    Quite fancy the good stuff and then add a cheap supermarket spiced to add to mulled festive drinks.

    El Dorado I reckon.

    It's just under £38 on Amazon at the moment which is about £7 cheaper than usual.

    It's the 12 year you want the 15 year is also supposed to be nice but some reviewers say the 12 is the better of the 2.

    Getting the turkey and ham from M&S this year, a few people have said its good quality but we're used to organic stuff from a farm in Brecon so I'm not so sure.

    This year will be different as my brother won’t be here for Xmas day as his care home have said that no one is allowed out.
    They have been very strict with no visitors and staff have isolated with the residents, but their stance has been good for the residents safety.

    I haven’t been able to take him out since March and only see him by shouting at him through his bedroom window.
    I am now organising a fish n chip supper for all the residents and staff for next Friday, it’s the least I can do, after all the sacrifices that the staff have made.

    My boy is being really creative at the minute. Last weekend he made his own Lego set from various pieces including writing out two books of instructions to go with it, and right now he's drawing his own spot the difference pictures to ask his mum to do.

    Wanna keep encouraging this and gonna buy some stuff to this effect for Christmas, any suggestions?

    My mate has got a son who’s autistic, he gets tools and random odds and bobs for Christmas instead of toys, then builds machines and robots out of them. Obvs not implying your son is similar in any way but if he’s creative, just throw him the B&Q catalogue and ask him to pick his top 10 items.

    He does play the Xbox but it's very limited.

    Some form of tools ain't a bad shout actually. Good skills to learn as well init. Might try get some experiment type things too.

    My Mrs wants an Apple Watch or something, and her hair done, so that’ll be easy enough for me to sort out.

    I’ve asked her for another upgrade for the car, but she’s not happy about more horses.
