Who wants to play pass the parcel?
« on: July 25, 2017, 11:37:23 AM »
Is anyone up for a mystery parcel?  I figure that we can get a box and put some goodies in it, and send it to the next person on the list.  The recipient then takes out what they like, puts in some stuff of equal or greater value and sends it to the next person on the list.  If you want to participate, paste the whole list into a new post and add your name to the bottom. Then PM your address to the person above your name.   Not sure it's so great for people in America since postage is pretty expensive.

Who's game?  I'll start

I knew all these months of saving bubble wrap from Amazon orders would pay off!

There's no rush, because I have to wait to receive the parcel, but I'll be needing your address.  ;)

No pressure... I have to think of what I'm going to be putting in it, and once you send the parcel, the ball's in my court!

Should we promote this thread in another place?  It's possible people ignore this subforum because nothing ever happens down here.

Why don't we see if it actually works!   Sometimes it can be hard work to actually get that package to the post office (@phatbeetle - waiting for that package is very thirsty work)

Hah!  That's actually my biggest concern with my participation.  I am going to be very good this time, but I have a history of not getting things posted in a timely manner.  I won't do that this time, though!  I promise!

I'll play, but could I suggest that we try to put things in the parcel that are local to where we live? I'd love to see what is produced in other parts of the UK.

BTW, I don't know if any of you remember / were here at the time, but we used to do UKY Secret Santa. If that could work, I'm sure this can too!
