"My curiosity box arrived on Christmas eve and could not have come at a better time ... I was just home from an exhausting trip round the shops for last-minute gifts and food, was heartily sick of Christmas before it had begun and was longing for a bit of a treat. Lo, no sooner had I taken my coat off than the postman buzzed and my box was delivered. Yay! Of course, had I had more will power I would have saved it to be opened on Christmas Day but naturally that was never going to happen ...
In the box was a lovely card and various beautifully wrapped gifts. Fending off the kitten, who was just as curious as I was to see what was inside, I poured a glass of wine and began to unwrap all my lovely treats, which could not have been more thoughtfully chosen or guaranteed to delight me.
In the box I found:
A mini Christmas tree - so welcome, especially as this was the first year we had decided not to have a real Christmas tree (new kitten + Christmas tree = disaster).
A lovely tree decoration, which is hanging in my office now and will remain there all year.
A selection of chocolates and candy canes (alas, all eaten by now but very much appreciated).
A tea light & little container (also in my office, as I like to light candles when I'm hunched over my computer all day)
A book, which I can't wait to start. I am passionate about reading and hadn't heard of this book at all, but my sender assures me it's a favourite of hers and I'm sure I will love it. Happy new year to you all!
All in all, a great selection of treats. This was my first curiosity project and it certainly won't be my last. Thank you, sender, you made me very very happy!"
