Ok here's the sign-up thread

here's guidelines for this swap:

1. To be included email your details (including your mumsnet name, postal address, and how you want your parcel addressed - Some people don't want to reveal their real name to us, others don't want to reveal their Mumsnet name to their family. If in doubt, just put "the mumsnetter" ) to mnswaps at yahoo dot co dot uk -- replace at with @ and dot with .
No need to resend if I have your details already, unless you have moved/changed details.
2. If you have any dislikes/allergies etc, please let me know. I'll include it with your details so your swaper can avoid getting you something you can't use or will hate.
3. You must be signed up by Friday 6th November. I will send you your swapee details on Sunday 8th November.
Please note...The person you are sending to is NOT the person who is sending to you. Its all muddled up.
4. You must post your gift out so that it will get to your swapee by Monday 23rd November.

5. You must send by at least Second class Recorded delivery, Sorry if this seems drastic but we've had a fair few no shows so this way everyone can be reassured that packages can be tracked if lost.

6. If you are unable to get your gift out but have signed up please let me know or you may be excluded from further swaps!!!
7. Please do not put your name on your gift, you can put a return address if you want, but the guessing won't be much fun if you put your name. You can leave a clue though as that adds to the fun
8. The theme for this month's swap is Pre-Christmas.
9. The budget for gifts this month is from £5 - £10. You are welcome to go over the budget, but please do not expect anyone else to!

Because we seem to have more fun guessing when our gifts arrive, you can start guessing as soon as you get them. Swappers may then disclose their identities if they so wish!!

This swap is for new and unused items please keep tags attached to the gifts, prices can be removed.

If you have any probs whatsoever please do email me as most things can be sorted out quickly and amicably before they flare up

A BIG thanks to all of you who keep swaps fun xxx

psychomum5 Tue 22-Dec-09 12:09:07

ps, the reason I failed to come back earlier, have had no internet, plus DS2 been in hospital for an op that all went a tad wrong and he got a very bad infection.

flame did do another thread somewhere for me asking if it was anyone here, but not on this thread as I forgot all about it at that pointblush

just popping in to say I am very truly sorry, my swap only got sent out last friday, I hope it has arrived. explaination inside parcel.

also, I got a lovely gift from lush, no name with it, and my name was spelt wrong on the address label (was sent to mrs (my proper name) turner, which threw me a tad, so I am unsure if it came thru the MN swap, or some other mystery package???

if it was from someone here, thankyou thankyou thankyou, I was thrilled with it, and it is still sat pretty in my bathroom making it smell divine

BexieID Sun 20-Dec-09 19:21:56

Glad you got it ok Freya and really sorry it took ages. Was the book I was waiting for. No bookshops round here and Asda/Morrisons were useless!

Tortoise Sun 29-Nov-09 08:38:43

smile Glad parcel arrived. Hope the choc is nice and the smellies are the right ones. Enjoy. (Was a very handy box from my swap lol)

BexieID Sat 28-Nov-09 19:40:09

Hehe, got mine today! Boots sanctuary smellies and Lindt coffee choc (which I didn't know they did!). Thank-you Tortoise. I did guess from the clue, but ripped off the address label to take to PIL to burn, and saw it addressed to you, hehehe.

I'm going to have to order part of the gift i'm getting my person. I won't say what as might give it away, hehe. I haven't forgotten, just where I live is crapola for buying certain things.

CaptainDippy Sat 28-Nov-09 09:46:16
