Hi Margaret,

I've copied a wee message that i have just received from Simone. I forwarded her your Forum message about having finally received her block and she, in turn, replied, not realising that it was to a "no reply" address! She had wanted to try to reply "independently" of having to ask me to post a note on her part! I have written to her explaining what happened and telling her that I would post a copy of her reply plus a translation.

I wrote to her, with the copy of the photo you posted of her block,

"Here is the photo of your block which Margaret S has posted on the Forum. She explained that it only arrived a couple of days ago! She says it is lovely and that now she has all of her blocks except for the one from Sue who has problems with her foot and can't use her machine just now."

She says - "Hi there. Thank you for the news of my block - I thought it was never going to arrive. The post doesn't offer a very quick service (these days). Still at last it has arrived. Have a nice day. Love, Simone."

Winnie xx

Hi

Le photo de ton block met sur le Forum par Margaret S. Elle a dit qu'il est arrivé que il y a deux jour!!!! Elle a écrit qu'il est très joli et maintenant elle a tout ses blocks sauf pour le sien de Sue (pas "notre" Sue!!) parce qu'elle a des problème avec ses pieds et ne peut pas utiliser sa machine. Elle va le finir assez tôt.

Many thanks Winnie. There was a mistake in the address but that did not appear to be the problem as house number and postcode were correct. I think that it just fancied travelling the scenic route!

Winnie,

DH has posted your block from me today. Hope that it arrives safely. I was in such a rush that I forgot to take a photo.

Thank you very much Margaret. I'm afraid I'm off over to Chamonix on Thursday to help my son moving house - what would they do without their mums?? I won't be back until the 5/6th Dec so won't be able to take a photo myself either until then!! I'll ask DH to let me know about any envelopes/parcels which arrive while I am away and let you know if I can.

Winnie xx

Thank you very much Beryl. I am leaving early tomorrow morning to fly to my son's home in Chamonix in the French Alps. He has a new apartment and, as a bachelor, needs his mum to help with his removal etc - including making all the blinds and curtains - but no patchwork quilts!! I won't be back home until the 6th of Dec.

Because of al of this, I won't be able to acknowledge the arrival of your block. So don't worry when you don't hear from me - it won't mean your package has not arrived. I will let you know as soon as I get home.

Winnie/Margaret xx
