Did you really ENJOY getting all those cutesy little gifts for Christmas from every person in your address book? You know the ones ~~

Smellies, of the candle or cosmetic variety that immediately turn your stomach or give you a rash.

Chocolates you are not supposed to eat or have nuts in to break your teeth or catch under your dentures.

A tasteless little ornament, to clutter a shelf and give you stress every time you see it.

Travel slippers three sizes to small

So here’s what I got:


I bet that he probably made you smile.

When you’re finished trying to see up his loincloth, (and you just looked again, didn’t you??) now put him back and remember I got him first!

Thank you Santa!

    I have always envied Superman his ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound or travel faster than a speeding bullet or make people guess whether he is a bird or a plane, but he can have all that stuff. Superman, give me your X RAY VISION. I only need it for a few minutes then I’ll be satisfied!!!!!!!

    Of course you’ll share him when you’ve finished with him? Remember your friends now! Actually, I did very well this Christmas with thoughtful and useful gifts. Hope yours was good.

    Now Girls! Stand well bach, no rushing, you know I share everything.

    Christmas was great even if we celebrated two days early. It was lovely having Elly & George here for the weekend.

    The suprising winner of the foodie fare this year were char-grilled pepper biscuits with Venison Pate. Very morish! So much so that they departed on Monday morning with a couple of batches still warm from the oven!

    Crystal you will have to join the queue.

    When New year comes I hope to be surrounded by feathers – My duvet and pillows.

    That way I am sure to be cosy, warm and trouble free!

    Looking at you present I can only think of two things?

    1) How much bother did you have getting pine needles out of him and
    2) Have you unwrapped him yet?

    Hi Will, I hope Santa brought the gifts you wanted. Now to answer your questions.

    1) There were not enough needles to make Pine Needle Tea!

    2) Unwrapping is best done slowly!
