So another year has spun around and it’s Christmas time again. This morning I headed into the city centre. Traffic was light so I was all parked up just before eight o’clock and I started the day ensconced in a cosy café (Hatch & Sons), breakfasting on a scrumptious date scone and coffee.
I was on a mission to buy a present for the most important person in my life. Who? Me, of course! No, I am not a narcissist, it’s just the way things are. And, yes, I will be wrapping it up! Self gifting is the best as you always get exactly what you want. Early morning on Christmas Eve is an excellent time to shop: many stores open early, the city doesn’t get busy until after ten, and best of all merchandise is reduced as most sales now effectively begin before the traditional post-Christmas off.
I bought a two-tone (grey and olive-green) cashmere jumper by Lucy Nagle. I’ve been eyeing it for some time so I was pretty pleased that there was still one left in my size. So pleased that I ended up buying myself two other presents. One was a lipstick, which is a buy that is beyond bonkers as I rarely wear lipstick plus I already have lots of lipsticks in many differing shades. The other was Guardian Weekend’s beauty columnist Sali Hughes’s book ‘Pretty Honest’ billed as: ‘the straight-taking beauty companion’.
I was back home before noon to start on the remaining few things I need to do before the ‘big day’. Christmas divides the masses, people either love or loathe it. I don’t loathe it but still and all it’s not my favourite time of year but that’s not going to prevent me enjoying tomorrow. Wherever you are, if you celebrate it, I wish you a happy and peaceful Christmas and if you don’t I wish you a Happy Holiday.
