I've received a package from the far and mysterious land of Australia! The post office did their work on the packaging, and I could not resist opening it today.



Inside I've found a Peppa the Pig plushie, which was immediately hidden for my 4 year old son who likes that cartoon. There were two books -- one with logic puzzles (and I've put it into my commute backpack to kill time on the train) and one with a novel from GRR Martin -- one I actually had no idea he had written (!).



And the last present (and probably most complicated to get) was a pack of Dungeons&Dragons figures (We just played a game on Tuesday) Inside there was a human Red Wizard, Orc Fighter, Ogre Mage and a Ballista. No dragon



Thank you, Secret Santa! Merry Christmas!

Well how excited was I and my two kids to receive a special parcel from Santa - I knew they had been good but wasn't sure how my log book was rating - anyway we were all very pleased - my daughter loved her Victoria Secret bag and hair ties and my guitarist son loved his accessories and for me - I look forward to reading about the Burning Man festival.....might even be inspired to go there one day . THANK YOU SO MUCH SANTA for your thoughtful gifts - all the best for the Christmas season.

I took care of that.... if you voted in the FT TB elections, you lost the icon... and it did not come back after the elections. I just noticed that yesterday... and worked to get it fixed!

OMG, OMG, OMG, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Secret Santa #1. I'm technologically challenged so can't post a photo but I just received a PHENOMENAL gift!!! Herbes de Provence, Happy Holiday tea towels, a cat toy for my babies, Mango gummy candies (can't wait to try!!!), TWO amenity kits and a set of airline PJs (YAY!!!!! -- includes an Aeroflot kit to add to my collection!!!). Also two stunningly gorgeous wine bottle plates/dishes/art -- frankly, I'm not sure exactly what they are intended to be but I absolutely LOVE them. I intend to the hang them as artwork (they REALLY are that unique and beautiful), though they would appear to have multiple uses. Thank you, Secret Santa -- you obviously put a lot of time and effort into your gift giving and I want you to know that it is VERY MUCH appreciated!!!! I didn't mention in my info that I collect art glass, so I guess Santa really DOES know all.

I believe those are meant to be cheese plates.... hanging them might make that difficult....

Friendly reminder from Chief Santa.... I have lots of blank spots in my spreadsheet.... lots of people have not notified me that they have shipped their gifts....

I ask you to PLEASE not wait until the last second to ship.... and make sure you notify me of what you ship when you do ship.

But they are WAAAAY too beautiful NOT to have them on display -- I'll take them off the wall (and wash before use) for my next wine and cheese party.
