Christmas presents

So yesterday Partner announced he thought he might buy me a surprise Christmas present on Christmas Eve after work.

"After all," he said, "it's nice to get a surprise present on Christmas Day."

Not a surprise in as much as I don't know I'm getting it, but the surprise is what I'm getting.

This morning he skipped up hours before the crack of dawn.

"Have you get enough money to go to the supermarket?" I called, still idling my arse on the floor/in bed. (For anyone who doesn't know we haven't got round to buying a bed so sleep on camping mats on the floor).

"Yes, I think so," he said sounding organised and pleased with himself.

"And my surprise Christmas present?"

"Oh. No. I don't think I have."

Heard the noise of him hastily shoving a few more notes in his wallet.

Laughed to self. Tantalises me with the prospect of a present, and the next morning, totally forgets that he will need money to buy one.

Fine surprise that would have been.

Oh, and I'm sure this sudden surprise present has nothing to do with the fact that he wants - yet another - Land Rover Santana for Christmas.

ETA: Dog clearly knows it is Christmas too. I nipped out down the high street to get a couple of things and came back to find him devouring all the bread rolls that are meant to keep us going over the holiday.

My man is the same. In fact it kinda breaks my heart how good most men are.

The good men, like yours and mine, are so innocent and so bloody good, it makes my bitch fest moments hang their head in shame.

Thank you for this post........I will be so kind to H....w......m........n well you know how it all goes.

Give He Who Must Work some due, I like the cut of his Gib............

Ah at least he thought of getting you a present. What did you get?

Hope your gift from 'Partner' went over well. We men can sometimes get things that are too practical or with ourselves in mind for our loved ones.

I have been considering revamping my blogs. I still really like your layout and now the Musica playlist. I haven't looked lately but have not found a playlist I liked or that worked for very long. Hope you don't mind if I borrow an idea or two.

Looking forward to your report on New Year's Eve celebrations.

Feliz Año Nuevo a todos en su hogar feliz.
