    Got a great present from my boss: a sort of calendar featuring a weird website for every day of the year.
    I'm glad its a good one as it is still the ONLY present I have got. *sigh*

    I've had a few cards from kids this year and even one from an ex-pupil. One card from a TA but we have a charity board thing that you can use instead of giving out cards.

    And a bottle of wine from one of the teachers.

    So far i've got 9 cards, 3 bottles of larger - 500ml, 4 bottles of larger - 330ml, bottle of wine, bottle of christmas ale with a pint glass and a small christmas tree.

    Reason behind the christmas tree was the ex split up with me, so i didn't feel like getting a tree this year, but one of our admin girls bought one and gave it to me, it's about the size of a terrastation, maybe a bit bigger, and it's real so i can plant it after christmas.

    Crikey i'm sad, measuring things compared to a terrastation.....

    Cards x 9
    Wine x 1
    Chocs x 3
    Bonus from staff fund x 1
    Unknown gift x 2

    That is all just personal gifts / cards to me - there is a few more presents bought for the whole department, like chocs + biscuits etc.

    1 card nothing else. (and that was from our cleaner)

    3 people have tried to give me bottles of stuff (wine etc...) you'd thin they'd know me well enough after 3 years to realise I don't drink!

    What is the fascination in giving people booze??? Laziness, can't be bothered to think of anything original?????

    I've received absolutely nothing! Had a card in my pigeon hole earlier and got all excited only to notice it wasn't for me - Bah!!

    We are exchanging Secret Santa gifts during break time though, so here's hoping for something good. Although, i'm more likely to get a Mug with a supposedly funny slogan on it..
