Santa, I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to post. Life keeps thwarting my best intentions.

Anyway, my lovely santa

sent me a beautiful package all the way from Denmark.



Unfortunately I lost the photo of the boxes nicely wrapped. Inside was a game I've been quite intrigued by, Valley of the Kings, and an expansion for one of my favorite games, Castles of Burgundy. And then chocolate! I'm eager to try it, I just have to wait until my son isn't looking ninja

And a beautiful postcard that makes me want to travel to Denmark!

Thanks so much Santa!

So I went to my local store to pick up my gift. And I swear I skipped, hopped and danced all the way home! Even though I held the box under one arm, and a full shopping bag in the other. I also smiled a little seeing who sent it.

I have been her Secret Santa at an earlier opportunity, that she did well in pointing out in her lovely letter!! You hit spot on!!

I also laughed a bit opening the box and finding the first gift I could pick up. But first, some photos:



The box, placed on my sofa



A letter on top of it all



The contents on display!!

The box contained:
1 Timeline: Inventions.
And I can tell you, it is fun and interesting. I have played it before. You get a bit tricked sometimes, thinking old inventions are new and the other way around. Big fun!
2 Haruka Nanase key chain.
And that got me laughing, because he is my favourite character in Free: Iwatobi swim club anime.Also, note that he is my avatar for the moment...
3 Three Fullmetal Alchemist pins.
I will find a place for them, I promise. They are so cool!
4 Fridge magnet with a Chili recipe.
I can`t wait to try it out. Sounds yummy!!
5 A box of energy bars.
Since I am a swimmer, and need some quick feeds between practice and dinner/supper, or swimming sessions. Just my kind, too, with berries and nuts!
6 Anime she backed on KS, Mai Mai Miracle
Blue-ray and DVD special edition box. I haven`t tested it out yet, Caysi, but I will keep you posted. If anything the DVD will probably work on my computer if it is Region 1, as it is set for that. If so, I can pay it forward and give the other disc up for adoption at a later moment!

You did really well, Caysi, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Don`t give up on FMA Brotherhood. It has some of the same storyline as the FMA, but some more depth to the story, and we watch Edward grow, not just physically, but also as a person, in a more clear way. Character developement is much stronger I feel. I still sit through the whole series and discover new aspects with it. Take it in small portions!! kiss

My gift actually arrived a few days ago. But due to my situation, i've had it sent to my brother's house for safe keeping until i was able to pick it up. Yesterday when i stopped by to check on his cats (i'm currently cat sitting) i found my box in his living room. I was having a rough day yesterday. Nothing bad happened, just a bunch of tiny insignificant things one after the other resulted in me not in a good mood. Anyway, seeing the box made me smile!

My box is from

She put together a box full of awesomeness!



I just realized this is hard to see (took it on my way to work). But you can see that my cat Aiden has claimed the beautiful post card she sent me. After this pic i was able to steal it back so i can keep it nice! She sent me the game Ghost Stories: White Moon, a notebook with meeples on the cover, two of my favorite tea blends from David's Tea; Buddha's Blend and silk dragon jasmine, a tote bag with an amazing fantasy scene, and pictures of flowers that i believe she took!

I love all of it! I plan on displaying your flower pictures somewhere because i love them so much! I also managed to get the boyfriend excited to learn Ghost Stories, so the new expansion should be played in the very near future! I also am very excited about my tea, fall is just around the corner so i will need some tea to have at work to keep me warm.

Thank you so much.
