Recipe for fun!

Do you want to enjoy the holiday season even more than you already are? Well, I can tell you how!

First, take a long walk on a cold afternoon to the post office. Make sure you have a baby in the buggy and two walking children "holding" onto the sides of the buggy.

When you get to the post office, ensure that you get into the slowest and longest line in the history of mankind. That will definitely start the festivities off right!

Oh, and if you aren't stuck standing next to the candies, crisps and chocolates, make sure you get the employees to change the layout of the store for you! Nothing is more fun than standing around while your children attempt to grab and open all of the tempting treats surrounding them!

Don't forget to ply at least one of your children with lots of drinks before you stand in line for 20 minutes so she can perform a little wee-wee dance to entertain everyone in the queue!

When you finally get to the front of the line, and you find out that the main reason you were at the post office in the first place -- to send a package overseas -- is now out of the question because said package will cost you over five times the worth of the contents, don't forget to laugh at life's little ironies!

And don't forget to get into the other queue to pay for the crisps that you bribed your children with, because the lady behind the counter can't ring up the crisps. That's the post office desk only, of course.

Happy Holidays!

Ahhh one of the many joys of the holiday season. So sorry you had rough day. But I know and have felt your pain.

Don't you just love it when it costs that much. I've been doing the exchange thing for 3 years now so am sadly getting used to being stung with a £30 charge. It sucks.
