Whew! Well, I hope you’ve ordered everything from Gadgets.co.uk that you wanted for Christmas, because as of 1pm today we can no longer guarantee any orders will be received in time for the big day! As I sit here and look out of the window it is indeed suitably festive outside, with the snow getting me even more into the Christmas spirit. Unfortunately I don’t think Mandy would feel the same way about the snow, after it took her about 6 hours to get home last night!
As well as the snow causing travel chaos for many yesterday evening yesterday was of course the Winter Solstice, and as such the shortest day of the year. As usual loads of people turned out to Stone Henge to observe the Pagan festivities. Of course I probably need not mention that there were great festivities in my household on Sunday evening as Rage Against The Machine were announced as the Christmas Number One for 2009. On the other side of the coin there were many disappointed fans of the X-Factor winner, but I don’t doubt that he’ll be Number 1 next week, and have success in the years and months ahead.
With our final ordering day just about over now, we can start to wind down now here at Gadgets Towers and really gear up to enjoying our own Christmas. The Christmas songs can be turned up, the mince pies and Christmas cake brought out, and the festive spirit can really take hold. I’ll leave you with another of my favourite Christmas songs for today. I’m not normally a big fan of Mariah Carey, but this is definitely one of my Christmas favourites!
