Not much to report on this week as I'm trying to save money in time for Christmas. I've already done all my shopping without having to leave my computer. Hopefully everyone will get what I ordered, in the right number, delivered to the right address and in time for the festivities. It's a lot easier than daring the crowds on princes Street who all seem to be out shopping with the express purpose of wandering in front of me when I'm on a mission, stopping dead in doorways or walking five abreast and filling the pavement. The only problem with ordering online is that every company seems to have a different style order form calling for valuable wasted minutes as I work out how to use their web page. Some of the companies make it blatantly easy while others seem to have come up with the most frustrating websites going (has a name similar to Pay-Hel) where I have to order each present individually and go through the whole order process again and again and again. Perhaps they miss me visiting their stores.
Off to Nottingham this weekend to visit the family, deliver said presents and to celebrate PC Brothers birthday.
