Advantages erm none!
Dear Santa,just this once could you please arrange for the following or items similair not to be put in my Christmas stocking. I know I sound ungrateful but come on give me a break just this once! I'm not asking for much just perhaps not some of the gifts I've received in the past!
I mean who on earth gives a newly slimmed down person big knickers? Or anyone for that matter! Bridget Jones' big knickers had nothing on the one's I received the Christmas after I'd lost nearly 3 stone. Ok so my Nan could be forgiven into thinking that I was in need of some new knickers!BUT you could have gone camping in these knickers! Honestly if you'd have got a guide rope and some pegs you'd have had the perfect tent.......
Now I love perfume, never will a gift of perfume be looked on as a stop gap pressie for me. I love perfume and my idea of heaven would be to be told whilst in Boots perfume department I could take the entire stock home.Why someone saw fit to buy me my very own bottle of Tweed the Christmas I was 25 I'm not too sure.I tried to smile as I opened it, I even tried to give it a quick sniff without my face contorting into a twisted knot of ungratefulness but I drew the line of actually spraying it!! That was beyond the pale.Obviously if I should ever get the go ahead to take the entire stock of Boots perfume department this one would be left behind......
My Nan unfortunately is going to get another mention here this wasn't a gift for me it was a gift for my brother when he was about 6 or so. That Christmas Nan must have really hated my Mum! Little Brother was given the ultimate in a parental nightmare present - a drum kit complete with a symbol! Now my Mum normally insured we played nicely with our toys but for some reason when this got battered and fell to bits after four six year olds held an impromptu jamming session not a cross word was uttered by my Mum. Sooooooooooo please Santa make sure Niamh hasn't got any thing of a musical/loud nature in her stocking!
Bottle shape pressies are always great to receive aren't they? especially if they look like they are going to contain some thing good! Now one year we had a "Secret Santa" at work ie everyone puts their name in a hat draws out a name and buys the person a pressie. One year I got a bottle shape pressie. It looked for all the world like a Champagne/Cava bottle, after a quick feel of the cork at the top throw the wrapping paper I really thought it was a bottle of fizz! On opening it I was greeted with a bottle of bubble bath labeled up like a bottle of Fizz complete with a cork! Worse still the actual bubble bath was vile!!!
Yes I'm going back to my Nan again the year I was 18 my Nan bless her thought I must have been putting away stuff for my bottom drawer! Well this can only explain the lovely gift of red nylon fitted sheets!!
Lots of loveJo1l
