My goodies arrived earlier last week; my apologies for the delay in acknowledging my thanks!!   :sick:

And...it looks like what I've sent won't arrive until Tuesday.  It's been that kind of year, I'm sorry.   ::)

Thanks very much @Chris L for the CDs of Side Show and Love's Labours Lost I opened when we got home from my folks'. Now the traditional interminable selfish wait for time alone to indulge in the unique thrill of the First Listen to an Unfamiliar Score  ;) ;D :-[
Morals tomorrow

Thank you very much to my generous Secret Sondheim, who sent me both Waitress and The Great Comet. I may try to get a last-minute ticket to the touring production of Waitress, which lis playing through Sunday.

My Secret Sondheim also gave me a nice little puzzle to work on, knowing that my brain needs more of these experiences as it ages. :)

Belated thanks to Aileen!!  She got me "Come From Away" and "The Last Ship".  I think that is an excellent pairing and, like Martin, must figure out when I'll listen to them.  The commute to work is always an option but then I won't be able to give full concentration to what I'm hearing.  This is a nice quandary to have!
I no longer long for the old view!

My secret Sondheim sent me a Milwaukee spice set from Penzeys! Taste of home to go with my new Dear Evan Hansen sheet music and Phantom on Blu-ray. So incredibly generous! Thank you thank you!

Lovely JenniferLillian sent me the CD for A Little Night Music and a sexy face mask so I don't inhale the smoke around here. Our skies are back to mostly blue, but there is still a little brown going on. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness!  I love our Secret Sondheim adventure. Thank you Tom for organizing!!!

I received "Come From Away" and "The Very Best of Max Boyce"! Max is a Welsh comedian and folk singer according to Wikipedia.  My Secret Santa didn't sign his gifts, but from his note I assume he is Welsh.  I thought I knew whom it was, until I realized we have two from Wales in the exchange. BUT I think Martin is an Englishman (or half English) living in Wales, so I'm going with Leighton (who is a Welshman living in England!) I can't wait to listen to Max! Thank you either :-*

I am indeed an immigrant from the other side of Offa's Dyke,  so I suspect your deduction is correct  :)

Da iawn!  Hope you enjoyed both :) I think Max gives a genuinely accurate (and funny!) sense of Welshes.  Do let me know how CFA is, as well - I am quite intrigued!
Thank you, too, to you for my two lovely books!  "Everything Was Possible' and 'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn', both of which are on my pile to read!

The package that I thought was for me turned out to be for Chris since we were using the same list. I still haven't received mine. I'm sure it's on its way.

I've thanked Graeme privately for my present, but I want to thank him publicly here. It not only got here a week before Christmas, making it the first present under the tree, but Graeme tells me there's another present on its way. I hope that, if we make it back to the UK anytime soon, we'll get to see Graeme in Bath. We almost saw him this time, but passed through so quickly in a tour bus that we never thought to call him. Next time, Graeme!
But us, old friend,
What's to discuss, old friend?

I received a wonderful and abundant gift package from @scenicdesign71 (aka Scenic Dave) accompanied by a card that depicts one of his stunning set renderings. The back of the card shows the drop being painted.

The gift included some yummy treats, which I will share with Chris, two CDs and a DVD from my list, and a novel entitled The Yacoubian Building. I look forward to enjoying all of this stuff. 

Thank you so much, Dave!

And, @scenicdesign71, those chocolates are to die for.  ;)
