All I Want For Xmas Is…

The tree at my Mum & Dad's...before the kids attack!

*I don’t want a lot for Christmas- there is just one thing I need. I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree. I don’t need to hang my stocking there upon the fireplace. Santa Claus won’t make me happy with a toy on Christmas Day… Make my wish come true, all I want for Christmas is….

That would be telling!

Seriously though, I don’t want a lot- I have Venus in Aries & buy as I go! I’m not a bling girl & get sick of important jewellery (a good cop out for my husband)…although having said that, there is a gorgeous gold necklace with a bird on a twig in Husk that I spied last time I was in Melbourne. Despite this, I still have managed to compile a pretty comprehensive list. At the very top of it? For my dreams to come true (cue harps, sighing & dolphins leaping).

But it got me thinking what sort of non material things each sign would be looking for…some suggestions for the girl/guy in your life that has everything:


A new bucket to put all the new bucket list items in…although the rate at which you tick them off…

Suggested NY Resolutions:

This year I will finish at least one out of every three new projects I start.


A rather nice little Renoir would go down well, as would anything from Tiffanys…but a huge box of chocolates a warm fire and cuddly couch or breezy hammock to curl up on while I eat them all myself would be nice.

Suggested NY Resolutions:

One in One out. Positive impact on clutter- for every one item brought into the home, another must go out- make friends with a charity shop or ebay.


Hmmm a new social network to join, a new phone, anything versioned up from the last version of the absolutely latest gadget there is. Books & CDs used to be great, but now they are so yesterday, so the electronic versions please.

Suggested NY Resolutions:

Just because it plugs into something, talks to something or comes with accessories doesn’t mean that I need to buy it. In 2011 I am going to try actual talking to real live people- not just virtual ones.

Tomorrow: Cancer, Leo & Virgo
