From my parents I received these three Patricia Cornwell books and some money. I already have some of the Kay Scarpetta series, but I am missing a few and these were on my C'mas list. I'll have to start reading them again but that's not a hardship...after Harry Potter is finished that is.
And from my sis Kathy, I received this gorgeous chart, also from my wish list. Kathy included a couple of treasures, some beads and threads too but they're behind the chart in the bag so you can't see them. They're great, thanks Kathy.
Once I was showered and dressed I tootled off to the Metro Centre to have a wander round the shops for an hour or so. Then I picked XDH Mick up and he took me for my lunch in the pub. He gave me a card and pressie (Jackie CD) and when I came home I took the poster out of the CD case and hung it on the sitting room door. It has Donny Osmond on one side and David Cassidy on the other. Donny is currently smiling at me, and I've told the kids that there will be severe consequences if there is ANY poster defacement. PMSL. Dene and Ian don't even know who these two guys are, but Dene wants to get a pen and black Donny's teeth, or give him some spectacles, a couple of scars, bolts in his neck, swastikas on his shirt collar, black fingernails...you know, the sort of stuff we did when we were younger to posters/pictures in magazines. I've told Dene he'll be evicted if he so much as goes within 5 feet of the poster with a pen.
Last night, Craig brought me home a lovely bouquet of flowers, and once I'd put them into a couple of vases, Craig took me out to TGI Fridays over by the Metro Centre. The food was nice but it wasn't very hot. We were home by 8.30pm, with a vodka and coke, my stitching and skating on the telly. All in all a great day.
