Secret Santa - what a fab job Sandy has done

I'd just like to say a massive thank you to Sandy (and to everyone behind the scenes at MNHQ) for what's been organised this year. Not only the whole palaver of matching nominees with donors, but also the 'infrastructure' of reminders/receipts and prompts to make sure everyone does everything that they should and when they should.

It's a massive job, and it makes everything so much easier for everyone.

It must have taken an age.

Thank you.

I was thinking this today - that is one seamless Christmas machine they have going there. It's the sort of organisational efficiency that makes your eyes water in admiration.

BIWI, that's very lovely of you to say so.<blush> fgrin flowers
A big THANK YOU to everyone from all the
TechMumsnet dudes, SantaSandyMumsnet and
DeckTheHallswithAliceMumsnet - the Secret Santa Team.

I totally agree with you, BIWI. This year's SS is incredibly sophisticated (tech-wise), so a huge thanks to Sandy, the techs and everyone else who have made this work so brilliantly.

You are all absolute stars flowers wine [gin!]

Oh no! Don't give them gin! They haven't finished yet! wink

FruVikingessOla Sat 06-Dec-14 17:23:06

Awww ... but it is Saturday evening. Surely, at least, they deserve a couple of G&Ts tonight? grin

... and can I say what a genius idea those little reminders were too?

LyingWitchInTheWardrobe Wed 10-Dec-14 18:11:38

Yes indeed, SantaSandy has done a fabulous job. fgrin

LyingWitchInTheWardrobe Wed 10-Dec-14 18:16:45

I sent this to SantaSandyMumsnet, so impressed was I with the Christmas wizardry here this year... winefgrin

An Ode to MNHQ’s Christmas Appeal…
[to the tune of ‘Away In A Manger']

Away in a kitchen, somewhere in the UK,
Someone’s working with spreadsheets 25hrs a day,

This elf is so tireless, she won’t rest till it’s done,
Donors matched to their Giftees and then she’ll feel she’s won,

Bless all at MNHQ, special thanks go to Sandy…
When she’s mainlined her Gin then she can start on the Brandy.

<wipes a tear away> Lying that was beautiful! And eerily accurate.

Want to know something amazing? In real life SandyMumsnet is even lovelier than she appear to be on the boards. I know it sounds impossible, but it's true.

BIWI Thu 11-Dec-14 13:45:02

Now now Kate. You know that's the gin talking ...

Love Lying's song! fgrin

... and sending a gift to the lovely Pippa and her husband, who rescued a stray parcel is just fantastic, and really sums up the spirit of the whole Secret Santa idea.

Well done one and all!
