So I was reminded the other day that I haven’t been posting often…strange how life gets in the way, between teaching and studying there hasn’t been much time left for anything…but there is just a month until the school year is over here in Country Town 2.0 and then it is the Christmas holidays.
That brings me on to Christmas…I like to think I’m easy to shop for, however if I want something I will buy it. Simple as that. I find it easy to shop for most others. Actually I managed to get my Christmas shopping done in under an hour from the comfort of my couch late one night between uni readings…nothing like being easily distracted…and yes it was done online and delivered thanks to Australia Post.
But I’ve also been having discussions about extended family and Christmas and gifts. Now I’m pretty basic when it comes to Christmas…give me a great dessert for breakfast, yes it is not normal, but I am in no ways normal and I’m happy. Offer me roast turkey, a massive glazed leg ham or a huge plum pudding and I am in no ways happy. Sorry but I’ve tried turkey and didn’t like it, ham and I are never going to be friends, only passing acquaintances and as for a massive plum pudding, give me one without a huge dose of alcohol and without peel and I may enjoy it. As for gifts…what the heck to you buy a person you haven’t seen in 10 years, or only seen once in 10 years, or never met??? Gift cards sound good…well if I can spend them during the Christmas holidays then I’m happy, otherwise not overly…if they’re iTunes gift cards I definitely won’t complain. As for magazine subscriptions…well my iPad has too many different magazine subscriptions on it from around the world for me to probably admit to having.
Anyhow…here’s what I think are some good Christmas gift ideas…and in saying that they’re not necessarily things that I would want for myself…actually some of them are things that I already have.
