Not as much as whatsapp though. Other than those FIVE, he's not into social media at all.

I had to Parcel Motel a load of stuff because the dates to the UK were a week or more shorter than to Ireland on Amazon. In all likelihood the stuff probably would have come on time but you just can't risk it with presents.

i bought myself 2 books and a pair of trainers when i went xmas shopping a couple of weeks ago and i felt really guilty about it, even though i needed them.

this is the worst time of year for buying things, you always think you should be spending the money on someone or something else.

Yet when people ask you is there anything you want, you can never think of anything

Yeah, I bought myself a new MacBook last week when I went out to look at stuff, but sure that's too expensive to ask the Mrs to get me anyway
