I got a very nice cheque from my brother (who has been taking the path of least resistance for years), the complete Downton Abbey collection to the end of series 4 (used but in perfect condition), a Simonetti Discworld calendar :D , bottle of Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey :drool:

I mostly got money instead of the rake of vouchers I normally get. I guess the most crass thing I got was a DKNY purse from my sister because, and I quote 'seeing you using one that cost 3 euros is just painful'.

I've purchased the boxset of Doctor Who series 7. And the discs are fine. Pity I couldn't get the limited edition, but c'est la vie. After the saga trying to fish out the discs of The Hobbit, I'm glad.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

I got some groovy things, books & such. The best thing was spending the day with family.

Not technically a gift, but I got Left 4 Dead 2 for PC. I already got it for xbox, but A) it was free, and 2) since it's made by the same company I can feegle stuff from it (models and such) to use in source filmmaker videos. :D

I got a lot of nice things.....A signed, dedicated Ltd edition of Alice on Mars by Robert Rankin, a Wintersmith/Steeleye Span CD, a Red Dwarf DVD boxset and some other choccie bits etc from Karen and the kids. I got a tablet from my Mum & Dad!Just got to work out how to use it now! Some lovely fretwork metal candle/tealight shades from my sister that cast beautiful patterns when the candle is lit. So all in all a very good Yule.

You need to get series 10 as well but skip 9 they very obviously had no money to make it and it shows :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Well, it's better than Back to Earth, at least, and the last episode is excellent...
