3rd post tonight! I'm on a roll!

Just wrapped up a few gifts I've gotten people already, getting into the christmas spirit by throwing some tinsel on the shelf too.

What're you all hoping Santa will bring you this year? 

Keeping my fingers crossed for a case for my new MacBook because they seem to be in short supply everywhere, or a foot spa. 

Failing that, booze or petrol vouchers. I'm easily pleased.

So lets here it, whats on the list?

Bought myself some new clothes. Looking to buy a Food Processor, new chopping boards, first electric shaver, new PS4 games (TLOU, Far Cry and Destiny) and slippers. Deliveries have started to arrive so just going to leave them all under the tree :)

I spent SO much on Amazon this last week due to having someone prepared to bring it back for me. 3 x 500GB SSD's, 3 x 128GB USB 3 Sticks, new diamond clean top of the line toothbrush, new helicopter (Baby), Amazon Voyage and Echo So much stuff. Poor Santa will have to make two trips this year. Once to our house, once to everyone elses house :)

Well I'm hoping that I get a late present once my debts have been paid down - 'Retina' MacBook Pro and eventually an iMac once either there is a refresh of the non-retina ones or maybe looking at getting a Retina iMac once the drivers are updated and better optimised for the X295M GPU. As for immediately - nothing all that much, maybe some socks, undies, a gift voucher or two.

Buy the time we are finished spoiling the kids, all Santa brings is a big credit card bill :-(  

Under restructure at work, so fingers crossed I get to keep my job...that would be a nice present.

I'm going to treat myself to the new Canon 100-400mm Mk2, but from what Photo & Video tell me, it might be more like an Easter rather than a Christmas present.

I stopped buying Christmas presents a few years ago in favour of giving the money to charity instead, and in fairness I don't expect anyone else to buy me presents. Right now I can't think of anything I need anyway.

Fibre install booked for Thursday - so 100/50 fibre hopefully.
Stream 7 tablet should hopefully be arriving this week.
Chromecast is on it's way from Youshop.

Otherwise I am getting a safety razor + brush kit (inspired by the choose me a shaver thread) from the wife.
Buying the wife some books at her request.

Got a ridiculous amount of wine for my birthday last week so sorted there.

That's about it really. I think we've managed to sort out not buying presents for the grown ups, just the kids. Saves us a fortune.
