Brother sent me a $200 Amazon gift card for Christmas and my Birthday. My Mom sent me $400 for Christmas and $400 for my birthday. Wifey bought me an awesome flannel shirt that has camo colors in the plaid, along with a very similar flannel hoodie. Some nice tan sweat pants, two warm hats and a pair of gloves and a couple of other things, For my birthday, wifey bought me a speaker cab for my one mini amp and a few guitar tools.

For Christmas, my stepson bought me some great gifts, including a root beer float kit.

I got a tenner from the good aunt!

Additional haul : jumper, long sleeve T-shirt, sweatpants. All black, my family must think I'm a goth.
Duvet cover : dark grey, see above.
Ritter Sports chocolate : family knows I can eat those without a migraine.
Chocolate Orange : see above
Popcorn Maker : been eating a lot of microwave popcorn lately.

And, honestly, that's it. It's been a bit lacklustre this year. Normally I buy myself a "big festive treat", but even I couldn't think of anything to buy me!
.. then again, I am still paying for a MacBook!

Along with He-Naan (go play Lucy Dreaming to get the reference ), it was a very Star Wars Christmas: a few Black series figures, and the new micro galaxy ships range.

I got some Lego Star Wars sets, several 3D puzzles and loads of foreign foodstuffs. "Nom-Vom '23" is going to be comng in a few days (minus the couple I've nommed already!). Yay!!!

Oh, and "Mario Vs Rabids 2 - Sparks Of Hope" for Switch. I absolutely loved the first game and 100%'ed it and the DLC. High hopes for this one

All the money Mom sent me got put in the bank and I immediately applied it to my credit card bill.

Bro's Amazon gift card, ordered a nice Sudoku board game for me and wifey, and the advent calendar for next year.

Oddly, I received a totally bitching flashlight in the mail today addressed to me that I did NOT order, wifey did not order and my family did not order. Not sure who sent me an $85 flashlight, but thank you. I love it!!

And since we are talking about Crimbo, we finally downloaded the photos from our camera yesterday so here is a photo of our Christmas Eve Buffet... Gluten Free this year, due to me being diagnosed with celiac disease (find out 100% next month) :/

Still was good food though

@TRG Looks like some good eats! We did turkey, mashed potatoes, carrots, stuffing, yeast rolls and lots of turkey gravy. No dessert, due to the snow and ice could not get back out to the store to buy a pie or buy the stuff to make a pie.

Will be making the same dinner for my birthday, except will have peas and should be able to get out and buy a strawberry ice cream cake.

I also do Brice's Eve and for dinner that night will make hamburger gravy, mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables.

@Brice, we cant cook Turkey It is always dry, so for Christmas Day lunch we have a Chicken roll (but no stuffing this year - again due to GF ), roast potatoes, roast carrots etc.
