Mostly done

christmas

I am not the shopping type.  I don’t like wandering through malls, looking for something that I hope someone would like.  I’d rather spend a lot of money buying a gift as long as I know it is what the person wants.  Well, that’s obviously when I have more than 2 cents to spend!

Today I bought Tommie a proper gift.  Meaning he is not getting a tie, t-shirt or socks lol  Oh and not aftershave either. 

Now I can only live in hope that I’ll get an external flash proper gift too.  Oh and don’t worry.  I will make sure he knows that is what I want.  🙂

  3. I’m the same! I spent R1400 of my hard earned blogging money on an awesome 1TB external hard drive (knowing he’ll love it) and it’s the first real gift I’ve been able to give him (with money I’ve earned – and not been given by him). I asked him to help me get some portable home photographic studio equipment (off Amazon for $175) which costs about R9000 here – and he was like, “Why do you wnat that, that’s ridiculous, what are you going to do with it.???” I was like, “okay, shove it up your ass, but don’t show up wit perfume or bubble bath or a bloody gift voucher. This is your opportunity to help me get a gift that I really want. I’m not even asking you to buy the whole thing, just contribute. I don’t have to give you a bloody 10 page project motivation for why I want it. It should be enough for you to know that it’s something I’d like.”

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure I’m not going to get it! Which is a bummer, because his cousin is in the US for Christmas, and would happily bring it in for us (diplomat – so no import costs either).

    Boo.
