    Default Christmas rush

    Travelling into town yesterday by bus, a journey that only takes 10 minutes, took nearly 45 minutes. The trail of traffic was snaking along at a stop start snail pace. Where is everyone going? Where are they all going to park when they get into Leam? Its madness.

    I'm in no rush for Christmas, but I have bought Christmas cards all charity ones.

    I've already done my Christmas shopping - just got to buy some cards & a bit of wrapping paper.

    I like to get it of the way early - I'm not really a fan of Christmas shopping crowds.

    Apart from the cards and food, I'll do everything online.

    I usually do a mix of online & high street shopping.

    I noted that it doesn't mention overseas, though I usually post the first week in December for America.

    I use Royal Mail as little as possible these days. Not only is it expensive, I also find it unreliable. In fact, I find it so unreliable that any important transactions I use it for I send by registered post.
