I do enjoy the act of buying gifts for people, but I am finding it more and more difficult these days, as most of us have so much and if we want something during the year we tend to get it, so come Christmas there is nothing left to get. I hate getting a gift for someone just for the sake of giving a gift. I like to thing the gift will be something they want or will like at least. If I really can't think of something I will give vouchers or money which I hate, but at least the recipient can choose then.
This post makes it sounds like Mick just sits back and lets it all happen around him, well .... he does "laughs" he just doesn't do hussle, bussle times. We do joke in the house and the girls go round singing "here comes Mr Humbug, here comes Mr Scrooge" from the Muppets Christmas Carol film (one of Mick's favourites) lol BUT having said all of that if I asked Mick to get something or do something he does it for me and more importantly I don't think I would have it any other way - though I am open to offers!!
A time for sharing, chocs that Mick's mum & dad gave us yesterday. A tub of Celebrations.
