So far this week I have seen:

Christmas gift wrap sets, Festive Friends and Christmas chocolates in Home Bargains

'Cheeseonal' Mini Cheddars in those drums with Christmas trees, snowmen etc on them in Tesco

Christmas Cards in the British Heart Foundation shop

Christmas candles in Asda

I noticed all the cards were out in the card factory the other day.

'Cheeseonal' Mini Cheddar

Love it
Whoever named that should get a raise.

Two card shops in our town have the Christmas stuff in and jonh lewis have christmas 2014 stuff on the website

A local gardening superstore chain (Dobbies - I think just in Scotland) has started putting out their christmas decs and cards. Completely ridiculous!

Cheeseonal,genius grin

Fergus we have Dobbies here too (Northumberland) and last year they had their Christmas stuff out by the end of September.

Our local Wetherspoon has a Christmas tree/decs behind the counter to advertise its 'book now for Christmas' thing.

In other news, there are only 20 Fridays until Christmas grin

0phelia - didn't know they were in North of England too. Then again, they're part of Tesco now so they'll prob be everywhere soon! I do love the xmas decs at Dobbies and always get a new something for the tree......but not in sodding Aug!

DD said she saw an Argos Christmas ad yesterday, with one of those bloody aliens wrapped in fairy lights. She must surely be mistaken...?

I'm not starting to think Christmas. I'm not!

But I have just been talking to my sister who is coming here for Xmas and I can't help it!

I want to concentrate on decluttering and reorganising my house. For Xmas. hmm

Biggest sign imo that its the run up is the X-Factor being advertised, all downhill from there grin
