It's that time of the year when all good plans go terribly wrong - in the best possible way. Christmas shopping was supposed to be done and finished by now - but it isn't. I never have an action plan to just get what I want and leave - no, I have to wander around in a daze with no idea of what I'm doing.
The food I've bought with the intention of saving for the big day has been attacked and crumbs remain.
The shops all look terribly festive - each trying to out-do each other and grab your attention - except mine. I just wander from shop to shop, no worse off but coming home with the frustration of knowing I have to go back and do it all again - hopefully buying that perfect gift. I wouldn't have it any other way.
