The countdown begins...

Christmas seems to come earlier each year ... a shame, as I like that rush at the end. By the time you are a grandmother a year seems like a day of childhood ... 'tis only the calendar that tells me different.

feel like I should append this with 'bah humbug', but those M&S adverts are really starting to grate a little ... Was talking to a friend this morning, and he said that his father believed christmas should just be one special day, so all the work was done on xmas eve (decos and everything), and not before ... A good idea, I think ... :-) All I'm looking forward to is seeing my mum and dad on xmas day, and the xmas eve carol service ...

It's so lovely when they are that young and still believe in santa and don't expect the earth. My youngest is off school with the latest bug going round as well.....i hope your wee one feels better soon. :-)

We had a policy, inherited from my wife's family, of putting up the tree and decorations on Christmas Eve and taking them down on Twelfth Night. Not bad for atheists/agnostics I thought. The creeping early sales pitches don't only apply at this season though. One of our local shops usually starts selling hot cross buns around about advent.

Thank you Roy and the same to you and yours x Tanith hope your wee one doesn't catch any of these nasty bugs. Thankfully mine are well and truly on the mend now!
