Jean Lol!!!

Susan Wiv, sorry didn't see your reply as I was down south from 23rd and time on the internet was spasmodic.

I do see where you are coming from, and if I think about it maybe the presents I have in the past re-gifted were not suited to me because the giver didn't know me well. I have never re-gifted anything from or to anyone close to me. and, yes I do put a lot of thought into presents myself so I understand your thoughts on that. There was a piece in the paper that started me off on this and the percentage of people who said that they re-gifted and/or wouldn't mind people re-gifting their presents was very high. So I am sure if you give to people you know well and, as you say, put a lot of thought into it then your presents will be opened with anticipation and never re-gifted.

Oh yes *crosses fingers and shuts eyes* a ((((hug)))) from me. <3
