I’ve started Christmas shopping!!!!
I know, I know, TEN, ten months too early, but I couldn’t resist.
You see, what I do is, I make a list (I make a lot of lists, I have lists for shopping, for meals, for prices, for University and for Steve), a list of everyone’s name in date order of their birthdays and then Christmas. Throughout the year a buy and make little bits and pieces for people that I think they would like and I keep it for said birthday or Christmas.
But I used to end up buying so much that I had forgotten what I had got everyone and I was all in a muddle, so I made my list. Now I can keep track of what I have bought people and who I still have to buy or make for.
Plus I keep it simple. “Something you want, something you need, something homemade and something to read”
With my sister literally weeks from popping with my second niece, her second daughter, I have even more things to make and buy as nine (nine!) people we know are having babies this year. That’s a lot of things to make and buy…
