Sadly my other recipient has said nothing despite a November 30th delivery.....

Next year will be interesting for cross border sending as VAT/sales tax and import duties are being stepped up by everyone and seventeen million muppets in the UK voted to destroy our country...... Like we were the most liked folk in the world before Brexit....

Thank you so very much Santa what amazing gifts. I especially love the home grown mushrooms, both as they will be home grown and also that it involves using some of our coffee grounds mountain!

The children and I have already played the 3 pigs game and is an instant favourite, good game for anyone else looking btw

The cheese making scares me, so I'm thrilled to try it - especially as Jamie Oliver was claiming last week that we've far better milk than Italy and so should be able to make all their cheese so much better......

Will report back my coffee drinking Santa

A very merry Christmas to all, I don't know how many else of you work for yourselves in a company of one but this Secret Santa really makes Christmas so much more fun as I miss having one at "work"

We've a great community made better by those taking part and especially Wharvey who deserves those Hamilton tickets more than ever......

Thanks Santa and thanks William

To my Secret Santa who shopped on Amazon: can't wait to see what is one of the gifts from you, the cat made off with it and attempted to open it tonight. He believes it's for him, we'll have to see.

And in a truly delightful reversal: today I received a gift from one my of Santees! He managed to decipher my name and address from label on his present, despite my best effort at camouflaging it, and surprised me with gift. Joshua362, thank you very much!

I picked up the second part of my gift from MissChele from the leasing office today. I apologize, but I havenít had a chance to take a nice picture with everything.

I received a painting brush set, two sets of acrylic paints, two flat blank canvases, two cat toys (which have been approved with two paws up), a cute magnet with a map of Kentucky, and a sweet note on a postcard.

Thanks so much! Iíve started looking through the acrylic painting techniques book that arrived earlier. Now I just need to figure out a setup that wonít end with paw prints across the canvas.

Have you contacted Wharvey or HeadElf? They could follow up with your Santa, see what the problem is. It may be customs issue or delayed in shipping.
