Finally, after soooooo long waiting, the container of silk lanterns from Vietnam has arrived!! My excitement levels are completely out of control!!! :-)
Due to delays with typhoons, customs documents, port strikes, etc. etc. I couldn't believe my eyes this morning when the truck finally arrived!!
Here it comes ...... mmmmmmmm such a big truck - is it all going to fit??????
20 foot container door is open - its just like Xmas day!!!!! If only Santa was here to bring it all inside for me!
Need the step ladder so I can climb up and in. My job cause I'm the weakest and smallest is to pass down the boxes. I tell you, its harder work than any gym visit!
Oh no ....... it doesn't all fit inside the double garage. Will have to squeeze it down the hallway, in the lounge, in the spare bedroom ....
Here is a very unflattering pic of myself after unloading the container. Unfortunately its over 30 degrees again today and humidity over 80% too!
Thankfully I had two other keen helpers. Thanks Wayne and Eric. Patsy just watched this time (not so helpful)!
Well, my arms are like jelly, and every muscle is aching... Going to have a little rest, a coffee, and a choclate reward - then start to open boxes!!!! The adrenaline rush of new stuff will overcome my fatigue (I hope).
Will post pics of all the new stuff soon.... Yipee :-)
Hope to have it all available in Lanternshop in the next few days!
