What's inside the pretty box? Even if the gift was the box itself, I would've been happy!
Inside I found a glass teapot and a selection of different flowering teas. I first discovered flowering tea in 2013 through various trips out for dim sum and afternoon teas. I've used one of the flowers already. It's so dreamy the way the flower opens
The biggest surprise was two games I used to play when I was younger. Knights & Merchants I had a free demo of with an computing magazine I used to get back in the day - so tracking this down was amazing! The Pokemon game has kept me entertained on the commutes between London and Suffolk over the festive period. Always when I watch Sucker Punch I am reminded of how alternative but awesome the soundtrack is - my favourites being "Army of Me" by Bjork, "Sweet Dreams" and "White Rabbit" - an Alice in Wonderland inspired track. Now I no longer have to trawl YouTube for them!
I mostly had books and DVDs to be honest with you. I love Luther so was really excited with this Luther novel from my grandparents. I've never seen Red Riding Hood before, but I'm really into fairy tales and the trailer looks promising.
What sorts of things did you receive this year?
