Well, I've just finished sending out the emails with the swap matches, so check your inboxes!

If I've missed you, please let me know asap: there are a couple of possibilities;

1)That I don't have your mailing address
2) That I'm a doofus :
3) That there are some people who should never have to give up

Phew! I had to keep stopping partway through because dd wanted to play trains My head was :

Thank you to everyone who's taking part in this!

Don't know if I was forgotten, or if the info. is still in transit somewhere, but I haven't gotten anything yet! I emailed you my address yesterday.

Thanks!

Sorry Tina - must have missed your reply to the thread last week. We organised a second trimester swap; basically, anyone who wanted to signed up, and was then matched with another mama - the idea is to send a low $$ gift to your match, and then you'll recieve one in return from a different mama!

I had to close the swap last Monday, but I'm really hoping that if everything goes well and people want to that we could do another one maybe in September...

Meeee!!!!! I received a lovely package from you. : Thank you so much... I got everything that I wanted! The clothes are so so cute and the lip balm is my very favourite. I know nothing about breast pads and breastfeeding (other than what I have read so far) so the package is a great start!

Thank you, Mihelinka!!!!!
