I had an ace Christmas. I spent it at my girlfriends parents house in San Francisco. 

Even though I was so far away from home Father Christmas still managed to find me. 

He brought me The Audacity Of Hope by Barrack Obama and a Tea Cosy.

When I unwrapped the Tea Cosy at first I thought it was a wooly novelty hat.I think I even said thank you for the Hat. 

Being very British and therefore incredibly polite, even though I would have looked ridiculous in it.I had every intention of wearing the "hat" all day and acting as if I thought I looked great in it. 

Then as I started to take it out of the wrapping I noticed that it had a hole in one side. Instead of noticing the tea cup though and realising what it was I thought to myself

 "Is this a balaclava? are they taking the piss?" 

Once I found the other hole and eventually worked out what I was holding. I gave a very loud sigh of relief. 

I was very grateful for a tea cosy as I drink a lot of tea. As the relief from not having to wear it in public streamed across my face though. I must have looked insane with gratitude.

Dyans Parents must now think that I really really like tea cosys

I wouldnt write it off as a fashion statement just yet. You look simply dashing in it.

Happy new year Eddie :)

Be your next Christmas in sunny California or in the chilly UK, there is sure to be a hat 'neath the tree.
