WOYWW 230 - happy mail day

Welcome to another Wednesday...and another WOYWW.  I know we often say this, but are there only one in the week? They seem to happen so quickly one after the other... and here we are, nearly November... don't get me started on where 2013 has gone to!

The end of the month is always really busy in my office, and I was late home on Tuesday, so I was delighted to find on the door mat, not one, not two, but three - yes 3!!! packets for me... oops, Helen's been shopping again!

Stamps, (on offer)  more stamps, (brand new release) and dies..I don't really "do" Halloween, but I saw these little bat dies, when I was getting the cute little birds, and couldn't resist...
I make no apologies. None. I wanted them.....

I always say that I will visit as many of you as possible. I will say so again, but it is likely that I won't get to many of you, until at least the weekend, if then... but I will try!

Thank you so much for your visit, Helen: it meant a lot; as I know you've been rushed off your feet at work. You deserved those lovely new stamps! No need to apologize - you worked for them! Now let's hope you get some playtime when you can use them soon! Julie Ann xx #20
