If you are anything like me then I suspect most of the shopping is done.
Judicious use of vouchers has really reduced my outlay.
Take the beginning of the month for example. The Chap is getting a SamsungTab 3 retails for £299.
I managed to get it for £235. By using my tesco club card vouchers and then buying it online to get an extra £20 off, plus another tender as it was my first online Tesco shop. I only had to wait two days, and considering it is still only November that's no hardship.
I have also picked up a couple of surprises, he knows nothing about. The Chap is not at all curious so I am not expecting him to go a searching. But, I am keen to know what his Christmas ideas are for me. He has not asked for any suggestiones and never visits shops. I have arranged all his family's gifts.
So I am currently reviewing all post office cards saying there is a parcel waiting for him and as the sorting office is 200 yardsfrom my office have also been very helpful by picking them all up for him. If I am being given a Return of the Jedi poster I shall be most unhappy.
Also TC if you are reading (which he never does) any cleaning or cooking implement also comes under the "that is a shit present" heading.
As it is our first proper Christmas living together I have invested in a special Christmas decoration that the cats cannot destroy.
Isn't he just precious.
So many nice comments from my lovely new colleagues.
And finally I had my 3 month appraisal (1 and a half months late, but hey who is counting.) and it went so very well. What a change 12 months has brought.. I am now happier, closer to home and saving a bloody fortune walking to work, not to mention 3 and a half hours better off every day.
Whoop de whoop! Wonder what next year will bring?
