Whichever of you did it you are legends

So two little stories number one Christmas is crappy in my house for reasons I won't go in to. I was watching Fred Claus earlier and was bawling by the end of it.
Number two story. I'm slow. I opened the card when I got the package and was like oooh because there was a picture of my Nicky Byrne from Westlife and that was as much notice as I paid that.

I opened the presents once it passed midnight and it's taken my three goes to get a proper picture because I kept forgetting things, first I forgot the card, then the candy canes because I'd put them on my little pink tree. Eventually got the pic:

I love my gifts thank you.
I got a fairy Minnie Mouse, Selection box, candy canes, Minnie Mouse magic face-cloth, Park 3 Vinylmation: I got one of the country bears and then the card and picture of Nicky.
So as I took the third picture I noticed in the second picture of Nicky the card like I was holding was in the picture and he was signing something and yup yup on the back NICKY BYRNE'S AUTOGRAPH addressed to me

I now have the biggest smile on my face!
Thank you Secret Sender you are a legend

Thank you Mandy as well for organising another great gift exchange, when's the next one?

I got a his and hers Mickey and Minnie calendar, a Yankee Candle Christmas Rose Sampler (which smells delicious), a Lush Secret Santa gift with Honey I Washed The Kids Soap and Cinders Ballistic, a wine glass and a gorgeous pair of Shamballa earrings. Thank you very much Secret Santa.
