My Christmas Journal


I did one of these last year and enjoyed it, and ended up with a few people that I was regularly talking to which was really nice. So I figured I would go for it again.
Little bit about me, I'm a 31 year old, married, mum of 4 boys from Kent, England.
This year we have decided to have Christmas at home, just the 6 of us.

So far I'm only about a third of the way through each of the boys, have ordered half my BIL's and that's it in the way of family, and DH and I are not sure whether we will be getting each other anything at all. It will all depend on whether or not he gets a bonus from work.
I don't have very many ideas for anyone other than what I've already bought or ordered, but I'll keep my lists in here. Items with a * next to them have already been bought/ordered. A ? means I'm not sure about it. I also have my mum's birthday to buy for. DH birthday is December as is our anniversary but we are doing things for both rather than buying gifts.

It's so hard to buy for them, but I figured anything to do with the kids and something they can simply hang up and look at would do the job really.

So according to my calculations, if I get DS1 the PlayStation Plus (I can't remember if he needs it to play online with the ps4 or not. The ps3 doesn't need it but he nagged me something chronic last January until I paid for it for him so I really don't know) it'll put me over budget for him. I also still need to get him little bits and pieces for his stocking. It looks like he has nothing as well if you just go by items on that list. I have explained to him that price wise what he is asking for and what the others are asking for, they could end up with 5 presents to 1 of his. I just hate how expensive and small things are as he's getting older.
