I got:
Socks (Yay.)
Pocket watch (Wanted one for ages)
3 Xbox Games (Quantum of Solace, Forza, Table Tennis)

Table tennis bat/raquet (Attempt at trying to get me to do sport)

Chocolate (Why I don't do sport)


Probably good I didn't get any PC components, they would get it wrong anyway "Can I have 8GB Corsair Vengance" "What's that, a processor?"


...okay, I lied. A teeny bit. I bought myself a Christmas present of 8GB Corsair Vengance. But that's all. Oh and a Wireless PCI adapter...

Last weekend I received a pretty little Henry 22 Magnum pump rifle. From my father-in-law.
