I would love some nice jewellery, the handbag of my dreams (this is the non existant handbag - cannot find what I want that ticks all the right boxes),  tupperware, mini cut crystal vase,  spa treatments, a good night's sleep and a good sleep in, make up.

DH has asked me if I want an iPad. I don't know - do I? I have an iPhone already - aside from the screen size difference is there any other benefit for an iPad?

New floor coverings for downstairs.
We've got patchy vinyl over bare concrete and DD has really done a number on it. It desperately needs replacing with anything! At the moment I'm covering the worst of the holes with rugs but it's a PITA to clean them with all the different pile structures they have.

I don't have anyone to by me anything expensive so my Christmas wants a fairly simple.
Some brooches, there's a few books I want

I'll buy myself something for Christmas but not sure what yet?!

Cheese. I miss cheese. And fresh milk. Yoghurt. Ice cream. Any dairy really.

But I'd settle for an outdoor setting....(which I now know I will be getting, cause I went and bought it today.... wwhistle.gif)

Posted 12 November 2012 - 05:22 PM

Honestly, I'd just like something that showed a bit of thought. Every year I buy for my parent, step-parent, siblings and their partners, and I get a single "family" present in return. My 20-somthing siblings are apparently incapable of putting any thought into giving something to me at all...

Otherwise, I'd like a little money to put towards an ipad mini, maybe a pandora charm or two, and jamie's 15 minute meals...

#20 mini mac

Posted 12 November 2012 - 05:25 PM

Ugg boots (I know I know, its summer!)

A dyson (and a cleaner to use it!)

A chauffeured limo to drive us around to all the families on Xmas day so we can rest in between each house! biggrin.gif

#21 LittleListen

Posted 12 November 2012 - 05:30 PM

The jewellery I asked DH for for my birthday that "didn't arrive in time" (sure Tounge1.gif)

Someone else to have packed up our house and cleaned it for sale!

A pg to announce on Christmas day (fat chance!)

And a decent night's sleep

#24 Three Of Hearts

Posted 12 November 2012 - 06:00 PM

A roomba
IPhone 5
Electric kitchen scales, a new chopping board and cookbook stand

I'm sure there is more but that's all I can think of for now!

I had a large diamond ring on my wish list last year which I received  wub.gif So I'd better leave jewelry off the list for at least another year now  wink.gif  although some diamond earrings would be nice  tongue.gif
