Is anyone else fed up with receiving Christmas catalogues in September?
I have already made a note of a few bits from the Lakeland catalogue which would make good presents for friends. I like to feel organised.
A friend said that she had had her first mince pie last week..........why? oh, why?
I love Halloween, though!
In Tesco yesterday, I meandered into the Christmas comestibles aisle and stood, mouth agape, looking at chocolate Santas and the like. It's still more than three months to Christmas!
Same experience in my local Coop. This is the only supermarket we have and I could not believe that so much of the shop had been taking up by tins of chocolate and mince pies and such like.
Before I even received an unsolicited Christmas catalogue, I saw cards in some shops-we'd just gone back to school!
I have no interest in Christmas shopping before the October half-term! Even then, it's with reluctance; the annual frenzy drives me crazy!
"No, no, no" Christmas before Christmas, in the words of the late lamented. And even then keep it to two days at most. For goodness sake!
