      I think I may have something that has caterpillar tracks and is smart and quite small.

      :)

      This year there will be absolutely nothing and nothing I particularly want so cannot buy myself a Christmas present.

      I already know. 1 x Eurostar ticket from London to Amsterdam & 1 x BA flight from Amsterdam to London City airport. Going to the annual Kings day party there next year :)
      SWMBO would have just got me a return trip on Eurostar but unfortunately their Amsterdam return isn't direct, hence the return flight.

      Interesting - why not Eurostar both ways. I know you have to change at Brussels on the way back, but it's in the same station.

      Re the Christmas presents - We're thinking of not buying each other anything and getting a new sofa and chair instead :D

      My head will be banging on the return so a quick 40 minute flight direct into LCY as opposed to a 5+ hour train ride with a change is so much more civilised ;) Besides Brussels is a total dump!

      The Mrs has been asking me daily although I honestly can't think of anything! I buy what I need throughout the year so I'm pretty much covered.

      Might resort to a couple of PS4 games or a strap for my watch, Christmas is all about giving, would much rather see the Mrs & kids happy.

      Can't think of anything I want apart from a smile on the kids face so I'll be sorted :)

      Will probably end up with some clothes but I'm rubbish to buy presents for as I've either already bought it or it's going to be too expensive for a present.

      After reading your posts you seem to be in a similar situation to my friend Paul.
      I would dearly love to give Paul a bit of my good health from me to help him, It's a pity I can't do that.

      :(

      A new weather station after the wife's over enthusiastic cleaning of the old one caused its demise.

      She's asked for a Hurdy Gurdy kit - which I know I will end building :)

      The kids being teenage girls want designer clothes and expensive perfume. They will be getting clothes and perfume...

      Wife always works on Xmas day and my daughter will be at her boyfriend's parents' house, so my present will be the house to myself and a long film.

      Having spent all our money on the kids (again), the wife and i agreed that nothing would be fine. I muttered something about a 20KG Kettlebell which she replied in silence with that look women seem to posses.
      I agree.
      Nothing is fine.

      Lots of vinyl records.

      Re-discovering vinyl means I'll do pretty much anything for a nice gatefold sleeved double LP...

      I'm often away on Business either right up to Christmas Day, or have to leave the Day After.
      This Year I'm here for the entire Holiday Season so I get to spend it at Home with my Darling Wife. That's my Present.
      And before anybody says anything, she says that's the Best Present she could have too!
      Honestly, she said that!
      She wouldn't make that up, would she!
      Would She?
      :D

      Me and the missus normally spend a fair bit on each other, but I'm always a nightmare to buy for, if I want something I'll just buy it, the other year I saw a great deal on a ps4 a couple of days before Xmas so I bought it, unbeknown to me that she had already bought me one, I got the better deal so made her take the one that she had already wrapped up back for a refund, that didn't go down well lol, this year we've said we will just get each other a little something from the kids instead, I'd happily receive nothing as long as the kids have a great day

      Got Mrs F01 a tablet (not for the headaches, for digital art lol), and she's got me Oculus Touch Controllers for my (early adopted) Oculus Rift. Neither of us could wait till Christmas so I'm having fun while Mrs F01 is producing spectacular art.

      Really? Out-of-date biscuits no good for you anymore? Don't get above your station son, biscuits in-date have their downsides too, you know.
