I've received a present! How do I thank the donor? And the nominee? Thank you, thanks . 'Twas a crap year, but still not sure I deserved it.

yeah, quite possibly. although, I do have a very attractive cervix. or so I was told by the nurse who did my last smear.

and the one who inserted my coil.

SlightlySuperiorPeasant Thu 29-Nov-12 17:38:07

My nominee is on here... and no, I'm not telling who you are or why I nominated you grin but you do deserve it and I'm feeling all twinkly to know that you're pleased.

Jacksmania Thu 29-Nov-12 17:13:03

Shit!!!!! That was not supposed to be on this thread.
Sorry blush

However I also don't want to dream about anal anything!!! grin

I had a really creepy dream about my ribs popping out through my chest last night shock. In my dream I thought "shit, better go to the hospital" but then detoured to shower and do my hair hmmWTF in this disgusting bathroom where the windows were crawling with bugs.

BlameItOnTheCuervo Thu 29-Nov-12 17:06:41

me too Jacks.

Jacksmania Thu 29-Nov-12 17:04:43

Sandy, so many of us were utterly surprised and delighted and shocked to be nominated... I would really love to know why someone nominated me.

BartimaeusNeedsMoreSleep Thu 29-Nov-12 16:58:05

Thats a point - does the nominee receive the reason?
Cos I'm not sure mine was worded very well... blush

Still, never mind, have ordered the presents for my receiver and it should be there in a few days <rubs hands>

Right, late to the party (as usual) and have been directed to this thread from the uncharitable one in AIBU. Anyway, can I still nominate someone or is it too late? Also, will the poster whom I intend to nominate find out who I am? I wouldn't want them to but would like them to know the reason. Thanks.

Hi GrannyRat,

The matches for this year have all been done and sent out <the elves are still recovering from the party>
You are warmly welcome to look out for the MN Christmas Appeal next year, pop it in your diary now for November, and you could be the first to nominate!

And no, no one need ever know it was you........

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 29-Nov-12 16:45:51


Are you deleting the right thread, Helen?

Darn. I knew someone would notice. blush

Doigts de saucisses, as they'd say on Mamanset...

BlameItOnTheCuervo Thu 29-Nov-12 16:41:56

oh god, I've just read the reasons again and one of my reasons is up there! Thats made me so happy.

SandyMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 29-Nov-12 16:33:07


Reading those nominationcomments made we wonder if it might be possible to see the nomination of the person we're sending gifts to. If I've got the person who never buys anything for herself I want to buy for her not her children, iyswim.

Hi Soloman,
That's lovely idea, might hinder the anonymity of the MNer, but one to think about for next year...
Not logistically doable for this year though IYKWIM. <gulp>

Does everyone who gets nominated get a pressie. I just want to know if the flipping lovely person I nominated will definitely get something.

Hi MrsTerry,
Absolutely most definitely.

MaryAnnSingleton Thu 29-Nov-12 16:25:42

I have been nominated and am truly touched

PeppermintPasty Thu 29-Nov-12 16:20:40

Have I missed the boat? How do you nominate?

TheLightPassenger Thu 29-Nov-12 16:12:58

has anyone got a link to last years' nominatory comments, it would be nice to read that as well.
