This is also the year that I've finally given in and bought Oxfam Unwrapped presents for everyone on my list- coincidence? Should anyone ever find themselves in the sad position of wanting to buy me something, I would be much much happier with something along these lines as I am lucky enough to be able to afford most things as I need them and tend to buy my own books as I decide I want them.

I really am convinced that were the zombie apocalypse to happen this time of year, that no one would notice until at least the day after Hogmanay.

Anyway, just to get all the boring sanctimony out the way at once, instead of buying everyone who's still reading this the coffee I'd like to, or sending a card, I had to make do with this and a grumpy look with swishing tail from Is. I suppose she at least will be getting her usual present of a can of salmon and a small portion of icecream :) If anyone wants to explain how bad it is for her, to her, be my guest. You can guard the icecream and put up with the constant mewing and acting like a little furry shark, too.

My Gran was concerned about how she'd get the schooldesk from her house to the post office as she thought Oxfam delivered it to her to send to Africa. Loved the fact she would have been happy to pay a fortune in postage.

Thank god I didnt get her the goat!

Ha :) My grandparents got me a goat- I'd hate to think of the look on the woman who runs the local Post Office if I brought one in...

It's definitely an Oxfam one, it came from the other set :) If it was a sheep, I'd be thinking along the same lines as you...

Go you!
When I leave my placement school I am getting them a 'Train A Teacher' gift even though it costs £27. :-)

Look forward to seeing you soon! I will be in Edinburgh from Wednesday next week.

Pretty sure it started life as a teacosy, but yeah. Boredom is a terrible thing.

I haven't been in weeks, and have been neglecting the gym too :(

Busy, mostly! My fondest wish right now is a holiday in the sun with a big pile of books and nothing constructive to be getting on with.

You too, and enjoy the coffee :P

I bought those for people the other year. Alpacas are awesome. Someone bought me the one that is a fishing net or something, since he wanted to buy me an octopus and that was the closest :-p

Did you have a "cull unused journals" session? I probably only post 1-2 times a month (specifically when something more interesting than "I wrote two pages of my paper"), but I read LJ most days, and comment fairly often.
