... to be jolly, falalalala lalalala!
7 days to Christmas. Have you done your Christmas shopping yet?
I hope you have.
Well, I only started yesterday. I spent 2 hours and managed to buy 4 pressies - would have been 5 if not for the shop not having stocks of one.
It helps if you know what you want to get and where to get them.
I love shopping early in the morning when there isnt much of a crowd. Once it hits lunch hour and the shoppers come in droves,I much prefer to make my way home. Only problem is that many shops only open at 11am, some at 10, so I only have 2 good hours of shopping a day.
I am also one that shops better under pressure ie when I dont have much time left. Makes me less wishy washy. When I shop early I tend to come across other things later which I may feel may make d a better gift. That's me.
Tis is also the season to go on vacations!!
With at least 6 weeks of school vacation for the children, we usually travel at this time of the year.
This year we went to Melbourne, and I managed to get help in planning for my trip from a fellow blogger, Mott. (http://mottisland.com/). Thanks Mott for helping me plan the meals during my trip. I must say: Melbourne has amazing eats!! The range of restaurants and the quality of the food probably helped it to win "The best city to live in" title.
Wishing all a Blessed Christmas. May it be filled with peace, hope, love, laughter and good food!!
