Santa baby ...
« on: December 21, 2019, 17:19 »
I haven't actually expressed any interest in a sable under the tree, but I have been a good(ish) girl and have a list, including some gardening goodies :)

Top is some fiendish Japanese gardening tools - I will be a plot ninja next year you know  :nowink:  :lol:  I'm also hoping for some good old usefuls, like gloves, plus a voucher or two.

What have you asked for?

I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)

Well, I asked Mrs Growster, and we went and bought it a few weeks ago...

Still, I'll be able to watch my terrible old films in the privacy of my own eyes and ears!

Actually, we bought Mrs Growster's online a couple of months ago, and the paper will cost nearly as much!

We tend to buy our presents during the year then when we unwrap them it's often oh, I forgot about that and there's always a secret one we buy each other as a surprise. All I've asked for is another cat calendar as there's nothing else I really want. In the New Year I'll see if there's a pair of French navy shoes I could buy to match the handbag OH bought for me when we were on our Scottish cruise.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.

Santa you really bossed it this year  :D  I used my fiendish new hand hoe today for the first time and it is officially the best thing ever.

https://www.niwaki.com/store/hand-hoe/

Beautifully made and I fell in love when it arrived with the business end neatly wrapped in a bit of Japanese newspaper.  Makes weeding a cinch as you chop and let the weight of the tool unearth the offending item.   I dug holes to plant stuff and chopped suckers off the base of fruit trees, plus weeded several raised beds in no time.  I got the weeding hoe as well but have not used it yet.  There will be more appearing on the birthday list  ;)

Were your pressies good  :)

Lots of lovely hand cream, which I would never buy for myself.  :)  Mrs B

For the first year EVER, people actually listened when I said I don't want anything at all. I hate surprises, I hate having to pretend whatever it is was exactly what I wanted/needed so this year I finally got my nothing. I treated myself to some Thewordwemustnotsay day shopping on the T&M website, today I got all the dispatch emails  :D
