Hello all, I only just recovered the end of Jan from Shingles and I have now tested positive to covid. Yay me! Lol I believe everyone have received my swaps & I theirs. Please contact me by email if you have an issue. Thanks
I will be signing up for swaps again as soon as I am feeling better I appreyour understanding!
I am recovering from shingles (added to other health issues) and I would like to extend my apologies for some late ratings to the last swaps I received and lack of group participation during this time.
Receiving your swaps helped brighten my otherwise dark time and I am thankful to all of you. ♥️ I will be working my way back to previous swapping levels and honour my commitments to all my groups. Thank you all & Happy New Year 😊
December 16/21 mail fyi
I received a swap letter today that had been delivered to the wrong address about a week ago & just returned to me today by that household. The mail address was correct thus a post office error, additionally I received a mistaken delivery last week for someone in another city?? I understand mail volumes are higher this time of year and mistakes happen so please know I will rate you when I receive your swap and if you have not received my swap please let me know in case it went astray! Thank you♥️
Update: I want to inform my partners that your mail is on it's way but may be delayed due to record breaking rainfall from a massive storm Nov 15, 2021.
"B.C. has declared a state of emergency and a mammoth cleanup effort is getting underway in the wake of devastating floods in the southern part of the province.
The flooding — which has displaced thousands of people and damaged property, transportation networks and other infrastructure — was caused by record rainfall last weekend, with many officials calling the storm that hit the province a once-in-a-century event."
It was surreal - roads ( even major hwys), rail tracks, dams etc were washed out cutting us off from the rest of our Province, our neighbouring Province & the US border. Even our highways on the island were closed. This has created a big problem with shortages in gas & items transported into (& out) of the Province & cities.
I hope my swaps will arrive in a timely manner but if not please understand they are on the way!
Also this can affect mail coming to me as well but I will rate as soon as I get your mail. ♥️
We have also had restrictions on travel & gas use to prevent from running out. Only 30 litter per fill-up & we have been asked to cancelation non essential travel & use public transport.
Thank you for your understanding. 🙂
My name is Tina, I live in Nanaimo, British Columbia located on Vancouver Island, on the West coast of Canada. I have 3 grown children.
Hello 'What's your word 2021 - Jan' Swap
