Default What did you get from Santa?

I got a new watch, various bits of jewellery, some clothes, a pink ice cube tray in the shape of a fairy castle (very happy with this) and a framed photograph of Meow's cat (I wanted one).

What did everyone else get ?

Best present were the happy, cheerful people at dinner. Other than that, some jewelry, sunglasses, perfume new mobile and a box of belgian truffles.

Default Re: What did you get from Santa?

Some nice bits and pieces, a bracelet, earrings that Mr Meow had made to order, my favourite perfume, fighting cats (not much fun), a calendar featuring my lovely niece and half my body weight in chocolate.

Not excessive (apart from all that chocolate!) and all the better for it.

On the whole we all did well I would have an ipad mini as well if Sharaf had let us redeem air miles for it.
