What have you got for Christmas this year?

Having desecrated my stocking, I found in it from Father Christmas (really me)

Two tangerines
£6:30p (about $12:60c in US terms)
A paddleball bat and ball
A mini chess set
A mouth organ
Some fake penalty tickets to put on random cars at stupid'o'clock in the morning when noone is awake to see me do it
A laser pen
A bookmark
A "T" seal and sealing wax
Two packs of Vienesse truffles
Three packs of chocolate coins
A compass
Three mini chocolate logs with marzipan robins
Three chocolate puddings
A small slab of chocolate.

The chocolate will come in handy for raising my engergy levels after a bad sleep.

I'll tell you what I got under the tree when I've opened my under the tree gifts later on.

Most of my Christmas haul for this year just came through.


I got...


A red gala silk shirt that makes me look like Father Christmas.

Big black boots that also look like Father Christmas's.

A big back Father Christmas like belt embossed with red stars.

A dark blue denim shirt.

A map where you hang it on the wall and scrape off a gold foil covering of the countries that you have been to.

A regifted book to write in.

A 2012 diary.

A 2012 Taylor Swift calendar (not as good as the 2011 one but it has some good pics of her.)
A book called "Buried Alive" about the history of live burial.

A book called "Many Skies" about how things would be with different star systems.

A book called "Christmas-a candid history" about Christmas traditions

And my father asked me and my two brothers to shut their eyes. They did and I pulled my Father Christmas hat over my eyes to serve as a blindfold. When we could open our eyes and I could pull up my hat, we were each holding-a brand new blue plastic sledge. So if it snows in 2013 that will come in very handy.


There are two more presents coming up when my uncles and aunts get here that will give me a total legit reason to bump up my thread one last time.

I love the gifts that I have got.

I got a new engine and factory seats for the Camaro my brother and I are restoring!



Ok, it's not exactly an authentic restoration. *grin* My brother is obsessed with building fast engines. We're expecting 400hp!

Quite a few nice things ...

A few off the top of my head -

Firepit for the back yard.
Leather coat from the wife.
It's a Wonderful life display to hang on the wall.

Quite a few nice shirts (needed some new shirts!)



The joy of watching my family opening their gifts!

I hope everyone had a special christmas this year!
