Matty, your coat is awesome.
I had a lovely holiday.
My work people spoil me. From them I got a travel blanket, a counter-top composter bucket, a couple of work friendly t-shirts, some pretty soaps, a nice blank drawing book and a very soft scarf and gloves. And a check in a card from my male boss because he gifts like a real man
On christmas, my dad, his fiancee, my sister and I made pancakes and potatoes and hot chocolate, and then we stuck the pizzelle iron in the fire and whipped up a makeshift batter (no internet at the farm house means no recipe at hand, haha) and worked to get the perfect pizzelle. We joked about how many Pollocks it takes to make a good pizzelle. Apparently the answer is four. Then we all waltzed with one another. It was a lot of fun.
Later there was the gathering at my aunt's with food and scrabble, and we watched Up.
From other people I got mostly useful things, but also a couple of things I won't use. I do appreciate the love behind the giving of them.
I also got a ring from my son because he thinks I'm pretty
He picked it out himself from the Santa's Workshop at school.
And my sister got me a snuggie. With ironic sentiments.
Happy birthday to all you capricorns! My birthday is this week, too!
