Happy Christmas

So... gifts have been opened, too much food has been eaten and rubbish TV has been watched. Now it is time to hit the sales, see friends and family... and not go to work until the New Year.

This is one of the coolest (and cutest) things I got for Christmas. Rich knows how much I miss our friendly garden toads when they hibernate for winter... so he got me a substitute to keep me company until Spring.

Despite the fact that our rubber duck collection in the bathroom has now reached saturation it doesn't stop the collection from growing. Meet Love Duck and Ducks Fizz.
My nearly-mother-in-law got me this trio. The two smaller ones are actually for salt and pepper... but I don't think that they will be used for such as they are far too cute.

Meanwhile our nativity scene-cum-advent calendar is finally complete. I bought this from the Lakeland catalogue last year... for half price. The problem was the reason it was half price was that it didn't arrive until nearly January, so this is the first year I've had a chance to use it.

This gorgeous little fellow came from the Cancer Research shop... despite the fact I had no idea where to put him I really couldn't resist.

I hope everyone had a truly lovely Christmas - Rich and I certainly did.
