Last time I made popcorn it woudnt pop and I burnt the pan and there was smoke and it still makes me sad :sad:

Gifts Given:
An aunt got a copy of the Royal Game of Ur (a Babylonian board game) because she likes board games - side note you can play a cool digital version made by a friend of mine!
Another aunt got two 18th century cook books (reprints) by Amelia Simmons and Hannah Glasse because we both enjoy the Townsends youtube channel.
My grannie got a mug with the local news channels logo printed on it because she's ALWAYS watching the news :tongue:
I also got some people chocolates, make your own friendship bracelets, iron on t-shirt stickers, a pair of headphones and those kits where you make crystal landscapes grow.


Gifts Received:
I got pig slippers, a hot water bottle, a hat (not sure about that, I don't tend to wear hats), MONEY :happy: , Turkish delights, some pasta sauce??, a spatula (to use with the sauce?), thermal t-shrits.

Awww, I know you said you're conflicted about the Apple Pencil, but it's so sweet that they had your online name printed on it! (I'm assuming that's real and not a watermark, lol)

My family and I are trying to cut down on unnecessary clutter, so I gave away a lot of homemade pumpkin bread, which was a big hit. I also gave away a few jigsaw puzzles that I had customized with family pictures.

My family got me an airbrush, and the latest Kirby game :smile: Both of which I'm highly enjoying. The airbrush will be used for miniature art and doll customizing, and the game because Kirby is one of my favorites.

Dotmidi, I've had my sewing machine for ages, and I love it so much! I've done so many thing with it and it brings me so much joy. I hope you enjoy yours too, and use it to make many things!

This year my main present I got was an actually good quality electronic coffee bean grinder! I am pretty big into coffee making, but the previous grinder was a manual one that was a hassle to use and not nearly as precise. Now I can just press on and it grinds my freshly roasted beans into perfect little chunks!

Oh boy, I really get spoiled every year by my family and I get an awful lot of stuff ;; I'm very grateful always for it because we want to spoil each other after a long year. This year was a bit more poignant as 2 months prior, my nan passed away.

I got a beautiful bronze heart pendant. Within the pendant are some of her ashes. I got a Christmas card from her that she got before she passed, and a small music box that plays "You Are My Sunshine" from her too. Tears were shed, and they still are. It was weird she wasn't with us this Christmas, but I'm so thankful to have enjoyed one final summer with her.

Then, I got a Tamagotchi Smart, a Bratz doll, some Japanese Sylvanian Families, a Real Littles suitcase, some Sonic toys including the Green Hill Zone Lego and some Thomas & Friends designed model buses and trains (yes, I know I'm an adult, and I justify it by getting all the toys I wanted as a child! :grin:smile: And one of those incense burners that trails the smoke like a waterfall, an Aston Martin Sebastian Vettel t-shirt, and some star earrings. I'm certain I got more, but I can't remember ;;;
