For me money is not a problem and i have had a good time getting the presents for people, i must admit my dad can be a problem but this year i got him a DVD box set of John Wayne westerns :santa:

Ironically its not money or what to get people thats an issue for me this Christmas. Its the employment front.

Got plenty of cash to do me a long while but I'd rather be working than sitting bored all day.

i know not easy to find a job at the moment my partner was made redundant in june but lucky for him he is very skilled in what he does and has now gone self employed but even for him theres not loads of jobs about.

We don't do pressies for christmas, valentines or birthdays etc we have no kids so we get stuff we want all through the year if we can aford it and it means a lot more when hubby comes home from work with a nice romantic card and pressie just because he felt like it. Hubby normally swops shifts to work xmas day so people with kids can be at home
#16
my loved ones don't need gifts.......it's about spending time together as a family, not about what presents we give each other

so we are not struggling with anything and never have

I'm bored sitting at home too, got made redundant in august, been trying to find a job since. I worked in London in the banking industry, just about the worst place I could have worked. The kids presents are sorted but not buying for my parents or partner, due to lacking funds.
