Super Single Mum's Blog

Life and all the shananigins!

My First Secret Post Club!

Last month I watched the Blog Posts roll out about Secret Post Club. Set up and organised by the fantastic Heather at Notes From Lapland , Secret Post Club is exactly what it says on the tin. Loads of us like minded Mummy Bloggers send gifts to each other every month, the key being that you don’t know who will be sending you a gift.

I received my email on April 1st with the details of my recipient and I was so excited. It’s true that as you get older you do get just as much pleasure form giving a gift as you do receiving one. I bought my pressie, and made a piece for it too and off it went in the post on Friday morning. Now all that was left to do was wait for my parcel to arrive!

Today I got home from work and there was no mail, at all, no bills, no nothing. It was while I was putting on the washing and doing the boring jobs that have to be done that there was a knock on the door. Today the postman was very late, it was 4pm! But I am glad because he was bringing my Secret Post Club parcel!!!

My sender this month was the wonderful Carol at New Mummy. We have been friends on Twitter for a little while and I always enjoy reading her blog and through Secret Post Club I have also discovered she lives only half an hour away from me!!! I have to admit I had been a little apprehensive about what I would be sent. I mean how much can someone know about you in a very short time. Even those who discovered my Blog when I 1st started have only had 2 months to learn about who I am. Well, I needn’t have been worried, just look what I got:


A beautiful purple scarf, I love the colour and I am a scarf person! Two True Blood books, I hadn’t realised I had given too much away about my Vampire obsession! And a book about being a working mum, which considering I have just started week 4 of back to work after a 2 year break, I am sure I will get a lot from it!!

So massive thanks to Carol and I hope everyone else enjoyed their gifts. Oh and if your not part of it then sign up. It’s a great feel good thing to get involved in and will also introduce you to new bloggers!!
