When I participate in the Secret Post Club, it means that I get post for me... proper post that doesn't involve brown window envelopes that mean I have to fork out money or brochures that always end up in the bucket next to the log burner.
This rather large box was waiting for me when I returned home from work last week:
I opened it and was greeted with hundreds of multi-coloured polystyrene chips. I dug deep and found my gift a little way down the box:
A lovely address book
Two dinky candles
Gorgeous smelling pot pourri (gingerbread cookies and cinnamon tea)
But no note... I had no idea who it was from. I know that this is called the "Secret Post Club" but this is going a tad too far! I checked the spreadsheet and there was no clue on there either. The only thing I could do was to say "thank you" was to leave a message on there and hope that my mystery sender would check back and see my "reveal yourself" message. She did!
So, to the lovely Jelly Monster, this is my official "Thank You Letter".
You all might want to check out her blog or her Twitter feed, both of which seem Skittles-obsessed at the moment!!
My gift (as a sender) is currently winging its way to Malaysia. I hope it arrives safely!!

The Secret Post Club is the brainchild of Heather from Note From Lapland. It has evolved into a rather large gift-swap exercise which is now monitored by Heather and controlled by Elfster and a very natty little Google spreadsheet. If you fancy joining in you can find more details here or drop Heather a message on Twitter where she can be found tweeting as @NoteFromLapland.
