I didn’t really know what i wanted this year, so i’ve only got a few things.

A couple of months ago i asked dad if he would look for a good winter coat for me. I do have a rain coat but sometimes it just doesn’t warm me up. He ordered me one from
But it was a little on the large side. I asked for a 14 to 16 as i’m rather big on the chest but i discovered that it was just too big. So we went shopping for me to feel some coats. I didn’t want one with fur or one that was ridiculously bright or just looked horrible. I picked a style that i wanted so dad went and ordered it online.

The coat is a smaller size (12 to 14) and is kind of puffy but not too bad. It comes with a detachable hood and doesn’t drown me but i still have room. I never wear the hood anyway and prefer to wear hats as i found that i can hear more without a hood. The hood rustles that much that it is hard to hear traffic and that. I don’t have a hearing problem, it’s just cars sound so much different in the rain, for example, so if you can, i find it better to just have a hat.

The coat is great and i feel really warm in it.

I also got
Armani Diamonds
Perfume (I think this is the right one as there are two types), money and chocs from my mum. I also got a box of celebrations as well.

I’m not sure i mentioned it when we went for our
Fundraising meal,
But my friend P got me a nice necklace and bracelet. The necklace was a right pain though to get out of the box as it was wrapped around something but you had to pull on the necklace to get it up to get whatever it was attached to out. I got it eventually though.

So i guess all that is left to me to say now is have a happy safe christmas and enjoy whatever you do. I’ll probably write more before the new year though so i’ll not wish you a happy new year just yet :).

The "MacNeil MCN300 Green Apple Talking Alarm Clock"

Today my friend got around to giving me her christmas present. (she forgot it last week, and we hadn’t seen each other before that). It was worth waiting though.

She got me a willo “friend ship” angel, two charms for my charm bracelet, and a talking clock. I thought i’d write about the clock.

I got the
MacNeil MCN300 Green Apple Talking Alarm Clock
Or should I say my friend got it from there. I thought that at first the willo angel was in the smaller box and that the clock in the bigger one, but the clock was in a really small box. When I put the batteries in, an alarm suddenly sounded. Jesus it was loud! I pushed down the stalk at the top, and it made a little sound then told me the time, and the temperature. The time and temperature needed to be set though, as the temperature was in farinheight and the time was AM instead of PM.

There are three buttons on the back of it. Two of them set the time, while the third changes the temperature from Celsious to farrenheight and back.

I haven’t set the alarm on it yet, and don’t think I will as it is extremely loud and there is no volume control! Apart from that, it is a good wee clock. It has a female american voice which is quite clear.

I was hoping to use the clock to wake me up, but I think i’ll be sticking to the phone lol. I wish there was a volume on it! It’ll be useful for checking the time though if I wake up in the middle of the night. I’ll have to remember to cover the speaker though when I do lol.

Apart from no volume it seems like a cool wee clock! I haven’t done much with it though. It wasn’t designed for visually impaired, but it is so useful! I think there are lights on it too but not sure.

I must thank my friend though for such a useful christmas present! (I got her a cap and an amazon certificate).
