Good morning. New week, new luck. Irish summer has been given a little extension. This week we are having temperatures of 20+°C every day. Yes, in Ireland that means it is “hot”, and I am dressed for the occasion
because I do not get the opportunity for sleeveless summer dresses very often. Here you see the evidence →. I’ve brought my macbook down into the kitchen because my office on the other side of the house is too warm. Guess I never thought I’d write *that* sentence. Not least at 9.30am on a September morning 😂. In Ireland. 🤣 Anyway, before I throw myself into today’s work (translating a fashion article on Yeezy slides…), I thought I’d check in here.
The recent slew of (almost) daily posts has been really fun for me. It always cheers me up to post on my blog. That’s thanks to you! I still have to post the last of the three RAPSes that were sold in the fundraiser, and I have another fun little post up my sleeve, but today I thought I’d react to something that was mentioned to me via e-mail and on Twitter. Besotted called it “the gift that keeps on giving”, i.e. she said “I love how the auctions are continuing on by the winners posting photos of their loot when they receive it. It’s fabulous.” And Kate tweeted “I want to thank everyone who’s been sharing their #RA50Auctions happy mail. I get such vicarious joy from seeing the goodies.”
I’ve been enjoying those tweets, too, and in the spirit of extending the pleasure (and hopefully *not* flogging a dead horse), here are some of the “hauls” as seen on Twitter. (Apologies if I have left anyone out – I am going through my Twitter TL to find those tweets again, and sometimes they hide away…) This is going to be a bit of a scroll fest… You are in for the long haul 😂
Thanks to all for sharing their packages, and for the sweet sentiments. So much gorgeous stuff! You would think we had hundreds of auctions running 😂.
That’s what I call window shopping.
entirely false reputation as an efficient organiser, I have not ticked off received shipments on the list of buyers. Maybe I should have 😬… But since I didn’t, I don’t know whether *everything* has already arrived with the new owners. I do hope so, and I know that some parcels are still on the road or being picked up as we speak. So hopefully some more shared loots coming!
Have a bright and happy start into the week!
