5 Things: Shopping for me.

We have had a few extra travels this year and filled the house with a few new bits of furniture so Mr H and I have agreed that we are not really doing Christmas presents for each other.

Instead we have a $50 limit to buy each other something, anything. Nothing amazing, just a token something. Or something for a laugh. Whatever.

It is proving very difficult for him.

Firstly, because when he goes shopping the first place he goes is to the bike shop, followed closely by the golf shop. He just can not find anything to buy for me. Just lots and lots for himself.

He has walked around the shops for hours and is still empty handed - well actually, it is me who will be empty handed come Christmas morning.

There have also been whispers that I might be one of those people that is difficult to buy for, no way. I don't want to be one of those people.

If you need to buy a little something this Christmas (for me) here you go Mr H.

A book. Everyone needs something more to read. You can't be re-reading old books, life is too short and you don't have the time, there are too many books to read.

Right now, I need this book because it is my next book club read.

What do I break, lose, scratch and never have enough of every summer?

I have given up having pricey specs, but I always need some new ones. I don't even care what they look like, as long as they are in the car when I need them (three pairs would be useful).

Can never have enough of....ELK.

Anything at all, I will wear it.

A groovy hairbrush (that I don't have to share with the girls and never goes missing from the bathroom).

An extra charger for my phone so that I never miss all your important calls again.

See! It is super easy to buy me a little gift.

Otherwise you could always make me something - like dinner for a whole month?


  1. Aww I can't wait until I have to give my kids ideas this way - lovely selection. Although I'm fussy with sunnies so couldn't allow my kids to pick some!

  2. My kids are each getting me a book this year. It will be a surprise for my husband and for them too. ;) x

  3. Where did my comment go? Maybe it's up for approval? Anyhoo I said I choose dinner for a month ....PLEASE. That would be so great. :)

    1. Comments just seem to run off these days Caz, thinks for letting me know.


Commenting brings amazing luck, you must try it and see how you go!
