    Had a mooch around Worthing this morning. Boots are stacking their shelves with the 3 for 2 Christmas stuff. :D There are selection boxes appearing everywhere and Woolies have the Celebrations plastic bottles out.

    So I nip into Wilkinsons for some dog biscuits and found myself browsing their stack of Christmas cards. They had some nice ones. My hand came within an inch of picking a pack up when I came to my senses and backed away muttering "not till December," over and over again.

    That was a close one.

    Quick go back!

    They are really nice - I got a black hardcover with a dangling Mickey book mark ribbon attached for 3.49 and two soft cover ringbound books for 2.49 each :p015:

    I've heard on this morning's news that Christmas/Holiday shopping (perhaps better said as spending) is expected to be at an all time low. (All time since when, they didn't say).

    Could make for some excellent sales, eh?

    ooh I hope so... I like sales.. nothing better to make you stop feeling guilty on over-spending on something, because it has a 'sale' tag on. LOL
