Did you know its less than 5 weeks until Christmas? I actually didn’t, I have been blissfully plodding my way through the year thinking ‘I’ve got ages yet’ and then this morning whilst looking at my calendar for something else I spotted the date and panic set in, I hadn’t even started my Christmas shopping and worse than that, I haven’t even got a clue what I want to get for anyone.
With this in mind after dropping Little Bean at pre-school, Beanie Boy and I made our way to Queensgate in Peterborough to see if we could get a few ideas and perhaps even make a start. Beanie Boy wasn’t much help because he fell asleep on the way there but when he woke up his face was a picture as he spotted all the lovely Christmas lights and Santa’s grotto which has turned into a chair!?!? Ok so it’s gold but its not exactly exciting! Everywhere we went his little fingers were pointing as he declared “ooooh” and “there” or “whatsat” – perfect!
We were only in town for 90 minutes but I’m proud to say that I managed to buy three, yes THREE Christmas presents. I still have a long way to go but it’s a start!! When did you start your Christmas shopping? Or have you already finished?
