What a hideous day! It's bastard freezing out there & I only just managed to dash outside to pose for these pictures before the heavens opened, hence the even more gormless facial expression than usual.
On Monday I woke up in a blind panic after realising it was Xmas day in a week and I'd done bugger all about it. After a work out and a gallon of tea I calmed down, got dressed, made a list and walked into town. Within a couple of hours I'd sorted gifts for the five people I had to buy for (thank you, charity shops, a year's worth of Boots' Advantage card points & good old Walsall market), purchased brown paper & string from Poundland and snapped up some charity greetings cards marked down by 75%.

Leaving me time to treat myself to a huge new ethnic cuff (for a whopping £2 off the market.)
And find some discounted beach reading from Acorns Hospice (£2.80, the lot).
