bah humbug

Well, that's most of the christmas shopping done. I love the interwebs. Last year, I said "to hell with it" and informed my family I was giving them all charity gifts, because I have no idea what they want/need/already have. I bought them all Shelter Gifts (gifts in lieu) from the Lort Smith Animal Hospital - you know the thing, you pay $80 and they give you a card to give to the recipient which says 'money has been donated in your name, and will pay for the upkeep of a litter of kittens in foster care for one month". My family all *loved* the idea, and decided that I should do it again this year. They also offered to send me money instead of presents, which I can either spend on myself, or donate as well (I'm giving it to the kitties as well.) Anyway, a quick squizz at their site, choose which shelter gifts I want to give them, ring the hospital, and BAM! All done. Also ordered Annie's christmas present (gold-trimmed champagne glasses - very Annie). That just leaves Alana's unicycle, and a few different bits and pieces. YAY. Oh, and posting the packages to those of you who left your details in my post last week. Phew.

we should have a little pre xmas get together before we go to tas.
and hey would you be interested in seeing brideshead revisited movie ?
I have a free double pass, just need to see when and where its on, I apparently can use it anywhere, just not on Saturdays or half price nights
We should. When do you head off?

Sure. I don't know the series at all, but I heard it was good.
we go on the 21st dec i think, though we haven't booked flights etc yet.

Ill find out when the films on and get back to you. any night your not available ?
Nah, most nights are usually fine.
That shelter idea is awesome. They don't do that here. I should suggest it.
You really should - it's great! I'd much rather people gave money to a charity then give me a present I don't need - I earn enough to buy what I want and I actually don't want that much.
My Kelpie Jack is from the Lort Smith so a big internet double thumbs up for your Chrissy presents. As long as it wasn't donations to the Human Fund :)
Yay for you and Jack!

I had to google The Human Fund ... ha! Nice.
Jack says Thanks from the bottom of his lost dog little heart and Merry Christmas...
