Once again, christmas madness has descended upon the UK. Just try shopping anytime after about 11:45 AM and see how stressed you get. So this morning, I begged off early from my voluntary work since my tutor was off ill anyhow, and dove into some much needed shopping. It's twice as important to be organised when you have to ship your presents abroad (this year's recommended send-by date is December 6th, for anyone interested!) And let's be honest, you can't get everything online so you're going to have to face those shops at some point.

So just do it - book or plead for a few mornings off, haul yourself outta bed early and save yourself a lot of grief. My plan is to get everything done in the next week or so, so I can actually sit back and relax in the two weeks leading up to christmas day getting fat on homemade shortbread while frazzled shoppers spend way over their budget, desperate to have something to wrap.

On the other hand, I've been so preoccupied with working, studying and worrying about postal deadlines that I completely forgot to plan anything for my birthday on Sunday. Maybe the discovery that I was born on the same day as Bette Midler has subconsciously disturbed me more than I thought...

So, I do not really imagine this is likely to have success.
