Gift certificates, clothes, money.

I bought my cats a new cat tree and loads of toys (spoilt )
But that's kind of for myself because its highly entertaining to watch them

I got really spoilt this year and I had jsut asked for money

I got the money and way too much more.

My parents bought me a silver charm bracelet. I only have another piece of nice jewellery and my parents got me it when I was 13. It's a gold bracelet. I hate wearing it out incase I lose it. I'm also funny about wearing this out but my Mum said there is no point in leaving it in the box and I can ask for charms on it for my 20th birthday. She said she would get me one before I go away in the summer too. At the minute it has no charms because she said she spent the money on a bracelt rather than charms. It's very pretty plain though and has a little t-bone type clasp with a heart with little diamonds in it. (I can't explain things well)

They also got me

-perfume (Amore Amore)
- make-up - special hypoallergenic foundation and blusher and make up brushes and make-up bag. I really needed it. I was sick for a while and have just got better but my (already sensitive) skin suffered and it looked like it had been burnt and now it's more sensitive than ever and my other make up was making my skin peel.
- DVD's - Love Actually & Stuck on You
- Cd's - Scissor Sisters & Embrace
- Book - Adrian Mole by Sue Townsend

My sister got me some pretty things like a charm bracelet (she said it's more 'bling' and I can wear it out without being afraid to lose it, she knows me very well ), underwear, lottery scratchcards, and a little travel journel. It's really cute. I pointed it out in a shop months and months ago. It has a little compass on it too. She said she wants me to fill it on my year away and give it to her to read when I get back.

My uncle & his girlfriend got me gift vouchers for cd's/ books/ dvd's

My brother got me a book called The hypochondriacs handbooks, he said this book was written for me. I have a habit of worrying too much sometimes.

I told my friends to donate money to diabetesuk if they were going to get me anything but one friend got me a fcuk bath set with lots of lovely smelly things, and a new purse because my last one got stolen and I believe it's bad luck to buy your own purse (the only two I ever bought were both stolen a week after I got them ) and she also got me a little teddybear and box of chocolates.

I feel really really spoiled.

I am seriously spoiled

Merry Christmas, everyone!

I hope everyone had a great one, and got everything on their list.

My loot this year:

From work (various co-workers, friends, and boss):

- John Lennon Accoustic CD
- Borders Gift Card
- Gift certificate to the mall
- Bath set
- Glass vase

From Dad:

- $50 Borders card
- $50 Pier 1 card
- Apple Blossom candle

From Mom:

- Credit card debt paid off
- clothes, socks, jammies
- crock pot
- blender
- 2 sets of glassware
- various other neccesities for the apartment (little odds and ends)
- Rolling Stones Rock And Roll Circus and THE WHITE STRIPES Under Blackpool Lights DVDs (Keef and Jack, I think I just )
- U2 Show book
- $50 Sephora gift card
- $50 grocery store card
- snowmen flannel sheets
- a pretty white scarf
- cat cookie jar

From Mom's boyfriend:

- Target gift card, and this:

It's a CD/DVD case, and he MADE it himself. They told me to close my eyes and when they brought this out, I almost started to cry. It's so nice, the picture really doesn't do it justice, and it's going to look perfect in my apartment.

I still have the family thing tomorrow and some get togethers with friends, but yeah, I pretty made out like a bandit this year.

My brother got me a circular saw with a laser alignment system and step by step home improvement book. (he likes tools) OK so it's not what I would have asked for, but I did inherit the house (from my mom) and it could use a few things, so it's actually better than what I would have asked for anyway.

My sister's going the cash route -- always welcome!

And I bought a few new toys for the cats (always tricky, cause the dog likes to eat them -- the toys, not the cats), and a new combo rope/plush squeaky toy for Zeke (the dog). He's so happy with it! He's rolling around the floor with it...hasn't found the squeaker yet -- oh! he just found it now! He's making it squeak like crazy. And I bought him lots of doggie snacky treats (he's a dog gourmand ).

my dad AND my aunt both got me copies of "U2 Show", even though i didn't ask for it! so now i have 2 copies. don't get me wrong, i'm NOT complaining (great book- very pretty photos), but i think this means that my family *officially* knows i'm a U2 nut.

other things i got:
Sex & City Seasons 5 and 6 on DVD
Bridget Jones Diary on DVD
Itunes gift certificates
hat & scarf set
parka w/ fur trim

plus, leaving for india in just under 48 hours... i am very lucky, indeed. *grateful*

heehee! no buying necessary- if it were up to me, i'd give it to ya for free!

my dad is returning the copy he got for me, and is going to pick out something else instead. hopefully, he'll get Jon Stewart's 'America'- however, my dad is a republican and die-hard W fan, so he might not want to spend his money on 'liberal propaganda'...
