I've asked for really boring stuff like pens and notebooks. I'm studying for an arts and humanities OU degree at the moment and making a lot of notes!
Thanks for reminding me. I am having one of these from my husband. In fact it arrived the other week, but is still in its box.I've been very boring, my request is a floor lamp so I can actually see to read when sat in my lounge chair. I'm hoping for a retro style of some kind.
I would buy a lamp anyway so, as I can't think of anything else I'd like, I might as well.
I'm like that! I just can't ask for big/expensive things! I love a useful present too, last year my family stocked me up on shower gel and I'm only just about to finish my stash upLooked at my list for Santa on the fridge on Friday after reading this thread. Had to laugh, I asked for a lemon zester ( one of those tiny graters), chocolate & trainer socks! Not exactly high maintenance am I?!
My sons say I'm difficult only putting little bits. I asked for a new mascara last year.
We used to buy more expensive stuff for each other but as I retired in September (though not of state or tech pension age yet) funds are a wee bit more limited this year.I'm like that!

We're having a 'hot and humid' holiday in Darwin. No one goes to Darwin around Christmas as the weather is unbearable - think very tropical 90% humidity, tropical mega storms and 35 C every day! Seriously though we are looking forward to doing all our sightseeing early in the morning then back to the hotel and swimming pool then watching with delight the most vibrant and severe tropical storms in the evening. I can't wait!!
