Merry Christmas darling... here's a toilet!
The Tradie and I are practical people, both of us. Over the years our Christmas, Valentine's and birthday gift-giving has waned from effusive to perfunctuory to just plain non-existent sometimes (in the case of V Day).
It just seems silly to spend on each other when there's so many bills to pay, and we're sort of useless gift-givers anyway.
It's become even worse since we bought our first home a year ago; there's just SO much that needs to be done and so little cash to do it with, I don't believe we've exchanged so much as a plucked garden rose and a card between us the last 12 months.
But this year's Christmas will take the cake. Instead of presents for each other this year we decided we'd buy something "for the house" instead. Makes sense. But what does "the house" need right now?
A new toilet.
That's right, we're buying a dunny for Christmas. Seasons greetings honey!
Tell me you find this as funny as I do.
Do you and your partner buy Christmas gifts for each other?
