Christmas stockpile


For the first time in about 6 years, we will not be making Christmas lunch. Instead we'll be visiting family and friends. It's a nice change, but I have still have this urge to go to the supermarket and stockpile food.

There's a voice inside me saying: "Quick! The shops will be shut for a couple of days and you never know what you might need!" Which is completely ridiculous because a) I'm sure there will be more than enough food where ever we go and b) I live in an inner suburb of Australia's largest city - I'm sure if I need something I'll be able to find it somewhere.

Despite knowing all this, I still got up early this morning (well, I always get up early any way) and went to the supermarket to try and beat the crowds. I wheeled the girls around Coles and it wasn't too painful, except for this nagging voice in my head saying "Don't forget the paper towel! We may need to wipe up something and the shops won't be open. Don't forget the dip! We may want to snack or have unexpected visitors. Don't forget the mineral water! We may want to cool off with a cold drink." It's like there's an catastrophic event about to take place and the only way to survive is stockpile party food and drink.

I think I have stocked the pantry enough to avert any festive fracas. I hope you're all enjoying the silly season too.
