What I got for Christmas (2012)

Not the most eloquent of titles, I know, but it does what it says on the tin.  I've been very poorly since Boxing Day, so sorry if it seems a bit late to still be talking Christmas presents, but I'm only now just starting to feel human again.  The boyfriend started coming down with something on Christmas Eve and I started to get the same thing on Chistmas Day.  Luckily we were well enough to have our Christmas dinner and didn't start to feel really poorly until the evening.  Since then we've been hibernating at home with lots of tissues and Lemsips (bleurgh).  Looking at Twitter it seems lots of people have had a very similar thing :(

While I've been poorly I've managed to watch all three series of Downton Abbey which I'd been meaning to try for ages as lots of people told me it was good.  I really liked it and devoured all of the episodes on my Kindle in just three days.  Aside from that I've been reading lots of blogs and so many people have been showing what they got for Christmas, so I thought I'd just grab a few snaps and do the same.

I loved everything I got!  I think my favourites are my new palettes, the nail polishes, the candles, the diary (for blogging) and my Kindle, oh and the cookbooks. I have so many amazing new toys to play with :) Oh and if you're wondering what the red / clear spaceship pod thingie is, it's a cupcake carrier! 

I hope you got great presents too and had a lovely Christmas.  And if you were poorly like me, I hope you're feeling better.  
Did you get any of the same presents as me?
