Im dying to know what ive got, me and OH limit each other to £50 each as a general rule, ive got him just loads of little bits really since everything he wanted was expensive, but ive been having a nose at my stuff and unless everythings from poundshop or somehing im sure hes gone over budget.. Im worse than the kids can tell i hardly ever get out for myself on a regular basis.

My mum asked a few weeks ago and i said i want money, shes put me 50 in a card and still got a bag of presents i cant believe how much ive got this year.

MIL/FIL arent getting me and OH anything as they payed for a new stairs carpet last month, last few years ive been showered with gifts from them

I have no idea. DH told me not to study the credit card statement too closely. I saw a payment to AlexanderMcQueen.com.

It is my 40th in mid January too.

I don't know what I'm getting. DH is usually quite extravagant. I'm hoping it is not exercise related - last year I got a cross trainer in a not very subtle attempt by him to get me to exercise.

I have no idea, and its the first time I havent even hinted at what i'd like.

DP, has, however, told me its the most thought he's ever put into anything ever, ever which un-nerves me slightly is great.

Dh got me a camera in the Amazon lightning deals that I wanted needed since mine broke.

He's just been up and wrapped my gifts and there's about 6 gifts under the tree that I have no idea about.

Shopping in the post Christmas sales for prezzie. The presents I have opened are lovely, so I am very happy, too!

Some lovely earrings from DH that he chose himself. PIL gave me a magimix. It appears that I am now middle aged as this has pleased me hugely. Off to fiddle with all the attachments! grin
Merry Christmas one and all.

a Google nexus 7 tablet from dh I'm thrilled grin grin

DH is away until January 19th so we are doing presents when he gets back. I did send him some jokey stuff though.

DS1(19) &DS2(17) have bought me Robbie Williams tickets, his album and a peacock Pandora charm. It made me cry. They only have weekend jobs, so must have saved for ages.

I bought myself a dishwasher. I LOVE IT.

I've had it about a month now but it is my Christmas present to myself (lone parent), it's one of the best things I've ever owned and saves me sooo much work and gives me a little bit of time back.

Exmil bought me a watch - it's lovely and very unexpected.
