Christmas Is Coming!

This week has been a ridiculously busy week in work for me, so I am now really pleased for a weekend off.   I remember having a rather relaxing day on Sunday at the start of this week, it was really lovely, caught up with some TV programmes, X Factor, Hollyoaks that sort of thing, did a bit of colouring, it was really nice.   I thought it was going to be a bit quieter this week, for some silly reason, but it really wasn't.   Basically, the entirety of my shift at work on Monday was spent it on the Buy and Collect department, from the moment we opened at 9am, till I finished at 1.45pm.   It was crazy.   Customer after customer collecting their orders, every one of them wanting open them up and check them, and not everyone usually does that.   They did that day, which is good of course because they know what they have paid for is what they wanted, which is fine.   It is very time-consuming though.  

So that was the same for Tuesday, Wednesday and most of Thursday as well this week.   I felt as though I was bouncing off the walls on more than one occasion.

Welcome to December in retail...Woohoo!!!...

Which leads on to yesterday which was really weird, because it was dead in store.   We obviously had customers in, but compared to the rest of the week it was just a bit more...steady, I guess.   It was so quiet in fact, and this might sound a bit 'sad' to some of you, but I got my duster out and started dusting my glass department with precision, because I love a sparkly glass, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.   I filled it up as well.   So with genuine honesty here, I found it very therapeutic.

Really, the last two weeks have been a bit crazy for me, in work mostly, but also, I did have a little incident on Tuesday when I got home.... my tooth split!   I hate dentists, I really do.   Though to be fair my dentist (Oasis) were really good because as soon as it happened I got straight on the phone and got an emergency appointment for the following day before I started work.   They fitted a temporary one for me so I wouldn't lose it.   Then they proceeded to inform me that I will need root canal treatment.   Great, just what I have always wanted.   Might be leaving that till after Christmas.

The one thing I have really pleased about is my Christmas shopping seems to be coming along rather nicely.   This is mostly thanks to Amazon and their 'daily deals' as well as their Black Friday/ Cyber Monday deals.   I think really, the main chunk of my Christmas shopping has been done now, there's only a few people left to buy for, whereas this time last year I was a bit behind.   So it seems to be going well at the moment.

As you have probably noticed, with work and one thing and another, my blog has got a little bit neglected.   I am still considering whether to come up with a schedule of some description and fit it in with what hours I am doing at work.   Might be something to look into.   Will I stick with a schedule that is the question!  I might give it a go and see how I get on.   I have also started to come up with different ways I can maybe progress with my blog too.   I haven't got very many ideas yet, but it is early days.  I do still like the way it looks so that's ok, that can stay as it is.   It's more content based really.   I will have to see what I can come up with.

Watch this space!

Thanks for reading!
