What would you like for Christmas?

    It's just over ten weeks away. Have you started dropping hints yet? Or don't you expect anything?

    I'm not one for dropping hints, I'd rather aim high and be direct. So I'd like a nice shiny Kindle please. I've wanted one for ages, hemmed and hawed for good measure and now I know it's the gadget for me.

    I'll probably end up buying one myself as I think you can only buy them from Amazon. Plus I'll get it from the dot com site as they're cheaper. For some reason they cost around $170 in the UK, yet they're $140 in the US.

    Anyway - what would you like for Christmas. And you can't say 'all my family' because hopefully that's a given smile

    Hi Froggy - this is my first Christmas on HP and since writing all my hubs involves a lot of virtual shopping, my Christmas list is the biggest it has ever been this year. My dream list would include a tablet PC but that's not realistic for our budget so I would make do with some retro sweets - http://www.aquarterof.co.uk/1980s-decad … 51104.html

    Funny how eating Spacey Gracey's sweets/candy will part most folks from their two front teeth smile

    No retro candy for me ... I have enough trouble with my teeth.

    @ Diane ... I know, I was jesting smile And a laptop is a great idea. I would like an one that's English by default, instead of Portuguese. Funny but my Portugeuse OH speaks to me in English, whilst the laptop clings to it's Latin based lingo neutral

    @ PD - I wouldn't worry half so much about the footprints on the carpet as I would about the ones on the sheep. Do they look disturbed after he's been? hmm

    @ Sofs - a lovely sentiment and I completely agree. One of my favorite things is the giving and the smiles smile

    This year for Christmas my kids and I are working on a charity thing. We are having a bake sale to earn money to buy gifts to fill shoe boxes for kids in other countries. As for what I selfishly want for myself, fuzzy slippers, some Uggs, books, and an Ice Cream machine. What I am already going to get tho...makes me so happy I honestly dont want a single other gift.

    Oh, and Im not for hinting either, Ive had this list for years and say it very clearly when asked what I want.

    I haven’t really thought about Christmas yet, my birthday is the day before so I have two decisions to make before then. My wife is expecting our first child, due in 3 weeks, and to be honest I can’t see past that.

    It does mean Santa will begin visiting our home again, yay!

    SWOH - I simply can't fault your Christmas wish. I adore hoovers to the point I hoover for no point. I obsess about them when I need a knew one. I'm a real hoover connoisseur. Goodness only knows why but if someone bought me the latest cylinder Bissel I'd be in clover.

    Just bought a new one three weeks ago. Took me weeks of browsing different models before I chose one. I'm forever dragging it round behind me. In fact - it's a better pet than our broken dog smile

    Which brings me to Daniel - I hope you get your bed. As for fixing up Boo, she is committed to random acts of stupidness. She managed to kill a plastic sack earlier. I was mortified. Mind you, when she realized that she'd just slaughtered a big bag of air, so was she hmm

        Boo is so wonderfully neurotic that I keep thinking of making a site, to share her stupidity with the world. As an example, she is a very committed air burier of her possessions.

        She absolutely does not trust me to not chew her bones, play with her toys or leave her frisbee alone. Her new favorite place is beneath our bed. She spends many a half hour tunneling down to Oz - then eyeing me suspiciously. The minute I move, she's goes and 'digs' up the supposedly hidden item, then starts all over again.

        And then there's her dead balls ...

        Her real name is Boo Radley. Suits her. And for the record - she also has a very difficult relation with our hoover. They hate each other lol

      camloposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I hate hoovering at home, but I like doing it at work. When I'm feeling a bit lazy, and everyone else is busy and it seems there's nothing for me to do, I just get out the hoover and look busy.

      Another good way of looking busy is by holding some kind of cleaning cloth - you don't have to actually do anything with it, but you'll look busy.
