Well we are ready for Christmas day tomorrow. We have just got everyone small gifts this year and have also bought everyone a gift from Oxfam and we've asked that our family donate to charity instead of giving us gifts this year. You might think I'm being a bit of a grinch but the rampant consumerism at this time of year really bugs me. Buying presents for people who don't really need or want those things just because that's what you're supposed to strikes me as really wasteful. I'd rather give that money to someone who really needs it.
Anyway, Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you have a lovely day tomorrow. (remember to eat lightly tonight, you're gonna need that space tomorrow :)
