Back2Two Fri 07-Sep-12 08:29:03

Marking space and want to be part of the fuzzy loveliness but don't know what's happening!


I want to be part of it too, what do I have to do?

<feels left out> sad

Trazzletoes Fri 07-Sep-12 08:32:22

Oh hell, feeling the pressure to produce something luffly now!

Nagoo Fri 07-Sep-12 09:48:45

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 12:56:02

My THING arrived all packaged up! And on the outside of the envelope it said "A THING" in big black letters...and DH said "A thing? " as he handed me the post!

grin and I opened it up and there was a cute little bag with a tissue wrapped parcel from lovely Norks xxx

NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 12:59:13

And I opened it and there was a gorgeous green beady charm keyring with a horse on and ribbons! And I love horses! grin Isn't it lovely?

This lovely idea has given me such a nice boost and I can't wait to get my THINGS out on Monday now! Thank you so much Norks thanks

NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 13:00:20

Click on the pic to see it better.

Trazzletoes Sat 08-Sep-12 13:05:57

I can't wait to get my THINGS out on Monday now!

<snigger> sorry blush

NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 13:09:04

grin Oh my God! Some people Trazzle!

NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 13:10:13

It was very Alice in Wonderland actually! "A THING" on this little know...could well have said "DRINK ME" on the other!

Nagoo Sat 08-Sep-12 13:16:38

smile aaaaaaaahhhhh! smile joy joy joy smile

FalseStartered Sat 08-Sep-12 13:24:46

<sees bar has been set high already> [gulp]

NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 13:24:49

I am happy to be the first official receiver of a THING in the MOOG! (Mumsnet Orgy of Giving"

GOLDFaverolles Sat 08-Sep-12 13:28:20

Marking place.
When my thing arrives, could I email a pic of it to someone else, as you can't put photos on from an iPad (are you listening MNHQ?)

Nagoo Sat 08-Sep-12 13:28:47

I love it, a MOOG!

please don't be put off by norks talent, I am quite willing to send out total dross and be pleased by the thought that a person is excited opening something that isn't a bill grin

Nagoo Sat 08-Sep-12 13:29:25

Fav, I'll pm you my email smile

FalseStartered Sat 08-Sep-12 13:29:48

<hearts Nagoo for saying that>


OrangeandGoldMrsDeVere Sat 08-Sep-12 13:29:51

What have I missed? I already got tons of lovely things at Christmas so not angling for any more. Would like to know what's occurring though smile

NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 13:31:44

That's right Nagoo! It's getting a little pressie that's not in a nappy or a bin bag that has thrilled me beyond measure!

NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 13:33:20

here is the thread to ask about it MrsDevere and there is another for putting your name down.

OrangeandGoldMrsDeVere Sat 08-Sep-12 13:38:06

Thanks smile

So glad you liked it! Horse was a complete coincidence- spooky eh? Isn't this just grin ?

NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 13:53:32

Yes it is! I love horses! And I also love green! Very woo! grin

DH was most amused when I explained what A THING meant! grin

I got a thiong (spelling is correct) grin from Norks.

I don't know how to put pictures up like NC though

Norks Are you psychic?? I've just looked at mine and there is a butterfly on it.

Gues what?

I love butterflies!


NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 14:47:59

Have you got pics that you can put on your comp or laptop fanjo? Do you know how to put them on your profile?

I can put them on profile. I'm using my phone.

I'll attempt it now

NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 14:52:27

Ooh good! If you want, I can try to then put them on here for you? I'm not sure if that's possible...but it might be.

NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 15:00:49

And make your profile public too Fanjo! grin

Is it public?

ParsleyTheLioness Sat 08-Sep-12 15:24:30

I sees it Fanjo...

NCForNow Sat 08-Sep-12 15:28:17


It's on my bag already grin

Nagoo Sat 08-Sep-12 17:28:39

Woooo! Happy happy people getting things!

tidybaby Sat 08-Sep-12 17:49:57

Just received my absolutely beautiful thing from Norks! I love it, but it's made me feel a bit ashamed of the effort you're going to receive blush but it's being made with love, so I hope you like it. It's almost finished, just a leg to go now wink

Anything made with love is automatically lovely.
Anything chosen and packaged and taken to the post office and sent with love is lovely.


