LATE NIGHT OPENING......
Hope you are all well and getting to grips the Christmas Shopping!!!!!!!!
Well it is that time of year. I've worked out that I only have 9 days off until Christmas, and that's not including Sunday 23rd!!! I really ought to get my arse into gear and get on with the present buying! Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas and all the buying, wrapping and putting decorations up! But it's coming up with the ideas of what to buy people. The female members of the family are no problem, they're easy and fun to buy for, but my family is dominated by men and boys!!!! Oh hell!!!!!! It's just so hard!!! My husband is a joy to buy for and I always have far too many ideas for him. So I have 14 male members of the family to buy for and only 5 female members of the family!!! I really won't have any hair left this year!!!! So if any of you have got good ideas for teenage/twentysomethings male presents please let me know!!!!
So onto the subject of late night opening....
Petworth does this for one night only! And it is always on the first Saturday in December, so this year it is on Saturday 1st December!!
