Family photos and a brief letter to go in each card (probably can't get that done for another 2 weeks).

Presents for DH
Maybe presents for my dad & step-mum (I am not sure if they care if I send some or not)
Posting the cards out
Am not sure about DC's presents or stocking fillers, they don't make their minds up until the very last minute, anyway!

We are not entertaining so may not even bother to get a turkey.

Don't think I can face Advent calendars; DC just scoff the lot in first 3 days, anyway (that's assuming one of the pets doesn't beat them to it).

And I re-use wrapping paper from last year, so nothing to buy there (whew!)

Wrapping. And buy chocs for the reusable advent calendars.

I wrote my xmas cards during half term blush

Got the last presents this morning. Stocking for ds already sorted. Just wrapping to do (had run out of paper but that sorted today)
Parcels to post on 1st of December (otherwise people comment if they arrive too early - and still waiting for school photos to put in grandparent parcels anyhow).

And then the decorations to put up of course...
