Nothing for Christmas !

Hiya Darlins,

How often are you asked ......."what do you want for Christmas ? "
I don't know about you, but there is something about that question that really makes me uncomfortable, maybe it's because growing up I was taught that greed was desperately unattractive, or is it a British thing where we don't want to put anyone out ? 

As a child I could have produced a list as long as an Andrex roll with puppies, of the thing's I wanted, a Post Office Set, a cash register etc, but nowadays when asked the question my reply is always ........

Not because I am being British or the fear of my Mum frowning at my greed, but because at a certain age I neither want or need anything, that's not to say I am not totally blown away at Christmas when I receive a gift that I didn't realise would fill me with delight, and I am always shocked that my Family have managed to buy me things I didn't even know I wanted until I unwrap them and realise just how clever they all are for knowing me so well.

Also, the poor things have double trouble as it's my Birthday on Christmas day :)

One of my Grandaughters really hit the nail on the head a couple of years ago, being bored of the usual, I want nothing line from me, she literally got me a present that said Nothing, I was hysterical at how apt it was.

It actually said for the person that asks for nothing lol.

Once again, I have driven them all mad with my "Nothing" wish list and my " Nothing" birthday list, and once again my little crew will come up trumps and I will be the worlds most spoiled Mum, and will spend the entire day with the OMG you shouldn't have guilt, but the secret inner glow that I have such a beautiful thoughtful family.

Are you the same ? is it an age thing do you think?  maybe we just realise the importance of life rather than things as we get older.

Love N Hugz

    Lovely post Lyn. The nothing present made me chuckle. I'd say I'm not quite at that stage but my mum's there! xx

    Exactly! I love this post, I hate the thought of someone going out their way to buy me something especially when times are hard. Happy hearts and full tummys at Christmas make my day.
