Is this not cheating???!! Still new to MN so not sure on etiquette of cheating of old threads!! confused especially when you've announced the countdown number early...if we're playing dirty then 98 for tomorrow and no hoovering of keyboard needed 😂!!

Can you jump in this late if you've only been lurking pretty much on the previous ones? If so, Hellooooo fellow festive people! I'm nearly up to date on my prep'n'presents spreadsheet and have even managed to drag a few sceptics to join me IRL. fgrin

70isaLimitNotaTarget Fri 15-Sep-17 22:14:30

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo, not cheating at ALL

Crosses fingers behind back and twitches.

Don't mention the bloody Twitch! I know it's going to get me!

FridgeCut Fri 15-Sep-17 22:15:49

Hello Rugger! Welcome!

So, will anyone else be doing some sort of meal on thanksgiving in a trial run / start (almost) of the season type way?

NoWordForFluffy Fri 15-Sep-17 22:17:21

Nope, nothing for Thanksgiving here. It's only a roast dinner really, so no practising required! (She says!)

FrankiesKnuckle Fri 15-Sep-17 22:20:37

I posted in chat about any good AliExpress finds (no replies)
Any info on electricals (think small gadgets or accessories)
Beauty or jewelry would be helpful!

FridgeCut Fri 15-Sep-17 22:21:43

I don't need to practice, I am an expert, but I feel like it might be a good excuse to eat a big dinner confused
Embarrassed: blush

FridgeCut Sat 16-Sep-17 00:14:38

Easy! Carrot soup with corn bread, nut roast with assorted seasonal veg and roasties, apple crumble with cream (coconut). And some appletiser.

Can I join in on this thread? Have been lurking on the others.

I am sadly nearly done with the kid's Xmas shopping and I'm wondering if it's too early to wrap?

HairsprayBabe Sat 16-Sep-17 06:53:10

Feels like it is judt around the corner now! I am getting rather excited!

NoWordForFluffy Sat 16-Sep-17 06:57:09

Stompy, I've already wrapped the kids' stuff! It's part of the hiding process!

NoWordForFluffy Sat 16-Sep-17 06:58:51

I get you now, Fridge!

No, I'm not that arsed about a big dinner (I'm not even doing a dinner on Christmas Day; I'm doing a roast on Boxing Day!).

MyPatronusIsABadger Sat 16-Sep-17 07:02:54

Hi, can I join in too please? I've been a lurker on this board for ages!

Fridge- we are having a thanksgiving of sorts, just moving to the weekend! It's a great idea! We were expats up until a few years ago so love it. It means I can have a last hurrah of the autumn decorations and slowly put them away to make room for the Christmas ones.

NoWordForFluffy Sat 16-Sep-17 07:07:07

What autumn decorations do you have, Patronus?

FireflyGirl Sat 16-Sep-17 07:12:11

Yey! 99 days and dinner with Fridge

We're not doing anything for Thanksgiving, per se. But it would have been my uncle's birthday at the end of the November, so we're having a family meal in his honour. Of fish and chips, though, because that's what he would order every time we went out grin

Stompy if it wasn't for the fact that the wrapping paper is in the loft, I'd have wrapped all of mine as well. I just haven't got up there to get it yet!
