PSYCHOcatholic

What did you get for Christmas?

Recommended Posts

So far so good....my kid's presents all worked straight out of the box, which, considering they were 3 seperate PCs (one laptop and 2 games enabled PCs) all wirelessed up and now (along with my one) all connected to the internet and all working fine (I was dreading having to spend all day screaming at a dumb computer and my kids)is a minor miracle.... :)

Love and merry Xmas to all :thumbsup:

Nearly 8pm here Christmas night, so the day is all but over!

I got a lot this year :D I'm a spoilt girl. Some of the best things were a David Bowie dvd (from Bella!), That 70's Show Season One, The Simpsons Season One, YSL Babydoll perfume, a KISS 2006 Calendar, alcohol, clothes and money. Oh and shoes and a handbag, a manicure set and some makeup. That's all I can think of right now :D :D

I got my new phone, and spent a lot of the day trying to work out how to use it, as well as clothes etc.

It's 10:30pm here, so I'll probably be heading to bed soon, coz I have to work the boxing day sale tomorrow.

It´s 10.30 here and we had half of our presents yesterday... today we´re going to spend the days with my hubby´s family, so there´s maybe more... :grin: We had tons of things: clothes (pulls, gloves, shirts, skirts, scarfs. etc) and body milk, hand milk, lotions, parfume, incense, a Beatles Calendar, books, sunglasses, a bag, another bag, a trip to the place we choose and many many other things I can´t remember. We came home with three big bags full of things...

My older sister asked me what I wanted for Christmas, so I mentioned Cat Stevens. (The fellow now known as Yusuf Islam) When I unwrapped a bulky package this was revealed:

"The Very Best of Classical" (a 5-CD set featuring The Appolonia Symphony Orchestra. Whozat?)

"Holiday Collection" (a 10-CD set featuring The Holly Tree or The Misteltoe Players. WHO?)

These are produced in Canada and sold at discount stores for $7.49 each. It's nice elevator music, overall, though the "Holiday Collection" features CDs by Perry Como and Bing Crosby. (Perfect for "The Greatest Generation.) I could return these sets, but I could take them up to the local Long Term Care facility where there are members of "The Greatest Generation." I've been dropping off music of the 1940's when I find it at the local indie comic book/used music store, which is preferable to corporate radio/top 40 junk.

For the record, my sister got a Tuck & Patty music CD for Christmas, and "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" CD for her December 24th birthday. These holiday surprizes match the "stormy weather+Classical music CDs" from last year. (There was a Blues music CD also, but I prefer musical cousin Jazz.) Aren't siblings interesting? =:P

I miss that buzz that you get from having small children around at Christmas time. Our family is age 16 and over now, and that will be the way it stays until either myself or my brother has kids, which I don't foresee happening for a while!

I miss winding my brother up about Christmas, and having that disturbance at some unearthly hour of Christmas morning, I think that I pushed alot of my excitement onto my brother so that I at least appeared grown up to everyone but Toby :D

I miss that too Foxy...my kids are teens now...and there really aren't any little ones in the family, everyones all grown up....I miss that excitement from Christmas morning....jumping on our bed and saying Santa was here....checking their stockings, and getting all excited when they saw the milk and cookies were all eaten up by Santa, they even left carrots out for the reindeer!....those precious moments....

We used to leave carrots out for the reindeer as well, and a glass of sherry with a mince pie for Santas Claus...and upon waking we would hang on as long as we possibly could, before running into Mum and Dads room and then leaping down the stairs and out of the front door to find the carrots half 'eaten', and a missing mince pie and a drop of sherry left in the glass.....

I guess I have that all to look forward to eventually!

Hang in there Shawna, and know she appreciates you being there for her. Tomorrow is going to be a very tough one for me, it'll be a year my granddad has been gone and I don't quite know how I am going to make it :(

Big hugs and good thoughts for both of you :)

Shawna, I'm sorry you have to go through this with your mom. It must be tough, but like Sue said, she knows you are there for her. That means so much in a situation like that.

Sue, I remember how hard that was for you. But he's always with you, even if it's just in spirit.

Yes he is always here, in my dreams, him and my gran :) It has really taught me to see people in a different light and treasure those important to me every day, and always let them know how much I love and care for them.
