I think it should be, judging by the number of people in town and in the supermarket today!
Why do people buy so much “stuff” at Christmas? I have seen people with bags and bags humping them through town, and trolley’s stacked high in the supermarket. Mainly of booze I have to say. My un-scientific survey says that for some reason, normal families turn into raging alcoholics at Christmas time. There are at least two more weekends until Christmas, goodness knows how bad it is going to get! Maybe it will just get better as folks have done all their shopping today? I can dream!
So, today was shopping, hair done, eat, shopping, eat. I did a couple of town shops first thing – madness! The brass band in the middle of a busy shopping street was ridiculous, and there was a duck (maybe a goose) wandering about with some tinsel around it’s neck. Hello? I took refuge in the hairdressers and sat their for two and a half hours whilst I was coloured, cut, dried and ironed. Lovely.
By the time I got to the supermarket I was starving, so had a smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwich and coffee before I started. Then I did the shopping, the queues were stupid – three deep in most places. I finally landed home six hours after I left! Dinner – prawn curry and stir fry vegetables. Lovely.
Tonight – Strictly! 🙂 Tomorrow – who knows!
Have a wonderful Sunday.
