Secret Santa 2019 Sign Up Time!!

Postby Diamond Dog » 26 Oct 2019, 20:15

It's the time of year* for you to sign up to the long running BCB tradition of exchanging presents secretly, across the globe, for the merriment of all participants.

I will need your name and full postal address (by pm) before Sunday 18th November...that then gives us five weeks to get the prezzies sent, to arrive by Xmas Eve (please!). And, yes, that means across the world for some so take last posting dates into account etc etc......

Any questions - post on here or by pm.

I think we had 14 participants last year - it would be nice if we could have more this time around.

*It is, in fact, about three weeks later than normal so GET YOUR FUCKING SKATES ON.

Jimbo

This year, however, I'm going to ask my recipient his or her T-shirt size in advance because they have some nice ones here and the shirt would be nicer if it fit. So there.

Oh, I'm an L size.

Whoever gets you as their SS will be a lucky recipient, you have really spoilt all of the family over Christmas for a couple of years with everything you’ve sent....including the CD :twisted:

All recipients have been sent out - sadly I'm still awaiting details of some and I'm now away until next weekend so the actual addresses will have to wait until then.

PLEASE get that to me ready for then - and, yes, I'm in deepest Cornwall so no wifi or internet!

Hugs & Kisses.

Incredibly - I am still waiting for THREE people to send me their details.

To be honest, this will be the last time I do this. There seems to be little/ever dwindling interest and - whatsmore- the hassle of getting the most rudimentary information from people has really sapped my enjoyment to the point of no return.

Until I get the info, I can't send ANY of the other info out.

Details of your recipient have been sent by pm to you all.

Sorry for being a bit of a miserable bugger last time but.... this is an incredibly busy time of the year for me... hence my wish to get this done last weekend.

However - let's get those prezzies sent ASAP please.
