What would you like for Christmas? World peace would be a start, a brand new bathroom with czech & speake fittings or perhaps (another) vintage kelly bag? Ok, maybe will just settle for some Liberty vouchers…
My Christmas wish lists used to be as long as my arm, perhaps even longer. As a child, Santa (my parents) bought me everything I wanted. Sounds idylic, though it does not necessarily make for a happy adult. Sooner or later, life hits one on the head, and we realise we can’t always have what we want and that’s just how it is.

Lower expectations and join the royals in their gift exchange habits. Apparently our British royals, shun expensive Christmas gifts, opting instead for humorous, home made or very low key items.
