    What do you REALLY want for Christmas...........

    Right, let's cut to the chase.

    What do you REALLY want for Christmas!

    Let's ditch the classic World Peace, an end to starvation, disease, poverty etc. We'll take that as read.

    Let's be really selfish and channel our inner child...........

    What do you REALLY want........

    Oh, and a yellow card for the first to say cruising - that fits with an end to disease.......

    I would like to be with both our sons, daughters in law and all four grandchildren. That would be the best present I could have but I know it can't happen. I really don't want any more 'stuff', although I have a suspicion that I will receive a new knitting bag since last time we were at the cottage with family daughter in law commented that there were better things to hold knitting than a reusable grocery bag. I would appreciate having my car cleaned inside and out though, maybe one of the grandkids would consider that.

      Nearly a yellow card there Sheila - family would have come under eliminating disease...

      Saved yourself with a right good valet of your car by the grandchildren.

      Well done.

        A music system that really works, so I can just tell HER to play any song that pops into my head. To be fair OH is working on that at the moment, I'm just impatient.
        The new Val McDermid, can't bear to pay hardback prices.
        POTUS to finally concede.
        Not so much really as you've knocked all of the righteous ones out of the window

          Sometimes I get confused between Canadian and English. I couldn't remember which was valeting and which was detailing. Now I know. Thanks

            Nothing I really need, well not within the gift price range.😉

            We don’t buy one another individual presents, the kids always ask me what I want, my normal response is vouchers, either M&S or Amazon.

            My real enjoyment at Christmas is seeing the Kids and Grandchildren opening their presents.

            The great thing about this Christmas is not being dragged around the shops waiting for my wife to decide what to buy, everyday we seem to get another package delivered, my wife has done all the Christmas present shopping on line.👍😎

              Hubby and I just said we won't buy for each other this year, as we don't really need anything, and I had a big birthday not long ago and was spoilt rotten. Having said that, I will be disappointed if I get nothing.

              I'd like one of the oversized large clocks for my wall, and I'm always grateful for any jewellry, oooh and I'd like a new blanky, really fluffy and cosy! ...............................................Car ol

                      I want to spend Christmas with the family so we can see our grandson opening his gifts. He still won’t understand what’s going on, but he will enjoy the tree and the lights. It will be so cute to see him taking it all in. I’m with Barb on wanting DT to concede with or without dignity since he clearly has none. Gift-wise I would like some of my Oscar de la Renta perfume and I have a beautiful print of Venice by Bob Richardson that I would like to get framed. We had given it to my mum years ago and when she passed away I brought it back with me (unframed). Yes, it reminds us of a place visited by a currently unavailable mode of transport, but it is gorgeous and I love it. I just wish other members of my family would let me know what they would like as I really need to get stuff online as going tot the shops won’t really be feasible, more’s the pity.

                      Take care and stay well. Helen

                        I’ll take another and raise it to red, 'cos that’s all I want.

                          I would like another new lap top. I bought myself a new one 3 months ago because my old one was knackered. The trouble is that this one doesn't have as good a spec as the old one. My OH and and my son thought it would be adequate for my needs but I don't think it is.

                            It can get women into trouble too!

                            I once worked with a man who told his wife and children to get him a token present, as he already had everything he wanted.

                            His wife bought him a plastic ruler.

                            I never heard the last of it... and I wasn't even the one married to him!!!!

                              Yes.

                              The only way I can sign in is to click the 'remember me' box.

                              Also, no emojis! I'm worried about that, as it may lead to people thinking I am serious when I'm just joking and not wishing to offend! (oh well face; sorry face; smiley face!!!)
