Christmas shopping experiences (sorry SF)

I went to Lakeside last night and was amazed how easy it was to park the car and at the lack of queues in the shops. I was in and out of there pretty easy. I had to go buy bedsheets and duvet covers of all things, and was dreading it, but needed to do it, but was out of there in 45 minutes. I did go into Debenhams and buy a couple of bras that cost an astonishing £45. I about did a u-turn, but thought I'd give them a try. They better fit!:laugh: I'll be going into Romford this week though to finish. I love going there at Christmas and walking around the market in the cold with all the atmosphere, it's great. I have to buy my best friend a present and have no idea what to buy her, so if anyone has any ideas, they would be most welcome. Jewellery and CDs are out BTW.

From what i heard on the radio last night, people arent spending as much this Christmas ... which could be why the queues werent there ???

My shopping has mainly been done online. Everything for Mr.B has been bought online, and a few other bits and bobs.

I went into Woolworths yesterday in the village to get some chocs for Mr.B's family (we are seeing them on Sat) and there wasnt a queue at all. I was shocked. I thought i would spend my whole lunch hour standing in line !!

I'm not perfect, but im so close it scares me

They did say on TV that online shopping was the way a lot of people are going this year. It certainly beats wandering round the shops in the cold and a lot of the stuff can be got cheaper.

I went online to order an Amazon gift voucher to send to someone for Christmas, and guess what, they won't send them between 21 Dec and 3 Jan. What the ...

I'm afraid, I like the thrill of going to the shops.

Mine is almost done now.

I like going round the shops to choose presents but I very rarely buy them in the shops as I can usually get them cheaper online

I hate shopping for others because I can't think of what they want. I hate those who say 'I don't know' because I don't know myself. arhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I hate christmas.

Well I've done all my shopping and haven't even gone overdrawn! When I get my wages on Friday I wont be blowing them on a mad rush for presents and spending too much.

Why do people look at you as though you are from another planet when you say you are all ready for Christmas - is it a crime to be organised? is it more daring and sexy to be unorganised and so selfish that you are going to rush out two days before Christmas to buy all your presents, cos quite frankly you couldn't be arsed to think of anyone except yourself until the eleventh hour?!? that's what I'd like to know!

Well I've done all mine now Dol and all on a budget too Big Grin I don't think I've spent more than a tenner on any of them this year. Well, we bought a car so we were broke and anyway the kids won't even remember what anyone bought them a couple of days after Christmas.

I'm usually the disorganised one who rushes out at the last minute but it's not cos I think it's cool to be like that. I don't look down on people that can get their heads round it early on - I admire them and feel inadequate for being like I am. I'm usually hanging on for people to let me know what the kids want or already have but this year I've just gone for it and if they've already got it or didn't want it then "tough" Big Grin
