Well, I think I managed to thank everyone for their birthday greetings - but I'd hate to leave anyone out so please let me know if I have.

Many thanks to mother2012 - your beautiful Christmas card arrived today and I just adore the darling little LOTR calendar that came with it - it will be kept next to my pc throughout the year:)

I had some quite unusual bday/xmas gifts this year including a Little Piggy foot massager from my son - I tried this out today - bliss!! I also had a gorgeous little Kokeshi Japanese doll from my daughter - for anyone who doesn't know they're exquisitely handcrafted wooden ornaments of Japanese figures - I'd long coveted the one she gave to my mother some time ago so I was delighted with this:) And - also from daughter - two tickets to see 'Madam Butterfly' in May *gasp*. I've never been to an opera before and always said that if I ever went MB is the one I'd love to see. Amongst many other things my hubbie gave me the ROTK Complete Recordings which, needless to say, is sublime:) I really think they have spoilt me this year - and I love it!!

Wonderful presents! I tried to get the ROTK recordings, but they are sold out. They don't know when/if they will be available. So, you are doubly blessed.

I heard something about that but from what I understood, a fault had been found on one of the disks so Amazon were refunding people's money. It seems very strange that they won't say if they will be available again in the future. I haven't noticed anything wrong with mine yet. I feel very lucky to have it - I know a lot of people have been disappointed:(

Awwww, bless! It sounds like you had some wonderful pressies!

The foot massager, heavenly :) I've seen those Kokeshi dolls, I think, in the Japanese Shop in York, they are sweet!

Madam Butterfly is the only opera, thus far, that I've seen live and I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy it. So beautiful, so sad... *sigh*

And the complete ROTK recordings, wonderful!

Glad you had such a lovely day :)

That's where she bought this one!! She went to York for a couple of days in the summer:)

Yes, I'm really looking forward to Madam Butterfly - I know a few people who have seen it and they all love it - even those who aren't normally opera fans:)

Aha, so I am thinking of the right dolls :) It's a lovely shop and we always go in for a look even if we don't buy anything. I always drool over the kimonos!

It does help if you can see the surtitles, although the story of Madam Butterfly is pretty well-known anyway. The music is wonderful!

Oh Mel - I'm so sorry I missed you out!! I do remember seeing your post, it was one of the first, but somehow I must have missed it when I was trawling back, which is a shame because it's so lovely!! Such a gorgeous card - and, of course, lovely pics of Lij/Frodo. Thank you so much:) *hugs*
