Why Husband will have a lonely old age

We had a lovely Christmas. Just wonderful. And because I could still remember the horror of night-time vomiting I was very careful not to over-indulge. It is now, however, becoming a more distant memory.

The only television we watched was Strictly and after that we played a Logo game. After a disastrous start I eventually won the third and final game. Let's face it, I would have insisted on playing until I did.

Uncle gave me Chanel No 5; Husband gave me Angry Birds computer game. Which explains why Uncle is enjoying his old age surrounded by attentive widows. I'm not going to say anything about Husband.

P.S. Husband asked me to say that he also gave me Plants versus Zombies computer game. He doesn't want you to think that he's mean.
P.P.S. He says it's for my own good. He's read that playing computer games keeps the brain alert and stops it atrophying.

Haha! I still say I would prefer the game over the perfume...but I'm just weird that way. AND I'm allergic to about 99% of the perfumes and colognes on the market so that tips the scale in favor of the game for me. ;-)

We didn't even give gifts this year - bah humbug! So at least you got something, LOL! :-) I've been using the Facebook games to keep my brain working... my latest addiction is Candy Crush. Unfortunately I actually paid real money to get new "lives" so I could keep playing last night! NOT doing that again. $1.00 at a time does mount up!

Personally I'd much prefer a perfume to a computer game. But I thought Chanel No 5 was now being marketed as a male perfume? Or is it now unisexual? Yours, Confused.

Um...I don't think I'd like a computer game, either. Instead, I got beautiful purple leather gloves and a coordinating scarf, several books, and a new turban for after washing my hair! lol

Oh, I forgot to say I received my "biggie" on November 25th so I could practise with it - a Canon EOS Rebel T4i...I was overwhelmed & thrilled to say the least.

No 5 is my favourite and I was right out of it, Kris.

We didn't do gifts in a big way either, mauigirl - as you can tell! Angry Birds is quite addictive though ...

Really, nick? I hadn't heard that.

A new camera? How wonderful. Even more gorgeous pics from you then, leslie.

What, you've missed all the huge full-page ads in the papers with Brad Pitt and Chanel Number 5?

Oh no, Nick! I must have done.
