The Weekend is here and this post is not about the weekend


Good morning all in blogland hope everyone is fairing nicely after Christmas Day, yesterday I was bloody busy again and just didn't feel like doing much of anything. I however, go out shopping in the morning and before I could settle down for the rest of the day I had to take Leo’s DS charger down to him.

On Boxing Day afternoon Kelli and Daemon came back here, and she spent some time putting his first bike/trike together. He loves it she takes him out the front on it for a little bit each day and of course he doesn't want to come back inside after she gets tired from pushing him around.
Do you have Boxing Day sales where you are?

We don't have them here in Newie but some areas do and of course they have them in Sydney, even if we did I wouldn't bother to go to them. As far as I am concerned most of the discounted items will be around for a few days or even a week or so. Yes there are some that are “until sold out” but really I just can't be bothered with such crowds. I don’t do crowds well, yes I manage them better than many of my family members but to be honest I would rather go to the shops when they are less crowded.

I do buy a lot of my Christmas decorations and Christmas cards after Christmas when they are half priced and picked up some yesterday when I went out to the shops. Although it was bloody crowded yesterday I can tell you. I wasn't at the square that long, just had brekkie  with the family and then ventured down to the shops to get a few things and then home again. I did my food shopping at Warners Bay as usual and it was nowhere near as crowded.


Christmas Day was hot, Boxing Day was muggy, yesterday was hot again, this morning is ok here got the front door open and it doesn't feel that hot but it is only 7.30am so it may still heat up although it is only supposed to be around 26°C.

  1. Thankfully where I live a lot of stores don't open on Boxing Day which I think is right as workers need that time to wind down after the hype of Christmas day the next day... not to be rushing in to work with a hang over and stomach upset from eating too much. There are of course the odd ones open which people are said to be queuing up since 3am in order to get a bargain, apparently its much worse in places where all shops are open like normal the next day as people really hurt each other in order to be there first. I didn't go out and even today we went to a really quiet part of the city in order to miss it all.

    1. I agree I just don't know why so many stores feel the need to be open

  2. Money, money, money. The stores are open to make $$. They advertise sales when they raise the price only to lower it making you think you're getting a deal! I stay put!!

    1. Yes it is all about the $ and why on earth some people feel the need to go out to shops every day spending money they don't have or can't spare on stuff they don't need is beyond me

  3. I agree, the stores are open 24/7 here trying to get every dollar they can from us all.
    It seems so weird that it is winter here and you all are having summer. I have always wanted to visit Australia.

  4. We don't have Boxing Day here in the States. But, in Philadelphia, we have "Beat the Snot Out of the Guy In Front of You in the Returns Line."
    So that's gotta count for something.

    1. Oh the joys of the returns line, yeah I have seen some nasty old ladies in the returns line, the old ones seem to think they have a right to get served first doesn't matter that people are in front of them

  5. We have after-Christmas sales. I don't go, but I don't go anywhere most of the time.

    Love,

    1. I usually don't venture out to the after Christmas sales till a few days after Christmas as I don't like crowds that much.

  6. As the others have mentioned we don't have Boxing Day but the first few days after Christmas are nightmarish with the returns and people trying to get bargains. I try not to get out unless it's for groceries.
