If you don't get out early in the morning, then parking and shopping can be a bit of a hassle, even in Adelaide. No one likes to wait and queue when there is Christmas to prepare! I have all my presents now and it was an easy shop in town on Wednesday but the shops are getting busier and busier and the pressure is starting to build. I am still cooking. Yesterday was the potted cheese and today it is the shortbread. Tomorrow will be other biscuits and then I shall do the baked ricotta and the savouries. It's busy yes, but I keep adding Christmas things to my home and I am relieved the presents are all wrapped. We go for bags in our family. Gotta love those Christmas bags!
