Woohoo !! The Summer is Here !! http://bestsmileys.com/sun/2.gif

Wow, what a wonderful weekend it has been, and it has made me think about my Summer holidays ... and our Secret Summer Exchange !!!

For those of you that haven't taken part in our UK Community exchanges before, you need to send me a PM with your name, address and a few ideas of what you like/dislike/collect etc. or maybe you would like something to take on your holiday, like a book. Then on 13th June I will send you the details of someone else who is taking part, and we will send our presents out around 27th June. You will find the rules at the bottom of this thread

http://bestsmileys.com/sun/5.gif

So if you want to receive a nice pressie or just want another excuse to go shopping ~ come and join in !!!

Have fun

Mandy :)

The rules are :-

1. To buy a present to the value of 10.00 (before postage)
2. To wrap and send the present out by Saturday 27th June
3. To send the present by 1st class recorded delivery (as parcels have gone missing in the past and you are then able to chase it up with the Post Office), if you don't choose this method and the present goes missing, then you must send out another present
4. You can join the Secret Exchange until 13th June, when your recipient's details will be sent out to you (though the earlier you join, the earlier I will send out these details)
