Breakfast and my Christmas pressies

Breakfast this morning was fruit from the local farmers market. Strawberries, raspberries, nectarines, apricots and cherries, with yogurt. Yum, yum, yum. While I was eating I was reading the book that my youngest gave me for christmas. Nation by Terry Pratchett. I am a big Disc World fan and was unsure about this new one. It is set on a Pacific island after a big wave has crushed it. Sounds a bit dire. It wasn't, it was brilliant, I would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Terry Pratchett for another excellent read. And since I was on the subect of christmas pressies, here is another couple.
Cute earrings from Peter. He also gave me a nice necklace, which I am afraid is a bit to short, it fits ok, but is really really uncomfortable. Not sure what to do about that.
With my christmas money I bought this Silk Tree in a sale. It is not giving much shade yet but it will in a few years.

The earrings are beautiful.
I always need extensions on my necklaces (I have a fat neck)!
Over here, the cheap jewellery shops like Diva sell them for about $3 each - its really just some extra chain and another clasp that attached to the end.

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunatly, I think the necklace is meant to be tight around your neck and it does not have a normal fastening. I just find it an uncomfortable feeling to have soething tight around my neck.
