I managed to wrap some of my presents today, which is just as well as Gordon has suggested we go ‘Christmas shopping’ tomorrow. I use the term loosely since most of the shopping has been taken care of by me over the past few weeks. What he’s hoping for, I suspect, is an idea of what I’d like as a present, but to be absolutely honest there isn’t much I actually need or want especially since the arrival of my tablet, which I love and use often.
I’m using it at the moment to stop myself getting bored at the Parish Council Meeting! Gordon is chairman and takes it all very seriously, but I’ve only come to keep him company. The fact that the annual parish council trip to the pub for a Christmas drink is entirely coincidental. The Church Hall is cold and stuffy, smells damp and is making my nose run, but I suppose sacrifices need to be made.
