???

Why is it that the more you want something the longer it takes to arrive? OR is that fact that it's taking longer than last time a good thing? AND when it finally arrives will I have the courage to open it?
So many questions but so few answers.

I know exactly how you are feeling..but sadly don't know the answrs!

Karen said...

It's always the way! I do hope you have the courage to open it when it arrives, and that you get a lovely surprise :o)

Colette McCormick said...

Jenny - who does?
Karen - so do I.

Amanda said...

Waiting's horrid! Fully sympathise, Colette X

Colette McCormick said...

Amanda - waiting is REALLY horrid. Still doing it though.

It will come when you are busy thinking about something else. Or, as my grandmother would have said, a watched pot never boils.

LilyS said...

Good things come to those who wait. Thats about the extent of my wisdom! Best of luck x

Colette McCormick said...

Joanne - I'd better take my eyes off that kettle.
Lily - Hope so.

David said...

I have to say I'm not very good at waiting. I'm an obsessive checker. Is my email still working? How can I be sure? Has the postman come yet? I wonder if a letter could have got lost in the post? Compulsive and obsessive. That's me! Oh dear.

Really hope the wait won't be too much longer and will be worth it.

Colette McCormick said...

I am there with you David. I am constantky checking if there is a new email.

I even check the postbox on a Sunday just in case it got delivered to someone else house by mistake and they've only just remembered to drop it through my door as they were passing.

I'm waiting to hear from PF. I hope you have some good news too, Colette.

Colette McCormick said...

Hearing from PF is never a problem for me Jarmara. I usually get it the day after I send them something.

Oh Colette, I couldn't agree with you more. This may sound a little random but I am currently waiting for two new jaw replacements to come from America! Until they come, I have to wait for the surgery. I can't tell you how the days are dragging.

I hope you have news soon. I am keeping fingers crossed with your situation that no news is good news.

warm wishes

Debbie

Colette McCormick said...

Two jaw replacements! Good grief Debbie that puts what I'm waiting for into perspective, and I am still waiting by the way. Oh well there's always tomorrow.

Olivia Ryan said...

Very true Colette, and I'm in the same boat! As everyone says, we need to occupy ourselves with loads of other things and try to forget what we're waiting for. But that's easier said than done ...

Suzanne Jones said...

Arriving late - so hope whatever you were waiting for has arrived and that it proved to be all you'd wished for.

Colette McCormick said...

I'm trying Olivia but like you say - much easier said than done.
No news yet Suzanne I'm afraid.
