Default All I want for Christmas is....

.... Can you remember what it was you obsessed over when you were little?

Was there any Christmas in particular that you couldn't sleep because all you could think about was a special toy!

I can remember pushing a new Tiny Tears in a pram all day when I was about 6 I think.

Other faves were... Sindy dolls (and Pippa) -- Operation and Buckaroo!


What did you get and what did you get excited about?

All i wanted for Christmas was my mother to be happy (seriously).

And she was.

The presents were nice though.

I think my best present was a snooker table. I unwrapped all my prezzies, and she gave me the final one (it was a set of snooker balls)... i was totally baffled... she told me to go into the dining room for christmas breakfast........... and there it was, my snooker table.

Brings a tear to my eye (she didnt have much money at all)

Dylan...... oh i wish it could be Christmas every dayyyyyyyyyyyyyy a hay.

Gotta go now Bridge, my wife has a new haircut, and i must take her out for a meal.

So was it ...

a) a great haircut and you're going to celebrate
b) a lousy haircut and you're taking her out to try to cheer her up
c) a hilarious haircut and you want everyone else to see
d) her first haircut for 25 years and you want to mark the occasion
e) a really expensive haircut and you want to do your own damage on the credit card in retaliation
f) none of the above - just fancy a meal out.

Every year from 1967 to the present day I ask for the same things Action Man and a football or anything to with Blackpool FC, and I still get socks and aftershave (I don't wear aftershave)

Must admit she looks great... the truth is

a) Our son is staying at his grandparents
b) It cost a fortune, so i want everyone to see it (better not let her read this... but i am sure it wont look the same in the morning)
c) She wants another baby (well she is trying and i am enjoying)
d) And she has had at least a bottle of wine
e) so what the hell am i doing coming home and checking my e-mails and looking at britishexpats.com

Speak in about an hour guys... when she has gone to sleep.

Xmas is about goodwill & peace on earth to all men. Obviously all men as the women end up doing all the shopping, wrapping, cooking, washing up etc.
