Ode to Being Outgifted

So every year I get outfigted by Tom, I'm just not that thoughtful when it comes to presents and he always ends up getting the same sorts of things: clothes, playstation games, manfume, etc. This year I got him a pair of Toms (badumdum), a watch, a game, and a lot of other tat and he came up trumps AGAIN. I'm not posting this as a "look at how spoilt I am and feel well jel" post, I just thought I'd say nice things about my boyfriend as he got me things I'd wanted to buy myself for yonks but couldn't afford.



I'M IN LOVE WITH THIS DRESSING TABLE, he'd sneekily put it together in our shed outside and I don't know how he managed to keep it a secret, it's exactly what I wanted and I can't wait to start decorating the spare room into a french boudoir and sing Frere Jacques as I'm getting ready in the morning. I really wasn't expecting anything else from him so was completely overwhelmed at everything else he bought.
Although the guilt did creep in and spread its horrid butterflies as he'd told me he had an "idea" of what to get me and I said "Can I have a bag instead?" I really did mean instead of not aswell as so I deffs felt like a Spoilt Susan. So all in all it was a rather nice day with some good food and the in-laws, the only thing missing was my own family - my mum and dad are living in Spain and my sister was visiting her own inlaws avec child so it didn't really feel like a routine Christmas for me, and I was made to wear a paper crown which is always a downer : /

Hope everyone had a guddun, I'm about to settle down with some Yule Log and trawl my google reader to stalk everyone elses Christmas!

  17. I ADORE that dressing table - on the hunt for the perfect white one right now as it so happens but all the ones I find are either far too big or are basically just a table without any drawers or anythign and this is the perfect in between balance!

  60. As a matter of first importance, what do we mean by business bank advances? We're alluding to typical mortgages that are financed by banks and are regularly clutched by the bank. Further these credits are not sponsored by an administrative bolster, similar to B and I or SBA advances are. In this way, in light of the fact that the banks reserve and frequently clutch the obligation, they need to ensure they are OK bargains. car title loans chicago
