Of course I haven't.
He is so upset at high prices that he decided to celebrate Christmas on 25th January. That way he can buy all the present cheap in the sales.
Anyway, it's the thought that counts so tightfistedness has nothing to do with it.
and my 18th!
so if it's christmas too...
im waiting till around the 18th :D
But luckily I don't have much to buy this year, hoorah!
i have some ideas.
although i guess i kinda was. someone just asked me on facebook. i've only got a small part time job at the moment! and all my moneys saved for the move in a few weeks.
this sentence just made me want to die
So I'm under no obligation to buy anything snazzy or pricey or amazing this year. Or anything at all.
I think I'll start a week in advance of christmas this year - as opposed to christmas eve like usual.
yeah i got you some shower gel and that's about it
reeece is getting dumped
I got a book about Australia for my brother, who is moving there. And a few things for my gf. And I have a plan for my parents.
That makes it sound like you're going to bury them under the patio.
and I've got some more ideas.
I'll get some things for my family later on, probably in the week leading up to Christmas :S
Copy and paste from year to year
Late November - Buy all Christmas presents when I get paid at the beginning of December
24th December -Bugger
it's HECTIC. People rushing about franticly, barging past everyone and knocing things over. I worked in a handbag shop last Christmas Eve and it was the busiest day of the year. Mostly old men hunting for a gift for their wives. They'd buy anything you told them to, they were that desperate.
The rest I will be ordering next week
Internet shopping = cheaper and easier, but you have to buy it earlier to make sure it gets here in time
if you live far away from where you're spending christmas, get it delivered there to save you having to carry it.
shopping for young nephews is easy and fun!
I'll probably do mine in the week before christmas, same as every year.
*wails in tormented anguish*
if you pick it, it wont heal
it's 'daaawnt pic iet! or it'll nevaaaar 'eal!'
earlier this year and I don't have any friends so I don't have to do any. There's an upside to everything.
i thought you were just going to take it back next time you came to visit
Although I don't know when the next time I can get down there will be.
so you'll always have strength. That and some maverick bars.
i hate you
its ina a box reay to give back when he comes down, arseclart!
i ahte everyone
I thought you had that fixed! Oh sophia...
but i can use reeces now, pm me your address and you shall recieve a christmas parcel :D
ps. my mixtape will suck compared to yours! you know too much :(
it will just contain different/exciting/interesting stuff, right? RIGHT! :)
(and that ionoy a small, temp part time one anyway)
I'm going to wait until December 22nd and then barge my way up and down Oxford Street until I want to kill everyone, before giving up and going to the pub.
People look aghast when I reply with this answer. People can go fuck themselves.
could send me is a picture of your British Garden Birds Calendar. x
I've bought some material and various other bit and bobs, such as buttons, zips and stuffing. But yet to actually create the things.
but only because i can't afford it all on one creditcard bill
I found a watch for Mr S...what do we all think?
I think I might like it more than he will, but that's what I always do wth presents so...
disorganisation is the bane of my life!
I just bought:
for my dad. In a charity shop for £1.
(I also bought a tamagotchi rip off called 'Tom-I Gotcha')
i felt a bit odd buying a knife sharpener for my mum, but that's honestly what she asked me for.
was telling me she's even wrapped all her presents. And some woman on the bus was saying to her friend that she gave her mum her Christmas present and her mum already opened it.
I have one present to buy this year, so it should take about 30 seconds.
I have my best friend some dvds and I know what Im getting my brother. I also have a diary put away in work for my mum. I'm not usually this orgainized.
but I only have to buy three presents anyway, mum dad sister. I'll probably do it all in Waterstones or Fopp on Christmas Eve, same as usual. Easy!
