Christmas list requests

Well its that time of year again and this year I thought I would reach out and embrace the new technology in the world today and so, with this in mind I thought I would have a bash at this and see if it helps make life a bit easier.
Now this is not just for me you understand, oh no, whatever you post on this wish list on the run up to Christmas will be visible to all your friends and relatives that visit so if I cant get you it don’t forget that someone else might.
Look at this as a way to express what you would like to receive from the people around you and what would brighten up a hopefully cold and snowy morning on December 25th and hopefully the day can be full of happy surprises without you having to leave the seed catalogue open at page 28 or the print out of the dimensions to the new ark that will hold another 3 chickens.
Well I hope this will help everyone to have a merry festive season and make a bit less work for me and the elves this year, were not getting any younger and once again enjoy.
P.S. I am looking around a lot of other places this year but I will pop back every so often to check on the progress and put this thread back on topic if it strays to far as they so often do……….


Oh yes MERRY CHRISTMAS HO HO HO

Thanks moonwind - not quite what I'm after.

Not bad Fatboy but I was looking for something like this, maybe with sunrise and sunset thrown in.

I might even try that gardening by the moon business next year.

A saddle and bridle just like the ones I am buying for my daughter tomorrow Confused I have coveted them for several years now ... I have gone seriously wrong somewhere Rolling Eyes

A pair of work/walking boots; a pair of moleskin breeches. To replace the ones that are clapped out in unrepairable ways.
A more enjoyable festive season than last year Laughing

Maybe a new ( well new to me ) food precessor - one that can do a bit more than my poor old thingy. Perhaps a Kenwood that I can gather attachments for? What would be the best old model to go for?

More cake tins, you can never have enough cake tins Very Happy

Anyone seen the new Jamie book yet, heard a bit on the radio yesterday, and wondered if my eldest would like it. He's 17, and just starting to show an interest in cooking.

I'd quite like a pretty frock, but that's very naughty Embarassed

Too old to be flashing my legs around nowadays Sad

Just seems a bit well... frivalous really, when we have so little at the moment, and there are so many more useful things I should have.

Gettings something frivolous even if its just something little can do us all some good sometimes

I would recommend to look ar stay away depending on your predeliction to ebay I have found some wonderful and cheap jewellery on there and even if you can't manage a new dress some nice jewellry to brigthen up an existing outfit can sometime be as good

Be frivalous woman................

Rich the tractor says I need a crew of agricultural workers from Latvia to do my tree weeding and planting. But I don't believe in Santa.

Not yet, dear, surely?

I want an alpaca or two (and a paddock to keep them in!) and if that's too frivilous, a new pair of boots (nice ones, not walking ones!) On a practical note (and what I shal probably be having) is a greenhouse and a pair of gaiters. And some fruit bushes.

Oi nanny, stop hogging all the pressie's, you just got your wish Wink
