I think that's really more my problem, I have a snarly toddler who won't put up with being in a trolley (I'm assuming this is Aussie-speak for a stroller.) He'll do a grocery cart though, because he gets to stand up inside the basket and have a little bit of room to move. That's currently the litmus test for whether I can go to any store or not: do they offer carts? But for hypothetical olden-days Christmas shopping, this would eliminate books, which is usually a large portion of my gift list. And still there would be the issue of buying gifts for the kids themselves. I think we'd have to hire a babysitter. Thank God for the internet.

A trolley is a grocery cart. Fits two midgets in quite nicely.

34 days to go!

I bought my new tree yesterday. I couldn't believe the price of them! We don't have real trees too much over here because the right sort of pine trees don't really grow well. You can just use an ordinary pine tree, but they're not very lush, and some people use sheoaks, which is what we did when I was a kid. They were nice, but getting the needles out of mum's loop pile carpet was a bitch.

I want to put my tree up today, but Mav is telling me it's too early. He could be right, but I still want to anyway.

I put the tree together yesterday. Maybe I'll decorate it today.

Well I'd come except I'm a bit far away to make it on time now I think.

So it's only 1 calendar month till Christmas. I hope all you slackers are starting to take me seriously now. You know that's only 4.3 weeks don't you?
