Hi, just wanted to say a very big thank you to Colmsmum and hurl1234. I received top from Colmsmum and shoes from hurl1234 which I wouldnt have been able to collect so without postage I would have had to done without. I'm really delighted with both items. So from Galway a very big thank you for your generosity.

Best Wishes, Nono

Yes, i'm a big believer in posting. As you stated, it gets items to people who would otherwise have to do without. I use bubblewrap a lot, if needed. its the best thing ever, you can post the most delicate things with this, it's brilliant. Most of the things i have given away have been posted to the takers. I have received items through post also, and i'm very grateful for them. Thanks everyone.

colmsmum 24-07-2008 11:12 PM

What a lovely gesture nono, you've touched my heart. I feel like I've won an award or something, lol! And your very welcome for the top, I'm delighted it's gone to someone who appreciates it.

Best regards,

I would like to thank Mags2 for collecting items from Sabrinabray and MaryLamb for me. Thanks to all three for all the lovely items I received:

The light fittings
The ceramic bowl
The mugs
The Vase
The vents
The Angel
The teddy (sitting here on the bed beside me)
The candles and dish

If I missed anything from the list of very useful to me items which I got from you all please forgive me.

Also to S (can't remember username) in Celbridge thank you so much for the mosaic tiles and all the associated tools, instructions and bits and pieces. I am going to have a very creative winter.

Thanks to Shamrocklady for the trinket box and lamp. Thanks to my sister for collecting from Shamrocklady.

It was like Christmas for me today :)

The world's a better place
Because of folk like you
Who take the time to do nice things
The way you always do.

Thank you so so muchly

Kind Regards

Edited to add: A big thank you to the guy in the battered Micra for collecting everything and delivering them safely to me.

kiara 10-11-2008 01:12 AM

hi there, can someone please tel me how ye all manage posting large items and the postage cost, i know the taker sends postage 1st but if you dont know how much until you post it wouldnt that be a bit tricky? so far iv only posted what i can put in an envelope but i have been asked to post larger things (which i will be doing this week) but we seem to be guessing at prices! i hate saying no to postage if there is a safe way to do it but i also dont want to get stuck with the cost if i post 1st, any suggestions? thanks in advance, kiara x

HappyHunter 10-11-2008 04:02 AM

www.anpost.ie have postage costs according to weight, which is where I get my prices from or you can get a little booklet in the Post Office giving the prices according to weight.

You will need a scales to weight the prepared package in order to do the calculation.

I hope this helps.


kiara 10-11-2008 04:12 PM

thanks hh
thank you, if this the only weigh, he he (sorry) then im going to have to find myself a decent scales... anyone? please? it is for jumbletown business!

I have said this in private to Cormie but feel I need to say it here also:

A BIG thank you to Cormie for the step trolley which I received from him last month. It has been a life saver here for moving heavy bits and pieces from car to house, from house to car, from shed to house and house to shed.

Lots more ongoing work for it here, it has become a very much loved part of my family.

Thank you Cormie
