We’re stepping back from the grid for the holidays. I heard on the news that the most searched-for items on Cyber Monday were Kindle Fires and Uggs. Well, maybe because I already have a Fire and once had some Ugg slippers (since dog-devoured), but I have agreed with Gil and Maud to keep a tight lid on domestic spending this Christmas. I won’t say how low the lid is, it sounds ridiculous, but I will say that there will be quite a few knitted presents emanating from my hearth. Probably some preserves, too.
Who is this for? I won’t say. Maybe Santa.
Now, this doesn’t mean that anyone else planning a gift for me should necessarily put a lid on their spending…!