I'm sending my THING out tomorrow. But having seen Norks' efforts, I'm feeling gqite ashamed that I didn't make them! blush

RumpledTitSkin Sat 08-Sep-12 20:22:47

Oh no. The other things are lovely. I am not crafty at all. Yours is on it's way Tidybaby, please don't expect much!

Nobody said the THING has to be crafty!!!!
I just happen to do this for a living, that's all!
PLEASE send non-made THINGS, chosen with love, they are still BRILLIANT THINGS because they ARRIVE in the post

I really didn't mean to make people really is just what I do

IsSamNormansDad Sat 08-Sep-12 20:49:41

thank you so much Norks - I love the keyring grin
Tis very luffly & has pride of place on my keys!
My things will be posted on Monday, sadly not homemade, but chosen with care.

Hooray issam!
so glad you like it

Nagoo Sat 08-Sep-12 20:56:39

Please don't think that this is about skill! It's about sending a little treat smile

IsSamNormansDad Sat 08-Sep-12 21:13:25

Nagoo - I think my recipients will laugh! But thats my intention. Love Love Love this smile

UnChartered Mon 10-Sep-12 12:13:47

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU NAGOOOOOOOOOOO It is going up in the studio to remind me of the kindness of strangers grin


I might even hang it on the wall vertically, instead of horizontally blush

I got my lovely thing today from Hesterton via PomPost complete with picture of a pombear! Can't stop giggling smile

Thank you so much.

chinley Mon 10-Sep-12 16:25:40

I've just posted my THING out, addressed to A. Thing. The woman at the post office laughed at me and said "That's a good name to have isn't it!". blush

I don't trust the postal service so have sent recorded, sorry happy, you'll need to sign for it. smile

Ninjahobbit Mon 10-Sep-12 16:29:50

marking my place for when I get my lufferly thing grin

LOVE the bochox. that's so clever. smile

Sidge Mon 10-Sep-12 17:25:20

Today I received a most fabulous pouting frog from the amazingly creative mosp - thank you so much mosp, I opened the parcel and just laughed and laughed.

My girls have called her Fenella, a.k.a Lady CroakCroak

Sidge Mon 10-Sep-12 17:25:51

Damn forgot the picture - here she is in all her glory!

mosp did you MAKE that frog? It's fantastic! smile

mosp Mon 10-Sep-12 18:06:03

Yay! I'm glad she arrived safely.
I made her from fimo smile

Nagoo Mon 10-Sep-12 19:22:09

This is frickin ace! smilesmilesmilesmilesmilesmilesmilesmilesmile

GroupieGirl Tue 11-Sep-12 09:55:31

My lovely lovely thing from browneyesblue arrived today! It was all wrapped up like a pass the parcel, I'll put pics up when I can get to a real computer.

amieis Tue 11-Sep-12 11:52:36

Yummy chocolate dipped shortbreads arrived for me today!! Will officially thank the mnetter for them when I confirm who sent them!!!

amieis Tue 11-Sep-12 11:58:31

The shortbreads were from EnglishGirlApproximatley!!! sooo yummy grin scarfing them down with my coffee right now!!! Thankyou very much smile

I am sending my things tomorrow.
I did not make them sad because you would not have wanted it trazzle if I did. But my things are sent with love and are vair pretty (and fit in an envelope so you won't have to sign for it or go to the post office to pick it up)
I think of everything, me! <proud>

amies your very welcome smile

amieis Tue 11-Sep-12 12:58:08

dd is also very pleased with the paper they were wrapped in english she is lay on the floor flapping it around and crinkling it, giggling away!! two happy people in the amieis house grin

Trazzletoes Tue 11-Sep-12 13:18:03

Marking place

BoysWillGrow Tue 11-Sep-12 16:29:03

I also didn't make what I sent, :-( I'm not very crafty, most things i make either look very odd. Or tastes a bit weird so I brought from someone whose a lot better at it than me. :-)

HappyJustToBe Tue 11-Sep-12 17:44:58

Ooooh, Chinley, thank you for my lovely things. Such a nice parcel to receive. I'm particularly taken with the owl keyring smile

OOH, I had a THING and it was gorgeous.
The parcel was plump and squishy and the first thing that fell out was delicious
tidybaby knows me well smile


Knowing my affection for POMTOO and all things Pombear, tidy had made me my very own, and definitely NOT edible Pombear

but, just as I was smoothing the envelope out ready for recycling and filling with another THING, there was a further LUMP.
Hooray, another THING. I am very lucky.
This is a thing that has brought MUCH hilarity to NorksTowers.

