For January, my 'precious' is going to be THUMPER......
...my very first Christmas present from Craig, when I was the tender age of fifteen (yes, we HAVE been together that long!). He turned up on Christmas Eve, with a huge, handmade Christmas cracker which had me totally intrigued...and made me promise not to open it until Christmas morning....... I have absolutely no recollection of what I bought Craig, but I know it wasn't wrapped anywhere nearly as spectacularly! I remember forcing myself to keep my cracker till last to open that Christmas morning, because I just loved looking at it! When I DID open it, Thumper looked up at me....sporting a pretty blue ribbon- which disappeared over time- and looking much less scruffy than he does now! I have had lots of lovely gifts from Craig over the years, but Thumper and that wonderful cracker hold a special place in my heart.
