Keeping Ahead Of The Game.

Hi,

.

And a really good morning to yourself.

.

It is great here this morning.

There was the usual chilly start to the day, but now we have sunshine and icy blue skies….nice!

.

There are no set plans for us today so far, but if this weather holds then I think we will probably make the most of it and go out to do some shopping.

I have suddenly realised how near we are to Christmas and we need to try and get some of the presents purchased in order to avoid the last minute Xmas scrummage locally, or the equally unpleasant wait to see if presents from the web actually make it to us by Christmas.

.

In the past we have had waits of several weeks for intended presents, which were ordered well before the holiday season, but still arrive with only days to spare.

There have also been occasions when we have had to give up and go to the shops to find alternative gifts, because it eventually became obvious that the intended recipients would go present-free if we did not.

That is the drawback of buying on-line.

.

The other really irritating habit that some on-line sellers have, is to show that the things you wish to order are fully in stock….so you pay for them ….and are later informed that they are not, so you will have to wait for restocking to happen.

The last time they did that to me, it made me feel quite angry and murderous….and that does me no good at all….especially in the season of goodwill to all men!

.

So, there we are then, with a shopping trip to town this afternoon and a hopeful attitude that we will find the majority of the gifts that we need….possibly in a pre-christmas sale!….and if not, then an on-line blitz tomorrow ….with fingers crossed.

.

I don’t know what you have planned, but I hope that it goes well for you.

Take Care,

J,x.
