    What did I get? A hefty dent in my bank balance.

    Materrial things? Exactly what I wanted, and asked for. Nothing.

    Non-material? Some quality family time, including with some elderly and not well members, for who we may or may not get another chance. Priceless.

    Re: QOTW: What did you get for Christmas?

    I'm always boring when it comes to Christmas and Birthdays, if theres stuff i want, I generally buy it myself as and when..
    Socks, boxers, jeans, jumpers, traininers, smellies..
    The only thing I said i wanted was a new iPad as my mini2 is about dead, but don want to buy one myself as the mini4 is long in the tooth now so waiting until the new revision before I buy one myself....

    Too many expenses this year so I get nothing but that's ok, it's more important to me to spend Christmas with my family.

    Re: QOTW: What did you get for Christmas?

    A new reclining armchair, a bottle of Champagne from Sally's work raffle, she doesnt drink fizz, two bottles of red wine which is frustrating in the least, as I had to stop drinking red a year ago.

    A box of Turkish delight from the grandkids - they know me so well, and a bottle of Spicy Pumpkin Baileys - TRULY revolting !

    Re: QOTW: What did you get for Christmas?

    A jacket off my brother and his wife, I think they worry about me keeping warm, I'm getting on in year and live on my own. I on the other hand bought myself a Samsung MZ-V7E1T0BW 970 EVO 1TB M.2 . Next Christmas I might just treat myself to one last PC build.

    Grab that. Get that. Check it out. Bring that here. Grab anything useful. Take anything good.

    Tangible presents were modest this year by request, but we got some good times with friends and family that were worth far more.
