…and it’s beginning to stress me!
Christmas, at the time of writing, is just over three weeks away and I have bought very little in the way of presents. While this isn’t completely out of character for me, the thing that is really bothering me is a lack of a list of things to buy!
Last year, and admitedly for the first time ever, I was very organised. So much so that I even had (please keep this a secret between the two of us) an Excel Spreadsheet with items to buy and bought, where the gifts came from, who they were for, and whether or not they had been delivered! It all worked like clockwork and I think I had all of my Chrsitmas pressies bought by mid December. This year, I am afraid to say it’s going to be a different story. Inspiration for gifts is sadly lacking and I’m struggling to come up with good gift ideas.In my defence, I am probably causing a similar amount of grief to the people who are buying for me. Whenever anyone asks what I would like for Christmas I usually say “…I don’t need anything…” - and then watch the frustration spread across their face. While it seems like I’m just being difficult, I really don’t need anything new! It almost brings up that eternal festive dilemma…what do you get the man who has everything?
The answer to that is a simple one - Angelina Jolie!
