Yes, it's been a while.........

been busy with bits and bobs and my blogging mojo just wasn't there.

I am hoping to post something every day this month, even if it's just a Christmas song.  I can say I am more or less done with my Christmas shopping.  I have discovered I LOVE online shopping, as the older I get the more I dislike crowds in the stores.  Dd and I went shopping a week gone Monday and the mall was so busy, which surprised me.  I guess gone are the days where people work Monday through Friday from 9 am until 5 pm?

Here is a Christmas song for today:




I will be back tomorrow with more thoughts and music.

I like online shopping too, and if the shipping is free, that is even better. I hate crowds at the malls and I'm beginning to think nobody works as it seems no matter the time of day there are huge crowds and the roads are full.

Good to hear from you Gill.

Nice to see a post from you. I don't do online shopping, but I don't do crowds well either. I think I may have to look into shopping that way.

God bless.

Welcome back. I think we all go through the times when we just can't think of anything we want to share.

Have to say, though we do use on line shopping, it's only if we really can't get what we want locally. It can take from three days to three months to come and can cost more in postage than the item is worth. maybe that's a good thing! Saves me clicking on send too often

I actually prefer online shopping as well -- they are never "out" of anything! I also try to purchase from places where there is a physical store closeby so that returns are easy and with my group, there are ALWAYS returns!

It's so good to see you back blogging Gil. I agree with shopping. Not enjoyable for me anymore so I do a lot online and with gift cards.
Blessings,
Betsy

Nice to see you back :-)

Yep, I've done most of my shopping online this year, hate crowds, don't much like shopping to be honest, despite what my husband thinks!

I am not a fan of online shopping, I like to feel the quality of the goods. Although I am not a fan of crowds either...

Welcome back!
I like having the option of online shopping. If Hubby is working long hours I can do a food shop and have it delivered without costing him precious family time hours.

Welcome back. We missed you. Yes online shopping is great. I still tend to go in early get what I need and avoid the shopping centres during the silly season

Welcome back. I am also a fan of online shopping. Just so much easier.

Welcome back, Gill. I've been having some problems with online deliveries so I am shopping mostly in person for now.

Good to see you back Gill! I never do online shopping. I am a weird size so need to try on things in person. I don't like crowds, makes you wonder if people are shopping at all hours and not working, how can they afford to shop?
