101 things you would not like to receive for Xmas!

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

5. Any toiletries (unless organic!)
6. recipe books (its a running joke with my husband that his mother buys be a recipe book, she must think I cant cook!)
7. Anything large that takes up a lot of toom (we have a very small house and cannot fit any more stuff into it)
8. anything pink (used to be in love with anything pink when I was 17, at the age of 26 I have now gone off it, but some people have not yet realised this.)

9. Anything from these glossy supplements that come in newspapers or get shoved through your door (mother please note).
10. Anything made of plastic (ditto above).
11. Any toiletries - why can no-one get their head round the idea I make and sell these things for a living and I don't need fake scented soaps or anything else thankyou - even if they're made by posh companies :lol: .

I never used to make toiletries, but I used to sell some made by Green People. Yet at Christmas I would still receive toiletries from my mother which she bought from Primark. :banghead: Thankfully, I don't receive any presents from her any more.

19 Anything other than some amaretti biscuits and a carpet sweeper!
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
