Thats it....no idea where it went after it left the DHL site in Lake Forest! It was supposed to go to the DHL hub in Ohio and then be mailed to the office here in Belgium, but it appears lost!
I am not sure of everything that is in the mailing, but what I do know is in there are my two spools of lurex - one crystal clear and the other black shimmer, two patterns that I ordered from Annie's Attic - Simple dollies to Crochet and Hooked on Fish, a card from my parents, the Complete Guide to Thread Crochet and 3 additional booklets from Auntie Annies (the 13 Animals and Blanket book was in that group I think)! What a package to lose! I very rarely get mail through that PO Box, and the one time that I am really looking forward to my mailing, it gets lost! What are the odds I ask!
*Sigh* I guess I should leave early tonight and do some sympathy yarn shopping on my way home....sounds like a plan! I've not been very focused at work lately - kinda in a funk as I seem to have lost my motivation and drive - I was asking someone about how long it would take to run a pretty big report and analysis and they said normally 2 weeks but in Kimberly time about a week...little do they know that current Kimberly time would probably take about 3 weeks!!
Update: I stopped on the way home as expected! My stash has now increased with the addition of 4 more balls of fun fur (why do I keep buying this stuff??), 4 balls of windowpane yarn (I think thats what its called) 2 balls of blue and white variegated cotton, 2 balls of turquoise and white variegated thread and 2 balls of bright cherry red Lang Opal! Its 100% official - I'm addicted to yarn!
