Secret Santa Day in the studio!!

Santa Has come early to our studio, Today was secret Santa day, £5 spend but what will he bring?? I had the lovely job of Santa's Elf this year and had to hand all the presents out!Poor Collette! Santa got stuck in the snow and couldn't deliver her present till tomorrow! Ok It's my fault I got Collette and was the only one to leave my present at home with the cat!!
Nick got a cress head, which I think looks a lot like him!!
Look at my little happy face!! Santa bought me Reeves & Mortimer dvd!!
Santa bought Craig Steve Wright CD, Classic!! Who's to cool for school now!!
Helen got Australian Dollars, Well she is off on there on Saturday, isn't Santa thoughtful!!

Let it Snow!!

A little bit of snow and the world goes mad!! The most annoying thing is getting to work took an hour and a half to do 8 mile and there s no snow on the roads, whats with that!!!
I love the snow, i think it makes everything look beautiful! I feel really Christmassy, if only we were allowed to drink mulled wine at work and watch home alone, I'd make a good boss!!
