Well, not quite....this article arrived in Joe's inbox via the weekly email from Martins Money Tips and the content is something that we really agree with; in fact we have discussed this very thing ourselves and with Joe's mum (@mrs_ordinary) this week.
Don't get us wrong, we do love to give and receive presents, but sometimes it does feel like the whole presents thing becomes an obligation rather than a choice. We don't want anyone to feel like they have to find us something, just because that's what everyone expects! (And please don't take this as some sort of affront to presents we've received in the past - we've got some brilliant things over the years - but also some...interesting things!) As well as the whole economic hoo ha that everyone is facing, we're saving for a wedding this year, which does focus the mind, cash-wise. So we just thought we'd put this out there, and see what other people think. Answers on a postcard please!
Back to dinner...check out Jo's perfect frittata!
