Conundrum

A bit of a conundrum today, but first ...

Small-N-Grubby was poorly in the night with a high temperature, symptoms very similar to his sister a couple of weeks ago. He seems much better this morning and is upset to be missing one of his new school visits - a class picnic. He keeps asking if I will ring and get them to move it to another day, bless.

Before all this happened yesterday I needed to get some quick birthday cards made up. I used the Hobbycraft toppers that I was given, the ones I wasn't too sure about. They don't look quite so bright once you separate them out individually.
I've added a few more mats to layer them up a bit. The next one is my favorite so far.

I think this next one will probably go to SMO's dad.


So, on to the conundrum. Amtrack delivered a huge box to me this morning, way exciting. I have won a major magazine prize, won't say for now until the mag is out. The box is full of lovely goodies for which I am most grateful. BUT (big but) there is one of the main prizes missing. So what is the etiquette here, do you contact them and make a discreet enquiry or does that just sound greedy and ungrateful. Help, what do I do?????

I'd definetly say something,in the nicest possible way of course lol....its not greedy to ask or say something - Im sure they'd be more than happy to sort things out.

First off: congrats on the win!

I'd contact them. You can always say you're just checking whether the missing item has gone astray in transit or something.

Congratulations on winning the prize - and, yes, you should say something in the nicest way - something like you wonder whether perhaps it's coming separately
