Can we not at least get the summer hols over before we are subjected to farking Christmas?

Bah Bloody Humbug angry

I don't think that MN Towers have done anything to activate it though have they? It's just people reviving threads from last year. Why they feel the need to do that in August I don't know.

I feel the same. It's depressing.

Well, this 'summer' has been utter shite here.

And I've now finished all my shopping before the baby's born and before we get into debt over impulse buying.


Going to start posting about the homemade gifts now.

Finished it off today at the Cowal Gathering.

Official Cowal Gathering tshirts for the Americans, they'll love 'em, and Springbank whisky for FIL - he'll enjoy it.

I wasn't sure; it certainly isn't in the topic list and you can't start a new thread....or this would be in there!

I hate having to hide things though as I never remeber to unhide them, then come the end of October when I need them I won't be able to see any Christmas threads and I'll be wondering why I can't find the "great shopping sites" thread.

Tis madness.

Oh yes - will definitely be hiding the Christmas topic. We couldn't do that last year.

Ooooh, expat, I heart the Cowal Peninsula grin

We stayed in a lovely cottage in Kilfinnan a few years ago on hols and fell in love with the place.

i think you can start new threads .... i'm sure i did already blush did it on the basis that those of you who don't want to discuss it yet can hide that topic.

zippitippitoes Sat 30-Aug-08 21:20:43

cant hide it because it isnt in the list of topics

simple answer put it in the topics and we can hide it

but they wont

fryalot Sat 30-Aug-08 21:21:40

we could just hide the threads that have been resurrected though

CantSleepWontSleep Sat 30-Aug-08 21:22:54

No, you revived last year's 'how much have you spent' thread na angry.

nappyaddict Sat 30-Aug-08 21:25:20

ah no you are right. it was sea that started the one the other day not me.

LackaDAISYcal Sat 30-Aug-08 21:31:46

or they could just wipe it and we could start afresh in say.......November? <hopeful>

fryalot Sat 30-Aug-08 21:32:12

November 31st then.

if it's activated tho it will just vindicate them

we should have a special humbug emoticon to fend em off with

Cappuccino Sat 30-Aug-08 21:33:43

a man in a brown hat waving a stick should do nicely

Hi there

We haven't 'reactivated' the Christmas topic yet - some of us at MN Towers haven't even finished our summer hols yet!

Someone just resurrected a thread from last year (which is why you couldn't hide it).

No word yet on when the topic will be officially 're-opened'. Give us a while to shake the sand off our clothes first...

Helen - how come sea managed to start the jingle bells thread then?
