Christmas Countdown - Most Memorable Present

December 21, 2011
As much as I love getting presents now, the most magical were the ones I received when I was younger. Some of my favourites have been a ballet tutu, a huge basket full of stationery (yes, I was a stationery geek and still am) and a cabbage patch doll.

My most memorable present however, has to be the present I received when I was 11 or 12.

A little hamster! I had been out with my parents a few days before and they'd been looking at hamsters for my sister Jess. I was looking at them and really really wanting one but for some reason I didn't ask for it- I think I thought it was too late for extra Christmas presents. On Christmas morning we opened all of our presents from 'Father Christmas' and then went downstairs for presents from Mum and Dad. In the living room there were two rotastak cages with hamsters inside for Jess and I! We were so ridiculously excited but had to tone down our squeals so not to terrify the hamsters.

So that was when Minty and Fudgie were brought into our lives. My hamster Minty lived for 3 years and had a fantastic Rotastak cage. It was such a pain to clean out so most thanks go to my parents for helping with this not-so-fun part of having a pet!

I would love to know your most memorable Christmas presents! Do share.
