I got a new cat a month or so back, which was my present. I also got a cat flap, which I will be very grateful for pretty soon when he can go out. I am pretty sure he came with a bear that shits in his litter tray every morning.
Edit. Also, my wife got me the lego millennium falcon, pics when I have built it later on.
I have been using my sous vide kit to try to ensure I can get to the pub today rather than be prepping.... I have par cooked parsnips, carrots, potatoes and sprouts already, and the turkey is boned and rolled for roasting. Aunt Bessy lending a hand with the yorkies (so sue me), shop bought gravy, pigs in blankets ... all just needs throwing in the oven at various times. We'll likely be too pissed to do half of that
