go with the flowchart at christmas

Stuck for ideas this Christmas?

Apart from deliberating between a new Christmas toy (Android vs. iOS in my case!), I found this really amusing this afternoon.

As the high streets around the country become more and more crowded  as each weekend approaches, my head becomes increasingly manic with thoughts and ideas for loved ones.  Walking down Oxford Street at any weekend can be nerve wracking as you pigeon step between the crowds, let alone when Christmas is looming!

Before all of that, you have to decide what to get and for who!  Internet shopping has certainly provided some alternative to entering the nightmare of a high street, but even that can drive you insane with endless choices.  Indeed, I have been utilising the interweb to search high and low for extra special gifts for my loved one, but heck is it tough!  The stress alone at this time of year, I’d like to see the stats for people admitted to A&E for high blood pressure!

Maybe a flowchart will help us all out in the holiday season or at least prevent us getting admitted and provide some much needed light relief!

P.S. What should I go for Android or iPhone?  It’s driving me insane!


hear them roar!

So Christmas is upon us again and for those that hate the whole fanfare with supermarkets advertising ever earlier it can be a stressful time. Last minute buying presents, wrapping hastily and then there is the hassle of writing all those cards to maintain the social etiquette of such an austere holiday season, though let’s remember it is the day of Christ’s birth.

With Christmas comes New Year’s celebrations, making a whole week of festivities to end the year, which in turn means lots of parties to attend and organise or just indulge in.  The thing I find funny is what my parents and I suppose many others would do.  Sure, they’d send out Christmas cards to all friends and family, but if they got a card from an unexpected somebody not on their list, they’d have to hurry to send one back, even be it on Christmas eve!

It was always a struggle to find Christmas cards that did not look tacky and cheap, yet considered, affordable and pretty, but most of all unique, so that you didn’t send out the same one you received from anybody!

So it brings me extreme pleasure to present to you something that I mentioned in a previous post.  My friends have finally got online with their personalised stationery site – perfect for sending out hand drawn invitations and thank you’s over the festive season!  What is even more impressive is the Santa illustration and the snowman for their selection of Christmas cards, a must see if you don’t believe me.  I will certainly be sending out a few of these with their whimsical designs, I think they’re the perfect antidote to the garish, mass produced dross you see around nowadays.
