... well it's been a busy last weekend making sure everything's perfect for the official start of Christmas in 4 days, grin, but the tree' now up and decorated, last minute presents wrapped, cards written and ready to be posted, chest freezers all full to the brim with festive goodies, Christmas bedding on, food order done, my 6 secret santas sorted! I can now relax with mulled wine in front of the fire and my DH can get his DW back! - Each year it gets more manic but this year's been worse than I can remember despite it feeling like it's taken over my life since the kids went back in September!

Christmas prep? It's not December yet...

I'm guessing you're the type to be fed up and take down the tree by boxing day!

Crumblevision Sun 27-Nov-16 20:38:38

Have you all out smugged yourselves in Smugsville OP? <head tilt>

I bought one present last week, otherwise all still to do.
Won't the Christmas bedding be a bit mankey by Christmas?

DorothyL Sun 27-Nov-16 20:40:22

Christmas bedding????????

FlyingElbows Sun 27-Nov-16 20:40:31

It's November.

I've just started a thread about this. It's madness confused

Surely you're utterly sick of the whole thing by mid December?

DorothyL Sun 27-Nov-16 20:41:09

Since September? (Faints)

Littledrummergirl Sun 27-Nov-16 20:41:35

The sprouts didn't go on until the middle of October so I am so far behind!
Every year I mean to start them in July- maybe next year. grin

Since September? (Faints)

As DH has now got you back, do you also have your sexy santa outfit on?

LagunaBubbles Sun 27-Nov-16 20:42:16

Is this a stealth boast about what a fab life you have because you're so "busy, busy, busy" hmm

Sparklingbrook Sun 27-Nov-16 20:42:25

<checks calendar>

Nope it's still November. You are a bit previous OP.


Floggingmolly Sun 27-Nov-16 20:42:27

Has been? Don't be silly, it's not even December yet. You're so far ahead of yourself you're in danger of meeting yourself coming back.
What's the rush?

Claireshh Sun 27-Nov-16 20:43:12


I've done nothing!

Boundaries Sun 27-Nov-16 20:43:41

It's like premature chrijaculation.

Floggingmolly Sun 27-Nov-16 20:44:28

Boundaries grin

My 'official' start of Christmas is today, Advent Sunday.

So church, of course.

Crumblevision Sun 27-Nov-16 20:45:34

Christmas bedding? I am speechless. Did you have special bedding for Thanksgiving too? And Halloween? And Dia de los Muertos?

I bet OP has bedding with each day of the week embroidered on grin

Moomintroll85 Sun 27-Nov-16 20:46:21

Last minute presents wrapped? It's still November confused

Is your DH father christmas or something?
