I shall receive with open mouth. Bear in mind, Royal Mail is incredibly slow right now (usual 1 day delivery is now predicted at a week) so it may be a while getting to me.

Parcel received, looted, slightly tidied with zip-lock bags (I have issues), added to and shipped on. I will say that everyone seems to be doing the same as me - adding more than they take - so the box is bulging and has tipped over the 2kg limit. There wasn't much in there I wanted, so at the risk of being a hypocrite I think it would be great if people started to take more to get the weight down.

Onwards and upwards.

I can do what I have done in previous rounds and lighten it when it gets back to me, by placing some things in a spare box to form a back-up/emergency box.  :)

Received a couple of days ago, apologies for late notification but work has been a bit busy.

Right, so, should we leave it a couple of weeks before going again? Might be a bit rapid otherwise. Give people a chance to collect more unwanted bits etc.

I believe I'm next to receive, and I'm happy with whatever. Have a Table Top sale coming up at Firestorm on 26th (plug), but doubt that would affect what gets added.

Yeah I mean, in these grim times I'm just happy to get something fun in the mail, and feel like I'm part of some sort of social activity.

Are we planning on restarting the cycle/round again ?

Just wondering as it's been around 3-4 weeks since it arrived back with mcfonz, and i know the idea was to give it a short break (due to the speed it went round last time).

-- and i don't think you need a heavy box, mcfonz, reasonable amount of stuff saved up for the box.  ;D ;)

Will add you both tomorrow and start getting the box ready again. A couple of bits have been round a few times and not getting any bites so will switch them out for something else.  :)
