The first one had plastic pillows in it.... we didn't order those did we???!

OH!! They were hiding some coloured card that we'd ordered!  Excellent!

This one's the other package.....

This one was a book that we'd been wanting to read for ages...!

 On Tuesday we got this package.....

This was two packs of white card that we ordered!!!

 On Wednesday, we got this package......

Which was more coloured card - but this one had different colours in it from the first pack we ordered!

And then today we got the last package delivered!!!

Then Andrea gave us a special unwrapped present.....!!
It's our own Piratey treasure chest!!

Wiv loads of treasure in it!!!!  WOWZERS!!

Then we opened this present from Arnty Diane.

It's a special spoon.....

And it's got MY NAME engraved on the handle!!!!  That means that nobody else is allowed to use it!
This one was for Andrea.....

Oooohhh...... it's long an squishy!!

It's another woolly scarf!!!!  We can make a blanket fort with all these scarves!!

Then we pulled a cracker wiv Andrea!!

We won some Vampire killing stakes!!! They'll come in handy one day!

Then we pulled another cracker.....

Joke - why did the microscope cross the road?
To get to the other side!!!

THEN we got a big red bag from Arnty Heather

We got a blanket.....

And a tub ov Minions!!

And we got a posh glass mug too!!

And a minion coaster to put it on!!!

By now we were getting hungry so Andrea got breakfast ready.  First she got a little bottle of Verve Klee-Koh champagne opened.....


And we also had two hot kwussants wiv butter on them!!!  

After breakfast, Andrea got out a Really Big Box.  She said it was my present all for me.....!!!

This is hard work opening this up....!

We got a Big Spotty Mug and a jar of marshmallows and a little tub of Whittards salted caramel hot chocolate powder and another little tub of Whittards luxury hot chocolate powder

And it's ALL FOR MEEE!!!!!  Oh, and I get to use my own spoon with this too!  Brill!!

By now George had woken up, so we got Andrea's present out from under the tree!!!

When she opened it up, she went SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE really loudly!!  (that's a good thing!)  It's a tub of Horrids salted caramelt and ginger fudge.  We said she could taste my hot chocolate if we could taste her fudge and she said OK.  

That's the fudge there...!

Then we got the white envelope out that came from a bookcrossing person......

And some postcards too!

This was the final prezzie, from Sandy Bear in Canada!

Oh!  There's an envelope inside!!!

 OH!!!  I wonder what these spell....??

 Then it was nearly time to go visit Andrea's parents.  We'd ordered a taxi because the weather was crap, so a few minutes before it was due, we went outside to wait for it.

 And five minutes later, we arrived here at their block of flats!!!

 We had some more champagne (Andrea got too drunk to operate the camera!!) and opened some more presents (we'll show you those later!) and then we sat down to lunch!  It was YUMTASTIC!!

 Several hours later, we decided to walk home - mainly to walk off all the food but it also wasn't raining either!

 We decided to go through the park.....

 And we left a weathergram next to those flowers.  The bench was for somebody's Daddy.

 We left another weathergram on a gate.

 ......and another one on a bus stop timetable!!!

 There's the Christmas Tree at Palmeira Square!

 It's pretty!!!

 Then we stopped at lots of bus stops to leave loads of weathergrams out!!

 We saw another tree as well!!

 And here we are almost home.....

 There's the sea there...... looks a bit rough and choppy today....

 And the last weathergram left out!

when we got home, Andrea got out one of her presents - a big green tin of one of Horrids coffees! - and decided to have some as an afternoon treat!  
We'll show you the rest of her presents tomorrow!!!

What did you get?
