Mine and Nik's arrived this morning too. Mum won't let us poke them...

There is another Receivee who's parcel is going to be late, but i can't remember who they are at the moment, so if there are people waiting for pressies after Christmas, then that's who it'll be...

I got my secret santa too, the other day - haven't opened it yet, I am restraining myself for christmas morning, when little Leah said she'll help me open my gifts.....

Obviously, I have reached the grand old age of 47 without learning to open my own prezzies!

Thank you Secret Santa!!

Eccentric Emma - Santa says that he's had to re-shoe rudolph so your delivery has been delayed.

Thankyou Thankyou Secret Santa! I can't remember when I have been so excited about a parcel. Havent opened it yet, but only a few hours to go! It is very heavy! I think it was a brilliant idea! I know half the fun is that it's a secret, but you know who you are, so thankyou! pbf

Don't know who sent ours - but it's perfect! Thank you who ever you are!
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!

Thank you Santa! I think I'm getting a bit of a reputation as a tea drinker, and now I can read my leaves afterwards :thumbright:

Thank you very, very much, Santa... (Still absolute secret - no idea who is was!) Definitely somebody with lots of talent in the arts and crafts department. :santa:

And the cats say "meouw" - that's Cat for Thank you! Now their human just has to remember to sow the catnip... :?

Thank you to my Secret Oldfella Santa! What a splendid gift - It was so exciting to receive a HEAVY (must have cost a fortune to post) parcel from France - looking forward to tasting the Vin de Noix - and of course sewing the Selfsufficientish Patch to my overalls/jacket. A wonderful present - thank you very very much! :santa: :flower:

Thank you very much to whoever sent me the Terry Walton book and the teabag. I've heard him on the Wiggly Wigglers podcast a couple of time and he was hilarious, so I'm looking forward to reading the book.
