    Still Xmas eve but secret santa presents and office presents have been exchanged probably.

    I gave the boss a bottle of nice whisky not expecting anything back.

    Today he gave me 20oz of fillet steak and 20oz of rump steak.

    Awesome present considering I don't drink alcohol and he knows this so got me some delicious protein.

    Had all of the fillet steak for lunch with some roquefort.

    Will return tomorrow to list other presents.

    Some nice gifts..

    Oh, and I already know my gf has got me a pair of DC trainers since I had to try them on and pick my favourites.

    They're mostly black with some cool green and white bits.

    Thanks! I'm really happy with them. I received them early because, well, obviously my grandmother had to ship and transfer things over. And my boyfriend was uncertain about the Kobo Glo, as he wondered if I'd rather have a Kindle. I like the Kobo Glo, though. And I had to try on the pyjamas to see if they fit, which they did, and they were so comfortable I didn't want to give them back . In the end we simply decided to swap presents there and then. Though I do still have a little surprise gift for him.

    Your trainers sound cool!

    I got money from my parents which I'll put towards getting a new 15 inch Macbook Pro and case for it.

    Overall, I didn't really want anything for Christmas so they gave me money to use on something I need. My old laptop is okay for general browsing but its almost 4 years old now and I need something more powerful for development.

    Yeah

    By the 6th January I should have all of the money I need to order it. I'm going to buy it outright online and upgrade the CPU to the next level specification. It's going to cost around £1400 in total but will be worth it as I'll get years and years of use out of it. I like to spend my money on things that are going to be worth it, get good use and also have a potential for making me more money in the long run. The Macbook Pro I currently have paid for itself within months.
