I got lots of lovely pressies but one of them was a diving Goodie bag from Nick. I think the hidden message was "carry your own bloody scallops..."

What did you get and what does it say about what your friends and family think about you???

I got a new cut throat razor. I can guess what the hidden message is there, but i'm going to ignore it.
   Nothing diving related because i've got everything.  A couple of books, socks, cordless drill and a Red letters day voucher that i'm going to adopt a dolphin with

I got a bottle of pernod, a box of chocolate brazil nuts,
a Led Zeppelin live DVD, and I found out on Christmas Eve that I have been promoted at work.

I might finally be able to take that diving holiday with my family that I have promised myself for the past God knows how many years.

I got socks.

Sports socks

I have loads of sports socks and no normal socks

This shows how little my wife listens to me  


Question: What do you want for Christmas darling?

Answer: Ohhh I really need some new socks

No being of the mail gender and totally incapable of cryptic messages if I had wanted Sports socks I would have inserted the word 'Sports' in between 'new' and 'socks'.

She also got be a (small) jar of Dowe Egberts Coffee so she obviously loves me a little bit

A veritable smorgasbord of kit:

1. Slippers, size 10, pair, one, for the use of

2. Book tokens, various denominations, plenty, for the spending of

3. (and the kind folk at Credenhill bought me the option of either a) Ruger, Red Hawk, one; or H&K SP-7, one, choice of, for the making. See you on the ranges - figure 11s, various, for the drilling


4. Single malts, Irish, ages, various, for the consumption of


So you see, it's not been all bad

Well, I this is a more of a giving than a receiving story, but a few weeks ago I got me a secondhand self-inflating SMB for a bargain price.

Being the generous soul that I am I decided to give my old SMB to the missus, as her's is a bit crap I my old one is a nice AP valves one. Only problem is that it's got Janos written down the side in permanent marker. Now I couldn't cross out Janos and write Pippa as that'd look crap, so instead I added an apostrophe and stuff so that it now reads:

J
A
N
O
S'
Bird        



Of course I got her some other presents as well as otherwise I'd have been wearing my nadgers for earrings for a while.

Laters,
  Janos
