    Hello! I have a husband who wants nothing as he wants for nothing… he does compromise at Christmas by accepting the latest Ian Rankin book, but if Ian stops writing, I don’t know what I’ll do.

    Yours is quite the most delightful list I have seen. I just did lots of gift buying at the fantastic Christmas Markets in Millthorpe, now posting delectable comestibles back to family in Scotland. The postage costs more than the gifts!
