I find it quite insulting to be called flash. That isn't my intention at all.


Apologies if you thought I was in any way criticising or insulting you. The “we’re not all moneybags” was the only part aimed at you and that was just a jokey “lol rich Denny” meme.

I wasn’t calling you flash, the £300 was just a large number I picked for the post - the intention was solely to illustrate to Wedgie that we only care about thought and effort, not the cash value of gifts.

You’re the absolute heart of GR SS and not because you spend a lot, but because you put so much effort in. And the last thing I’d want to do is insult you for your generosity.

No worries.

Serves you right for being so damn flash.

I haven't got mine either, but when I signed up I gave Cora a message for my Santa that I would be away for Christmas so they shouldn't bust a nut trying to get it out to me if time was tight as I was happy to get it in January.

You're welcome!

There's actually another present still to come, it was supposed to release on 20th December but Amazon mailed me on the 21st to say the release date had been pushed back to 3rd January.


And thanks to you NBK!

Thanks Albear! :wub:

Didn't you buy for me before like 5-6 years ago? I'm almost certain I've got your card you sent me back then on it as well (iirc you bought me the Shigeru Matsuzaki Best of Album)

EDIT: You did! Found the post from 5 years ago :wub:

Thanks for my awesome gifts Dowbocop, all greatly appreciated! :toot:

Denster - massive apologies that mine is getting to you late, my mix up at the post office unfortunately. According to tracking the package is on its way to the delivery depot and will hopefully be with you ASAP. Again, sorry that it's going to be a late one, I was cutting it fine for a variety of reasons but really did expect to still get it out to you in time for the big day.