Is it a weasel? A lemming? A polar bear?

It is clearly a RHINOCEROS, although probably a baby as its horn is quite small smile

We laughed soooooooooooo much. Please don't be offended tidy, it was the laugh of affection and love.
DH has taken possession of tidyrhino and it has pride of place in the office. The rhino made of LURVE


tidy you are a super-duper-ooper-star grin

tidyGOLDbaby Tue 11-Sep-12 19:55:48

grin I'm not very crafty and couldn't get the horn right! I was thinking when it was finished that it looked more like a polar bear lol!
So glad you like your goodies grin

the horn is PERFECT...for a baby tidyrhino that's how they come grin

Nagoo Tue 11-Sep-12 20:24:58

I ha ve got a red card from the postman, but got back from work too late to get it. Anticipation 9/10 the pleasure eh?

My 'thing' arrived today from the lovely MrsDeVere - a brilliant handmade AIBU pink felt heart - I luffs it very much I do!! (pic to follow!)

It has made me chuckle all evening every time I've looked at it - particularly made be grin when DH looked at it and knew exactly what AIBU stood for - obviously I've been reading out too many threads to him!!

chinley Tue 11-Sep-12 21:02:48

You're most welcome happy!! grin

I've got a red slip as well but won't have time to pick it up until Thursday. sad

nagoooooo queen of the MOOGs. I think you will find the red-postie-card-parcel is from me.
I hope you enjoy the final 1/10 of your pleasure smile

Nagoo Wed 12-Sep-12 10:27:10


Norks you are very Clever, it's gorgeous! I shall find it hard to part with my very beautiful THING but I shall manage it, thank you, my friend will LOVE it smile

EnglishGirl* thank you! scrans two more in gob

I shall send some more things out today! smile

I also got a little card from my RL friend, after I told her about my NICE THINGS mission!

smile thanks smile

Hope she likes it and wears it with pride, as the search for her present was the whole inspiration for this lovely thread. Have you told her the whole story?

Nagoo Wed 12-Sep-12 11:13:11

Yes smile It's great this thing, isn't it?

It's eating my life up though, I need to work out how to get it to run itself. I already had the instructions amended once but my brain doesn't seem to work clearly enough to describe what to do!

Marking my place on this thread after finally finding it... Who knew there was a pictures topic?! confused

Nagoo Wed 12-Sep-12 11:37:35

I went all moany on the other thread blush

Nagoo Wed 12-Sep-12 11:38:17

dontpetthesweatythings Thankyou for the tissues and the molton brown goodies. Tenish pounds made me giggle!!

amieis Wed 12-Sep-12 12:33:58

Dear blipbipbeep

Thanks you very much for my luffly chocolate styley roll that came in the post to make me smile today! Although I can't eat it I do actually want a face cloth (seriously I do) and therefore I'm most happy!


UnChartered Wed 12-Sep-12 13:43:05

thanks dontpetthesweatythings

kitkatco Wed 12-Sep-12 13:52:44

UnChartered Wed 12-Sep-12 14:14:19

i can't answer that kit

CoffeeGoneColdAgain Wed 12-Sep-12 14:16:38

Thank you so much to WhispersOfWickedness the necklace is quite simply stunning! What a lovely surprise. Very much appreciated. Thank you smile

Despite chaos not managing to frisk a present out of the postman, however hard she tried hmm she is still LUFFLY and sent me scrumptious nommage.

Thank you chaos for my seriously POSH CHOC. what is clever is that it even has chaos style spelling of EATEN on the front, they seem to have spelled it ETON

And because I am SPOILED, I also had a FANTASTIC present from a MYSTERY GIVER.
Can you believe this gorgeous thing, with RHINOs on it and smelling of lavendar and ginghammy and gorgeous.

PLEASE tell me who you are, mystery giver, because I need to kiss you

ooops, chaos present is upside down.
Perhaps I need to eat it on some asymmetric bars.
or in Australia

BonkeyMollocks Wed 12-Sep-12 14:25:24

Aww, this is lovely.

What lovely people you all are!

