    Ah come on, a tool set, in post Celtic Tiger Ireland? That's about as thoughtful as giving the young lad a Spinning Jenny or a Commodore 64.


    its a singing/talking tool set

    In fairness OP, my kids presents look a bit miserable in comparison to what's under your tree. They didn't ask for much and got what they asked for, but still, feeling a bit guilty now:(

    My son got lots, but they're all nerf guns. Smyths had a sale on them, I feel cheap :o

    Dont trust me its not about how much u get or what it is at that age. More excitement more then anything. Jesus i wish i could go back to those simple times when i knew nothing and just took life for what it was :pac:

    Mine too.

    Your pic makes me sad. I miss the days of lots of toys now it's tiny things that cost a bomb and look pretty misrrable under the tree.

    Buy a really tiny tree next year, it'll make smaller presents look massive!

    You still have a little one "waiting"?
    Tenacious, are they?:D

    No, I'm the one waiting. He's the one too stressed over not being asleep in time for Santa arriving which might mean Santa won't stop to sleep. Vicious circle. Time for a double hot whisky for the pet. He needs to learn early that alcohol can solve most problems. :D

    Dont feel guilty, sometimes things are better sometimes worse, its all swings and roundabouts.

    I bet your kids will be just as happy as mine in the morning.

    Mine won't. Still awake and messing, be like a bag of cats in the morning. Hopefully the pressies will keep them subdued.

    putting the tree in front of the drinks cabinet is just an awful idea. but apart from that looks great!


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,037 ✭✭✭✭RobbingBandit


    Santa doesn't wrap presents, William Shatner made it weird for Fat Old White Men with beards to Rap.;)

    Since when did Santa not wrap presents?!! :eek:

    The unwrapping was the best part!

    i asked the wife if she is looking forward to taking her new present for a spin today. her face lit up.
    i cant wait to see her face when she unwraps her new washing machine

    Watch her face when she puts it on 2000rpm and looks at you, an obsolete appliance...

    Nice one OP, you're after just reminding me I forgot to polish off the snack my son left out for Santa and Rudolph earlier! :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,459 ✭✭✭Chucken


    Santa arrived here about a half hour ago for my little shiny new grandson :D

    I passed on our tradition of reading his momma and her brother "The night before Christmas" and he went off to sleep :)

    He's a month old. I cant ever remember being so emotional.

    Presents to/from others = Wrapped
    Santa presents = Unwrapped

    In our house at least :p

    Sad to think this is probably the last year in our house where Santa exists, boo
