With Christmas less than two weeks away I'm busy - as I'm sure you are too - with all the preparations. So far I've decorated three Christmas trees - one outside my husband's shop, one in our lounge and one in the conservatory. Here's a picture of the one outside the shop.
I've also been buying and wrapping presents. With four daughters, nine grandchildren and a great-grandson you can imagine how many presents I've had to wrap! "What do you want for Christmas?" is a question I ask, and have been asked, constantly the last couple of weeks. Not that I 'buy to order' it's ideas I'm looking for. I know that it's the 'thought that counts' but I like to make sure that the presents I buy are things my family will like.
Which made me think of my own Christmas Wish List. My favourite presents are books and chocolate and I can guarantee on getting those every year. This year I also wanted a SatNav as I've just passed my test and and worry about getting lost. So, Dave, my husband, has bought me that. I've also said that I'd like something bright and easily recognisable to stick onto my car aerial so I can find it in the car park - I'm notorious for trying to get into the wrong car - so let's see if anyone comes up with that! Candles, pretty notebooks and pens are also things I like
And if money was no object a 'round the world' ticket for two would be brilliant!
What about you, what's on your Christmas Wish List?
