Just before Christmas my daughter Sarah was desperately searching shops for a gingerbread house. She couldn't find one anywhere and had pretty well given up. I happened to be email-chatting to Marit Meredith, who publishes the PaperseZine (literary and arts on-line review) and mentioned the lack of gingerbread houses and the next norning in the post a parcel arrived containing the most magnificent self-assembly house you could imagine. My daughter was stunned and we're all waiting to New Year when she's going to allow us to very slowly nibble bits.
Thanks to the Santa Lady (Marit actually comes from Norway) I have a very happy Sarah!
