My Birthday Haul

Later this week is my birthday, a combination of my wife not being able to hold her water and the fact I won't get to open stuff on my birthday means that I got to open my presents tonight.

I was also lucky enough to receive my birthday present from my mum early because it was being posted to my flat.

So happy with the haulage that I wanted to write about it!

Here is what Elaine got me

  • Light up USB lead for my Raspberry Pi
  • An LED Light matrix for my Raspberry Pi
  • Some blue beer (had a glass, it is bloody blue as you will see in the pictures later!)
  • An Unt mug
  • An amazing card
  • A 3Doodler
  • An egg-squarer
  • Batman – Death of the Family
  • Some God is Dead comics I was missing

My mum got me an amazing laptop bag.

Best wife and mum ever! (If you buy me a present you will also be the best person ever, you cannot be my wife or mum though).

Here some pictures!
