Never mind he never buys anyone else a present. Would you consider this a crap pressie or am I being a hormonal pregnant lady?

    That would be an amazing gift and I would be hugely appreciative of the effort put into it. Tell your BIL to go and jump.

    Oh no! That made me so sad about the operation game

    Oh hold on, I think we have a winner!

    Maternity PJs two sizes too small (I'm not pregnant, not even a remote possibility) and some lavender soy things from the cheap shop. I'm allergic to lavender.

    Good job mum 👍

    I will never forget that when we were kids, one year my cousins, from their Nanna all received a can of femfresh spray. Bless her she thought it was deodorant. Lol

    Just got a set of digital kitchen scales from hubby. He's been whinging for a while that my thermy doesn't weigh in increments of 5g and that we should get some more scales - I've been very vocal of the fact that I DO NOT WANT MORE SCALES. Xmas day - Oo look some new scales, for me... Great, thanks.

    I got sweet f a from DH, not that I expected anything really but it would have been nice if him to make an effort seeing as we are trying to patch things up. Not even a homemade card from the baby.
