A decent number of presents have now been purchased and while there is little chance of any of them being seen before they are wrapped up, I decided to have a mass wrapping session. Gift wrapping seems to be a bit of a dark art. Sometimes I seem to be able to have mastered it, other times I’m wrap as if I was missed out on opposable thumbs! I wish I could say that it was just some of the very odd shaped gifts that cause problems, but even the regular ones seem to leave behind a ball of messed up sticky tape and incorrectly cut paper. I do at least like to think that where I have options, I think carefully about what people will like, and I hope that I have hit the mark again this year. There were certainly a couple of moments of inspiration was I wondered around the shops, especially the ones that are for friends where I have more freedom to choose.
