Not long now !!

December 19th, 2011 · No Comments · edinburgh

Well its not long now till Christmas. I decided yesterday I would make the most of my day off and get up early to finish off my Christmas shopping.

My idea was to go to Primark first, it has only just opened in Edinburgh so I headed there full of enthusiasm, it was crazy!!  Everyone obviously had the same idea so after wandering up and down looking for Christmas inspiration we left only buying 3 gift bags at £1.00 each and queued up for 20 minutes to pay for them, of which my boyfriend thought I was insane. We then headed to George Street where all the posh shops and went to another new addition to Edinburgh shopping, Anthrapolgie – it has to be said it is completely the opposite  end of the scale to Primark. We picked up a cushion and I asked my beloved to guess the price, his estimate was £30 – wrong! £178 !!!!  After his eyes popped out his head and he stopped moaning about the prices, and saying we should go back to Primark! we then headed to the German market for glass of mulled wine, where we then started to enjoy the festive atmosphere. We left shortly afterwards with our 3 empty gift bags and decided “I” should probably just come back in to town later in the week  :-)

In Edinburgh we have a great selection of shops but it has to be said Primark was the busiest of them all, but those lovely shops in George Street are nice to wander in and you do get a lovely carrier bag if you buy something :-) – must be a girl thing that I think!

It seems so strange coming in to the Festival Apartments office today because the office is so calm compared to the furoe at the shops yesterday, which are only a five minute walk away.

Everything is ready for our New Year guests arriving to celebrate Hogmanay. Lots of guests have been asking me directions to the Edinburgh Zoo, I expect to see the new stars of the zoo, the pandas Tian Tina nd Yang Guang. I myself plan on getting the family up early on Christmas Day to visit them as the zoo is open everyday of the year and I am pretty sure it will be quiet on Christmas day when all the people with young families will still be opening all the parcels.

So enjoy the rest of the week and planning your perfect Christmas Day.
