Drive into Parramatta early enough to beat the traffic ... good. Shops not open yet ... priceless.
Bright spark that I am I decided to get there at 9am, figuring I'd beat everyone there. And I did, including the shop owners. Sundays the shops open at 10 apparently, even 2 and a half weeks before Christmas.
So, I treated myself to a Bacon and Egg McMuffin and a hash brown (I went to the gym yesterday, it's all about balance). Then wandered about for a bit until the shops opened. By the time 10:00 came there were more people about, probably about 10 people waiting outside the shop I was waiting for.
Got a couple of presents ticked off. Buying presents is hard, I really really want the person I am buying for to like their presents. It's like if they don't like the present then they will think I don't love them enough, that I wasn't able to divine the exact present they would love the most. Silly really. But at least I know it's silly, so that's a step in the right direction. :)
