I'm in too!
Don't expect musical gifts from me though, because I'm into oldies but goodies and have no musical revelations to share....And besides, I couldn't record a decent compilation to save my life, I'd probably botch it all up!

:smth050  Iam inn, but not sure if posty will make it ontime, even with air-mail.  Otherwise me in.  :smth023

Oh well, nice thought anyway David.   :smth051

Doesn't really matter if the pressies arrive after xmas day...which they probably will, but sometimes it nice to get something afterwards....
I hope it all goes ahead!!

Melly~ Yes iam still inn, if after xmas.

But love the idea of whatever goes= surprise gifts  :D  (music is good also, but i personally find hard
to choose for others.)  So if you want to give music is good, but i think i will choose 'other'  to give, and also dont mind after xmas.

Lovely idea either way.  :smth051   :smth050

but thinking of David and the problems,  I also dont mind if we do it next xmas.  :smth023  In the meantime is the thought that matters,
and being late, people having their own problems,

Next year probably also better for me. (to be honest)   i stay tunned though and see what happens  :smth058

Dear members,

Everyone who wrote to info@curefans.com joining this game must have by now his/her "secret friend" details.

Every person was given a number and then randomly we re-ordered the numbers to form the pairs.

If you have any further question please write to info@curefans.com

Remember to keep as secret who is your "Secret friend". The surprise is the most important thing in this game!

Enjoy :smth023

David.

just as a matter of interest, how many did we end up with?

Got mine early yesterday morning, and seeing as though we had to go out, thought I would go and buy my "secret present" for my secret recipient...got pretty excited about it all, took a while to pick what I wanted to send...OoOo will they like this..or this...Hmmm..maybe that... payed for it and hightailed it to the post office, name and address firmly in hand. Now, I know we live in a country town, and that, apart from the supermarket, everything closes at mid-day on a Saturday  ( lots of sport played you know) I was SO cross that after I cannoned into the post office door (thought it would be open!!) I read in disbelief, on the door, that they close at 11am on a Saturday!!  :smth099  They are new in town, the people running it...I think they have a bit to learn!! Especially at Xmas time!! I was pretty disappointed, you know, all excited and happy to be posting off this pressie... gotta wait until Monday now... Hmmmpphh...  :smth012

hey guys,

We've got this question today

Quote
when i send my secret friend a xmas gift, do I reveal who I am ( my real name and address)? Normally I put a return address on mail, so I know if it gets lost. I have no problem with revealing who I am, but what are the rules?

And the answer is OF COURSE!...you have to put your name on the envelope you're sending to your secret friend. Otherwhise how she/he will known who's sending the gift? :smth001

For example, I plan to write a small letter to my secret friend and so on. And of course I'll put my name in the envelope, etc.

The only rule would be not to reveal who's your secret friend until he/she say that he/she got your gift. That's all I guess :smth001

Because most of us are at opposite ends of the planet, it will be a miracle in itself if any of the presents arrive before xmas,as we have to post our gifts; I think using a courier service could be a tad expensive!!  :smth001  And because this brilliant idea only came up recently, it's get in the post and hope for the best!! It is nice to receive something after xmas anyway, it's the thought that counts!! ( unless it's a card from someone you forgot..it's like Oh No..too late to send them a Merry Christmas card!!) When I went to post my present off, the lady in the post office weighed it, then told me how much it would cost to send airmail..I explained to her that I didn't wish for it to have an actual seat on the 'plane... :shock:  So, a rethink was called for!! All sorted out now, and I have resumed normal breathing...after that shock!! :smth038

Good news about your boyfriend..(Humpy?? dare I ask??!!)

Mmmmhhhh..Please tell me again that this is all about the Xmas spirit and the joy of sharing and it's the thought that counts... Because I drew a name which leaves me at a total loss! Oh well.

@FarFar: I too, like Melly, would really like to know what a humpy boyfriend is like. Doesn't sound half bad, actually.

I hope iam not too late, forgot about this., Umm so i have sent msg to David,  I thought i was inn, already.  But thats ok= Enjoy everyone.

But wondering, do we register our addresses and send them directly from origin, Or does curefans resend them ? 

thank you, also sent address.  That how it works?   (i wasnt sure it would happen, nice it is, looking forward buying something for a secret person)

Such a nice idea.  :-D
