Christmas Journal Day 7

And another day of my Christmas journal. Yesterday's prompt was all about Christmas shopping: what you're buying, if you are a person who love the busy shops at Christmas or if you hate all the hunting for carparking spaces, the queuing in the shops etc. If you have bought everything well in advance, or of you're there with panic in your eyes, hunting the shops the day before Christmas.

I definitely do not like the queues in the shops. It gets me very impatient. LOL! And compared to what I'm used to from Sweden, the shops are so much more busy (and so much earlier before Christmas) in England than they are in Sweden. So we try our very best to get our Christmas shopping done early.

We actually bought the first present in early September (!!) but that was only because we ran into something good for my brother just by pure chance. Normally we don't start until mid October or so. Really struggled with some presents for dad as I was determind NOT to "get something just because", but I wanted something that really was good and that he needed/wanted. However I'm pleased to say that after 2 months (!!) of thinking we have finally come up with some things for him and the last one (mail-order) arrived here on Tuesday.

Back to my journal page... I have included a list of the presents we're giving, which is tucked in beind the photo. Handy to have for next year, so it might be something I will start doing ---> making a note every year what we gave everyone.

I have actually *just* finished my page for today too. Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to take photos yet. So that will have to wait until tomorrow. But I can tell you that it was lots of fun to do and there are lots of little squares involved...
