It would be very wrong, wouldn’t it, to wrap a present given to you by a PR and pass it off as a gift you have lovingly selected yourself.
What sort of person would stoop to that level?
In my defence, the gift did arrive on Christmas Eve, which is never the right time to start handing out Christmas presents.
Also relevant, I've decided, is the fact that Santa’s presents have proved popular again this year and I never get any credit for them.
The digital camera has turned out to be one of IJ’s favourite presents, and if it gets her hooked on photography like her mother then I’m pretty cool with that.
It was kindly sent to us by the team at Railcard who are currently running a Little Clicks for Big Prizes competition on Facebook. Entrants stand the chance of winning a Merlin Annual Pass worth over £450, simply by sending uploading a photo and turning into a postcard using their postcard generator. There are also 20 Railcard gift card for the runners up.
Further details are available on their Facebook page and you have until 9th January to enter.
