christmas presents...

I was a good girl this year and Santa was very kind :o)

Top of my presents was a Pink 4gb Ipod Nano.

I also got the usual girlie things such as my Clinique makeup, pyjamas, underwear, 1 million Disney DVD's (OK - 6 to be exact plus one more that Dan got), alcohol, jewellry, Cars PS2 game and also some cookbooks, a food processor, a dinner set and a Gucci handbag!

christmas holidays...

Our Christmas relative visiting is now over for another year.

We got back today feeling very tired having spent a week travelling from Reading to Newcastle to Nottingham and back to Reading with a visit to Derbyshire in-between!

The driving was very good this year in our lovely new car - Marvin. He even had plenty of room in his boot for all the presents.

Although, we are still tempted by a foreign holiday one Christmas and next year could be it. But do we spend it on the beach doing Christmas in a completely different way, or head somewhere where the weather is still cold and Christmas is still quite traditional.

Who knows!

chips away...

We got Chips Away to come and fix Marvin's vandal scratch and my little bumper chip yesterday and what a mighty fine job they did!

Originally, I'd had a quote from Reading for the front scratch at around £170 + VAT but once i'd had my little accident we decided to try the North East branch to see if they were cheaper - and they were! £100 + VAT for both front and back.

So, they came to collect the car at 9.30am and it was returned back to the house by 12.30pm looking as good as new.

We'd defintely use them again!
