On to the presents... I got the best surprise ever!! My parents got me a new phone, and the one I really wanted the HTC Desire Z, it's so pretty!! I have been playing with it continuously since Christmas, it is completely customisable like my last phone so I have set up my desktops the same as before (it's nice that I don't have to change everything) but it also has so much more...
I had an android phone before but it was very temperamental and decided that it didn't like 3G or the marketplace so it's fantastic to use a phone that works perfectly. I know its sad but the first thing I downloaded was angry birds (love that game!!), I also really wanted to try out the Amazon kindle app which is surprisingly easy to use, I downloaded a multitude of free books from Amazon, I'm part way through Alice in Wonderland as we speak. One feature I loved of my old phone was the side slide qwerty keyboard which was the biggest reason why I had my eye on this phone. Instead of sliding it sort of lifts and drops into place but it does feel a lot sturdier than it looks, it also means I have use of the whole screen when typing. The only problem is I keep mistyping, as the keys are arranged a little differently so I apologise if anyone gets half finished texts from me.
My other presents included a couple of beautiful scarves, a gorgeous twisted gold and white gold diamond necklace with from Graeme, Christmas tree earrings, lots of books including the first 4 from the Guardians of Ga'hoole series (I loved the film, in 3D it was absolutely amazing, but I am a bit partial to animated films) and Toy Story 3 yay!! Like last year Dad and I bought the same present for each other, this year it was an AddictABall, we did get different sizes so it wasn't that bad. They are addictive and ridiculously hard, I have only completed the first section of the small ball, i'll be here till next Christmas at this rate...
Mum got the Lego Harry Potter board game for Chris and I which was also awesome, and great fun to make and play, which we did all afternoon. I love Lego!!
So all in all it was a pretty fantastic Christmas, I hope you all had a brilliant time too.
Lastly, for those of you who want to know, I made personalised headbands as Christmas Eve Surprises for the girls, which suited them both very well; although Graeme said it looked as though we had ears hehe.
Oh and Scott and Graeme had to try them on too hehe, very fetching!!
