Ahoy-hoy.

Me Da's getting a Nespresso machine from us. Ma wants baking lessons. Might book a long weekend in Santorini for me and the missus.

What are we all buying this year then?

I must have looked at about 1,000 frames at this stage for my sister.
Looking for a three picture frame, as I've manage to dig out photos of her, her daughter and my mother when each of them where 2 (and looking identical). Scanned them, resized and printed, but just can't seem to find the right one to suit for less than 100 quid.

that's an awesome idea. my sister organised new family photo albums for my Mam one xmas. Probably the best present she ever got, despite it being something she technically already had

That's my project this year actually.

Gathered all the old family photos, scanned and now need to get them printed into a photobook.

There's seven of us in the family so it's a good way of sharing the pics.

Getting my dad a digital radio and my mum (who's developing into a full-on cat lady) some stuff from that famous instagram cat's store.

Chances of getting it onto the cat without it scratching her to death: slim.

Jesus, I really hope my mates aren't cunty about that sort of thing when everyone starts getting married.

People went bats over a christening recently (so many presents) so I'm scared it'll only get worse.
