The curse of getting older and having an OK income, if I want it I've probably already got it.

A new job would be great. We're getting two new kittens to fill our home in January.

There's nothing else I want really.

You'll need a video camera so you can share all those kitten antics on YouTube. :-)

Good luck with the job.

Santa already left a credit card number for me to use to purchase Amiga Forever online.... so early Xmas present. Not expecting anything else really, keeping it cheap this year :)

Santa was early this year and gave me the following:
A new Espresso machine/Grinder combo
A fab new 42" LED TV
A new job (I start in a week)

I have to say, it's a good year...normally a bit of a stressful time in my household...nice for it not to be this year.

Theres nothing much I want apart from the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ but I know Santas not brining me that. Will be donating a ham to city mission and some money to the SPCA and another undecided charity. I'm not really a fan of Xmas and try to avoid it where possible.

I pretty much have everything (materialistic items) I need.

Although I got a call a couple of months ago from my sister who lives in France, who found out she is expecting a little girl when she was originally told by Drs chances of her having another baby were very slim...so I'm getting the gift of being an auntie again, one of the best presents laughing I am going for a visit shortly after the birth in March to get some family time too!

There won't be many gifts in our house this Christmas. We got the best present ever 4 weeks ago when our first child arrived; a beautiful little girl. So we'll probably buy her stuff that she doesn't need/can't use, lol...

And I splurged on a few PS4 games recently and there's nothing I really want/need except for some nice craft beer to enjoy over the Christmas break.
