Did you have a good Christmas?!

I did!

Check THIS out:

(Yes, it's all about family but the gifts are still great!)

See who got spoilt!

The buddha is from mumsy and dadsy - he'll be on the coffee table until I can convince The Hun that we need a new dark wood hutch thing to put it on.

The glass bowl is from dadsy's sister - it's shaped lile a sunflower. On top of the box are the (brown mary jane) crocs I got from youngest bro that I LOVE (I am totally embracing my inner dirty hippy) and a candle holder from The Hun's mumsy and dadsy - they also gave me the vegan cookbook with the cake on it at the front and some honey body butter that I love the smell of, but the whole honey-not-vegan thing means I passed it on to mumsy (who's more likely to use it anyway!) but I do feel a bit bad because she went to the effort of finding something not tested on animals...

The piece of paper in front of the box is a note from middle bro who made a donation in my name to our community - the people behind savebabe.com - that was really, Really, REALLY thoughtful! He also got me the two Korjo travel pouches that are on the left there.

Can you see the swede in front of the Oreo's there? That was from Santa - 'apparantly' 24 is too old to be still getting gifts from Santa, so the swede was an indication of his patience tiring... though he also got me the Oreo's, the banana bubblebath, the jacks game, the magnetic tic-tac-toe game, the big (beautiful!) Zoo book in front of the Buddha and Sarah Kramers How it all Vegan book (Santa actually bought one I'd already bought, but he decided mumsy and dadsy could keep it and they could buy me a different one - and as mumsy already has La Dolce Vegan I can jus nick hers if I wanted recipe's from it).

The inside thongs on the right (they're very comfy!) and the Little Britain notebook came from The Hun's sis and I got a beautiful travel notebook from eldest bro and eldest bro's gf for Japan (under the cookbook in the middle) and last but not least I got a NEW iPOD!!! Yup - it's a 30gig black one and it works and everything - from The Hun (awwww!). I've already braced the crowds and bought an iTrip for the car and an aluminium case (this one's NOT going to break! I promise!).

*phew*

Hope you had an awesome day! (There was also lunch at the Gowrie house with my fam and two stops at the Fadden house with The Hun's fam, but we all know nothing terrribly exciting ever actually happens on Christmas day!)

Good score, Enny!!

I like the Buddha, that's very cool, a dark wood hutch would be really nice for it too :)

I'm glad you had a cool Christmas!!

Steph said...

You did very well! My friend recently bought herself a Buddha and has THE best luck ever since.

Merry Christmas Enny. xx

Enny said...

D'jen - ta and I know! I just gotta get the bling/room for one!

steph - why thankyou miss steph - hope you had a good one and that perhaps I will get some luck too!

Adam said...

Whoa!! Dude!!

I do love that everyone is putting a super awesome effort to vegan you up good. How totally supportive and cool. You did stash good.

I haven't got any gifts yet, maybe today... or maybe I've been too bad/naughty/awesome.

Lulu said...

Hey Enny! Bit late but merry merry christmas. Seems like you had a lovely day and scored lots of great things. The buddha is very very cool. I have a very small laughing buddha which is very cute, but I would love a big one too!!

Eating vegan in Japan is going to be hard as the still do not understand the concept of vegatarinism. For example if you say you are a vegatarian they respnd with `It is ok, it is chicken`... But if you say you have allergies they are more helpful. So say you are allergic to everything but vegtables and other vegan foods (Sorry not up with my vegan vocab) and they will point out what you can eat. Bring snacks from Australia that you know are vegan!!!

Enny said...

adam - it's lovely, isn't it?! Even the cranky lady at work went to a special effort to get some bathroom stuff that was animal free and not tested on animals - so thoughtful! Have you got any presents yet?!

lulu - Merry Christmas!!! I've heard it's not TOO hard but that I've gotta watch out for fish - it's in everything! But The Hun got a phrase book that has two pages dedicated to explaining vegan, and all the stuff that you can't eat, so hopefully that all works out! Is there any sorta stuff that I can't bring in?!

Adam said...

No, not yet.

Cara's landing 6:05pm so I should be ripping glittery paper at 6:05:01pm. I hope she understand's shes not getting no loving welcoming huggage until 6:10pm.

Juuuuuuuust kidding. 6:09.

Enny said...

adam - awww, that sucks! Count down the hours till pressies and minutes until welcome huggage =o)

Sarah's Blog said...

I hope you enjoy the book. :)

Adam said...

Whoa! I got presents.

The only bummer is, the big one that I've been hanging for for months needs to be returned to Melbourne and exchanged... sigh. Patience is a virtue? Patience is an idiot!

(My apologies to chicks and dudes called Patience, maybe get your name changed to Adamita or Adam?

Adam said...

Whoa! You scored with the washing basket for Christmas, I love blue.

Adam said...

Damn, I'm totally messing up your comments section... but I have a question.

The whiteninjacomics bit on the side? I clicked on that today and I just don't get the comics they've posted. Do people find them humourous or am I missing something?

Enny said...

adam - D'oh! What is it?!

adam - I knew you would - that's TOTALLY why I sneaked it into the background there.

adam - I guess they're a type of humour not everyone gets... here are some of my favs (can't be assed with the code):

D'Jen said...

OMG I love white ninja comics!!

So much so I have a t shirt!!

Another reason we are obviously blogosphere soulmates!!

Boysenberry said...

Quite a nice (and appropriate) pile of plunder.

Oh, and damn you for the list of White Ninja links. I should be doing other stuff, but find myself snorting over the comics :)

enny said...

d'jen - I never knew!!! Which one?! I have the luvbster shirt and I luvb it =o)

Mr B'b'rry - why thankyou! And while I'm sorry to hear you should be doing work, it's good to see there's a lil bit of public servant in you still (I TOTALLY shoulda done that at work today rather than last night!) ;o)

Adam said...

Okay, I read a whole lot of them and I just.... can't.... get into them. There were a couple that nearly made me smirk but really, I'd much rather read Calvin & Hobbes...

Sorry internet.

Enny said...

adam - boo! C'mon now... TRY HARDER!

Adam said...

Fine. I'll just bow to peer pressure then and try harder then.

Enny said...

adam - good boy!
