Time to put on my thinking cap (Day 19 post)

Christmas is fast approaching as all the catalogues that keep arriving daily in the letterbox remind me.  Most of the shopping centres are decked out with Christmas decorations and Santa's chair is in place waiting for his arrival within the next few days.  I think that  all these hints around me about Christmas are referred to as " the art of persuasion" to act and do my bit for the economy.

So time to compile my Christmas shopping list and head off to the shops to see what I could find.  First stop the local garden centre to look for some inspiration.    It is a pretty place to wander around

But sadly no gift was suitable for those on my list.   This Christmas shopping and thinking is very exhausting so a lunch stop was in order on our way home.

The list will remain in my wallet until  shopping again next week where hopefully I will have a bit more success and be able to cross at least one name off the list.  I think that all those daily catalogues have done their job "as a persuader" as I have been persuaded to jump into action.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all
