Santa found his lost packages!

Before Christmas I signed up with Char at t*rexes and tiaras for her Secret Santa swap. I love Secret Santas, and swaps and Giveaways – and hope to take part in a few more this year. So, if anyone knows of any going on, please give me a headsup – so I was happy to take part in this one.

But Christmas came…and went…and there was no sign of my parcel. I resigned myself to the fact that it had been lost (or perhaps purloined, as was a birthday card with money in, that my mum sent me.) Until last week I got home from teaching and found a delightfully exoticparcel all the way from South Africa…

In it were lots of delightful goodies – none of which I can show you because of this b *%à!§à# site not loading my photos

But there was:

  • a gorgeous scarf, in greens and browns and yellows, with my favourite sunflowers on it. I have already worn it loads and loads.
  • 4 brilliant cat badges…One is being worn by Mr D (it says “The Cat’s Whiskers” on it!), one by me, one is on my everyday winter hat, and the other is waiting for a home.
  • Six cunning little cat clips
  • A beautiful corsage made from reclaimed fabric.
  • Lemony scented soap
  • Soft and cuddly wool, which has already started being knitted into blankets for Spanish Stray Cats
  • A jolly cat Christmas card

All of these came from Chane at OddOneOut. I love my Secret Santa gift – and I love it all the more because I didn’t think it was going to ever arrive!

 

I’m going to re-blog this post over at Fat Dormouse, so you can see the pictures.

 

One thought on “Santa found his lost packages!

  1. Hi there

    So very glad to hear your parcel has finally got to you. All those goodies….how lovely!!! Would the cat badges be the ones Spanish Strays sell?? If so I have bought some of them and they are wonderful!
    The postage system is crazy!!! I still haven’t received my swap partner’s parcel which she sent on 29th November and she told me that the parcel I sent to her at the end of September for the same swap got to her 3 weeks later yet….my new partner in the Send a little love swap received the parcel I sent her yesterday and I sent it on Wednesday.An incredible 4 days from Spain to the UK. That must be a record!
    keep well
