Serendipitous


A few weeks ago, myself and Lynsey from Swirly Thoughts organised to do a little international swap, taking some of our favourite biccies and choccies and sending them over the wild blue yonder to the other side of the world.

 

We both got a little delayed at the start, but serendipitously ended up sending our packages on the exact same day.

We then thought that it would be really interesting to see whether Australia Post or the Royal Mail would be quicker in getting our parcels to the other side of the world.



Well as a matter of fact, when I woke up Friday morning, I had an email from Lynsey telling me that her parcel from me had arrived...... and when I opened my front door to leave the house Friday morning, my parcel from her was sitting on the doorstep.

What are the odds?????

Thanks so much Lynsey, I am super chuffed with all my gorgeous goodies (did you notice that the chook card totally matches my doorchook)? I had to totally resist opening everything yesterday until I managed to take photos today.... it was very difficult!

Hey, bring that Fry's with you tomorrow. I love that stuff.

That timing is quite amazing. You couldn't make that happen if you were trying to.

oooh wow - what a great swap idea! I love looking at the goodies in the supermarket when I'm overseas - it is my favourite! =)

I'm also amazed that both parcels arrived at the same time - Royal Mail are usually rubbish! I thought you would like to know that the Tim Tams have already gone.....
