Busy week

The time seems to be flying by and we are heading at break neck speed into Christmas. I sat up a couple of nights ago with my finger poised on the enter key in an effort get get myself a Tesco Delivery slot on the 23rd of December. The second my PC time said 12 I hit the button only to find every single slot for the day had been sold out!! There must have been hundreds of us sitting there with fingers poised! I have decided to stick with the slot I had snagged for the 22nd.

Work has been a nightmare, so much going on that I just don't know where I am going next. Today we have been all over the place and next looks like it may be more of the same with the addition of Christmas functions in the evenings. I am so glad that I have a few days off over the Christmas to chill out.

The house is a tip and there is 'stuff' all over the place, so i will have to try and sort that out tomorrow, I have decided that I hate shopping so I don't really want to join in the throng of people all battling around the shops. I really want to go to Poundland to get some decorations for the office (because both poundland and I are 'cheap')

I have been spoilt by some online friends who I have entered into an Advent swap with. So since the beginning of the month I have had a cute little parcel to open, its a four way swap so we have decided to split it so that we all send parcels to each other. Its really great to open my own personal advent calendar every morning!!!!

So I hope you all have a great weekend and that you don't work too hard!!

I love Christmas sans the shopping and have made a point of only buying for immmediate family. Also, it just doesn't seem to make sense going in debt every year.

Interesting that you have to buy your time slot over in the UK. Good luck on the 22nd! And I second David on the not going in debt buying gifts.
