|This what not the image that greeted me in shops today.|
The shelves were bare.
One of the things Hubby likes to do when Christmas shopping is making sure we've got the best price. Now don't get me wrong here, I won't pay over the top prices if I know I can get the same item cheaper somewhere else, but I'm not going to quibble too much over a few dollars, especially if getting that couple of dollar savings means I have to walk from one end of the shopping mall to the other. Yet that's what I got coerced into doing today and I now find myself without a present for one little miss who was so hoping to get a Zhu Zhu pet for Christmas. You see, by the time we'd gone from Target, where there were Zhu Zhu pets on the shelves in the morning, and then to Kmart, Myer, David Jones, Big W & Mr Toys, we realised that the only shop you could get "girl" Zhu Zhu pets was back at Target. So by the time we finally got back to the toy section of Target, there were no Zhu Zhu pets left. Nada. We were Zhu Zhu late!
And guess who is now going to have to source the missing Zhu Zhu by next week? It certainly won't be Hubby. He's too busy entering data regarding Christmas Day lunch into an Excel spreadsheet ... fx = SUM(A20:C6)/3 Yep, that should be just the right amount of food for everyone.
