That should help the <ahem> Spirit of Christmas along nicely

Also available in whiskey grin

oooh I want one
Can we have a Mumnet christmas draw for one? won't all the compartments with be empty when MNHQ send it out.

PacificDogwod Sun 08-Nov-15 14:28:54


Yes, of they'll gorge themselves no ALL the wee doors in one day and then have nothing left for the rest of the time like the DCs do with their chocolate calendars

The price is steep, but hey ho, MNHQ have all that advertising revenue to play with, don't they? wink

Oh that's brilliant. grin I don't have a couple of hundred quid spare though.

PacificDogwod Sun 08-Nov-15 14:33:54

No, nor do I, Owl, and I have several relatives and friends who would like that kind of thing.
I am now wondering whether to buy hundreds some tiny jam jars and decant gin in them, add number stickers and hey presto!! Fantabulous pre-Christmas gift for me

FattyNinjaOwl Sun 08-Nov-15 15:02:10

Stop giving me ideas! grin

FattyNinjaOwl Sun 08-Nov-15 15:02:54

Actually I know someone who has bought 24 bottles of booze, all different and put a numbered post-it on each one grin

PacificDogwod Sun 08-Nov-15 15:04:28

That is genius! grin
Dangerous, but inspired <hic>

I thought that too. I can't do that. I've lost my ability to drink alcohol. Stupid me. Since when was it a good idea to get pregnant? I've not been able to handle my booze since DS2 was born 14 weeks ago.

PacificDogwod Sun 08-Nov-15 15:09:24


Well, I hate to tell you, my DS4 is now 5 years old and still cannot hold my booze blush. So, I don't even try - makes for a cheap night out, mind.

FattyNinjaOwl Sun 08-Nov-15 15:12:27

Oh don't tell me that! I'm only 24, I thought I'd have a few good years of drinking in me yet grin

Get to my age, PD & you'll find that the capability returns.

A lovely idea - but for that money I could have at least 3 times the gin - in bottles, not pissy wee measures! It might just last me advent as well!

Why are you shocked, Becca??

BeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 09-Nov-15 17:26:05

We need one of those advent calenders. Do you think they're acceptable every month of the year?

magimedi Mon 09-Nov-15 19:14:54

Every single day of the year - would be rude not to have one.

Becca, surely every MNHQStaffer needs one? You'll get a discount for en gros orders, I'm sure grin <enables>
