I have had the most awful day today. On Tuesday I posted a large package to my friend Tessa in Cumbria, inside was a small quilt she had won on a give away, a few of my UFO’s I no longer wish to complete, 52 patchwork blocks of various sizes and colours and her most recent quilt she had sent me for quilting. I put that in as I had finished it but did not tell her it was inside, I wanted it to be a surprise when she opened the package. As I said, I posted this on Tuesday FIRST CLASS, cost just under £16.00, they told me it would get there the next day….didn’t arrive Wednesday, and it hasn’t arrived today either. I have to admit to breaking down and ringing my friend Di who told me not to worry, but I do, how will I replace Tessa’s quilt it was a one off, blocks made for her from friends on a forum she is on. I am angry and upset. I rang the post office and they are stunned it has not arrived !!! I have to wait 28 days before I can do anything about it. WHY? Surely that is giving the loss more time to go further away if you see what I mean. I feel sick this has happened, Tessa texted me most of the day saying not to worry, but until that has arrived in Tessa’s hands I will worry. I am not fussed about the stuff of mine I have sent her, it is the loss of her quilt that upsets me.
They are pictures of the UFO’s, there was another one but I don’t have a picture of it plus all the blocks and Tessa’s beautiful Quilt which I cannot put pictures of on here for now. Please please please let this package arrive tomorrow.
Royal Mail you are a total disgrace.
Then this afternoon Rebecca came home from school. She had her assessment for her cooking skills this morning. She made, Sausage Rolls, Mini Quiche’s, mini Pizza’s and a Lemon and Lime Cheesecake. When she went at the end of the day to pick them all up to bring them home, someone had eaten all bar two of the sausage rolls. I am naming her school as it makes me sick that someone could do this.

I am just so disgusted with this, again it is THEFT.
