    My boss was very kind to me today.

    He thanked me for all my hard work since he's been in post, and gave me a present.

    Now, I'm pretty sure that I've mentioned it before, and perhaps even coming to the pub with me and the rest of the work gang the previous week and buying a round didn't register a very important fact with him.

    Today, he gave me a bottle of 10 year old single malt whiskey.

    Trouble is, I'm teetotal!

    My dad has done quite well over the years from various bottles I've received at Christmas ;)

    Any bottles you don't want will be quickly disposed of if you send them to me. I'm especially fond of the single malts and sippin' whiskey.

    BTW Irish whiskey and american whiskey, but scotch whisky. There is a difference. :)

    As Will is the middle of seven siblings I think he has found a suitable Christmas present for his elder brother (not me), as long as it begins with a G LOL

    Stan and I were delighted to recieve presents from one of the junior members of our band on Monday night. I got a nice tin of biscuits and Stan was delighted with his can of John Smiths till he looked closer and found it was bubble bath.

    I love those "unwanted" presents - it gives me something to give to somebody else!

    I am sure there are some presents that have been going round one circle of friends for a couple of years now - I'm sure I've had it as both a birthday and Christmas present:D - I know I've certainly given it as a Christmas present!
