    A new fork after his lordship snapped the other one. Needs to be a tall one which seems very hard to find.

    i usually have a very short Xmas list of things that would be nice to have but I don't really need. This year is different. My poor family are in for a shock! My list is very long and is added to and amended every week! Just suggestions mind?. Top of the list is a heated Propogator, I have had so much pleasure from growing plants from seeds for the first time this year that I want to invest in some more sophisticated kit.

    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.

    We had a deal last year whereby nobody could spend more than a tenner, you had to get as many presents as possible and kudos awarded for naffness.

    Strangely, many of the presents turned out to be more useful than the usual expensive tat. e g the bit of plastic for opening jars, the keyring light - handy for looking in a dark handbag  . Some less useful - like the cork with a light stuck on it so that you could change your empty wine bottle into an 'attractive' lamp.

    It was fun buying and receiving them and totally stress-free. I'm looking forward to doing it again this year.

    In London. Keen but lazy.

     B3 : we do a secret santa in my family. You get allocated a name and can spend no more than £50. The person organising it gets to add silly things to the list along with suggestions that the original person hadn't requested.

    Both OH and I have birthdays close to Xmas so decided years ago that we would buy decent b'day prezzies but have a £10 limit for Xmas.  This went after Possum arrived in January 1995.   I'd really like to go back to it or swap it and do simple b'days and fancy Xmas.

    Either way, my shopping list is, as always, garden and sometimes house related so this year it's a man with a bulldozer to smooth out the former hen patch and make a veggie plot and a ditch in which to bury water and leccy from house to veggies; the timber for raised beds; a greenhouse and/or polytunnel; heated propagating bench as opposed to a bought propagator, a tree surgeon to take out a damaged ash and a sick plum and so on and so forth.   Big stuff but needed anyway so why not for Xmas?
