Mine was waiting for me when I came in from work. OH opened the envelope and saw that there was an intruction saying open and enjoy immediately. So just to ensure that we stay on Santas good list we obeyed dutifully :santa: I don't know who they are from but I think who ever it is must be psychic - it truly is just what I wanted for christmas! Thank you who ever you are (but I think I may have an idea! :wink: )
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

Oh come on that's not fair. What did you get???? Or are you going to make us wait until Christmas to find out?

Just picked up my Secret Santa--all the way from France. What is weird is that they posted this parcel on the same day I posted my Secret Santa! :shock:

Now here is the problem. I have already squeezed it and gently shook it. Do I REALLY have to wait a whole FOURTY-EIGHT hours to open it? I mean it will be Christmas somewhere soon, right? I am just no good with suspense! But I will try to be good--honestly. :mrgreen:

A big THANK-YOU to SANTA/ Un gros "MERCI" a Secret Santa :hugish: I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and the very best in 2010. / Joyeux Noël et les meilleurs souhaits pour le nouvel an

I had two lovely bath fizzers that smell fab. I can't wait to use them.

Thank you so much, Canada.

Sorry to be so late in thanking my Secret Santa, but have only just got home from a few days away. She was very clever and made me a lovely candle, and the perfect woolly hat for walking on the beach. I think she knew! Thankyou so much, I'm not as clever as the others, I couldn't read the postmark, but it made my Christmas! pbf.

My Secret Santa sent me a little mixed package 0f goodies from England and France. I loved the book, the seeds and the candy! :santa:

I am glad everyone has enjoyed their Secret Santas and now all there is left to do is dream it all up again for next year!

Best wishes to all for 2010. :hugish:

Now my Santa wasn't a secret was she? So a HUGE thanks to Flibbsey. We all loved the Rhubarb syrup :drunken:

The The bags would have been present enough...methinks you cheated the £5 rule! :hugish:
