We did a “buy your own gift” year this year. I bought Motocourse 1993, the year The Unrideables era ended (or the beginning of the end began). MrsS bought two leather leads for the dogs. I know I should feel shame and selfish in my choice but meh.
Aside from beer and chocolate I got some slippers, merino glove liners and a ‘Wells’ family photo album from 2017 to 2022 - pretty modest but I’ve had a great time with the family.
Both my boys have been made up with a Polly Pocket for the eldest and a fluffy cat teddy for the youngest - long may these days continue. It’ll be iPhones, tablets, games consoles etc before we know it
Slight update to my original post, which was written when I was slightly miffed that pretty much all I’d received (from the wife) was male grooming products and a couple of pairs of socks, one of which very novelty & seasonal. I think she was trying to give me a slight message as I’m not currently a user of (m)any male grooming products.
My parents treated us to a day at Longleat yesterday, spent a full day there doing the safari, a boat trip and finishing off with the festival of lights. Got very lucky with the weather, as it was quite miserable at the start of the day, but most of that time was spent in the car doing the safari. That was a very good preset enjoyed by all the family.
I’ve just pulled the trigger on a Garmin 255 Music and the LifeLine trainer table (with power) recommended by @stenard
