Lucy, they now do Yankee Candles in there too (and some of them are half price as well wink )

lucysmam Fri 06-Jan-12 21:00:23

I'll look forward to it lol

PeanutButterCupCake Fri 06-Jan-12 22:13:55

Evening all, am sad the festive smileys have gone sad
lucysmam I'm a Yankee addict [fblush]
Welcome cavemandave what went wrong this year?

molepom Fri 06-Jan-12 22:17:44

Another yankee addict here and proud of it - even got a mate into it who didnt see the fuss (she now spends more on it that I do!)

PeanutButterCupCake Fri 06-Jan-12 22:25:46

The Christmas ones are lush mole
I'm over run with them at the minute, Christmas and a December birthday grin

molepom Fri 06-Jan-12 22:26:28

I have Welcome Christmas and Christmas Eve, there's not as many I like this year as there was last year.

molepom Fri 06-Jan-12 22:26:59

Warm woollen mittens is nice as well

(I can talk about yankee candles all day)

I love the mulled wine and spice ones, the Christmas cookie/ cupcake is lively too. Am loving the samplers so you can change regularly!

molepom Sat 07-Jan-12 10:28:27

There's a mulled wine and spice one? I missed that one.

PeanutButterCupCake Sat 07-Jan-12 10:49:02

Two separate ones I meant grin think the spice one was sparkling cinnamon?

molepom Sat 07-Jan-12 10:53:21

I wasnt keen on that one but I'm gutted about missing the mulled wine one

molepom Sat 07-Jan-12 10:56:05

OK, found a sampler on Amazon and ordered it.

PeanutButterCupCake Sat 07-Jan-12 13:16:20

Excellent grin
I've now discovered I can burn the samplers and when the wick runs out put the remaining wax in the burner....double burn time!
I love Yankee, wonder if they need any fragrance testers?

molepom Sat 07-Jan-12 14:47:46

OMG! I never thought of that! I've just thrown a jar away with a good 1/2 inch left in the bottom.

PeanutButterCupCake Sat 07-Jan-12 16:38:15

Fish it out of the bin! Go rescue it grin

molepom Sat 07-Jan-12 16:49:09

Cant, bin was Thursday. sad

LordOfTheFlies Sat 07-Jan-12 23:50:42

YY I chip the last bit out of the jar to go in the tart burner.
And the spent wax in the tart burner goes in the bin under the bin-liner to scent it.

Oooh, nothing beats good mulled wine at a German Christmas market. Not long, only 11 months to go grin

Candles? Ha ha, yes if I ever got rid of the dog and the child I might actually attempt having some.

SalamiPizza Sun 08-Jan-12 10:05:08

Oh, and trying out Salami at the moment. What do you think?

PeanutButterCupCake Sun 08-Jan-12 10:30:27

I'm not to keen on salami, it's my least fave toppinggrin
I like mama...boohooooo.
What about pepperoni? Yum!

PeanutButterCupCake Sun 08-Jan-12 10:31:42

Good idea lotf

lucysmam Sun 08-Jan-12 12:11:35

Well, we didn't make it to town yesterday, or today....only me who could be arsed to go & really not in the mood now. DP in a strop about nothing in particular & the kids are still in pj's so I will just look for bargainous ribbon or bows on Tuesday when I nip in instead.

Have added my 1st item of food shopping to this weeks list for next xmas (cue another hmm look from dp)

PeanutButterCupCake Tue 10-Jan-12 13:23:35

Morning all grin

Just checking in. First day back at work tomorrow, am but scared!

How is everyone?

mama/salami what did you decide name wise?
I've started a thread, I want a new witty/ edgy name but can't think of one!

Please can I join? got a bit excited when I spotted this thread.
I have so far got cards, wrapping and gift tags from clintons all wrap had 75% off. I was really happy when I spotted the packs of cards for ds reception year for 25p in marks and spencers, I got 3 and whilst I was passing I nipped into card factory and picked up 10 rolls for £1 (not the best quality but its for my own 3 ds's who don't pay any attention to the wrap)
My aim is to get 1 to 2 extended family gifts popped away each month then hopefully I won't be racing around like a lunatic the week before Christmas.

MamaPizza Wed 11-Jan-12 06:03:07

I am back to Mama, Salami didn't look right.

All the best for going back today. I hope it will all go well.

I wish they'd stop stocking Christmas chocolate at Lidl. I am fat enough grin

Welcome, worn. You got some great bargains there.
