Impending

28Sep12

“I’m going into Norwich this morning,” I said to Mrs R. before she went to work. “Is there anything you need?”

“No, but you could get started on the Christmas shopping,” she nonchalantly replied.

What? It’s only September!

There was a pause.

“Well, actually I’m only really going in for a dental appointment. I wasn’t really planning to visit the shops,” I burbled. “I just thought that if there was anything important you really needed…”

I think I got away with that one. But I’m sure it’s going to come round again.

    Started the Christmas shopping on Saturday (11 large tubs of sweets for various friends and family) since Tesco had them priced at £4 a tin.
    So the saving of £11 seemed to be worth the “Oh my Goodness it is only September!!” guilt trip.
    Dont think the rest will be done until November. After all who is willing to write a letter to Santa with a Christmas list on it much before November

    On a visit to my good lady’s sister last week, I was impressed that she has all of her 2012 Christmas shopping completed. And wrapped.

  3. I need to start thinking about doing mine, got loads of people to buy for. Also have Birthdays before and after.

  4. Not sure what country I’ll be in for christmas. Should probably figure this out first really…
