Me, Andrea, Terri, Anna, Jill, Karen, Jules, Jackie & Nat ..

Just to remind you that we can send out our Secret Autumn/Hallowe’en presents over the next few days. Could everyone please wrap your present up, sign it from ‘Your Friend at the Dis’ or a ? and send it out by first class recorded delivery

Now as we know there are postal strikes around, here are some details of planned strikes that are happening shortly. So this will probably mean that our gifts are going to take a few days to get to us

Please reply to this thread when you have sent/received your pressie and please let us know what you have received (and take a piccie if you can)

I hope you have enjoyed taking part, and I can't wait to hear about all your pressies

p.s. The Christmas Decoration Exchange will be starting on 20th October (join until 3rd Nov, and send out 17th Nov). Then Secret Santa sign up will be starting on 5th Nov (join until 26th Nov, and send out 8th Dec)

:woohoo: :woohoo: so excited, my neighbour just delivered my parcel, all beautifully wrapped, I have had wonderful pressies and will post a picture soon, I got a gift packed set of three Disney Halloween China Candle Holders, they all have Mickey ears, a pumpkin, a ghost and a spooky black one, they all have Mickey faces carved into them, so they glow when they have candles in, also a box of 12 Yankee Candle Cider Web Halloween t-lights. I love Mickey, love candle holders and love Yankee Candles, so I couldn't have picked anything nicer.

Thank You Thank You to my secret sender, you are an absolute star xxxx

hi
Just letting u all know, that my present finally arrived yesterday, was here when i got back, postie had put it in milkminder for me

Shame it wasnt in time for Halloween, but then thats Royail mail for you, its seemed to take ages to catch up round here after the strikes, i dont think it helped that were london/ kent borders and seemed to catch strikes for both areas.

At least it wasnt lost
