Thanksalot!

It was actually a present from my parents... They thought that after having helped my sister buying a house -on two different occasions- it was high time they also gave a little financial aid to me

So, basically, the generation that was given everything back in the sixties are now giving it forward before the taxman takes his cut from the inheritance

Whatever: I have nice parents

Thanks!

Yeah, they are 'special', aren't they?

Well, basically they gave me back everything I've paid in rent over the last ~decade, and the remainder of the mortgage is now in my name (at 2% pa) and while it still costs me the same every month, it is now mine! -What an x-mas gift

Way to go, trekkiedane! I'm so happy for you! That's some serious independence you've acquired there!

Yule cards with the Grinch on them that said "Merry Grinchmas" on the inside. Have to get more, though because I know too many people.

Got some more (used) glass bottles to keep my home made bitters and liqueurs in. - I'll post an photo of my 'collection' when I can get around to taking it.

Thanks, although... I am more than just a bit nervous about it... I never before owed a bank this much

Coffee & a sandwich. However, I failed miserably to buy what I really wanted, which was a white/cream turtleneck jumper. Nobody seems to make them in my size, either on the internet or on the high street, at least not for a price that doesn't give me vertigo.
