|I'd rather have sweets|
I do a lot of window shopping when I’m a tourist and a lot more when I’m Christmas shopping. It’s more fun when I’m a tourist. At Christmas it’s either too expensive, they’ve already got one, or I know they’ll never use it.
And sometimes – sometimes you fall madly in love with whatever is on the other side of that window and you just have to have it.

Not that that’s ever happened to me of course. Just saying.

The Modern version of window shopping is browsing on the net. We can find anything our heart desires with a few clicks. The right movie, a new pair of shoes, a great deal, or the perfect beach. Makes me wonder why we need so many shoes – we sure aren’t wearing them out.

With Christmas only a couple of months away I’ll probably start out the old-fashioned way – trekking from store to store - but as the weather gets colder and colder, I’ll probably finish it up the modern way – on my butt – and ‘let my fingers do the walking’.
I just hope I don’t ‘fall in love’ with too many windows.
