I love love love all the presents I received this Christmas. I feel so privileged to have been given such personal and thoughtful gifts; I really am extremely lucky. Probably one of the most endearing presents I received was the homemade hot chocolate mix which my boyfriend made up for me. If you saw the Jamie Oliver programme over Christmas, THIS is the hot chocolate mix he created, but Rob went one step further and added even more chocolate and hidden spices to the blend to give me a heavenly, heart-warming mug of loveliness!
Also, needless to say that I was more than ecstatic when I was surprised with the Canon EOS 600d, the very baby I have been lusting after for months now. I still haven’t fully mastered how to use it, and have been avidly studying the manual at every opportune moment, but it really is a fantastic camera! I am over the moon.
I hope you all have had gorgeous Christmases and feel rested and ready for 2012! I have been making the most of my last day off work today, as I am back to the grindstone come tomorrow! Pretty sure I won’t get away with an afternoon nap at my desk, or have the time to continuously devour endless supplies of Quality Street and cups of tea! But, like they say, all good things have to come to an end and I had such a wonderful time with family and friends over this festive break. Roll on New Year’s Eve!
