101 things you would like to receive for Christmas

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.

Mrluvpie to realise that when I say I don't want anything bought I mean it, all I want is something that him and the boys have made together, don't care what it is, although as I taught him how to make truffles the other night :wink: , but a picture or anything, something I can treasure rather than just another thing to clutter up the house!

Oh and a lie in, but thats not going to happen is it :lol:
the ever growing luvpie household currently contains, 4 boys, 4 chickens, 2 cats, 2 rabbits, 4 fish, an empty tropical fish tank waiting new arrivals, now are we daft to look at our broody hen thinking, if we got some fertilised eggs........

53. Nothing thanks. I can't be doing with more "stuff" round the flat. I'm still working out where to put "Stuff" from last year.

54. Less consumerism. It's a flaming spendfest and no fun at all is Xmas.
