Christmas Shopping

Okay - we're about a third of the way through our Christmas Shopping. I have gifts for important children, daughter - however - there's still MOTHER, Auntie, Uncle, Brothers and many friends to buy for. Usually I am full of ideas. Everyone is 'phoning me and asking what they should buy for other people - and therefore stealing my ideas!! Marry that with the fact that I have lent my credit card to someone I trust (!) today to do their shopping on line (apparently I'll have the cash by Friday?) - and you can see why I'm in a bit of a pickle. Every year I threaten to start in September - but deep down I must enjoy (in a warped perverse kind of way) the last minute rush - as I always get caught up in it. December as a month runs away all too quickly. Luckily I have no food shopping to do - or cooking - or even a tree to decorate this year - which is a very good thing - because if I did I would now be on my third bottle of prozac and be beating a path to the Surgery to get a repeat prescription.

I may do something on-line later - but perhaps I'll just pop to Kingston tomorrow. I don't even have the usual excuse of being too busy working.

I have to say that if I ever turn into one of those dreadful women who have their home-made Christmas cake and mincemeat prepared by the end of August (no offence) please feel free to either shoot me or take me to a big black man for frolicking and fun - just so that I can get my priorities back into some kind of order :)

I love Christmas xx
