Congratulations, Trish! Image Image

No, we do not talk about Alaska, now that Sarah P has written a book. Most of us are actually waiting for her to read one.

I'm chuffed to little pink mint balls about my present today. My daughter decided that her 60-year-old mum needed a Walkman to help her through the daily grind, bought the neatest little gadget, pre-loaded it with all my favourite albums and gave it to me for Christmas announcing 'It's on shuffle' 'Whattle?' 'Shuffle!'. Spent all morning happily peeling and chopping vegetables listening to all the bands and artists I've seen this year and a few others too. What a GREAT present!

Congrats Trish :D

I had one of my best presents today, I managed to make two trips downstairs :D First was for Christmas dinner as usual, but I also spent a couple of hours downstairs this evening! I haven't spent that much time downstairs and with more than one person for a few years, so it was pretty darn amazing :D

hehe, thank you Morty :D Everyone is asleep now, so I'm all on my lonesome again, but I'm hoping for an earlyish night since I was up early and pretty active :) Hope you had a good evening too and get some sleep as well :)

Congrats, Trish.
Glad to knwo you and phoenix had a good xmas.

I spent my xmas with my family in a friends house. I got a guitar(yippee!!) and a 'lot' of sweets that will last me till xmas. That was a bad joke. I also got the last two books for both my artemis fowl collection and inheritance series, and "Equal Rites".
The guitar was actually the only present from my parents that i didnt know about, which was nice. My mum says i'm too old too be able to hide pressies from cos otherwise they'll not know wat to get me.
Smilies are friends, not food. Image
