The first gift from my true love that I chose to open was a reassuringly solid cuboid of a respectable size, wrapped enticingly in silver paper. On tearing the paper away I discovered a gift I will treasure; a DVD box set of the BBC series "Doctor Who" featuring all of the episodes of the tenth (official) incarnation of the Time Lord. Who is the actor who stars in this box set?
For my next gift I opt for the smallest package under the tree and discover a gift I suspect is as much for my true love as it is for me. It is a pair of tickets for a night out in London to see a revival of the phenomenally successful stage show, "Lord of the Dance". Which dancer, the co-creator of "Riverdance", is this self-styled Lord?
No doubting the selflessness of my next gift; tickets to a sporting match at Lord's in West London. My true love is not a fan of sport at all but she knows that I love it. What sport would we be watching at Lord's?
The fourth gift that I was allowed to unwrap was a giant framed photo of the time I got to meet the Prime Minister. The shot is of the two of us standing on the doorstep of 10 Downing Street shaking hands as if I was an important foreign visitor. The photo is so large that you can read the inscription on the letterbox on the front door. This inscription is of another of the titles held by the Prime Minister of the UK. What is it?
First Lord of the Treasury
First Lord of the Admiralty
Lord High Steward
Lord President of the Privy Council
As an avid stamp collector, it was a treat to receive from my true love a rare gift indeed; a 1995 commemorative set of US stamps of American comic strips. What's the connection to Lords-a-leaping I hear you ask? One of the stamps featured a character whose catchphrase was "leapin' lizards". Who?
Little Orphan Annie
My true love confused me with her next gift on the 10th day; a biography of Chairman Mao. When she saw me scratching my head, she pointed me to chapter ten which explains the link to the ten lords-a-leaping. This chapter relays the great social and economic reforms undertaken in China from 1958 to 1963. The chapter's title bears the name given to this five year plan: what was it?
The Ten Lords Plan
The Ten Flowers Campaign
The Great Leap Forward
The Giant Leap For Mankind
As a keen amateur cook my next gift was a treat: a fine piece of Wild Scottish Salmon, the famously leaping fish. Along with the fish was a recipe book including a Scandinavian specialty made with raw salmon cured in salt, sugar and dill. What is the name of this dish?
My true love doesn't share my tastes in music and thinks I need educating. So when she discovered one of her favourite artists was born on February 29, and is thereby a leapling, she leapt (sorry!) at the chance to add his "Best of" CD to my collection. Featuring hits such as "Between Me and You", "Mesmerize", and "I'm Real", the artist born as Jeffrey Atkins is better known by which stage name?
I always like to leave the largest presents until near the end. This one is a strange shape; with the wrapping paper still on I cannot tell what's inside. I ask my true love for a clue; "It's a sculpture by David Sykes of a group of animals who are collectively known as a 'leap'" she replies. I'm none the wiser. What animals is she referring to?
Saving the best till last, my final present is handed to me in a small envelope. What could it be? Plane tickets! My true love bought me plane tickets! Not cheap ones either - it's a very long haul from the UK. The highlight of the trip, amongst other delights, involves a visit to the World Heritage-listed Lord Howe Island, a volcanic tropical island 700 kilometres off the mainland shore of its mother country. Which country are we travelling to?
