CHRISTMAS is a little over three weeks away and Parade has done very little in the way of preparation.
Every year she says she will get on top of things next festive season, but it never happens.
The Christmas tree is up, looking amazing with all of its decorations, however there isn’t a single present beneath it.
That would be because Parade hasn’t done much of her shopping yet.
Parade has spent the past week saying she’ll wrap the two gifts she has purchased – they haven’t even made it in from the car yet.
As a result, Parade is suffering from a bad case of Christmas guilt, which only gets worse with every message she gets from her best friend stating all the gifts she’s bought.
Well, there’s always next year to be prepared.
Damsel borrows the armour
IT is know to many that Parade's car is old and getting somewhat unreliable.
Disaster struck on Tuesday night when the vehicle in question refused to start due a flat battery.
Parade, in panic mode, texted his significant other telling her the wait for help would see him very late home.
Upon hearing this, she drove across town to buy a set of jumper leads and subsequently came to his rescue.
Parade takes this as proof that sometimes you can have a knight in distress and a damsel in shining armor.
Keep an eye out
PARADE saw a lost property notice in the classifieds on Thursday.
It appears a resident has lost an iPad mini containing their precious holiday photos.
The notice states that the iPad was likely lost in Machattie Park near the entrance on the corner of George and Russell streets.
Anyone who finds the iPad is asked to take it to Bathurst Police Station.
The notice has struck a chord with Parade.
If it were any other piece of property, it would be easy enough to replace and move on, but you can’t replace photos and memories.
Parade hopes the iPad makes it back to the owner.
