ooooh I cant wait to see what the others get!
Lu, could you perhaps send me my receivers address again?????

Lu | 12658 comments Mod
No problem, there is still more than enough time for everyone to send.

message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

I went to the post office today but the line was so long it was in the street!

0_o wow

message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

It was awful! :(
Luckily we've got another great little shop that posts stuff in Paarl, going to try them

message 26: by Chrizette (new)

Chrizette | 906 comments Same here in our area. Went to two different post offices before trying one of those mini post offices that is in shopping malls. Luckily no lines there. It must be some kind of pension payment/unemployment payment day.

message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

I know!
Your probably right Chriz...
Shame I think those people are going to stand there a while, the line just kept growing and growing!

Yes, it's "All Pay" day at the Post Office. Every 3rd of each month, or the following Monday if it falls on a weekend.

Best to avoid the Post Office if possible.

message 29: by [deleted user] (new)

Ah well hopefully tomorrow they'll be better. :)

Lauren Smith I just got my Secret Santa gift from Sonette (who had it delivered to me at work, which was a great surprise):
Tall Stories Omnibus 5 (Omnibus) by Tom Holt

It's two Tom Holt books in one, and I've been meaning to try this author out for ages. Both novels are based on mythology too, so I can fit it into the challenge :D

Thanks Sonette, it was a great choice!

I love that we're all getting our gifts hehe...

Thanks for the update on which Lauren it was Lauren :)
