If anyone has any questions on there mission please feel free to ask.

 

I wish everyone so much fun!!!!!

This sounds like so much fun. I love Advent calendars and use them every Christmas. Although I didn't have time this year to participate in this mission, I certainly hope you (or someone else) will do this again next Christmas so I (and many others) will have the opportunity to take part in this. I will look forward to seeing the comments and pictures posted for this mission.

Received my mission name. Will do some shopping this afternoon.

In the Netherlands ii is a little bit early for xmas things becuase we first have Sinterklaas. But a chocolate Sinterklaas or a chocolate santa does not make much difference I hope.

25 presents wrapped.

Should have used less paper because now the total weight is over 2 kilo.

Will check the exact weight tomorrow in the post office and then decide what i've to skip.

Maybe do not add 6 boxes with "hagelslag" :rolleyes:

As this is about exchanging cultural and customs, then I think it is wonderful that you will share Sinterklass!

 

Here the shops have Christmas decorations up - amazing how many decorate with evergreen and imitation snow in the height of summer here!

Last day of shopping for me today - I have had SO much fun thinking what my recipient would like.

 

I can't wait to lay everything out and decide what is going to be opened on what day

 

Rivercacher - just one question - nobody has listed who they are buying for and I am dying to know who is sending to me! is it ok for us all to state who we are buying for?

 

Have fun everyone

Xxx

Usually that is revealed when the recipient posts that they have received their mission. Until then, it remains a mystery........

Ah, the suspense...... but all will be revealed.

Got everything out today, sorry it was a little late, but I am sure it will arrive in plenty of time...I just hate how crazy life can get some times :anibad: . I sure hope he likes it as it was a little hard to find info on my person. Thanks for putting this great mission together :laughing:

Okay, fun news and not so fun... '

 

Fun is that I really like the idea of exchanging packages and this afternoon I brought in a package from Pingos who I sent my advent mission to. Cool !!

 

Not so fun.... the box is marked fragile and has been beat up by the post office. I don't really want to open in and be tempted by the presents inside but I worry about the condition.

Very pretty all lined up there --- tempting every day to look and shake and then get to open one.

Excitement here - a package address to Butterfly arrived...... so many packages inside, and no peeking allowed.

 

Oh, and lots and lots of stick on foamies, which I know my 3 year old grandson will want...

 

Thanks CarinRcc - you made my day.

Annoyed yesterday / today as someone didn't check their mirrors and backed right into the side of my wee red RX8 - so spent today working on insurance claims...

Perfect day for a mission to arrive

I hear ya...our recipient has not posted that is was received (maybe they were away for the holiday??) and we have not yet received anything (today's mail just arrived and no package). I hope it arrives soon...otherwise it kind-of defeats the purpose of the advent theme :cool:
