How goes everyone after their festive season? I have been having a lovely time doing little and enjoying it immensely. I know that there are a few of you out there interested in what Subtle ended up giving me for Christmas. Well, he gave me lots of stuff. Stuff like a DVD I "needed" to watch, and even more Christmas CD's, as well as lollies and chocolate, and then some more sweet stuff. He gave me tickets to see one of the funniest men around - Dylan Moran. And finally, he also gave me the best kick-arse iPod sound dock around (I am iPod addicted) - see below!

But those are the tangibles - and yes - what good tangibles they are. But more than that, he gave me one of the best Christmases I have had in a very long time. I mentioned in my last entry that I often found the magic of Christmas waned by the day itself. The build-up to the day was wonderful, but then left me at a bit of a downer once the presents were opened. Not this year. We opened presents and had a lovely breakfast at home. We went out for lunch - just the two of us - and then visited friends and family for the remainder of the day.

And it was all fantastic.

The day held a little bit of that magic that had been missing for so long. It wasn't just the great presents, but it was the fact that I spent the day not in stressing about food, or relatives behaving, or preparing for disappointments. The day was spent with someone I love very much, and feeling and sharing that love. It was the best Christmas yet - Thank you my darling Subtle.