<runs for tissues>

kitkatco Wed 12-Sep-12 14:45:21

And from the gorgeous Nork

Nagoo Wed 12-Sep-12 14:54:24

Look at all the THINGS smile

Nagoo Wed 12-Sep-12 14:55:42

kitkat what is the roundy thing? smile

I have a THING from AndWhenYouGetThere grin

I have to do the school run but will try to upload a pic later on. smile

That's a pleasure, coffee, I made it for myself a few years ago and it has been sitting in a drawer unworn so I thought it should come out and make someone else happy smile

NCForNow Wed 12-Sep-12 16:12:27

Norks it was from me! Glad you like it! smile

NCForNow Wed 12-Sep-12 16:13:24

[puckers lips]

Norks you make some beautiful THINGS! I'm mightily jealous because I have no creative talent whatsoever. envy sad

kitkatco Wed 12-Sep-12 20:14:48

Nagoo the roundy thing is a beautiful glass bauble blown by OnlyWantsOne SIL

Lucky me grin

GoldenAutumnDays Wed 12-Sep-12 21:12:24

thanks to amieis.

Needed so much today especially the guardian angel.

amieis Wed 12-Sep-12 21:20:27

my pleasure smile enjoy your brew

mosp Wed 12-Sep-12 22:18:48

Thank you Crikey for my lovely heart. I have it hanging on my bedroom door. I love it. Such a treat it was waiting for me when I got home this afternoon smile

I need to find the lead for my ipod before I can get a picture up.

I am a bit tearful about some of the thoughtful, beautiful, and sometimes BONKERS THINGS that are crisscrossing the country.

I have now opened up a sideline exchanging keyrings for donations to WaterAid. So this thread is even saving lives.



mosp Wed 12-Sep-12 22:49:26

If this MOOG carries on, we'll all have to buy shares in Royal Mail. They're doing well from us grin

Three cheers for nagoo and her friend whose birthday is any day now


Nagoo Wed 12-Sep-12 23:01:24

Aw norks the donation thing is luffly.

It is quite an amazing thing isn't it? smile

mosp Wed 12-Sep-12 23:03:04

And requires a great deal of trust, giving out our address like that...

amieis Wed 12-Sep-12 23:21:16

I'm finding it quite amusing that there are postmen all over the uk delivering to "a thing"

Nagoo Thu 13-Sep-12 01:15:49

A good thing about it is that the person wantin the address doesn't know whose address they are going to get. Even if it makes things really bloody confusing grin

Galena Thu 13-Sep-12 10:58:54

I have 2 things! They arrived together. How exciting! I shall post the photos in the order I opened them...

First package from Back2Two... Posh choc (Yummy! Orange flavour!), Posh soap (Verbena scent) and a bracelet for DD which she hasn't taken off since I opened the parcel. smile

Many thanks!

Galena Thu 13-Sep-12 11:03:38

And then the second parcel from Redgate...

A sachet of latte, a box of teapigs (Liquorice and peppermint - will try one later as they smell gorgeous!), vouchers for 2 for 1 dining and free days out, mini chocolate fingers (which DD and I will do battle over later!) and then stickers, Fifi DVD and bands and clips for DD.

She is as delighted as me with the very generous 'Things' we have received today. Thank you both - and Nagoo for organising!

nickelcognito Thu 13-Sep-12 11:51:08

Thank you very very much redgate for my lovely thing - in fact, three lovely things!
I was just moaning to myself this morning that I didn't have any nice soap for the shower, and my moisturizer ran out about a month ago (i've been using handcream), and there was my nice thing! Body butter (never had that, but it looks creamy!) and conditioning shower cream, and they smell bloody Gawjus!

and on top of that, a flowery hairgrip! I'm wearing it now.

thank you smile

chinley Thu 13-Sep-12 11:59:50

I love this thread. smile

IsSamNormansDad Thu 13-Sep-12 12:05:16

Thank you Chaos for the yummy choc. It's nearly finished blush

IsSamNormansDad Thu 13-Sep-12 12:20:26

And thank you amieis! Looking forward to my 10mins! Earl grey is my favourite smile

nickel shock hand cream as moisturiser!!??

You poor love! I'd have sent you some if you said!

