Still shopping?...

       why?... when you could be out carol singing
                    sewing                                                                        learning a new language                                         
reading a good book                                                       or magazine

                        knitting                                                                                           or decorating the tree

after all... you've posted your Christmas cards                                                       and baked your cake

so... go and get your hair done                     and have a night out
