Day 789

Borrowed from Google Images


Christmas shopping!

Yep, finally started.

I drove to the mall at opening and went straight to the things I knew I was getting.  There were no crowds, no Sunday shufflers, no pushy foreign sales person trying to catch my eye and lure me to the exotic beauty products. I was safe!

I grabbed the goods on my list and carried them straight to the car.

I then returned for things more spur of the moment, and delighted in the ease of the decision making process.  I found stuff that was just perfect for my kids. I again went to the car to secure my treasure in the safety of the boot.

Then it was back again for some mindless meandering with a bit of a thoughtful browse thrown in.  Again I returned to the car with more bags and marveled at the loveliness of my load.  And all the while I hadn't even noticed that the mall was full and that shoppers were clogging up alley ways and congesting the escalators.  I was so immersed in a Leanne bubble that crowds which would normally peeve me, just passed me by with not so much as a glance.

It was a very pleasant experience!!

The good news is that my kids are done.

The bad news is I still have about 15 other people to buy for ...

Next Sunday perhaps?

  1. Glad you had a good time and that your kids are done.

    I've just realised that I have 6 kids to buy for before 17th of December. And probably my aunt, uncle and Nana as well. I better get moving.

    Good luck with the rest of your gift buying. I hope it all goes as well as today's did.
