It’s only October 10th but oh boy the marketing companies are sure getting ahead of the game. So far today I have had eight emails from different companies about Christmas! “Order now before stocks run out”! “This offer is only for a few weeks”! and so on!!
I have to start thinking about Christmas soon as I have got three Christmas cakes and puddings to make as gifts and they have to sit for a while. I must also confess that I have already bought some gifts, for the Boys, because if I don’t get them (size wise!!!) then they will all be gone! Also I have got one gift for Youngest which he has wanted since last year and they only appear at Christmas so I did buy those! I have also made a list of things to get for gifts which I think the various recipients will like, which makes it easier when I get to do the actual Christmas shop.
Nottingham’s Market Square 2012
The supermarkets are already full of Christmas things, including the food, and it seems to be getting earlier and earlier when things appear and as much as I try and ignore it, you do get caught up in it! One person I know has already started playing Christmas music in their car and changed their ringtone to a popular Christmas song! Youngest is starting to play Christmas music on the piano for school and today the weather has turned from very warm at the start of the week to freezing cold and Eldest asking for the heating to be put on (not yet, put a jumper on!)
Of course Treacle is booked in for a hair cut next Wednesday which means it will definitely be really cold then!
Oh well that is my rant for today!!! I must get on now as there are only 75 days to go before December 25th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
