I've still got quite a bit to do too.

I'm kind of hoping if I don't panic, it will all get done eventually. fsmile

It usually works out alright in the end.

ChestyDog vomming and feeling bit queasy myself.

MrsC it will I know, but every year I say this will be the ear I'm finished by Decemer 1st and err yet it gets to about this time and I start to panic that I'm not done
But I have never ever sat back on Christmas Day and thought 'I wish I could've got this, u wish I'd have done that' so I don't know why I panic so much
It'll all come together, it's only one day!

That could be me talking !

I know I'll always be shopping up to Christmas Eve, because you just 'do' !

And you're right, come Christmas Day, no-one misses what you didn't get, everyone just enjoys what they do !

<makes mental notes...stuffing for balls, pigs in blankets, check lists, check lists, check lists> fgrin

Hellllooooooooooooo ! Chesty fsmile

Sorry to hear ChestyDog is not well, poor little love. Tell him he's got to get better to have a bit of turkey. xxx

It's getting to that silly stage now. Lots of singing festive songs, muttering to myself, looking at daft tops and jumpers I can inflict on family members ! Oooh, and hats ! I have seen some fantastic hats that I could lovingly purchase that they then feel obliged to wear.

<evil cackle>

Eek two weeks! That snuck up a bit didn't it?!

We've had the tree up for 8 days, yet today I found the bag of tree chocolates i bought a few weeks ago in the kitchen cupboard, I'd completely forgotten about them! Don't know whether to squeeze them on and have a very overcrowded tree or just eat them.

chesty sorry you and chestydog aren't feeling well. Still there's worse things that cuddling up with a dog and a blanket.

EAT THEM ! fgrin

I have just taken delivery of some lovely scene setters, (yes I am that naff) and a few (ahem) window lights.

Found a great bargain on ebay as our net lights gave up the ghost last year and it was horrible without them.

Except my Dh has gone a bit mad. I won the lights at a bargainous price, felt very chuffed. Until I actually looked at the size.

We have a 4ft ish wide window. The net lights are 4.2 metres, with 300 led lights.

Oops. fblush fgrin
