Yes, that's right, I said it. Today was my first official day of Christmas shopping. I start early every year to a) Beat the rush (which avoids all the manic people crushing each other to get to the bargains), b) Because I have quite a lot of work in December and c) It is my birthday in December so I want to celebrate it (and my Christmas Do's) without fretting about all the things I have yet to do. I am all organised with my shopping vouchers (Amazon and Love to Shop for presents and M&S for the Christmas food), but because I have work and NaNoWriMo in November, I feel I may have to be especially organised this year. My present buying list is halved after today, but I won't feel relaxed until they are all bought.
I am now at 6,537 words for NaNoWriMo (that's four chapters in total) and I am hoping to get some more written tomorrow morning before I go see the girls in the afternoon. Fingers crossed.
