Christmas christmas christmas. I'm too laid back and all a bit last minute. And i have DH birthday to contend with on Chrismtas Eve as well. I'd like to be one of these that plan well ahead and start buying bits in October but it's just not me but i don't let it wind me up. I leave it all till december, get as much online as I can, but i make a list and make an night of the late night shopping. Go and get my last few presents and reward myself with a Starbucks after (to me that's a treat!) The Christmas day meal I just treat like my normal roast, it just has one or 2 extra bits. So just get everything in my normal food shop. We don't have a set time for xmas day meal, just go with the flow. Think we had it about 3pm by chance last year.
