    What my missus did not get – a sweater from gudrungudrun.com – the Sarah Lund jumper people. I ordered it on 12 December. No reply. I mailed them on 19 December and asked if I would have it by Xmas. On 21 Dec they mailed me and said the sweater is no longer available and my order is cancelled. Just that. Happy Christmas.

    Got a great Canterbury jumper from the wife and some good t’s. Also got a copy of Jesus Hates Zombies (comic) and a rather nice Olive oil and balsamic combined container and some Alessi espresso spoons.

    All in all given that I have bought myself a Suunto Core, iPad, couple of pairs of Howies jeans, Skiing clothing, new Lumix TZ30 plus a bunch of other stuff this year I really didn’t need or want for much!

    Apart from this ….

    docstar – those Lansky knife sharpeners are really fantastic. I have one. If you get the super fine white colored stone (feels like ceramic) you can get knives sharp enough to shave the hair off of your arm! 😯

    I got my £10 gerber that sharp, using a cheap worn grey stone. Using the Ray Mears technique.

    That sounds really filthy… The Ray Mears Technique, involves sheep poo and willow bark….

    Got an awesome Berghaus fleece thing and a Petzl Myo RXP amongst other stuff. So much better when you make your Wiggle/Amazon/etc wishlists public…

    I am now like a kid in a sweet shop waiting to try out the new head torch and fleece when I walk the dogs tonight. The only thing better than that was thinking up an awesome pressie for my mum’s birthday in Feb and seeing my wife’s smile when she opened her present.

    The watch came first 🙂
    Plus it helps me tell the time when I’m not near those electric things ie all the time when I’m outside at work.

    That LEGO is awesome. 100% of want. And the Axe. I was very happy with my presents until I saw those. Still tomorrow I get the best present of all, riding in Wales all day away from the joy thieves that are the in-laws 😉

    What is it with all these people who don’t wear watches? It’s just like there, on your wrist…….. Why wouldn’t you?

    Because I’m not allowed to wear one at work, so have got out of the habit?

    ahhh, the capitalist shackle.. binding us to the working day set out by our overseers, tempting us to believe that we are in control of our own destiny..

    the very symbol that proves beyond a hope that we have lost any shred of dignity

    the very symbol that proves beyond a hope that we have lost any shred of dignity

    Oh dear Lord above…..

    And the worst thing? I suspect that’s not entirely just a stupid troll comment, but possibly a real belief.

    Ask any watch wearer what the time is, just after they have just looked at their watch, guarantee they will look at their watch again.

    Does your wife know that you feel this way about her? My guess is that you’re too scared to tell her and that you say “yes, dear” a lot. 😆

    I got the Lego Sopwith Camel from OH, its awesome, took me 4 hours yesterday afternoon.
    Unfortunately it means that I have now been looking at other sets on ebay. Massively expensive.

    I’m not sure on that one to be honest. Having seen it in a lego shop it looks massive.
    I want to get the steam train that was around a year or so ago.
    The space shuttle looks cool too

    A local cheese hamper and other exotic local foodstuffs from The Wife.

    A sausage hamper from the Bro & Sis in Laws.

    Cake hamper from the Mo in Law.

    Sweet FA from my parents. I have tried phoning and skyping them for 3 days. No answer. Even though I know they are in. Can’t exactly pop round. They live in Bulgaria. Not worried about me, more for my 2 boys who never get to see them or get presents anywhere near the time they’re supposed to.

    Got me a galaxy 10.1 tab and the top of the range nespresso , machine.
    Awesome. And the kids got Xbox Kinect which is a million times better Thames the s3

    Now that makes sense! Adults getting children’s toys to play with at Christmas. *shakes head*
