Six books - all of favourite authors, C.D.s, Champneys goodies, lovely photo of OH and g.son taken in summer and transposed on to a canvas. Neither are looking at the camera, on wall in pride of place. I asked for wireless mouse and keyboard and I got them and a hamper arrived from Fortnum & Masons but I have to share with himself!

A very pretty china mug with Queen Elizabeth roses on it. I did very well as I see we all did.
