Secret nr.1 - This gift was given me from a "secret friend". I have no idea who it is who sent it to me, a Hobby forum arranges gift swaps, and this is the first time I participate. I managed to wait until Christmas eve to open it, and what a surprise!
This is all the wonderful things I found inside: I really cool nisse (gnome), Two skeins of Sock yarn designed by Kaffe Fasett, which I have been looking for for a long time - and also the exact right colour, Bamboo needles in one of the few sizes I still don't have but really need, my favorite marzipan (my sons favorite too, so i guess i have to share), lots of tea (i am addicted to tea, and my secret friend might know i regularly travel to Japan because i got a lot of green tea too). But what might touched me most was the hand made bracelet. My secret friend used some of the hectic time before christmas to sit down and make a beautiful gift to me, who she doesn't even know. That makes her a special person.
Here is an update on secret nr.2: The seeds my son gave me for my "green january" are growing like i water them with steroids. I have no idea what it is, but due to the speed they grow, i tend to believe they are eating humans for breakfast and decided to treat them with caution. This picture is taken four days after it was one cm long! And I can see more of the scary things growing too.
Contest: The first to guess the right kind of plant will receive a gift.
