‘Every gift which is given, even though is be small, is in reality great, if it is given with affection’ – Pindar
With the festive season fast approaching, it appears that I may actually be the girl who has everything because it has taken me a lifetime to come up with any kind of wish list , it’s just not the same without the back of an Argos catalog to flip through!
I have, however managed to come up with a few bits and bobs that I’ve asked Santa Claus (and a couple he’s delivered early due to the elves needing to know what exact size to make!)
Hybrid Hyde Mesh Panel Contrast Dress Oxblood available from ASOS or Lovarni
Karrimor 3 in 1 Waterproof Jacket Ladies from Sports Direct. This is the only other thing pre-bought, again for sizing reasons and and for mine and the hubby’s trip to Iceland in March. Considering the average temperature over there is about 1 degree Celsius, i figured i would need a good waterproof jacket to keep me warm and toasty on those glaciers!
Some other goodies i’m hoping might make their way into my stocking…
Estee Lauder – Pleasures perfume
Benefit Sugarbomb face powder
Black Faux Fur Collarless Jacket from New Look (which i now notice is sold out so her’s hoping Santa snapped one up!)
Present porn aside, i very much understand that probably the last thing Christmas is about is about what presents you get. I’ve attended a funeral over 3 of the 4 last Christmas periods and am humbly aware that there are people who aren’t even thinking about what goodies they might receive like i am, they’re dreading the thought of spending what should be such a happy time with someone missing.
So when i say i don’t want a lot for Christmas this year, I truly mean that, what i’m looking forward to most is some time off work, and spending the day eating and drinking with the people i love the most, because if I’ve learnt anything recently its that you have to cherish these family moments because you never know what’s lurking around the corner.
