Thank you Secret Santa

Yes, you guessed right; this is a heartfelt thank you post to the blogger who was my Secret Santa 🙂

I totally love the idea of the Secret Santa – you get the name of the blogger and a budget and off you go… read, and then read some more and then go hunting for the perfect gift.

This year I took part in Twin Mummys Newbie Bloggers! Facebook group Secret Santa. We all were allocated one blogger each and given a budget of £10.

I think sometimes it is not so easy to find the right thing. I struggled a lot with the choice of my gift… I’ve read post after post… changed months… dug deep into the archives but I was still not an inch closer to finding something personal about my gift recipient that could guide me to a nice gift… Finally there was one post which gave me some insight into their likes and dislikes and this was all I had to go on… I hope I did well with my choice… or at least partially good…

I think my Secret Santa did a fantastic job… here are my gifts…

Thank you Secret Santa

We use coasters a lot as we have wooden stained furniture and I even featured some on the blog and of course we love our pets so it works out perfectly.

Thank you Secret Santa.Thank you Secret Santa..

The coasters are really well made and I am very pleased with them but my favourite part of the gift is by far the key ring…

Thank you Secret Santa...

I normally don’t use key rings as I have my keys on a lead around my neck just to make things easier but this one I will use for sure. It will be joined by my car keys.

I love this key ring and I totally love the quote on it.

Home is where your Dog is!

This is so true!

Secret Santa, you where spot on with this gift; it is just right for me and it put a huge grin on my face; Thank you!

Did you ever play Secret Santa to someone?

Who / What Am I? 03/01

We have a New Year full of wonders to be discovered, and endless stream of moments each ripe with possibility and yet as a rock of certainty I still bring you the Who / What Am I?  series, it must be a Friday 🙂, the first Friday of 2014!

I had great plans… a plan of writing something different, more inspiring for the beginning of this lovely New Year, but… as you already know we have a leak, so not feeling very inspired more worried, therefore forgive me if I am brief…

Last week I asked you to guess what my Blogger Secret Santa gifts were…  the answer given of “cheese” made me laugh but I think my favourite was “a paint scraper” – Colonialist I really like your thinking… looking at the picture it does look like one or maybe a car window scraper…

There was one right answer – chocolate! I received 2 bars of lovely chocolate, a slice of cake shaped storage tin (although it might be good for a cheese) and a set of measuring cups or rather should I say hearts…

I liked my gifts a lot. The cake shaped tin was a nice touch… I didn’t even have a glimmer of an idea that you can buy one of those. I really like it! Big thank you to my Secret Santa <3

I was also thinking about mixing up my pictures a bit and maybe giving them a bit of a twist but as stated above not in the mood today for creative thinking, so maybe next week I will try to implement my new ideas… if the house hasn’t fallen down, yes drama queen but at the moment I think I have the right to be one…

Anyway for this week you have something green… I would say it is wide open to interpretation…

Happy New Year one an all.

Hello,

All this build up before Christmas and now… everything is all over.

What a shame… but not to worry… only 363 days to go… and we will have Christmas again 🙂

I hope that you all had a wonderful time… now time for the build up to New Years Eve and a big party.

Anyhow…

Last week picture was a…

dry grass… yes, it was so simple 🙂

No special grass what so ever, so I hope I didn’t disappoint anyone. I just like that picture.

This week however I have something totally different.

You might wonder why?

So… here is why…

This year I took part in a Blogger Secret Santa. We were matched with other bloggers and we were supposed to pick the perfect gift for them based on their blog posts/ Twitter feed etc…

So, I would like you to guess what I got 🙂 Too make it just a bit easier and too give you a fighting chance you can see the shape of my gifts.

This was actually a lot of fun. I hope that my Secret Santa recipient liked the gift I picked. I didn’t have any feedback, but I also didn’t disclose myself to them so how could I get a feedback…  silly me…

Without any further a due… here are my 3 gifts… I hope you can guess what I received…
