Our first order of business today is to announce the winner of last week’s Target gift card giveaway.

The winner had to be Harriet who confessed her worst gift-giving moment:

One year my uncle asked for fertiliser (he was getting into gardening). So, I bought it and I thought I wrapped it up quite beautifully. When we arrived at the family christmas party, his flight was delayed and he was extremely late. Everybody was asking what the horrible smell was in the big package in the corner! In hindsight.. Who really wants a bag of poo for christmas? Wish I thought of that at the time!

Oh dear! I’ll contact you with details on your prize, which you could use to make up to your uncle with a less smelly gift this year!
