Looking at the same direction - The Poppet story again;)

I was hoping to show some new purchases I made some time ago by now, but they didn't arrive yet. :( I really am worried because again it seems my post-office's lost another parcel - it's been 5 weeks now... So instead of the progress in the office I am showing this story to you.:) There is a sentence in my country - you might know it too:" The love is not about looking at each others eyes but is about looking at the same direction". ;D

Miałam szczerą nadzieję pokazać Wam jakis postęp w gabinecie, ale niestety znów wszystko wskazuje na to, że poczta polska zagubiła mi kolejną paczkę...Czekam na nią już 5 tygodni, na kolejną już tydzień, a że obie były wysyłane tylko priorytetem to tracę już nadzieję, że ta dłużej idąca w ogóle dojdzie...:( Więc dzis zamiast gabinetu taka fotka Poppeta. Zupełnie niezależnie skojarzyła mi się z tym zdaniem: Miłosć to nie patrzenie sobie w oczy, ale patrzenie w tym samym kierunku. ;)

I hope you get your packages soon and that they are not lost :( How true about looking in the same direction. Take care Eva :)

The Old Maid said...

Thanks so much Victoria! I still have a little hope yet....

I'll keep my fingers crossed that you'll get your parcel after five weeks plus one day... Thank you for making this great quotation visual with this wonderful photo.

I hope they arrive! I hate losing parcels, to date it's been only one and I order tons via the post.

Wishing for an update on the Snapes office soon! ;o))

The Old Maid said...

Thank you Brigit I truly hope so too. Glad you like the photo and sentence :)

The Old Maid said...

I will try, I promiss Michelle :) The post-office lost one parcel this year already so I am really a bit nervous with every order now. What is strange sometimes it takes 2 days for the order to arrive and sometimes about a month from the same country.

Espero que lo puedas solucionar y recibas cuanto antes tu paquete.
Aqui tambien suele suceder muchas veces.
Feliz fin de semana.
besitos ascension

I'll put in my wish about the late parcel, too, Ewa - I hope it arrives soon!
The saying is a wise one - poppet and camel are lovely together :) they remind me of the moon-gazing hares of mythology.

I love that sentence, had not heard it before.

I do hope your parcel turns up very soon.

If you are ordering from the USA then delivery varies enormously, I get some parcels within 7 days and others it takes 5 weeks! Europe's okay, it takes between 3 and 7 days depending which country! :o))

I try and get insurance added wherever I can, especially if it's valuable (but then it's normally already included in the postage).

Ewa, thank you for showing the Poppet with his friend the Camel... I love how the Camel is looking in the same direction.... they are made for each other!
I hope your package arrives soon! Even our mail service here in the States is not as reliable as it used to be.... I think the Postal Service is struggling to keep up with the changes in the technology world! I am wishing you good luck with this package!

Espero que no sea definitiva la perdida.
Besos Clara

The Old Maid said...

Thank you and muchas gracias, Ladies!
Michelle, the missing parcel was sent from UK - and that is what worries me the most :(
Glenda - I was thinking about the skies too but since the photo was taken inside the idea of the sentence appeared ;)

Sans! said...

Love the saying :). I think it is a great picture, Ewa :) and of course, when I see a camel. I will ride as quickly as I can to your post. haha

I hope your parcel arrive soon!

The Old Maid said...
