Now the holiday season is beginning to get a grip on us. The commercial and update tv channels are just full of blissfully happy children and their slightly dazed looking parents all having a truly spiffing time – one ad shows a little sweetipops with a glistening pool entirely to herself. That would be impossible to imagine if she really was on her hols in the regular school holiday period – where are the other 500 other little ones?
The advertising world is so powerful now, it’s hard not to be swayed in a particular direction – but for some of us, with immensly strong will power, there is online shopping. This has been such a boon – dedicated sites available to find every imaginable item needed and me only having to have my list of ‘must haves’ and I’m there browsing in luxury.
