I'm guessing that everything has been posted.

Hope everyone enjoys their gifts and I would love to see photos where possible. :)

No SS has arrives I'm afraid so whomever sent mine may want to check whatever tracking they used (if any?).
Sorry.

Sorry to hear that tachi. :(

Your SS has been done it for the last few years so at the moment until I hear otherwise I will give them the benefit of doubt.

I will send them a PM though.

Thanks for the PM, all clear now and it's the Royal Mail's fault for not leaving a card :)

Thanks and apologies to my SS :D

A big merry christmas to all, and a big thankyou to my secret Santa.

I was given a very sexy looking NES system retrospective book, a cool Gameboy themed notbook and that Christmas classic of choclate coins. Cheers SS! :D

Hope everyone has a great day.

Very impressed with what Santa brought me :)
An awesome Guineas world record gaming facts book, nice retro cup, cool Storm Trooper Soap on a Rope and a box of lovely sweeties. Ads to that a new 7800 game and a Raspberry Pi Zero W. I have a 3b already but planned on a second one for my daughter's room (so I can keep the 7800 safe) so this'll work beautifully.
Thanks Santa :)
