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?
Just relaxing now after the washing up.
My worst pressie was some "my little pony" socks......I'm in my mid 50's lol..
Lots and lots of smellies and choccies from son and hubby. Christmas only involves us 3 these days , but we have been exchanging a small gift with some elderly neighbours the last couple of years...... they gave us some Baileys liquers this year.....nice one!
I got rather drunk!
Did get a book on curing meats that looks very interesting though, shall be trying some of that.
Inspiration to give to Future Hope
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

We had a hamper of wine, pates and chocolates from the two dogs up the road!
Which was nice.
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.
All in all a very pleasant Christmas
A kit to build a Radio 4 long wave receiver!
