I have to admit that I hate shopping. At shopping centres. I can't think of anything worse than searching for that elusive parking spot or worse, resorting to "stalking" (you know what I mean? Spotting an obviously shopped out shopper, copious bags in hand, following them back to their car, then waiting sheepishly while they load bags in to the car and take their sweet time vacating the parking spot...sorry. I digress...).
The sheer thought of Christmas shopping this year had me reeling. Wasting time, wandering from store to store, getting frustrated with out-of-stock items, sore feet and a sore shoulder from carrying bags, etc.
