    SIHH is the highlight of my press trip calendar. You spend three days getting to look at, and sometimes even touch, some of the most incredible timepieces in a rather sophisticated setting. What’s not to love?

    Much to the constant despair of Kate Donovan, my fabulous deputy editor and RJ’s resident online guru, I am terrible at blogging regularly.

Blogging always feels like it’s the preserve of people with emotional incontinence not a legimate form of journalism.

    Thanks for your comments, Elaine. I'm afraid I can't take credit for the title - that was the work of my brilliant online editor Kate Donovan. However, I'm pleased you like the blog. Totally agree with you about feeling faint and faintly silly - I get that every time I post something. I think the best thing to do is just write and hope for the best.

    Not sure whether your comment means you don't like my present list or you think I'm not going to get them. I think the latter is alas true but if you have better gift suggestions send them over.
