I don’t enjoy Christmas shopping much at all, I hate the pressure of having to buy things for that particular day (does that sound Ebenezer like?), but as I’m now feeling quite Christmassy and time is flying by, I decided to make a start on my Christmas shopping this weekend.
I headed out nice and early to beat the crowds, armed with my carefully planned lists I was confident on getting quite a bit done. Instead I only managed to get 2 gifts which is quite a long way off target - how I miss the UK high street at Christmas especially :( . I got drenched too when the heavens opened.
On Sunday I had a much more successful shop thanks to the internet. How nice it is being able to sit in your slippers and click away, instead of battling with crowds and shop assistants. I managed to get most of my shopping finished thanks to Amazon UK and Marks and sparks – all free delivery too, this way I don’t have to carry the stuff in my luggage either when I go back for Christmas. Perfect!
I just need to get a couple more things for people here now (including OH – help!) and I’m done. Unfortunately internet shopping here isn’t very big yet so I’ll have to brave the shops once more. Wish me luck :)
