Open house is a little early this week because tomorrow (Thursday) is my one and only Christmas shopping day this year.
I’ll be out early. Literally hitting the town centre at 9am. It’s my one (self-imposed) opportunity to purchase anything non-handmade.
I’ve made my list, and checked it twice!
It’s not a huge list, as I’m sure you’d expect. And it consists of a lot of consumables, again – no surprises there!
Today’s open-house-post isn’t an in-depth explanation on how I do Christmas gifts (there is one to come) but I wanted to start the conversation.
Particularly as (those who saw my Facebook update today will already know…) I saw a billboard advert this morning that kind of depressed me.
A retailer was claiming that this would be a ‘fabulous Christmas’ because you can now order up until 10pm for a next day delivery.
Maybe I’m just in ‘one-of-those’ moods, but I repeat – it depressed me.
Fortunately a day of decluttering, with Gary Vaynerchuk keeping me company on YouTube, lifted my spirits no end.
((Gary Vee always lifts my spirits! (The way he answered the last question 59 minutes in was pure genius). But beware – clicking on any link heading his way may contain colourful language. More colourful that even Sir Bob’s from Monday)).
