I know there is a specific date on which it usually arrives, but can't remember what it is!

Im sure it's the end of this month.

I was wondering the exact same thing.

Marking my place and waiting for the poncetastic one to enlighten us all!

Oooh, this sounds interesting if it's so eagerly awaited. What's the poncetastic Christmas thread about?

BeaWheesht Thu 05-Sep-13 20:24:42

It's usually on 24th September I think. I know because its dd's birthday smile

TerraNotSoFirma Thu 05-Sep-13 20:32:06

Great minds think alike, I was wondering the same tonight.

I think it's 24th or 25th September - 3 months to Christmas Eve/Day.

DearPrudence Thu 05-Sep-13 22:22:19

Sorry James - it's a thread about having a poncetastic Christmas grin

Here's the link to the 2010 one - can't find last year's one!

Last year we had a build up thread started like this one, where we all got excited and counted down the days to the actual thread. I don't know if I shall try so hard this year after the flu wiped out all my hard earned plans. It literally took all my effort to get out of bed and dd ended up eating pot noodle for Christmas dinner blush sad

I had grand poncey plans last year, but I ended up being a non-ponce.
I hardly ponced at all.

I bought the Sarah Raven book, and that appeared to be the peak of my 2012 poncery.

This should be a bumper year due to all the berries and fruity stuff around. Maybe I'll go blackberrying this weekend, and get ready for berry vodka?

grin grin grin

Ya mo be there.
Bring it onnnnn . I love a Poncetastic Christmas.

My DH was judgey at me buying some butter knives.
To think I bred with this man hmm

VoldemortsNipple Thu 05-Sep-13 23:28:59

Oh yes the Sarah Raven book. That book would have made me lose the will to pounce if I had opened it more than once. Who knew people made plans for floral arrangements at Christmas, more tan picking up a posh bouquet at Asda grin

Last majorly ponced in 2010, when we last hosted. It is our turn again this year so preparing myself for serious poncery!

Yes, it won't be long before we all embrace our inner domestic goddess, and try to out-do ourselves from the last time!

In short, cooking and entertaining like our favourite chefs, decorating our homes as in those posh interiors magazines, handcrafting beautiful things, and making all our family/friends/neighbours green with envy. Sadly none of the above are compatible with illness.

Yay, I love the poncetastic threads! grin I did loads last year and said I wasn't going to do any this year, but whaddya know, here I am! grin Bring it on!

Morgause Fri 06-Sep-13 09:22:46

I shall observe from a distance. DH does all the Christmas cooking due to a desire for it to be edible.

Cannot wait to ponce.

I moved house on 22nd December last year (yes, i'm that mental) so didn't have a chance to reach my full poncing potential. This year is my year...

Rubybrazilianwax Sat 07-Sep-13 10:04:49

I'm looking forward to ponceing and have begun already by gathering a big bag of pinecones this week [smug]

CatAmongThePigeons Sat 07-Sep-13 14:55:30

I fancy poncing my way to Christmas, we are hosting this year so I really want to be poncetastic. grin

WantAnOrange Sat 07-Sep-13 15:51:21

Oh good, I'm watching Arthur Christmas right now and was starting to worry I'd gone slightly mad thinking about Christmas already...

to be fair it was DS's idea to watch it.

Rubybrazilianwax Sat 07-Sep-13 17:48:53

Did you all see the thread on Christmas pinterest boards? here it should give you all plenty of poncetastic inspiration

IsaacCox Thu 12-Sep-13 18:29:16

I'm just bumping this because I want to get excited for poncing! grin

I've decided what my handmade Christmas cards are going to be like today smile
