Only the 2nd day of advent and the 4 year old has ate everyones chocolates for day 19. Emails received trying to persuade me to buy things; 5 Things bought, Village Shop, more biscuits, milk, sweeties and picked up right size nappies, Country Quality, sausages, brisket and eggs, Bakery, 2 loaves and mince pies, Bramleys, fruit, Little people Company, stocking fillers and present JP. Christmas presents from fayre at Carmella's house and more presents from Clock Tower Clothing. (Watch out Clemmie) Things cancelled, 2 Things eaten, Finished up Brocolli soup, finished up pie this time with gravy, celeriac and potato mash and gravy. The dog ate my mince pie. I had a fun time today going shopping with Radio Gloucestershire, interviewed by lovely lovely girl Xenia. We started off with a cappucino in Hobbs and then buying some bread. We then went to the Little people company where I got great stocking fillers for the kids and dolls house people including a baby for JP. We then headed to the butchers and Bramleys. I am really enjoying chatting to people about my plight and trying to answer questions like "do you want to see the supermarkets shut down" and confessing my greatest challenge of keeping my Mother from going to John Lewis this christmas. I then headed home to finish up the soup with Mum and the kids and returned to Nailsworth for some more Christmas Shopping. We headed to the Fletcher household where they were selling gifts, lovely Alice bits and delicious mince pies and mulled cider. I got a wind up radio for the boy and accidently bought everything else for me or loose presents that were irresistible and will do for someone. We then headed to Clock Tower clothing where we got something for Pa, Granny of 87, an umbrella for B's stocking as requested, and some tights for me black and mushroom (hopefully not looking like dodgy tan tights). We watched B's brilliant ballet show tonight in Stroud, so fantastic, don't think I'll ever let her leave.