Yay, bitter you have a thing!
There are a lot of luffly THINGS flitting around the country right now - look what you've done, Norks!
And Ms. A. Thing is receiving a LOT of post from bemused postmen nationwide smile !

nickelcognito Thu 13-Sep-12 12:58:42

it's pure laziness that made me do it- we've got loads of hand cream at home (of course, a lot of it smells like old ladies! grin )

redgate Thu 13-Sep-12 13:32:33

smile really glad you like your things x

Kveta Thu 13-Sep-12 13:41:56

I got some lovely thorntons chocs today, and a lolly for DS (he will be THRILLED!) smile thanks to my sender!

No credit to me andwhen
it is nag who is the MOOG-mistress smile

Galena Thu 13-Sep-12 14:20:37

lol - there's something for the CV... 'In 2012 I was the MOOG-mistress for a nest of vipers.'

wow shock
another naice THING has arrived.
silk who is clearly a very organised and frankly impressive person sent me a THING from Amazon. This takes THING sending to a new level

looky...I can now have bee-stung lips that taste deliciously pomegranaty.
I use lip balm ALL the time when I am teaching because I talk so damned much.
Couldn't have been more perfect if you had looked in my Amazon wish list, silk

thank you thanks thank you thanks thank you thanks

nickelcognito Thu 13-Sep-12 16:25:54


i've posted out (DH took it to the PO) my nice thing to PandaNot.
i put her name on it, but forgot to put mine.
i hope you like it Panda, it's a bit silly, really smile

VerityClinch Thu 13-Sep-12 17:04:51

Oh crap, redgate is my thingee. She's been so generous. I've done her parcel but now I need to up my game! blush

Galena Thu 13-Sep-12 17:27:13

Hehe, sorry Verity

Oooo I sent out my two today, I wrote the little card out in the shop by the till signed love from Dreams, the nosy shop man asked if that was my name, he said `wow, your parents gave you such a cool name, I said `yeah I know, they were bonkers` blush grin

Nagoo Thu 13-Sep-12 18:03:46

grin Dreams

<amends CV>

BonkeyMollocks Thu 13-Sep-12 18:32:08

Sending mine off in the morning smile

Ninjahobbit Thu 13-Sep-12 19:49:15

Here are my lovely 'things' I got the first one off IsSamNormansDad and the second off NCForNow. Thank you soo much, it was so nice to get something nice.

Ninjahobbit Thu 13-Sep-12 19:49:48

Here is the second 'thing'

brilliant, funny, creative THINGS!

I have been lucky enough to receive outstanding THINGS from lovely generous Mumsnetters and I feel very warmly connected to you nest of vipers.

<may have to go, there is something in my eye>


BonkeyMollocks Thu 13-Sep-12 20:13:46

Norks this was a fab idea.

3 cheers for norks!!!


idea was not mine, alas, although I was there at its conception <snurk>

the MOOG-goddess is our own lovely nagooooooooo who is a genius artist, list compiler and frazzled thread-maintainer

BonkeyMollocks Thu 13-Sep-12 20:20:13

3 cheers for Nagoo grin

I actually knew that, brain is not engaging! blush

kitkatco Thu 13-Sep-12 20:50:58

Hip-hip hooray

BonkeyMollocks Thu 13-Sep-12 20:54:25

Hip hip hooray....

tidyGOLDbaby Thu 13-Sep-12 21:16:05

envy that's just showing off bonkey (jealous really, on iPad so can't do pictures)

Hip hip hooray for Nagoo grin

Nagoo Thu 13-Sep-12 22:27:14

<admires pom poms>

Here's my luffly AIBU heart from MrsDeVere! (Thanks to DH who had to show me how to resize pictures! [dim] )

try again... it shows on the preview!

oooh, that's GORJOOSE. mrsdv is clever..and funny

Isn't it?! It really made me laugh, and has pride of place in my office now smile My 'things' are also homemade, but neither clever nor funny I'm afraid! (hopefully will still make Farley smile when they arrive though!)

PandaNot Fri 14-Sep-12 11:26:54

nickelcognito Thank you, my lovely thing arrived this morning, it was like Christmas! Can't do clever photos because of the iPad. Such a fabulous idea this nice things thread.

nickelcognito Fri 14-Sep-12 12:00:26

no problem Panda - i like sending things to people smile

kitkatco Fri 14-Sep-12 13:00:37

Here are my beautiful keyrings from lovely, talented Norks in exchange for my WaterAid donation. Norks is one of life's angels. thanks

Galena Fri 14-Sep-12 13:06:05

The cat looks less than impressed.

kitkatco Fri 14-Sep-12 13:08:24

When he saw the crinkly red paper he thought perhaps it was something for him... As you can see from his size, his thoughts are mostly about filling his tummy.

