There is a bit of annual tradition on this blog from its very start of doing a Christmas edition rather like as if we'd been around of each others houses and said "How was Christmas with you?"
For me I was a bit late getting up as I had a migraine on Christmas Eve that was reluctant to shift so I got dressed and came down for a light breakfast before messaging my Caregiver, BFF and opening my presents.
The Beano was a staple comic of mine growing up even if today it's only available on download and we always had the Christmas Annual so getting that as a hardback with the stories of Gnasher, Dennis the Menace, Minnie the Minx and co really is a ritual I love.
The Dandy suffered a bigger fate as it was discontinued outright but they do one off editions and a annual so I like to read new adventures of Korky the Kat and Desperate Dan of Cow Pie fame.
I love reading although with my learning disabilities I can't manage anything other than junior fiction and even then anything getting more above a reading age of 12 is hard going so Mommy bought me this First edition of the new Jacqueline Wilson novel set in Victorian England.
She also bought me the last Historical novel she wrote in a series looking very much at life in Great Britain from a child in hospital in the early nineteen-fifties. I'll write a full review when I've read them .
I had this originally in Paperback but had been longing to find a copy with the original text in so my Brother gave me some money toward buying this used copy lacking its dust jacket as original hard backs are really quite rare and expensive.
I had some chocolate oranges, money and biscuits too from people that care about me.
