A freakin banjo. The fact I knew it was coming is neither here nor there; it's awesome. I've never owned a musical instrument before and I love it. If your idea of Christmas bliss is to hear some ham fisted goon stumbling through 'Oh My Darling Clementine' 437 times then you should have been at Beers.

Aside from the banjo related sweetness I was given a 2003 Chateau Suduiraut (Sauternes) which we cracked open last night with a slab of roquefort while watching The Bishop's Wife. Truly sublime. Not only one of the best dessert wines I've ever had but just one of the best wines I've ever had. It was perfectly balanced with none of the cloying sweetness you sometimes get and a perfect level of acidity to clean it all up. A beautiful wine.

I got a great cook book on salads called.....Salades by Damien Pignolet. It focuses on salad as the main meal as opposed to an accompaniment and has some incredible ideas in it. Random example - Green and butter been salad with smoked ham and wholegrain mustard dressing. Going to be a lot of fun.

I also got a big box with three different marmalades (brandy, blood orange and ginger) a bunch of Moroccan spices, including a tub of some seriously firey Harissa, a bottle of hot sauce for ribs (Bone Sucking Sauce) and a selection of great dark chocolate - cardamon and cinnamon, pink peppercorn, nutmeg and rose with blackpepper and sea salt.

Finishing off the kitchen element of Christmas I got a new potato ricer and a new stove top coffee pot, both sorely needed.

Throw in a handful of books and a couple of shirts from Thomas Pink and it was a great day. My mother in law sent me a pair of Cary Grant cuff links. Is it even possible to fail when wearing Cary Grant cuff links?

We spent most of our money on the kids this year, but I did get a nice pair of gloves, a black polo neck for all my 'environmental radicalism' activities, a dig for victory mug, a kaleidoscope, Le Fanu's Uncle Silas and my husband gave me the horn. Actually this horn...

think thats it - trouble is I buy everything I want myself!

edit:....and some socks. everyone gets socks

pretty much the same again this year. except I got some boxers instead of socks - and I didn't get a ticket to anything

some bench smellies
lots of beer..........crate of bud, some czech beers and some ales.
cutlery set
set of glasses

the 'haul' seems to get crappier each year! I didn't think it possible. Not that i'm ungrateful mind you, I put an equal amount of effort and coinage into getting other peoples presents.
