I'm so glad I have your approval Merc.

27 days to go!

You'd better get started then classic.

We got presents for my Dad and his wife and my brother and his wife yesterday. Kids are taken care of more or less, so all we have to do is get our camera and we're more or less done.

It is now December (my time) so I am willing to acknowledge the approach of the merchandising season.

In case you didn't notice, the merchandising season has well and truly started...with very poor results. Hence all the 'pre-christmas' sales on atm, which I admit I'm enjoying.

25 days to go!

There's one group that're spending money this year, and they're the ones with no mortgage, no kids and no other financial commitments. Generally 20 - 30 yr old singles or couples with decent jobs but no investments.

The 20yr olds here are, I believe, typically debt laden with a propensity to have overextended themselves with student loans and Credit card debt.

So, Ali,
Is your changing color scheme like the Terror Alert Level?

Very funny Pie. But no, I just thought I'd use a different 'christmassy' colour every 10 days. As people catch on they realise there are less and less days to go.

In fact, there's only...

24 days to go!

Pretty soon I'll be onto the next colour. I think it'll be silver.

So, any of you other slackos started shopping for anything other than Cellar SS yet?
