Gill, thanks for visiting my blog; glad you liked it. As for your Christmas Meme, I think I'll pass, but on Number 1, what happened to "Newspaper" - that's what I use. The property section and Page 3 of The Sun make very colorful wrapping paper.

I know what you mean about cheap chocolate. A neighbour of ours used to get teenager cheap chocolate praline truffles- and he was three years old at the time!!
