Xmas 2015: What did we get?

Post by Sputryk » Fri Dec 25, 2015 3:10 pm

We've had a thread like this every year for some years, now; so I figured whilst I'm here I may as well start it off for this year. As the title asks: what did you all get?


So, that:

Dr Who: The Vault book
Purple and Lime wool sweater by Versace
Herringbone design tie
Susquehanna trilby in lilac
5x whisky marmalades - Bowmore, Famous Grouse and Glenfarclas
Edinburgh whisky cask - sauces, marmalade and mustard
3x miniature whiskys - Famous Grouse, Teachers, Grants
Large Leffe bruin Belgian beer
Large Hoegaarden Belgian beer
Peronalised 3-way Coaster/bottle-opener/fridge-magnet

And unseen, £20 cash and, from Secret Santa at work, the DVD 'Air Doll' (A Japanese movie - Google it!)

Not a bad haul at my age. :)

The best thing I got was the discovery that, in PS4 Driveclub, they've added the ability to change the difficulty to easy and customise the controller to how I like to play.

After months of not bothering with this amazing game, due to the rock hard (unfair?) gameplay, I find that after all the updates, it's finally playable. Lol it's went from impossible to challenging :)
Thoughts and prayers.
