None of mine have arrived yet! We had a lot of strike action with the Royal Mail around that time, so I'm hoping they've not been shoved in a cupboard somewhere and lost.

I did have fun buying them and receiving them though! (have received mim's, Tom's, and my Pipkin's!) Thanks one and all! Maybe we shall make it an annual tradition?

Also think we should have an annual tradition of a Christmas stories collection!

Oh, yes, right. That strike. So pity, but I won't lost hope that we will receive your postcards, merry. :hugs

Yes, why not? I agree with you that we need to make this like annual tradition. 😃

Oh, yes, definitely. We need to this like only ours Christmas stories tradition. 🥰

As for mine postcards - guys, I once told in December that I will sent them in January and I will, just I'm still waiting for my salary and then I'll trying to find last four postcards with my city or country (Latvia) nature to add to my Christmas cards and then I'll sent them. Just bemusing with patience, my loves! :blush :up

Oh no, how bad. :sad I thought that I needed to receive from you very fast like from Tom, but yeah, it was and still is strange that your postcard can go so long. :huh So pity. What you will be doing, merry, now? :ohwell

Yes, you did!! I think I meant that you get all the mail from all of those who sent you something that you haven't received and that your mail gets to go out to the rest of us...because I am looking forward to your card.

Alright. I know Christmas is over but I finally acquired a safe address to which you may send mail! If anyone still wants to send a card....

Well there is some hope of mine arriving after all, because one of them arrived yesterday! and they were all posted at the same time, soooo at least they haven't lost the mailbag with them in :clapping

ME too! with a customs declaration. So bizarre. For a minute there I thought that I'd have to pay a customs fee to receive it. LOL.
I'm so glad it arrived safely. :elephant ( I think it should a be dancing hippo named Flúss.)

A customs declaration?! how very bizarre!!

I'm glad you didn't have to pay for it, Mim! :hugs

I'm beginning to feel nervous of this thing where you pay RM online, then they bring a label and stick it on for you and take it away. It sounds so good in theory but this lot of simple, light cards took over a month to arrive (some still not arrived?? Fossy's and Impy's?) and the customs thing is just plain weird.

Mine had a customs sticker on it as well. But it did nothing about paying anything so I ignored it. I mean why would you pay customs for a freaking postcard? 😵 But maybe that's why it took so long Merry? 🤣🤣
