Very gorgeous slippers, my favourite chocolate and a new bead for my bracelet.

Because I'm pregnant people seem to think I would like boxes of biscuits..Ben and the children are enjoying them and I'm grateful for the thought!

He is called julemanden in Danish @clothmama :merryxmas:
He only brings presents for the kids at our house, and the rest is presents we give to eachother :) so I didn't get anything from julemanden. But got a overlocker from DH, some homemade paintings and creative works from the girls, a bra and panties from my mom ( I lost about 10 kg since August so can't fit anything but my sportsbras :giggle: ) knitted socks, towels and charger for the car from MIL (and FIL?), money from the girls greatgrandmas (there are 3) so got 3000 dkkr, a vase and leaven (from a prof baker) from my brother :yahoo:

I already had my sewing machine from my parents which I already used to make 6 Christmas stockings to give to Serens friends, which we filled with chocolate coins and an elf that she made.)

From DH and the girls I got a new handlebar bag for my bike, a head torch, merino wool base layer - top & bottoms and a book. I also like toblerones at Christmas - I have at least 4.

Also got £50 of my dad that I'm not allowed to tell dh about, just not sure what to spend it on, was tempted to put it towards another cat but dh doesn't want a third.

I was spoiled by DH and the boys - the latest Nigella cookbook, a bundle of Lush bath stuff, a framed ACEO print by Ryan Firchau and some music books and reeds (for my clarinet which I've not touched in ages) to encourage me to play again.

I got completely spoiled by dh, he bought me a Tiffany necklace, a 4x4 monster truck driving experience and a parascending course with tandem flight (squeee can't wait!!).

My best friend bought me a vintage jug and bowl set for my bathroom and made me a gorgeous cross stitch Mackintosh rose to sit on the top of the piano.

The inlaws also gave us a largish sum of money to spend on a weekend away just for me and dh whilst they have the kids for us :yahoo: :yahoo: .

:doh: Of course he is!! I remember now you've said it @Aeseldyr - it has been a long time since I lived there - over 20 years so I'm very very rusty (should really try to go back at some point, would love to catch up with people!). He doesn't bring for adults here either - I was joking :giggle:

Sounds like everyone got some amazing things!

@Allie we need a pic of your Tiffany's bracelet!

@autumnalgirl that would have been 'great' for me with my GDM while preggers!
