For some reason dh doesnt think its a problem that he told his family exactly how much we will be spending on them for xmas this year. His justification was that he did it so that they dont spend a fortune on us (which they usually do) when we are on a budget this year.
I dont see why he couldnt just say we are on a budget. As it is, we might as well have just left the price tag on all the presents.
And now we'll end up looking stingy cause we are spending much less on them (adults) than we are on ds

But your suppose to spend a he'll of slot more on kids than adults and your kids even more than other people's kids.
As example to portion.
any adult 5 to 10 bucks
Your partner 50
Other people kids 20
Your kids upto 100
So you won't seem stingy at all.
Totally normal to spend more on people in your immediate family than on grandparents aunt uncles siblings etc.

My hair is starting to grow back after very heavy pp hair fall and now I constantly look like I'm electrified from the all baby hairs sticking up. Not even hairspray is fixing this one!
Nestle brings out the Quality Street chocolates I remember from childhood at Christmas.
I ate them all and now feel sick and feel as though I should buy a new box so DF doesn't know.
In my defence, he hasn't been home for a couple of days...
I have had such a sh!t of a day at work. Nothing particularly bad happened, just people in my office forget that my role is national so just because you're standing at my desk doesn't mean you can jump the queue! And testing a new system which is full of bugs that should have been identified before now!
