Well, after blogging that I was all in a panic trying to get all my seasonal shopping finished before the Big Day, I have actually done rather well. Today I finished buying all the gifts I needed to get for friends and family for the festive season, except for a few for my hubby, Dale, which I need to order online.
Now all I have to do is wrap this final batch of prezzies and then decorate all my packages with ribbons and bows.
This year I have gone for some very classy wrapping paper in shades that tone in together – gold, bronze and cream – all very rich-looking – with metallic effect and swirley designs of snowflakes and trees. Everything is going to look GORGEOUS under the tree (which I’m hoping Dale will put up and decorate while I’m down South in a couple of weeks time!).
So, now that I’ve finished my shopping and have had a well-earned cup of coffee with a hint of cinnamon, I am going to wrap those gifts and then write my cards, ready for sending them out from next weekend.
Ah! It pays to be organised!
