So guys what presents have you bought the people in your life so far?
KOL for my Mum (yes, she's one of those who effectively ruined Kings of Leon by loving the shit music they bring out)
Specials for my Dad.
Me and my mates don't really do presents, we just go out a lot and get drunk in festive fashion.
However It's my mates 18th birthday next week and I can't attend, so I'll get him a record or something & take it to his on NYE.
First Christmas single in a while, good job really as I'm skint.
I don't hang with 18 year-olds, honest
restaurant vouchers for the rents,
books for everyone else.
Dad - boardwalk empire s1 blu ray
stepmum - fancy mascara
