Without a doubt the men in my life are the hardest. My brother-in-laws are the top of the list of dreaded birthdays. I try to get my Man to do the choosing - but even he struggles. So since I love making gifts, I've gone all out. This year the brother-in-law is getting this. It's so belated, I almost kept it for Xmas. But what is it? Well, it's a hard covered lecture pad, and I made the cover from vinyl. He may hate it.... but I am appealing to his sense of humour. He will get the reference. Plus he's doing his MBA, so it's not like he doesn't need something to take notes in ... who doesn't need a little humour injection in some of those lectures?
I made one just like it at Xmas time for another dear man. His may be hidden at the back of a drawer as we speak... but I have to get points for trying, non? And I made a different version way back when for my man's birthday. He still uses it. He's OK with it. SO I've decided. This is this year's pressie. Done. No more said.
