To my amazing Secret Santa

Thank you soooo much. Your gifts were amazing...seriously!

DS woke up at 5.45am yesterday (yay for me) and tore into the lounge room and opened two of the pressies. The rudolph plate and the the body lotion. I love Maxwell Williams and have two dinner sets in my cupboard. So we left Santa some chocolates on the rudolph plate along with his mandatory Moet.

Love the smell of the body lotion.

Super in love with the star plate as well, its gorgeous. Thank you (I think   xmas_blink.gif ) lol, for the jigsaw. I used to do large ones like that pre-child so know it will call to me one day and my dining room table will not be used for eating. i think those brown/gold coloured pieces might do my head in but will have to finish it. I get slightly obsessed with them.

And as for the white marshmallows - white is my favourite and I didn't know you could get just white.

I've had people that have known me for years not do so well in gifts that I love so I just have to say again, the pressies were amazing.

A huge thank you and Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Love BCC and DS.

Thank you so very very much to my secret santa.

I got 10 scented tealight from Dusk which were the Gardenia,lilly of the valley and fresh fruits and a lovely container to burn them in.  The lovely scents perfumed the cupboard they were stored in.  The scents are not overpowering and they are lovely.  If I can get over my hangover I will burn one today.

I absolutely love Bodyshop products so the Bodyshop strawberry (favourite flavour) lip balm was great.  I will use it when I go away.

Thanks once again for the great pressie.  The house will be smelling nice in no time and the lip balm will keep my lips silky smooth.  biggrin.gif

To my lovely Secret Santa, thank you, thank you, thank you.

You put so much thought into my gift and I LOVE everyting.  Thank you so much, what a wonderful surprise on Christmas morning.

SS bought me chocolate moulds, cookie cutters which cut cookies you can hang the side of a cup  biggrin.gif , an icing pen (which I have never seen before and can't wait to try) and the cutest tea ball with a cookie on it, which will go perfectly with the new tea cup I received from a friend.

Thank you so much for taking the time for secret santa.

I hope you and your family had a wonderful christmas also.

Thank you very much to my Secret Santa! I apologise for my rather late reply, but we just got back from 8 days away and I discovered my gift in the letterbox.

The books are perfect and just what I like to read and the chocolate block has already been hidden away in the back of the pantry where no one else can see it original.gif

Thank you again. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas xx

I forgot to update my post in the rush of having 18 here for Xmas lunch/dinner, sorry.  

Thankyou SS for my lovely gift, which is currently in use as we've had people coming and going through our spare rooms over the last few days...

I was given a Frangipani frangrance oil that you put bamboo sticks in to diffuse into the air (not sure what they're called) and it was a lovely gift to receive and the most eagerly awaited as it was a complete surprise to us all - and I made it wait til last. original.gif

Thankyou very much to My SS -  the journal is lovely and is going to be my idea/muse book for the year  wub.gif Fridge magnet is right at home with my others CCL ones, and the little quotation book is fab.

I love getting things that are a total surprise, thankyou very much !

huge big thank you to my wonderful Santa!! wub.gif

I loved the candle!!! (so did the kids)... Gorgeous smell too. It has pride of place on our display/photo cabinet. DD1 (7) promptly put it up on the highest shelf she could reach to ensure its safety so that DS & DD2 didn't try to get into it - as they have ruined/broken a few in the past.

Also love the lip balm. Very very cute & lovely flavour.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas - thank you for your thoughtful gifts. Apologies though for my late update. blush.gif
