Some of you get loads of stuff as adults.

I got a nice big ergonomic keyboard, a dining in the dark experience, then a few little things like socks and moisturiser.

I got a pillow for the bath and a 5cl bottle of jack.

But then I'm the father of a 3 year old and I'd rather my money went on her.

It’s not a joke, I literally got nothing but I am sure I will treat myself if I see something I want

We have had a very difficult year so decided to splurge on Christmas this time around. Normally I get far less and I do feel spoiled this year.

I think I've got quite enough Ukiyo-e shirts for the time being, but it did prompt me to buy some button-down shirts and a pair of trousers, so thanks!

I love old books, archaeology and Newcastle so it couldn't have been better really.

I'm 35, Christmas is less about fun and more about stuff I need but can't afford myself.

I got a lot more than I was expecting.
Loads of socks
Loads of chocolate
A mario boo mug that changes colour when you put hot water in it
A few drag race themed items courtesy of my little brother and his missus
2 pairs of slippers
Some new gloves
A new scarf
A new jacket
Some new pajamas

My secret santa stuff was awesome too, I got a beautiful watercolour paint set, a 50p coin holder for my collection and 2 pokemon plushies! I've been spoilt rotten.

I also got christmas day to myself, my partner and ella for the very first time (its normally a big family thing) and I absolutely loved it. I cooked for christmas for the first time and everything went really well!