Galena Fri 14-Sep-12 13:10:51

lol Funniest sight has to have been Christmas when we wrapped a 'catnip teabag' in wrapping paper and let the cat loose... I have memories of him with his head inside the partially unwrapped parcel, pushing it across the floor till he headbutted the sofa...

amieis Fri 14-Sep-12 13:24:01

I still have a THING of two to sort out blush, still the waiting game lends an element of surprise eh? grin

A massive thank you to VerityClinch for my luffly things which arrived today - in a package address to Tia Maria Thing, which had Dh very confused! grin

It contained some gorgeous L'Occitane products that smell absolutely divine ~ I'm retiring to the bathroom with them and some wine for a loooong soak this evening ~ and a fab little boden notebook that I just love! A very thoughtful and generous 'thing' and very appreciated thanks

puds11 Fri 21-Sep-12 18:01:00

Im confused when did the sending gifts thing come about?

VerityClinch Fri 21-Sep-12 18:09:46


Nagoo Fri 21-Sep-12 20:28:23

Hi puds

here is the first thread.

We are still going, if you want a lovely thing in the post, put your smiley face enthusiasm on the list and PM the previous poster with your address. Then you send a lovely thing to the next poster.

It's an orgy of giving.

It isn't about spending money, it's just about getting a token thing in the post that will cheer you/ someone up and not be a bill smile

BonkeyMollocks Fri 21-Sep-12 20:30:46

<marking place again coz i lost you and this thread!>

5inthebed Fri 21-Sep-12 20:33:17

I received mine yesterday, couldn't find this thread and it's finally popped up in active. Will do a picture tomorrow as currently n iPad.

So thank you mama1980, was lovely getting something in the post smile

AncientsOfMuMu Fri 21-Sep-12 21:04:42

Nagoo glad you received your Thing - the lady at the post office was slightly bemused by the name it was addressed to grin

BabylonPI I can't post a photo but just wanted everyone to know you sent me a luffly bracelet that I have been wearing, and some sweets that Ds and I polished off on the way home from school. It was all packed like 'pass the parcel' with little messages in between. It really made my day unwrapping it -thank you. smile

issimma Fri 21-Sep-12 21:09:47

Have just refound this thread too! Big thanks to amieis for a lovely package of tea, chocolate, sunflower seeds and friendship bracelet (photo to follow). (I was silk but am back to regular nn). grin

RosemaryHoyt Fri 21-Sep-12 22:48:45

I got my thing! Some wonderful chocs (which I scoffed), a face mask that I am wearing, candles I am sniffing, a lovely lip balm all in a lovely box. I have been very tardy in my thanks as was away for a few days and returned from a trip to my lovely surprise. So thank you, 'newtothisstuff' I was a bit down in the dumps and the things so lifted my spirits!

I took a picture of myself in the facemask, mercifully, I can't seem to upload it!

BabylonPI Fri 21-Sep-12 23:41:59

ancientsofmumu I copied from my thinger with the wrapping!! Glad you liked it grin

TheMonster Sun 23-Sep-12 12:00:19

It was me! I am glad you like it. And thank you for my thing. I have been u sing it to tie my hair back at work and lots of people have said how pretty it is.

TheMonster Sun 23-Sep-12 12:00:43

Oh I'm so glad you like it! The bracelet is a bit big as I've got rediculously small wrists, so its an ankle bracelet on me, which is something I've wanted for ages! grin

Thank you thank you AndiMac. I can't upload a photo, but needless to say I have munched the chocolate already! DD1 has her eye on the sparkly things!

DollyTwat Thu 27-Sep-12 00:01:47

Trazzletoes Thu 04-Oct-12 19:12:14

Please PLEASE can I big up the amazingly luffly Vajazzler whose parcel arrived today. I don't know if she has read my thread or has an uncanny supernatural power, but Maltesers are my very favourite, the Macmillan badge was a beautiful thought and greatly appreciated, and the pen is fab.

She is the MOST amazing Mnetter. If she were near me I would give her a great big un-Mumsnetty hug.
