Yesterday Mr Dunnit and I shopped. We went to Basingstoke, got there about 3pm, parked without difficulty, and then joined the dwindling crowds. Because I have left it later than I like to, I did have some ideas, so we actually did pretty well, and I think I can handle the rest in fits and starts! Although I did discover that just wandering around looking at stuff, without a clue what to buy for someone (anyone!) is very very bad. All I seem to see is stuff that I'd like very much. And that was without dragging him around Paperchase too. I'm getting strong in my old age! And slow apparently, I really need a week off. Anyone else - I could write you a note!

Are we nearly there yet?
Oh boy, there's still a lot to be done in this house before Christmas takes hold. You know there's the point where it's easier to keep going because you know it'll work out? Well, I'm not there yet, although I think we're at the point of no return....at least we'll have gifts for our family and friends - and if I concentrate really hard, I may even get some cards posted. See, I know lots of people now don't bother with cards, or send e cards, but I can't break the habit...despite the rush and the pressure and the writing in them part of it, I love to make cards and I love to receive them. So I judge that others do too.
