    Best pressy, a great day with the family. Quarter to five and the TV hasn't been on yet, great.
    Worst, a thin purple sweatshirt from relatives in Spain. Chosen I think for its postage friendly weight.

    What has been the best present you gave this year?

    I had some perfume to replace what vanished when we moved in a couple of years ago and a watch. We had one of our best Christmases to be honest, we bought mainly board games this year and spent all day playing them, even eldest spawn played. Spawn3 did struggle with having to keep giving up her money in a couple of games but even she managed to thoroughly enjoy the day. Hardly any arguments between the kids and apart from a few cooking lunch stresses it was fairly stress free. My best present was watching everyone play nicely together :D

    Well no speed boat, quelle surprise, but two pair of strides, some Thinsulate gloves, table lamp and other bits and bobs. What I was particularly looking forward to was a Blu-ray copy of 2001 A Space Odyssey but it has not been delivered as yet, winging it's way from the US apparently. :D
    All in all a very pleasant Christmas :xmas:
