Attheensoftheday and starjules - I agree with you, half my post is missing, I was trying to berate OP in the spirit of the post because she hasn't mentioned writing her cards yet. But it all got lost in the ether hmm

Exactly attheendoftheday. It's not like its a discussion of the day, to see these you have to come and find them. I think its the grinch in disguise at trolls!

Can I politely (for the millionth time) suggest that people who don't want to talk about christmas hide the christmas section?

lucysmam Tue 13-Aug-13 16:48:08

haha bamboo, I am nearly done name taping too grin .....just polo shirts but avoiding getting them just yet because last year dd1 had a growth spurt literally two weeks after going back so the ones she has have been a bit half-mast ish iyswim?

Oh for goodness sake this is crazy - it's AUGUST,
why haven't you written all your cards... honestly <wanders off shaking head in bewilderment>

bamboozled Tue 13-Aug-13 13:04:36

I think it would only be fair to invite you round to do my name tapes and tidy my house, to save you from yourself - I'd be doing you a favour really! We could wait for the ketchup shampoo update with wine

lucysmam Tue 13-Aug-13 12:58:51

sprouts would not last until xmas in this house if I even thought about putting them on now.....dp and dd1 hoover the things up ....dd2 pulls "sprout face" ....a combination of shock envy hmm and confused all at once grin

70isaLimitNotaTarget Mon 12-Aug-13 22:58:17

lucysmam - I hope you've got the sprouts on a simmering boil at the moment (all this shillyshallying round with a Stocking and her sprouts will still be raw. You need to be able to eat them with a straw lucy - a straw )

I don't do a stocking for DH but I do for my DC.
And I;ve already got a china mug for my DD Christmas Eve Hamper (smug)

lucysmam Mon 12-Aug-13 22:43:18

grin Slainte yep that'd go down well.....probably not take long to fill up hmm

korma I wouldn't do it but I tend to get v. stressed about even small 'events' so like to know what I'm doing and be fairly organised well in advance.

Oh, just remembered I've bought this for my DSis, would it be something your DH might like?

Slainte Mon 12-Aug-13 22:13:31

You're not alone lucysmam, I've done loads of Christmas buying/organising today. I was so behind last year and felt really stressed so I'm not going to let that happen this year.

Saying all that, I can't help you with your request but will keep an eye out for you.

lucysmam Mon 12-Aug-13 21:58:52

<looks around> erm....nope! Nothing whatsoever!

The sewing pile is up to date, I don't iron, finished my book , nowt on the box, house is clean and tidy other than what I'm using....

May as well plan xmas and save myself the stress when it comes rolling around grin (I will forget to mention I have already started shopping for non perishable food stuff as well)

Oh for goodness sake! People like you who leave it until the last minute and then come on here and expect MN to magically sort it out for you are just irresponsible. I think you should already be planning for Christmas 2014 if you are going to have any chance of getting it all done in time. hmm

grin wink
Ask me again in the third week of December when I'm starting to think about Christmas.

lucysmam Mon 12-Aug-13 21:46:27

he'll get the socks/pants/thermals (for work) like the kids....and eclairs because they are his favourite sweet....

Am going to try and find a footy related toothbrush and toothpaste to go in. Will stick a lynx deodorant in (he usually sticks with asda or wilko) and probably shower gel.

Anyone know where I can get a decent sized aftershave tester? or bottle of Joop for not too much?

(He usually has the latest COD or Modern Warfare or whatever it's called xbox game and a bottle of bacardi in there too).

Any other suggestions would be good so i can crack on over the next few weeks, then it's onto the bigger bits once 'back to school' is sorted.
