Welcome to any new readers, as we go into the last 6 shopping days to Christmas Day and as ever seems to be the same every year as we leave it all to the last minute and then wonder where all the time has gone.
Winter has finally arrived in Scotland with the first really cold days and snow (it’s just been wet up to now) so it is starting to look a bit like Xmas now.
Something we had a problem with when spending this time of year in hot countries, could just not get used to seeing Santa Clause all dressed up and sweating in the heat.
Although theirs a lot to be said for it being nice and warm on Xmas day.
As you can imagine it is a manic time for shops at Xmas, but of course with the tough economic times we have had in this part of the world for the past 18 months, it has not been as busy as some previous years.
