Where Did the Year Go?
Where did 2009 go?
It feels like only yesterday I was waking up on January 1st and now its December 23rd. Christmas Eve Eve.
Anyway, this year Mr.P and I were organised. We sat up on Friday night writing a list of every person we needed to buy for. Then we wrote in those presents that we already had. We then called Mr.P's mum to get ideas for what to get his brothers and sisters. We wrote down exactly what we wanted to get each person, so when we got to the shops on Saturday morning there was no wasting time.
Thankfully we parked in a good spot and came up from the car-park to find we were right near three shops we needed to go too and the other one was around the corner. Most people wanted gift vouchers for certain stores, so that made it a bit easier. I hate just giving gift vouchers though, it just feels so in-personal to me, so we got everyone their requested vouchers and then bought everyone a small and cheap novelty gift as well, something to make them laugh. Christmas morning is going to be lots of fun!
So we got the shopping out of the way in record time, 2 hours exactly. That just left the pet shop. Which we decided to go to on Sunday, owing to the fact we went the wrong way out of the shopping centre to get to the pet store and didn't realise until we were halfway home! So we just went home. And went to the pet shop on Sunday. But that's a whole nother post. And I'll post about it tomorrow. When I have the day off.
Have you got all of your shopping done yet? Anything exciting you're giving for Christmas this year?
