Christmas shopping has been so much easier this year. I had most of it done a few weeks ago and the last of the items arrived with a couple of days to spare. In the past I used to end up doing it on Christmas Eve, but being in London has made it much easier to keep on top of things and make it stress free.

Granted, Maria helped by pushing me to make a start earlier than I would normally start doing things, but it paid off. All of my presents are already wrapped and in a suitcase at work ready to be taken to Bath. (Weather permitting…)

Interestingly, I didn’t do too much shopping online this year either. Made use of my travel card and having access to various shopping centres in London certainly helped as not knowing how to drive is much less of a hindrance.

Should have moved to London sooner, as its so much easier to get things done here.
