Oh my god, am so very very scared! I am going xmas shopping on saturday, my first proper hit at xmas this year and I havent even made a list yet. Why can't I be dewdrop? angry
Are the shops going to be really busy? Am I going to get stressed and leave with nothing?

My list is
1) do one massive shopping trip probably last weekend before Xmas.
2) wrap presents
3) post presents
4) go to PILs and be fed and watered for 5 days so no food to buy for us

It's a bit of an aside, but what is a portable north pole?

I don't like lists because I never follow them. Your list terrifies me!

I was wondering the same as attheendoftheday - are those stocking presents?

Portable North Pole is the Santa videos for children that are personalised they are brilliant!!smile
