What d'ya all get... :)

Post by boggyb68 » Sun Dec 25, 2011 5:40 am

Well here's my other traditional thread... :lol:

I got Battlefield 3 and Assasins Creed Brotherhood (yeah it's taken me a year to finally get it!)

Only other games related pressies in the house was a Kinect with Kinect Adventures and Kinect Sports and Forza 4 my son got..

Will be treating myself to some gaming goodies in the next week and will also be raiding the App Store and Steam and GOG etc.. About to get Sonic CD on iOS.. :)

Also got Elemis toiletries, some Lynx, Clinique moisturiser, some nice vino and Foo Fighter "Wasting Light" CD, some cash and last but not least a singing Spurs gnome!

Not a bad haul.. Now gotta go as Shaky has just come on the TV.. :)

Cheers

I got a sword. Hand-and-a-half longsword, to be specific. I'm in a European martial arts society at university, so in order to practice, I got a sparring sword and lacrosse gloves (so that we don't break our wrists during sparring). Here's a picture, in which I'm not all that photgenic!

For sparring we just use gloves and a fencing helmet in terms of protection, so just the helmet to get now!
I also got some whisky and beer!

Bunch of Villa stuff (scarf, sign, calendar, tea towels!)

It's nice indeed, and that's coming from a Villa man! Oh yeah and I also bought Khet for everyone to play; brilliant fun so far, nothing like a bit of strategy going on during the day.
