Default Christmas Presents - what did you get?

You posted previously about what you wanted, but what did Father Christmas actually bring you?

Those are some heels!

I received a new handbag (Coach, orange leather - for those who like details), an Ottolenghi cookbook, loads of chocolate (so much for my plan to lose a bit of weight), two pictures and other bits and pieces. I didn't want much and Mr Meow has gained many brownie points by surprising me with a bag that is just to my taste.

I got some new lights for the patrol. Complete surprise to me which was amazing considering I had to go to the garage, select them, order them and pay & collect them on Christmas Eve.

They are being fitted right now
