Not sure if I'm supposed to post in this thread or the roundup thread so I am just going with what's familiar. :D I got my awesome gifts from Ally today all the way from Australia! Thank you so much for everything! I love it all!

The obligatory picture of everything together. :D

She sent me a lovely Christmas Card along with a couple of post cards from her area. I really want to travel to Australia one of these days! And yes, Happy Solstice is definitely a thing! :D

Australian Cadbury! Our American version is so much crap I love it when I get to enjoy imported Cadbury! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I shared a bar with the hubby, the girl child, and a wayward father-in-law that showed up at our door for a week. :D The dingo is left but soon I'll be eating its baby instead! I'm glad there was no Vegemite in there! ;) We actually had an Australian guy from Reddit send us some things along with some Cards Against Humanity cards we needed and he sent some along with some Cadbury. I'm still afraid to try it. Tee hee

Arigumi dragon plushie in my two favorite colors! I don't think he looks evil. I think he's adorable! He's up on my computer tower with Megan's dragons from last year. :D And a little koala keychain. His belly says "G'day Mate".

Thank you again for everything! I'm glad you were able to finish your studies! I hope you got good marks! I didn't mind waiting (I only bugged BMH once because I wasn't sure since the last two I've participated in I received well before the deadline). I think this was definitely worth the wait!

I feel like such a liar sending koalas - there are no koalas in Western Australia! In any case - yay! I'm so pleased everything got to you in one piece - in a timely manner, too! - and that you like it all! They were lots of fun to make once I got back into the swing of things crafting-wise.

Hey, I just wanted everyone to know that Ally sent me some GREAT stuff in the swap!! I was planning to post pictures last week, but - plot twist - I had to leave my apartment after getting carbonmonoxide poisoning as a result of the unsafe heating system here. It's been two weeks now and they just started on replacing the whole system, which will take all of this week and next week. The week after that, hopefully they will turn the heating back on and I can move back in. Of course I will take and post pictures then!

Two things:
1 - Yay! I was starting to get really paranoid that the package still hadn't gotten to you. I'm pleased it did, and very much jazzed that you liked the contents :)
2 - Yikes! That sounds horrible! Are you feeling all right now? Will any of the folks in your building (or you) be looking for compensation?

Ha, I actually PM'd you when I got them on 24-12 - or thought I had, turns out there's an ally without capital A and I PM'd them instead. Sorry!

I'm ok now, not too happy with my landlord (who pulled the "Of course it's not your fault... but..." on me to complain about the costs and timing) but I won't be living here much longer I think. I'm job hunting (current contract ends in May) and plan to move once I have a new position. And in Belgium, landlords are way more protected than tenants so we can't claim for any compensation. Since it's being fixed now, the landlord is doing everything they're legally obliged to.
