    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 :bolian:

    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 :eek:

    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.

    congrats, Trekkiedane! Does that mean you can bring your GF home with you now? :p
    (LOL never mind, I'm only envious)

    Bought a DVD today: Help! (an old Beatles movie) - ah, those were the days!

    ^I happened to visit England with my parents when Help! was in its first run. Some neighbors of ours were also there, and our parents let us go see it. We three teenagers thought we were pretty hot stuff, seeing a Beatles movie by ourselves in London! Thanks for reminding me of a fun memory. :)

    Just ordered my holiday dress- it was 60% off with a coupon! I love it when something I want is actually on sale at a deep discount. :D

    A tie bar--platinum-plated stainless steel, with a black onyx cabochon. Looks very nice.

    If the price tag can be trusted, I got quite a deal--I paid less than a third of the tagged price.
