I'm off to the shops with Mum, to see what can be found in the Sales this year... The New Year Sales seem to start earlier every year, some even before Christmas... I'm leaving in 5 minutes, I better get ready!!!I'll let you all know if I find anything interesting there!

The post-Christmas sales are really popular here and it is a good time to go shopping since Wellington gets pretty empty at this time.

But I found some parents the other day who were just giving their children vouchers for Christmas so they can go shopping for what they want in the Boxing Day sales. It is a good idea in one way, but when it comes to children and the spirit of Christmas, is it just giving for the sake of giving rather than trying to choose something special? Or is it just prudence? I am imagining opening presents as a child and saying, oh yay, another voucher!

Liverpool was anything but empty this morning, the shops were very crowded and very hot... but I did find a couple of very nice tops at £5 each, and a lovely black and white dress...

Vouchers for Christmas aren't really my thing, I like the whole thing of choosing gifts for people. With smaller children I can't imagine doing that at all, though I suspect it has some merit as children move through their teens and become increasingly difficult to buy for...
