My secret swap revealed!


It was with great excitement that I opened my Secret Swap package kindly sent to me from Julie at Abbily Ever After. She sent my favourite peppermint patties just for me and yes I had to eat one before I got the camera out to take the photograph! Also enclosed was a jigsaw puzzle that certainly has us puzzled! We can get eight squares to match but just can't get the nine to match up. Ahhhh, I spent way too much time trying to succeed! Even the card Julie sent me was homemade, now I wonder which talented blogger made that? Thanks Julie for sending me a nice package.

spare time or is deadly at Scrabble.
(Wait till you see the last one)!

The Mother-in-Law one went out under the assumed it was name of Noel Coward just a little few years ago!!! Love

fatman said...

It's not quite the same but on predictive text on mobile phone sms 'daughter' is also 'fatigues' or 'fatiguer'.

Now I'm not saying that means anything but...

DAMN those colours made my eyes spin round!!

Julie said...

I'm so glad it arrived - that was super fast - just mailed on Friday! Glad you enjoyed the patties - save them for yourself! : ) And yes, I couldn't not include a special card from the wonderful Emma. Those puzzles drive me a bit batty too - I have to have my husband help me.

Catwoman said...

What a fantastic package!

And that anagram thing is almost creepy!

Rachel said...

That puzzle does look hard! I love jigsaw puzzles!

my4kids said...

Beckie said...

The gift exchange looks fun! There seems to be a peppermint patty theme the last couple of days on the internet.

Witty Wednesday made me laugh - very clever.

Karmyn R said...

Those are crazy! I think that can be done with your name too - and its suppose to be something prophetic.

I can't wait to get my secret package. Peppermint Patties -YUM!!!!!! When do we get to see who you sent yours to?

Stephanie said...

Yum!! Peppermint!

Those anagrams kinda scare me. So DaVinci code!

CPA Mom said...

And the MIL one - so true. Woman Hitler is what I have for a MIL (monster in law)

That Chick Over There said...

Emma in Canada said...

I don't know if it was the puzzle or the colours in witty wednesday that made my eyes go all wonky. And i had a laugh at the card- too funny!

la bellina mammina said...

Pamela said...

eewwww... that mother-in-law rearrangement gives me the willies.
I don't mind being a grandma, but I hate that mother-in-law title. Makes me feel like a schmuck.

Sally Lomax said...

These peppermint patties are fascinating.. are they a bit like Bendicks, or are they more like Fry's?

PortraitofPeter said...

Your witty Wednesday - caught me though!! Still in need of more caffeine me thinks!!

Carla said...
