Well being one of those people who are organised, getting everything done in ample time (NOT). Yesterday I had to finally get round doing some christmas shopping - if truth be known I hate crowds so have been putting it off for as long as possible, however tomorrow is my last day at work until the 4th Jan I couldn't put it off any longer as needed to get get some pressie for work colleagues and so with a bottle of traquilisers in hand off I went..

It was a stampede and no-one seemed to want to be in the shopping centre, least of all me but I struggled through the crowds smiling through gritted teeth as I was shoved, jostled and queue jumped.

The good news was I got 90% of it done although the last couple of pressies were well lets say desperate choices as I couldn't bear to be with all of these GRUMPY people any longer and was in danger of giving a few people a piece of my mind.

Wish me luck as I go for round 2 on Tuesday then on Wednesday I have to go food shopping but I am tempted to see if any of the local hotels still have reservations left for Christmas lunch mmmmm seems like the better option pass me the phone!!!!!

PS - decsion made I am going to to do ALL next years christmas shopping in February...
