This year I signed up for my lovely friend Carmen's Secret Santa swap - I was going to join in last year but the sign up cut off came just after I lost Mum and I wasn't in the right frame of mind - but this year I was there like a shot!
I didn't get a very good photo of the parcel before I packed it to take away at Christmas - this doesn't show the true size!
Now, there was a bit of a hiccough with me actually getting this, as there was a mix up with the name and address of who it was coming to, but rather than wait for Royal Mail to send it back to Santa to be sent back to me, Santa - with a day to do it - replicated the original..... so I would have it in time... Who says Santa doesn't exist..... so a HUGE thank you to Santa for being so incredibly generous in the first place - and for the effort she went to, to do it all over again!! - and to Carmen for hosting this swap.
Santa has done a great job of stalking my blog, she seems to know me so well!! I begged Carmen to tell me who Santa was before the big reveal, and I've been given permission to reveal that it was her good friend Virginia - so thank you!
(p.s. I nearly burnt the dinner finishing this post, but I think you'll agree it was worth it!)
