Christmas Shopping Done

There are not a lot of things in the world I like to do less than go shopping (retail therapy for example makes absolutly no sense to me) so I was pretty pleased that I managed to do all my Christmas shopping on Sunday afternoon (except for one thing which I bought on the way to work this morning and I knew where I was going and what I wanted so it was pretty easy).

I also managed to buy these things from 6 locations:
Oxfam, TEAR, Hoyts, Kmart, Gleebooks, and Emma’s Secret. Except for Kmart (in which I only bought one thing) I actually feel good about shopping from these places. Oxfam and TEAR go without saying; Gleebooks I feel okay about as it is an independent local shop and; Hoyts and Emma’s secret I feel alright about as I am giving people an experience that they will use rather than a piece of junk which will eventually become more stuff in the tips.

And we even got to fit in a movie for ourselves as well. We saw Australia. I actually quite liked it. While the characters weren’t well rounded and some of it a bit cliche it was enjoyable. It won’t go down as one of my favourites or anything but for the first time in awhile I didn’t leave feeling like I had been violated or with the weight of the world on my shoulders.
