    Weekend

    Another week gone. Time is flying.

    Anyway - have a nice weekend everyone.

    Gents - if any of you are being dragged XMas shopping tomorrow (like me) then I wish you good luck.

    Ladies - if any of you are dragging your other halves XMas shopping tomorrow then please have patience with them.

    :-)

    Still - a train journey to Cardiff, some shopping, lunch in Jamie's Italian and then more shopping won't be that bad now that the new John Lewis has opened. I'll hide in the cafe if I need a break :-)

    Have a nice weekend.

    GJE

    That sounds like something straight out of a horror movie!

    See that's how I'd do my shopping, given half the chance, but no.. apparently it's not in the festive spirit to do that. Apparently you have to spend an hour queuing to get into the carpark then a further hour trying to get from the carpark to the shops to then spend another hour at the cash desk while the sales assistant talks to her friends, answers her phone and then looks at you like you've just dropped out of a donkeys bottom when you want to pay cash rather than credit card.

    I hate shopping !!

    Women are strange!

    I do all mine online, dont see any reason to brave the hoards in the shops when you dont have to
    Even if a wife/girlfriend wanted to go shopping, there is no way on earth id go with them

    Weekends are meant for important things, like football and beer, which is mostly what I'll be doing with mine

    You obviously don't have one if you think you'd get away with that!

    Done my Christmas shopping only had one present to buy. So I can now relax and take it easy as I have no decorations put up either.

    I'll admit to enjoying that bit. Our house looks like Santa's grotto... but lacking the presents obviously

    Aren't they kinda crucial to the grotto look?
