Things I Know I Want for Christmas
I’ve been thinking A LOT about what I want for christmas. Members of my family have been asking me what I’d like and, to be honest, I haven’t really been able to give them an answer. It’s not something I think about all the time.
I mean, there are things I would LOVE, but they’re not really gift material (like winning the lotto or a new car or magically having our house extension completed or ensuring my kids are happy all their days) you know, simple things like that?
So, I have put my thinking cap on and I have come up with a bit more of a realistic list for christmas – well, some things are still not going to happen but they are a bit more closer to the mark than my big dreams!
1. Castle Series 1-3 on DVD
I have loved Castle pretty much since it started on Channel 7 a few years back. It is my absolute favourite show – it is funny, romantic and witty and has a murder to solve every week, as well as the ongoing mystery of the death of Kate Beckett’s mother. I saw a boxed set of Castle at JB-HiFi the other day for under $100 which I think is a great deal so this would make an awesome christmas gift, for me, anyway!
2. Pandora Charm Bracelet
It was love at first sight when I first saw this thing of beauty. Although they have been around for a few years I would still be pretty damn excited if one of the gifts under the tree for me turned out to be one of these lovelies!
3. Tickets to the Australian Open 2012
I went to the Australian Open in Melbourne earlier this year and had a ball. Each year I go down to Sydney for the Apia International in the week before the Australian Open (and I’m heading there again in January!) but I would love to head back to Melbourne for a weekend of culture and tennis. And if my husband wanted to accompany me for a weekend away sans kids that would be even better!
I can’t remember how long I have been without a watch for now – a couple of years, at least. I would like to get a decent one but I really haven’t seen one that has taken my fancy – so maybe it would be best for me just to get one and be done with it? I know it would stop my incessant checking of my mobile phone in order to determine the time…
5. Gift Cards
This is what I will end up with but at least I will have the chance to a) have some time out to myself when shopping and b) have the chance to buy stuff that I really like. Top of my list this year will be updating my wardrobe (it needs some serious work) and adding some accessories (I do not own a belt nor much jewellery). I do need to look okay for DPCON12 now, don’t I?
Yay, I know what I want for christmas (and now you do too!). Linking with Shae from Yay for Home for Things I Know – go on and check out what everyone else knows this week!
