    Your best xmas present?

    What was your most awesome Christmas present this year?

    Mine was rather special, and means more to me than the giver can appreciate..............after 6 months of me, my missus and our 1 and a half year old son living at my parents house due to us getting into debt AND my parents both being made redundant at the same time we've found ourselves a new home that we'll be moving in to in about 3 months time. All thanks to my missus dad who is moving into another house with his partner and has decided to let out his 4 bedroom detached house out to us for FAR FAR less than it is worth! I can't wait. A cracking Christmas gift if i do say so myself.

    Well I must say that my best xmas present is that I've been shortlisted for a job at my LEA and my chance to get back into the educational IT routes. So I'm rather chuffed about that!

    I got a Pac Man thermal print mug, a refective/day-glo backpack cover for when I'm cycling into work, and best of all, some decent sports headphones for my iPod when cycling.
    And a whole raft of decent booze

    Congrats to bodminman and HTCIT
    My best present was a teamaker for the bedroom. I am sick to death of ALWAYS being the first up at weekends and so having to get up and go downstairs to make a cup of tea. Now I can have one in bed!!!
