    It's not officially Christmas for several hours but I thought I'd start this one now as I suspect some of you guys may also already have had early consignments from the North Pole ;-)

    One of mine was a 103 piece inspection grade Mitutoyo gauge block set, it's over 20 years old but it's in great condition :D

    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    My prezzie to myself is 200 years old, cost me 385 + 8 P&P and while fully functional is completely useless. I bought the wife some fags

    That's lovely, and something gun related which no spouse could complain about as an ornament ;-)

    Ah, a long term project, that'll keep you busy for a while, I'd say 18 to 25 years at a guess ;-)

    I had fun throwing cuddly toys up the stairs last week while Chloe was sliding them back down the bannister rail. I am 65 and she is nearly 2 so we just carried on until a responsible adult arrived. When she is bigger I will teach her how to blow things up.
    I bought a treasure chest and started throwing all my loose change in it for her, it is quite heavy now. Maybe we will blow that up. I am only here to serve
