I am pleased to say that with the exception of a few items that cannot be purchased until closer to the day and fresh food, I have finished the Christmas Shopping. Yesterday, Prue had an early appointment , then immediately after we headed off to a nearby shopping mall to purchase D and Prue’s gifts.Although the mall was busy, I was pleasantly surprised that we managed to secure a car parking spot around the perimeter of the centre and not have to resort to parking in one of the large multi- storey car parks. I always find them intimidating and fear for my own safety, as they are dark and quite isolated.
I am never one to pay full retail price for anything, so we settled on the retailer who could offer the best deal. Yes, I am an unashamed bargain hunter and enjoy negotiating the best price LOL I have wanted to replace my kitchen crockery for some time with a white setting and while we were at the mall yesterday, I bought it. Rather I bought two setting as they were each setting for four.They were on sale and I managed to buy the two dinner sets for less than it would normally cost for one. Today, I am going to tidy the kitchen cupboards, throw out the old settings (they are not worth keeping to give to anyone) and replace them with the new ones. I think food always seems more appealing on white china.
I have had some lovely emails this week, including one from the old friend I caught up with a while back.We exchanged some photos from many, many years ago. We looked soooooooooo young. I guess we were LOL
Have a good week-end.
