We got our very first tree!
It's a mere 1 and a half feet tall, and decorated by me!
Here is a shitty photo!
Mama (Paternal Grandmother) Spoiled us as usual for presents; all the others under the little tree are from her, the others are stockings and extras we bought each other, so this is the loads we had to open on Christmas morn...
And here is all our collective loot! Mik did fantastically for me. Unfortunately due to my inability to go out alone, most of my stuff for Mik was from a cut-price supermarket (Mum accompanied me) but most was from Mum to us
The day itself was chilled. Dinner? Lush. Joyous.
We did OK for others' considering I'm still compiling your lots' gifts too, and both our birthdays, my papa's birthday and Mum's birthday all fall within 3 months! Momma was pleased, my sisters seemed pleased, the rest got little or nothing. Birthday
Today is my birthday. I started as hospital for stupid surgery consultation. Panics and stuff but rest of day GOOD.
ANYWAY, Mik got me a few things early. This I chose for weirdity and Kitty!!!!!
