Kia ora Lesley,
I am very pleased to say that a few days ago I received my parcel.  It made my day.  It was great to receive a few things from home - yes I am a Kiwi.  Living in Holland for the past 37 years.  Once a Kiwi always a Kiwi.

Hi, just wanted to let you know that the NZ Santa arrived today.  The Santa is for a friend who is a marathon swimmer.  She swam the Cook Straits a few years ago.  We were in NZ to cheer her on.  I got a small Santa then and gave to her.  A friends dog eat it and so I am very happy to be able to replace that Santa with another.
