All I want for Christmas is...

So, only a couple more days. to go! What are you hoping Father Christmas/Santa will bring you? What would you like to receive to make your Christmas really special?

For me the thing I am actually looking forward to most of all is to see friends and family at home that I miss a lot.

It will tone your arms wonderfully, lol. Get better soon.

If you really do need a wheel-chair, get in touch with the local Red Cross and they should be able to help.

Re: All I want for Christmas is...

Sure, peace and goodwill are fine, but what I am lusting for is more material:


I have been good, can afford it, but my level of skill makes it hard to justify

Just get it - and then take a class / join a group which will help you "see" things in a more skilled way, then it will justify itself.



As for me... I'd like hubby to pick out something for me on his own, rather than his mother getting it for him to give to me. It doesn't even matter what it is, a pair of socks, cheap earrings, a coffee mug and some coffee, whatever. Knowing he's gotten over whatever angst he feels about getting a "wrong" gift will be plenty.

That was a sad story. When he got out of that hospital they had attached his waist to his lower jaw.
