As you may have gathered from the previous few day's blog entires, I had been off for a few days, and had returned to leap right in with a dispatch blog - which is actually a good idea to get my brain working again after yesterday's travelling nightmares (my plane was delayed, encountered at least 3-4 traffic congestion problems on the drive home, varying from white lines being repainted, construction work, who knows what, and following diversion signs in the dark on some very misleading country roads I didn't know existed)
Right off the bat, I saw a large gift basket order being dispatched today.
Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. It is indeed 4 baskets in the photo there. And it's not a corporate client sending gifts to their valued customers/employees. These 4 baskets are all going to one family in Prestatyn, UK - the Thompsons.
Now you're curious, what occasion possibly justify sending 4 gift baskets at once?
Well, you see, the Thompson's parents are in Australia, and it seems like they may have missed an occasion or few. They are sending the 1st Birthday Gift (bottom right) for their grandchild's birthday which they missed. The Gourmet Delight (top right) is for Mark's birthday, Deserving Treats (top left) if for Stephy's birthday (both belated gifts) and then the Ancient York basket (bottom left) is for their Wedding Anniversary, and by the sounds of it, the only gift that's getting there on time and not late.
I can just imagine Mark and Stephy's face tomorrow when they receive the gifts. They'd be surprised and baffled on receiving the large delivery boxes coming through the door! We hope it would be a great surprise!
