I got Mirror's Edge which I am looking forward to trying! and I got Crash Time too... the first one! I know it is not exactly cutting edge but I really enjoyed the demo and am sure I will enjoy the game too!  I might even write reviews of both of these titles after I have cracked the plastic seals and given them a spin.

My favourite present was a painting from my Mum, she painted it herself and it is just lovely! so YES! I got what I wanted for christmas, and I hope you all did too!

I don't do xmas, actually. My honest opinion is that it's become too commercial and the spirit of it has gone the way of the dodo. So I'm a bit of "bah, humbug" this time of year.

The last several years the deal of pressies has been that around December (which can be from November to February) hubby and me decide on a biggish thing that we'd like, and get it. No wrapping, no secrets, just a joint project. We're not giving (nor receiving), as per agreement, pressies from parents or inlaws, nor from brothers or other family. Suits me fine.

Xmas was this year spent with the inlaws in Holland, and was really really low-key. The 24th, which is the BIG day in Denmark, I spent reading The Stand by Stephen King, as well as doing some shopping for computer stuff with my brother-in-law (he just earned himself his first computer on the 18th), and the 25th was spent with some aunts of my hubby's. Very lowkey and actually quite nice. Nothing too xmassy about it, just nice and comfy.

Oh, and it's not xmas without snow anyway, so... some people see me actually get in the mood for xmas around January or February, if we have snow. So sue me. I still mainly go for the spirit and the winter solstice stuff. Must be my Viking blood

Multiple bloodclots on my kidneys, spleen, colon and most of my lower body, and they bloody hurt, I'd like to thank all the people who sent me get well soon messages they did help, i'm on the road to recovery, thanks to the quick thinking of the doctors and all the staff who looked after me, and a very big thanks to the kind nurses who kept me off my face on mophine for a week so i didn't feel any pain.

hope to see you all online soon xxx kev

Take it easy Kev as I know you will, Miss Stella will be there on your return dude.  Why didnt someone tell me what you were going through man? Having Morphine on tap is a delightful and magical thing I know, tried to escape the hospital with an oxygen bottle thingy attached for a smoke but was told later I would likely have exploded lighting up, but sacrifice a smoke?
