Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I’m not usually all that organised when it comes to holiday shopping, but I’m trying to get it all sorted early this year. I’ve bought a heap of books so I’m off to a good start. I hate going to the shops, especially this time of year. They are always so busy and everything takes soooo much longer than it should. Thank god for online shopping! I don’t know what I did before it was invented?! Oh yeah, that’s right…I didn’t have kids so I could spend an afternoon shopping. Now I shop at 10pm in my pyjamas.
I think books are great gifts! There is a book to suit every person and if you don’t know what that book is, there are always gift vouchers. I love flicking through cook books and sewing books. Here’s a neat way to wrap them with a piece of fabric or a tea towel (dish cloth). When I get a chance to sit down and read, I usually read crime novels and biographies. Michael Connelly is my favourite author. I own almost all of his books and I’m looking forward to reading The Burning Room. It’s the latest in his Harry Bosch series and they never fail to keep me up reading half the night.
I also love an excuse to add to the boys’ library. I adore childrens books, especially the illustrations. Every book has a different style. I’ve recently discovered Herve Tullet and can’t wait to read some of his books with Roman. They engage kids in a way I’ve never seen before…so clever! What’s your go-to Christmas gift?
