Happy Boxing Day, and Thanks for My Mystery Gift

Woo to the Hoo!  We had a lovely Christmas, in spite of all early indications that made us think it wasn't going to be like that.  We had to work at it a bit, but it was fun, thanks to friends and family!

There is this one thing,'s about the Marmite.

I opened the front door on Valentine's Day, and there was a little bag containing a jar of Marmite.

Everyone who reads here, and a lot of my local friends know I LOVE Marmite.  It is my number one all time favourite comfort food.  It reminds me of childhood, of England, and of Mom.  Not only that, but it is an extremely healthy food.  I can't help the fact that it is fermented yeast extract...I just eat it up, yum.

I still haven't figured out who left the Valentine.  Not only that, but I opened an anonymous package this Christmas, and discovered that it contained not one, but two jars of my ambrosia!  The Houston postmark traces back to a spice distributor.

I still have no clue about who might have sent it.  Please, whoever you are, let me know so I can thank you!
