    I`m usually like that but this year has gone to pot. :? I blame all the lovely people on here holding me back:p Gotta blame somebody. Then of course you gotta check not missing any good deals in the supermarkets. lol

    I go out early on Xmas eve and get my salad ,bread etc. Then I try and go back a couple of hours before the shops shut. That really gets me in the Xmas mood. I just love the Xmassy mood around then.:-D

    Thought I was set but now realise I may need to get one more small gift for my parents.
