Stupid Cupid...

Every year at work,we do a Secret Santa, where everyone puts their name on a piece of paper and then we all put them in a box. One week before school breaks up we each take a name out of the box and buy that person a nice (and appropriate) present, so we have to do a bit of a background check to find out what that person likes.

Every day last week we had Secret Cupid Week. Same principle, we filled in a quick questionnaire about our likes etc, what would you take with you on a deserted island, what's your fave colour, chocolate, music, perfume etc and then put them in a box. We each then picked one and had to leave little treats for our Secret Cupid in their pigeonholes or on their desks each day.

I got some bubble bath from the Sanctuary, some red carnations, chocolates, a bar of fruit and nut, the Footprints poem, a picture of Captain Jack Sparrow and some cherry flavoured lip gloss. It was lovely going in to work everyday with something sweet in my pigeonhole. It was a great success in terms of morale boosting too so I think they may well do it regularly.

What a great idea....everyone needs something to look forward to each day, no matter how big or small, as long as it makes you smile!!

I hope it is something that happens regularly because even the people that hadn't taken part this time round said that they wish they had as everyone involved was smiley and in good spirits. Certainly made me feel good thinking about someone else everyday despite the fact that the person I picked was an Aston Villa fan!!!
