|Presents under the tree - The Beast wasn't one of these although it feels like he is he's such a lovely, old boy.
Now I like to spoil my family and friends but of course I also like to be spoiled, I would much prefer to have 52 presents under the tree than a present for each week of the year. We do go overboard, I start shopping as early as I can looking for bargains, good deals. I spoil my young cousins rotten, not necessarily because I'm spending lots of money but I spend time thinking, searching, planning and shopping. I like to make sure I'm getting everyone what they would love rather than a gift for the sake of it.
The photo above shows what was under the tree, The Beast (pussy cat) gatecrashed the photo, he has a longer story to him which I won't go into now.
|The Beast with one of his presents
James and I have out own tradition, we tend to save presents for when we have a free moment and as we spent Christmas running around we instead left all the other presents until Boxing day.
Now I won't be adding much more text to this post, photos are a much better idea but there are quite a few so seek them after the cut!
I'm very fortunate to have so many wonderful friends and family to spoil me!
|In the New Year I'm hoping I'll be feeling that much better that I can get back to my weight-lifting, pilates, circuit-training, etc. plus something new, see above :)
|My beauty goodies. Top photo shows the box sets - a lovely over-whelming amount! Bottom row shows individual pieces I received and a lovely new glass jar for my cotton wool.
|The Paul & Joe box set contained the adorable blusher stick, I had to take a photo before I start to use it.
|Lovely pieces of jewellery
|I've been desperately meaning to collect theses tea tins for years, James has now started the ball rolling!
|The items that could have easily appeared in either of my younger cousins present pile but were instead in mine!
|Many books and many CDs - I honestly believe at Christmas you should received at least one book, one cd, one dvd and one game! Although I did receive multiple!
