Shops were absolutely packed, and it's only going to get worse between now and the big day. I wanted something from one particular jeweller but the shop was so crowded I ended up going elsewhere for a while, going back after the crush had left. Parking wasn't the trauma I thought it would be, though. I was able to get a space straight away in the first row I drove down.
Also bought another packet of certificates so I could finish off the last few Best of Breed awards I need for next weekend. Came home and did them up straight away then packed them in my bag so I don't forget to take them with me.
