what would you like to find under the tree for you?

Im hoping for a chunky/heavy bracelet i can use as a charm bracelet. My aunty has a gold one i was always fascinated by when i was a little girl, and i'd like to start one off myself, as maybe something to fascinate future little relatives smile

A slimmer waist.

But on this planet, a nice post pregnancy outfit and a massage voucher.

A male brindle greyhound. Sigh. Dream on, Flies.

ToothlesstheDragon Wed 21-Sep-11 22:16:03

A big fat voucher for fat face! That's if I haven't cleared out the store before hand.

Loving their stuff at the moment. grin

A working kenwood chef. I asked for one as a present from all of my family (have seen a great offer) but they've said no. So, instead, they will collectively spend the same amount of money on other lovely, useless stuff!

A plain silver bangle and some nice soft PJ's please.

What I would really like is a Fossil bag, but I know Santa isnt feeling too generous this year.

DH. By Christmas day he will have been in Afghanistan for two months, so I imagine I'll be missing him a bit.

But, failing that, some tiny but expensive diamond studs would be lovely.

My DH will be somewhere hot and sandy with the Navy over Christmas, so we booked a weekend break to Poland as a joint Christmas present for before he left, except out childcare has fallen through and I'm desperately trying to rearrange <cries>

Father Christmas, if you're reading this, please let FIL's operation date move left or right! I've been really, really good this year!

ToothlesstheDragon Thu 22-Sep-11 11:58:05

ooh cryhavoc, hope you do get your dh back for xmas (wrapping paper optional) and i'll keep my fingers crossed for childcare for you redumbdancy. Where abouts in poland are you visiting?

gapants Thu 22-Sep-11 12:05:18

Some hand crafted slightly wonky slim silver bangles that I have to force on and can then never get off. In my head they are lovely, I have never seen what i want.

In reality, just kisses under the mistletoe. we are brassic and what we do have will go on the children we have/know.

DedalusDigglesPocketWatch Thu 22-Sep-11 12:45:09

A landrover discovery and an equitrek horse trailer, I really have been good, and I don't want anything else ever again.

But, failing that a nice day, perhaps some snow and enough chocolate to trough through whilst watching all the Christmas telly.

ToriaPumpkinPasty Thu 22-Sep-11 13:41:41

Not much this year as I'll have a roughly eight week old baby by then and asking for more than their safe arrival seems a bit greedy, in fact the only thing I can think of is a Hot Diamonds pendant that I had my eye on at work before we were closed down and they took it back. So Santa, if you're listening, that'll do nicely.

ChooChooWowWow Thu 22-Sep-11 14:09:40

In my dreams, several large diamonds.

In reality:
A new cover with light for my kindle
A new dressing gown in cream or pale pink to match my newly decorated bedroom.
A new pair of tweezerman tweezers because mine have disappeared and my eyebrows now resemble those of a yeti.

I stuck a picture of a watch I love on our fridge back in February so dh had better come up with the goods on Christmas morning grin

worldgonecrazy Thu 22-Sep-11 14:19:23

Dream: voucher for a spa weekend

Reality: zilch, though we do normally have a nice meal out. I can't think of anything material that I actually want.

Redumbdancy Thu 22-Sep-11 19:21:20

Toothless - hopefully off to Krakow!

ToothlesstheDragon Thu 22-Sep-11 20:46:14

ah smile my parents go to krakow quite a bit. quite jealous, its supposed to be beautiful. If you like amber jewellery they have some beautiful shops over there as well ;) always get my parents to pick me up some amber when they visit.

You'll get there! Enjoy
