Just got a Amazon package back which was stolen by a 'neighbour'. Only after being threatened with calling the police (had photographic evidence and signature provided by courier company) did she reluctantly return it.

She had opened the outer box AND broke the seal on the inner box even though it had a pic on it of what was inside. Plus it stinks of pot!

Oh and she had had it since the 6th December!

BIT*H

But... It's Christmas and I have my family around me so I refuse to let the cow put me in a bad mood.

:thumbsup: HAPPY CHRISTMAS ALL!!! :thumbsup:

We don’t open our presents until after Christmas Dinner. :(
The kids have opened their stockings though and started off by building a cardboard rocket and castle in the hallway.

However, since they opened Laser Ops Pro I’ve not seen them. Just heard lots of screaming and flashes of blue and red lights darting around the house. :laugh:

Apparently the rocket and castle are now bases..!

I love it
Saw in shop window months back when with mum and just commented on it
Used to get a shirt or jumper every year but last decade or so my designed tastes have wained (guessing its the mortgage) with maybe just the odd bit of Luke being purchased

This is lovely though and reminds me of the Xmas they got me a dark blue denim Burberry shirt which had the breast pocket and cuffs in classic check. That was a good shirt and led to many a nice night ;)

Did very well this year; Echo Spot (to replace the dot in the bedroom and the prehistoric clock/radio), 3 wifi plugs (total now up to 7!) 2 pairs of jeans, 2 belts, aftershave, pyjamas / lounge wear and a pair of trainer / shoes for bumming around the garden / garage in.

Must have been a good boy!!

Thanks

Andy

Not much I know but in this case it really is the thought that counts. This shortbread, a traditional gift with older people up here in Scotland and was given to me by an 80 year old who I invariably meet when walking my cat Millie and she is out with her dog Hamish.
She is aware that Edie died this year and have no contact with family so this small token is quite touching.
I am hoping that I can eat it but it does need to get very soft when dunked into coffee as I have little ability to swallow solid food.

And my mum got me this top, amongst a few other bits, which I love as JP is still one of my favourite films of all time since I saw it in 93 when I was 11 years old

A asian 'lego' chiron supercar, that apparently takes 27 hours to build with about 3500 parts, my dad was super excited for myself and my brother to get these, it was really rewarding to see his excitement for once

I'm not a typical spoilt kid at all - I've always worked for everything, so this was an absolute shock to me.

I couldn't believe it, and I'm still in shock.
