TMI - to give or receive?

For this week’s TMI Tuesday why don’t you tell us:

1. What was your favorite gift that you received (gift giving holidays Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or heck even if you had a birthday in the month of December that can count)?

All I got was a pack of men's socks and I can't say they were my favourite?

I did get a wonderful belated birthday gift from YSL. He took me to a luxury hotel for the weekend, he booked a suite and took me out for dinner to a fine restaurant, drank cocktails and indulged me in every way possible.... But the biggest part of the gift was the time spent together. I loved just giggling and rolling around on the bed together.

2. What was the most practical gift that you received?
Erm socks?

3. What was the silliest, most fun, crazy or impractical gift that you received?
Erm socks

4. If you had a special holiday meal, what was your favorite food?

Bonus: Share the recipe of your favorite food from the holiday meal.
Sock surprise?

Take one mildly optimistic wife, suggest you bothered to buy a gift. Unwrap your many well chosen gifts and the present her with a badly wrapped package and await her face to melt and false smile to appear.

Bonus, bonus: Whatcha doin’ for New Year’s Eve?
I have a few friends over for dinner, games and fireworks.

Me and YSL are planning our own special new year the week following, I know we will have a wonderful start to 2012 together.
Keep you posted!

Go see who else played

Yep that's me in the socks right now... More a stockings kind of girl


  1. The pampering to which YSL treats you stands in stark contrast to the socks that your husband gave you. Not every woman whose husband is so obtuse and uncaring is so lucky to have found someone who truly values her. That you were able to give even a false smile is testament not only to your inner strength and patience but to the effect that YSL has had on you.

    Your repeated sock-related answers had us laughing. Thank you for that!

  2. May I say that you look MUCH better in the stockings then the socks.
    You are so lucky to have YSL in your life what a lucky man he is.

  3. That frankly... ummmn... socks. Big time. Glad you could have a sense of humour about it! I at least got a gift card to Starbucks out of my union...

    I hope you have a wonderful New Years!!

  4. LOL at the socks and, purple of all colours? I had quite a laugh at your answers.
    Thank you very much for the lovely message by the way

  5. Socks!...Wow! That's poor, thank fuck you have YSL!

  6. Excellent!!!! The husband finally gave you socks!!!!! and at Christmas time too, what a magical and special time for this to happen. Gosh, the socks must have been good as it is clearly all that you can think about as it runs through all of your answers. Socks for this, socks for that, he's unleashed the animal in you that is socks crazy.....................oh hang on, it was socks, not sex, right?

    Bah, business as usual for Yummy. YSL looks forward to giving you lots of treats in 2012.

  7. The socks are cute but the stockings definitely look better. Happy TMI Tuesday!

  8. 1. "...I loved just giggling and rolling around on the bed together."

    Yes that can be intoxicating.

    2. I got socks too

    You crack me up...socks!

    I don't want to try sock surprise, especially if the socks have been worn.

    Sorry to hear hubby didn't even make an effort.

    The socks are cute and your favorite color :)
