After my chores of the horsey and pony variety, I went off to town to try and knock my Christmas shopping on the head. I tell myself that this year I will be organised. So I tidied myself up into clean clothes because apparently I can’t go in my wellies, old jeans and smell of horses!
This Christmas, I hae decided to buy local as much as I can. I don’t want to support Amazon.
I went in to town before the Christmas rush started. I think I did that fairly successfully today.
The light was appalling. The sun didn’t actually appeared today but shop I did, in a very determined fashion and I enjoyed myself passing the time of day with various local shop-keepers.
Eventually I trudged home with my sleigh pretty full of local lovely things which I will wrap up and distribute accordingly.
Mostly, it is mission accomplished. Just a few more little things to get and that’s me, feeling smug until the usual last minute panic!
