Ha ha ha! You wouldn't want me for a mum. My girls (15 and 10) get no presents from me for Christmas and birthdays on the grounds they have enough stuff and don't need any more. They don't go to the shops with me as they have learnt from an early age that other than essentials, I only allow window shopping. Nope, this family doesn't do 'stuff'. For example, we have only CRT TVs at home as they work perfectly well and I'm too tight to shell out hard cash for the fancy ones.
Kidding aside, we are all fellow travellers on our journey to the grave and there's no harm in helping others from the Third World. Heck, we might even accrue some credits on our karma.
