{give} a parcel received

England-Scotland-Parcel-001

Last week we received our parcel from Katie for the Rugby World Cup Swap that Megan organised.  (I blogged about the parcel we sent here).

The girls were so excited to get some mail… and not just any mail – a parcel!  We were so lucky to have Katie as a partner – she really outdid herself with the lovely goodies we received!  Katie and her family now live in New Zealand, but they are originally from England and Scotland, and so we received a parcel full of British treats…

The goodies included… Scottish stickers, Union Jack cupcake flags, English & Scottish pencils, British mini bunting, English and Scottish wing mirror covers,Union Jack tissues, Tunnock’s Tea Cakes (which are kind of like Mallowpuffs, but the marshmallow is cloudier) …

But I think our favourite things were the two items that Katie made herself:

These very cool handmade stamps of the English and Scottish flags… AND

… our very own memory game complete with iconic English and Scottish images!

Thanks so much Katie for your amazing parcel, and also to Megan for organising the swap!  I have to say I am a little addicted to the whole ‘swap’ concept, and will be keeping my eye out for more to join in the near future.

    What a great idea a swap is?! I’ve not heard of this but would definitely love to be a part of one. I’ll be keeping an eye out too and let you know if I come across any opportunities! I am a complete Anglophile so I adore all the goodies in this pack – what fun!!!

      I completely agree Victoria! And the memory game is fab – nice to feel like we’re playing a game and learning something about another culture at the same time!
