Al and Dilly spent three hours making up vegetable orders tonight, arriving home after 11.30. The Sage babysat. I wrapped presents. This is remarkable – I don’t think I’ve ever wrapped presents this early before. Still, at least we haven’t got a Christmas tree up yet, so there isn’t too keen an air of preparedness.
I haven’t bought the Sage a present yet either. Pfft. Still two shopping days left. Well, three I suppose, but I won’t have time on Sunday.
Al and I will go into the shop at 6 tomorrow morning to set things up. All his assistants will be arriving at 8.30 – with five of them, there will hardly be room for customers.
