Have you bought yourself a Christmas present?
« on: 09 Dec 2012 09:38AM »
I always buy myself a Christmas present.

This is what I have bought for myself this year - although not from this website - it is the only image I could find of my Rudolph.  I just couldn't resist him.

Awww! He's so sweet!

I was going to buy myself a pair of coloured crutches, but am having problems in finding ones to suit my hands.

My cousin bought a Xmas reindeer a couple of years ago with red plastic ears which waggle as it 'sings' a seasonal song when you touch it. Her grand children love it. Its become a regular Xmas feature.

Its really annoying but at the same time rather endearing. Sorry. >reindeer<

I think that sounds like good innocent festive fun - after all, tis only once a year!

My Christmas present to myself is usually a box of (rather expensive) crystallised fruits, which I get with the DWP's Christmas Bonus ..

NN, you can buy 'skins' for crutches so if you can find a set to suit your hands, you may be able to get a skin to jazz them up.

Luv the reindeer Yvette.   >biggrin<

My present to myself this year is going to be another pussy-cat.  As soon as the kitchen is finished I'll be down at the Pets Protection people.

Yes, I am looking forward to it very much.  This time I hope to get one that is not quite so dribbly as the last.

I'm getting a cat, I'm getting a cat, I'm getting a cat, I'm getting a cat, I'm getting a cat, I'm getting a cat, I'm getting a cat, I'm getting a cat,

I bought myself a ticket to see the Mediaeval Baebes in concert in Gloucester Catherdral.  I treat myself every christmas to a ticket to see them play live.

Auntie - that's brilliant news!  >cool< >blackcat< >cool<

Leg_Iron, sounds great. Used to go every year to see the Messiah being performed, and it was always magnificent.

Yvette - can't seem to find any skins for forearm crutches available in the UK.

Google did turn these up, though:

http://www.chicaidcrutches.co.uk/categories/full-cuff-crutches-325/anatomic-full-cuff-coloured-crutches-product-3903.htm

The red looks nice. They'll have to wait until my birthday though,as they're pricey, and I need to replace my old faithful pair, and their Fetterman tips, which are brilliant incidentally, so thanks for the advice on these!

Hi Yvette, have you got their latest album, "The Huntress"?  It was released a couple of weeks ago.  I pre-ordered it.
