Hello single mummies (and daddies if there are any on here!), particularly the unpartnered ones...
I was just reading through the "what do you want for Christmas" thread, about people making wish lists for their husbands/partners. I know what I want for Christmas. Just no one to buy it for me! It's the same as I wanted last year (family portraits ), but after buying all the kids their presents I've usually close to running out of money and time and energy, so I didn't end up getting them. Plus buying yourself a Christmas present is abit depressing IMO! So I think last year I just bought myself a book, wrapped it up and put it under the tree and opened it with the kids. Woohoo LOL.
The kids get really disappointed if I don't get a great gift. I do get a little present off my mum, and sometimes my bestie, but as far as sitting under the Christmas tree and opening presents for myself, they're usually abit scarce.
So what happens in your house? Do you buy yourself a gift and wrap it up? Do you buy yourself a decent gift or just something small? Do you have other people that buy you a gift, so at least you get *something*?
