And that is pretty much it!
pinkycheesy your kids presents look amazing and love the idea of mini individual 3 day breaks with them.
Calm down. Comment clearly says 'to me that is obscene' clearly it's not to you (or the OP)
I suspect posting on this thread could be deemed as 'inviting people to comment.'
My Xmas spirit is alive and well thank you, I hope you have a very, merry weekend.

is this too much???? i didnt go mad last year, and he wasnt interested in anything apart from the boxes anyway. But the way i think of it is, he has no concept of the value of money yet, so its ok to just get him something that he'll really like? hes a total domestic godess bless his heart so hes gunna be thrilled :D

We have a family game for everyone to share and they were getting onesies but they had those early as they were away to camp and the onesies were the cosiest pjs available.
They are getting a new TV for the playroom curtesy of my Mum and my Nectar points - rest of the family will send cheques/vouchers.
So, thoroughly spoiled but they are very good boys and we don't spend on them through the year other than Birthdays and a new book for good school reports etc.
I don't think I have paid full price for anything between using vouchers/quidco etc and I raised over £500 on ebay selling of things - mainly their old clothes/jackets/boots.
