As you may have spotted last month, I decided to sign up for Bex and Hanna's second Ninja Book Swap. This time there were TWO options - a Trick or Treat option, and a normal one. Being a Virgin Ninja Book Swapper (NO GIGGLING AT THE BACK) I opted for the normal... er, option. *congratulates self on excellent command of the English language*
I posted my parcel off last week - I won't say who it was for or what was in it, because as far as I've seen it hasn't arrived yet! - and today I got MY Ninja gift in the post, wheeee! This was what tumbled out of the jiffy bag - all beautifully wrapped and beribboned, and completely confirming my suspicion that Bex was my Ninja Fairy Godmother. You know a 'blog friend' has really become an 'all-round real life friend' when you recognise their handwriting on the envelope. :)
LET THE UNWRAPPING BEGIN! Here's what was inside, all unwrapped but still draped with ribbon (because it's pretty and I think the cats will love chasing it!):
I can't even remember what I'd listed as my likes and dislikes (except that chocolate was definitely on there) but since we're friends anyway it didn't really matter in the end! She'd bought me a copy of Geek Girl by Holly Smale from my wishlist (because HELLO, geekery rules all things), a pretty box of vanilla chai tea (which she'd previously sent me in a cheer-up-Ellie care package and I'd absolutely loved), a bar of ChokaBlok Rocky Road of Love chocolate with marshmallows on it (which *cough* will handily replace the ChokaBlok Very Berry Eton Mess bar I've nearly finished, hehe) and a lovely jazzy card (just in case I hadn't already twigged who the parcel was from!).
Thank you Bex - you know me so well! A proper thank you will be on its way very soon... I'm looking forward SO MUCH to finally meeting you next month and being able to put a face to the blog at last! :)
Thanks to Hanna and Bex for enabling us all to share bookish goodness with each other in such a fun way, and Happy Trick or Treat Ninja Book Swapping to everyone else who's taken part this time around!
