    I always have a day where I go and get all my shopping bits and bobs - this year I'm going a bit later on 15th December. Woohoo!

    I love Christmas.

    Online shopping!! You can browse and browse and find the cheapest bargains and no oap's, no screaming children, no chavs, no fighting over "the last one"! It's amazing!!

    Although I am contemplating running into Birmingham Bullring for late night shopping tonight!

    Well done Beks - mission complete.

    I've decided not to buy for people this year - instead, I'm making everyone a box of homemade chocolates... I must be mad. Did my first test batch last night (first time ever!) and apparently they were yummy. Hope my family and friends appreciate the effort :) haha x

    Now that to me would mean so much more than some of the crap people buy each other...you have taken the time and the effort and I am sure they will be delighted and it gets back to the traditional christmas of giving something from the heart...well done to you...xx

    Christmas cut backs

    I've suggested to my family that we keep the spending down this year.
    Most of mine will be home made foodie pressies.
    Orange marmalade with whisky
    Christmas chutney with apple and cranberries.
    Infused wine vinegars and home made
    truffles. Lavender bags made with lavender from Provence for the non-foody people.
    Mostly all made now, just need to make them look festive.

    Have just booked my online grocery shopping to be delivered on 23rd. December.I seem to have ordered enough food and drink for an army as usual !!!
    Sorry to mention the F word.............:xmastree:
