Christmas shopping playlist


Well, it’s only two more shopping days until Christmas. All my presents are bought & wrapped. Those which need to be shipped off to various members of the family are already arrived. Most of the main course foods are done (I’ll spend a little time going through the menu at some point if I can be bothered…). There is, however, a lot of food shopping left to do. I have a list, so I’m ahead of the game. My wife is working tomorrow, which leaves the shopping to me. I’m expecting it to be really busy, what with Christmas Eve falling on a Saturday. Having tonsilitis and a throat which looks like it’s a result of some sort of evil biological experiment, I’m expecting tomorrow’s shopping to be something of a trial of endurance. I’ve decided that the sensible approach is one of taking my time and trying to enjoy the experience. Or at least shut myself off from the rest of the hectic masses… With that in mind, I have spent the last hour or so with a cup of tea and a warming shot of brandy, loading some shopping tunes onto my (non-specific, unbranded, generic) mp3 player.
