I am working hard on not overspending this Christmas. it is lovely seeing the children all excited about getting presents, but I know that they will have one particular gift that they love and ignore the rest and so I do not want to end up paying out for things that they will not use. I am being careful in what I spend. I have heard other parents at school asking where can I buy ps3 games and talking about the hundreds of pounds they have already spent on gifts, just for their children. I think that the reason we are well off, is because we do not spend loads on gifts. The children still get excited about Christmas and enjoy their presents, even though they do not get huge and expensive things. They have plenty of toys anyway and so have no need for more and I am running out of space to put them!
