Went to buy some charity christmas cards yesterday until I discovered that they were €8 for 5 cards!!!!
I know in theory it´s for charity but by the time I´ve bought 20 plus 20 stamps at 70 cents each it´s a bit beyond my purse.

Cooper Report 6 Nov 2012 19:18

Quick everyone. There is a certain Irish cream yummy drink on offer fro £11 at a certain supermarket where i live. If its on offer in one the others will follow :0)

I got a bottle for my Aunt for Christmas. The first pressie I have bought so far. Well its not exactly the first. I sent my eldest off with Christmas in her suitcases in October. She is working on a cruise liner and will be away for six months. Celebrating Christmas day in the Caribbean lucky thing. :0)

SLAPS RON do you have to remind us

GinN Report 6 Nov 2012 19:09

I say every year....."I will ignore Christmas as long as possible, until panic sets in. I will not buy tons of unnecessary food. Everybody will just be given money, even the grandkids. I will DEFINITELY cut down the Christmas card list.
And what have I done today? Bought a dozen presents, a Christmas pudding and assorted nibbles, and 6 packs of cards.

I fall for it every year!

thats is so nice of you, hope its a wonderful day for you


wisechild Report 3 Nov 2012 07:20

A new Brit couple have just moved to Menorca, so I have invited them for Christmas lunch, knowing that things are not the same here & she won´t have had time to suss out where she can get what she wants, or work out what she can have as a substitute because what she wants isn´t available (eg Xmas pud&cake, mincemeat, suet etc, etc).
Don´t think she actually believes that these things aren´t available. She´ll soon find out.
Have just realised what I have let myself in for, but we Brits have to stick together.


StrayKitten Report 3 Nov 2012 07:05

wont be long now, but why cant i stop buying? i was done agesssss ago but still i order new stuff lololol
