AND there was I thinking I was well organised this year.
Two years ago Carolyn bought a cheap treadmill. Two months ago she got round to opening the box, discovered it was rubbish and asked me to dump it. So this year, I figured she’d appreciate a Wii Fit – you know, lots of exercise but in a fun, virtual reality way.
Unfortunately, she suspected my plan and last night told me that while she appreciated the thought (which was Carolynspeak for “I don’t appreciate the thought”), she didn’t want a Wii Fit for Christmas.
So now I have to organise the sending back of two fairly large boxes and the buying of a replacement gift. Where to start? What do you buy the girl who has everything, and who doesn’t actually want the stuff she doesn’t have?
Misery. All is misery.
Carolyn found it difficult to hide her true feelings
