So I went shopping today and was in the hardware store looking for other things when I found these awesome rechargeable spotlight torches, 2,000,000 candle power. I figured my brother would love one, if only to fool around with. I already had planned a present for him but this was perfect.
I bought it ($10 super clearance special cause they don't stock them anymore), brought it home and figured that I should give it to him fully charged, so I plugged it in. Then I tested it.

Problem.

I want it.

Damn.

They've probably sold out.

Damn.

I could get him the original planned present.
What to do, what to do...

Just keep it. lol He'll never know unless you tell him, and besides, next time he comes over you can let him play with it at your house.

3 days to go!

Cards posted to nearest and dearest today.
Presents wrapped for husband yesterday (we opened ours this morning, the first of three family Christmasses we're involved in); for my mother and his relatives this evening; for the rest of my family on Christmas day I expect.
The whole dinner thang requires another thread - suffice to say that this year I'm managing to do the turkey backwards ( ) i.e. soup earlier this week, cold turkey on Boxing Day and hot roas turkey on 28th December.

Yehaaa! Only two sleeps to go!

And guess what? I've made a brilliant start on the babys room during the break too. I'll post pics of that somewhere else soon.

1 DAY TO GO!!!!

It's so exciting! My ham is in the oven baking with it's coating of cloves and red currant jelly. Mmmmmmm...Smells delicious! I will stuff my turkey next in readiness for tomorrow morning. The gifts are all under the tree and soon the mad house cleaning will begin.

Oh I do love a merry Christmas!

One left to get and I found where it is. I will attack this last task with all the excitement I can muster. Then its on to bake cookies, finish wrapping, clean the house and whatever else I forgot to do before heading into the glory that is Christmas.
I have kept my budget and hope the offspring understand. (nervous)
