Stuck on what to buy this Christmas?
Christmas is only 13 days away! And I haven’t bought anything yet! Normally, I would have been patting myself on the back by now with everything being bought and hidden away from the kids. Last year, I still went to the shops on the 24th of December for last minute errands. Did I like it? Yes. The shops were not too busy and I was in and out in a flash with my purchases. Will I chance it again in 2019 to brave the shops on 24 December? I’m not entirely sure as this long weekend would be the ideal time for some Christmas shopping.
