How Does a 'Love Bomb' Work?I am still trying to work out how the love bomb works - I understand the concept and love that I was the recipient of one, but am stuck for what happens next. I feel a bit like the picture shown here - Indiana Jones and an avalanche of presents.
What's the protocol?
How does one respond?
Indeed, how does one thank people properly when contact details are so scant? If anyone can clear up this little problem for me, I would be very grateful. Perhaps you could all send me your addresses via the contact page on this blog and allow me to send each of you a frugal, micro McGonk. Yes, that's a good idea... please will the following people send me their return addresses so Clan McGonk can begin infiltrating many more frugal homes! :)

Look what the postman just brought into Thrift Cottage! An awesome collection of wools, the likes of which I have never seen before, from an anonymous frugaler. Wow! Can you tell this knitting game is new to me? Last time I knitted (prior to the wrist warmers) was when I was pregnant; the result of that period of my life is my 25-year-old daughter who now has two daughters of her own!
Ooh, what fun I am going to have with all these fabulous yarns! I can't even think about where to begin...
My sincerest gratitude goes out to all of you and I hope there is some small way in which I can show my appreciation.
I'd also like to include this:
It's a photo of a few of the little McGonks I have been making from all the lovely Secret Santa and love bomb bits and pieces I've received. (The speckly fabric is from the offcut I bought via eBid.), It's the start of my frugal micro-business project, all helped along by some wonderful, kind-hearted frugal bloggers.
The grey McGonk at the front is one I made last night. This is being donated to the local children's storyteller and will, hopefully, help introduce the pre-school children who attend her story-telling sessions in the library to the joys of frugaling and recycling during her 'Frugal February'. :)
Froogs, I have been tracking your Secret Santa parcel and it seems to be doing some amount of travelling between depots, I really hope it reaches you soon. Current update states it's at depot (it doesn't say which one) and arrived there at 3am this morning. Maybe that means it has gone out for delivery today or has even reached you by now, after leaving here on Friday. Fingers crossed!
